Former White House Intern Mimi Alford Reveals Affiar With JFK


Looks like Monica Lewinsky wasn’t the first White House intern to have liaisons with the Commander in Chief.

Did you happen to catch the interview on Wednesday night’s ‘Rock Center with Brian Williams?’  It certainly was a riveting interview.  I talked about the interview on “Andy In The Morning” last Thursday, that former White House intern Mimi Alford revealed to Meredith Vieira details about her alleged affair with President John F. Kennedy in 1962.

Alford, worked in the White House press room.   She was only 19 when President Kennedy took an interest in her, and offered to give her a tour of the rooms.  The rest, they say, is history.

Now 68, Alford’s upcoming memoir shares explicit details about the affair.

Is she revealing this now to sell books?  Yes, and no.  Sure, it will sell books, but she kept it a secret for over 40 years.  Alford’s reported affair with Kennedy was first publicly outed in 2003 when historian Robert Dallek wrote 37 words about an unnamed intern who had an affair with Kennedy in the biography ‘An Unfinished Life.’  Mimi Alford says that she finally decided to speak about it in order to tell her ‘real’ story.
