“She ate it straight from the dish”: the revelations of a relative of Jackie Kennedy on her violent bouts of bulimia


Thursday, May 19, 2022 marked the 28th anniversary of the disappearance of Jackie Kennedy. And the one who was a fashion icon in the 1960s hid a real obsession for her body.

Thanks to her elegance, her culture, her beauty and her dress style, Jackie Kennedy has become a true fashion icon in the 1960s. Indeed, the wife of the 35th President of the United States, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, cultivated his appearance and in particular its silhouette in order to always be presentable.

However, behind her perfect appearance, the First Lady of the United States hid a true obsession for his body and did not hesitate to inflict a drastic diet. In the book “Jackie’s Girl: my life with the Kennedy Family“, published in May 2017, Kathy McKeon had made several revelations about the private life of Jackie Kennedy. Indeed, the one who assisted him for 13 years had revealed that she controlled his diet and only ate 600 calories a day.

Kathy McKeon: “We’ve bumped into each other at night, in the pantry.”

If Jackie Kennedy had such a strict diet, it was because she was prone to severe binge eating. Kathy McKeon had also declared that she had found him several times in white house cupboards. “If she went into the kitchen and saw a brownie or cookies, she grabbed it and ate it right off the plate.” she had written.

During her crises, the mother of Caroline and John-John Kennedy had even developed schemes so as not to be spotted. His former governess had testified: “We happened to bump into each other at night in the pantry. She didn’t turn on the light, because she didn’t want to be seen in there“. She then continued: “I caught her eating ice cream straight from the jar with a big spoon. Not a small, no, a huge one“. A moment that had particularly marked Kathy McKeon who had explained that usually, Jackie Kennedy did not have much appetite.
