Never-before-heard audio tapes of secret interviews with former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis have just been released by daughter Caroline Kennedy, and, be warned: they are pretty durn juicy. Ms. Onassis touched on subjects ranging from the unfortunate Bay of Pigs incident to civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. But it wasn’t all politics – according to Jackie O, who was, and is, considered to be a style legend of the ‘60’s, Dr. King was a stone cold F.R.E.A.K. who engaged in “sex parties” and who made derogatory remarks about JFK as his funeral. She even called him a “terrible man” – words that jab a creepy finger in the ribs of his iconic historical status. No, we’re not making this ish up.

Back in the ‘60’s, John Kennedy and Dr. King were good buds, but after JFK’s death Jackie’s relationship with Dr. King became strained. Wire taps were placed on King’s phone lines by the then director of the FBI, J. Edgar Hoover. According to the late Jackie, the taps recorded King allegedly trying to arrange an orgy while in town for the March on Washington in 1963.
“[JFK] told me of a tape that the FBI had of Martin Luther King when he was here for the freedom march,” Jackie said on the newly released tapes. “And he said this with no bitterness or anything, how he was calling up all these girls and arranging for a party of men and women, I mean, sort of an orgy in the hotel, and everything.” This has been disputed by some who claim that Hoover was trying to set King up and damage his reputation, and there is no evidence that he actually said these things.
Ms. Onassis went on about King, claiming that he made upsetting comments at

Closet freak?
her husband’s funeral, and that he “made fun of Cardinal Cushing and said that he was drunk at it. And things about they almost dropped the coffin.” She then adds, “Martin Luther King is really a tricky person.” In another interview she calls King  a “phony” and says, ‘I just can’t see a picture of Martin Luther King without thinking, you know, that man’s terrible.’
Jackie had ordered the tapes to be kept in the White House vault until 50 years after her death, afraid that her family would be targeted, which is where they stayed until her daughter recently decided to release them 33 years early (she died of cancer 17 years ago at age 64).  The tapes are also said to reveal her affairs with actor William Holden and Gianni Agnelli, the founder and owner of the auto brand Fiat, were revenge on her husband for his trysts with starlets such as Marilyn Monroe.
In other interviews on the tapes, Jackie admits that her husband found the situation in Vietnam “hopeless” and revealed his true feelings about Lyndon Johnson: “Jack said it to me sometimes. He said, ‘Oh, God, can you ever imagine what would happen to the country if Lyndon were president?” She added, ‘Bobby told me that he’d had some discussions with him. ‘I forget exactly how they were planning or who they had in mind. It wasn’t Bobby, but somebody. Do something to name someone else in ’68,” the cryptic tape reveals. Johnson was sworn in as president two hours after JFK was assassinated on November 22, 1963.
Wow. And we thought all that mafia chit was just a rumor.
ABC News will be airing the recordings on September 13th in a special hosted by Diane Sawyer. It’s our only hope that his alleged proclivity for sex parties won’t tarnish the true message and lifetime of work of Dr. King, and that America won’t lose sight of who the real slut was in that party.
Side Note: “Coincidentally”, ABC will ALSO be releasing a made-for-TV movie called “The Kennedys” this fall, with Katie Holmes starring as Jackie. I’m sure

No, not her.
the release of these tapes has absolutely NOTHING to do with ratings and everything to do with timely journalism. Oh… one second… I’m receiving a call… Hello? Horse Shit? Is that you?
