Carole radziwill dating
Bessette was born in White Plains, Westchester County, New York, the youngest child of William J.
Bessette, a cabinet maker, and Ann Messina, an academic administrator in the New York City public school system. Bessette's parents divorced when she was very young.
During her successful career there, she went from being a saleswoman in Boston's Chestnut Hill Mall to becoming the director of publicity for the company's flagship store in Manhattan.
Bessette and Kennedy began dating in 1994 and became a popular paparazzi target, and gossip columns detailed where they ate and shopped, and even covered their arguments.
Fincher said of Bessette-Kennedy, "She crafted herself, she re-invented herself, and invented that persona.
That's where I began." Pike searched unsuccessfully for audio of her, though she would concede her character should be created from the "outside in." In 2015, Wes Gordon, known for disliking discussion about the influences of his collections, admitted Bessette-Kennedy's impact on the clothing for women in that year's collection.
Gordon was long interested in Bessette-Kennedy's style prior to production.
If it wasn’t for Dorinda Medley (and those three Mexico episodes) the last Real Housewives of New York season would have been a complete snooze fest.
Before marrying Kennedy, Bessette was in a relationship with Calvin Klein model Michael Bergin, who wrote a memoir titled The Other Man: John F.
Kennedy Jr., Carolyn Bessette, and Me, which was published in 2004.
In 2005, Bessette-Kennedy's close friend Carole Radziwill, wife of John's cousin Anthony Stanislas Radziwill, published a memoir entitled What Remains: A Memoir of Fate, Friendship and Love, that includes her memories of the plane crash that took place just weeks before her own husband's death from cancer.
According to Vanity Fair, Bessette's "insecurity fueled a need to control and manipulate; her frequent use of cocaine made her paranoid".
Moreover, Bessette was jealous of and barely on speaking terms with her sister-in-law Caroline Kennedy, who reportedly criticized the bride for being late to her own wedding and wearing heels on the beach.
