And you'll move into the White House and you'll assume the responsibilities of first lady, and I'll move out and you'll have all the problems." The first lady reportedly confided in Dr Frank Finnerty, one of her personal physicians, about her inadequate sex life, telling him: "[Kennedy] just goes too fast and falls asleep." After "some understandable hesitation", Dr Finnerty offered up some sex advice which improved the first couple's relations but did not stop Kennedy's extramarital activities, according to the book.
It also describes the alarm of some of Kennedy's intimates when they learned that both he and his wife were being treated by Max Jacobson, a German physician known as "Dr Feelgood" for his habit of regular injections.
" The book reports one unconfirmed episode where Monroe called the White House and spoke to Mrs Kennedy, telling her of the affair with her husband.
Mrs Kennedy reportedly replied: "Marilyn, you'll marry Jack, that's great.
Her first marriage, at the age of 16, had been to a neighbour's son, Jim Dougherty, whom she called, bizarrely, Daddy.
Dinner was at eight, but at 9pm Marilyn was still sitting in front of her dressing-table mirror, putting the finishing touches to her make-up.She knew from what she'd heard and read that Marilyn was a troubled woman.It wasn't so much that she was angry about it, more that she was just disgusted.' Sadly, Jackie was the only person close to the President who had realised - or voiced concern about - Marilyn's vulnerability.Notoriously late for everything, she was happy to keep the President of the United States waiting.She eventually arrived at JFK's hotel, more than an hour late, with Lawford's business partner Milt Ebbins.She was noticed in 1949 by Johnny Hyde, a powerful agent with the William Morris agency.
