America's Prince: The John F. Kennedy Jr. Story

Shut up shut up shut UP, Brunette. We don't need you reminding us that Mrs. Bessette lost two daughters in the plane crash.

We meet Lauren now, as she joins Carolyn for lunch. She works (or worked) in Hong Kong, which accounts for the Chinese she's speaking into her cell phone while doing this finger-pointing gesture at her sister. She jabbers away for a minute or so, while Carolyn looks awfully distressed. Finally Lauren ends the call and says "tell me" all business-like to Carolyn, like, oh so concerned about her sister, but not concerned enough to get off the damn cell phone already. Carolyn's quit her job, but she can't offer a reason why. "What does John say?" says Lauren, and Carolyn says he says she should do whatever makes her happy. But they haven't been talking much since he's working late and the publisher's thinking of pulling the plug. Lauren can't give a rat's ass about that; she just wants to know what will make Carolyn happy. Carolyn doesn't know, since even if she "discovered the cure for the common cold," she'd still just be John-John's wife "who lucked out and was handed the cure for the common cold" and first of all it sounded really awkward to repeat "cure for the common cold," and second of all, why is she so bitter? I mean, has she actually done anything she's gone unrecognized for? Not according to this movie. And what is her obsession with the common cold? Carolyn says she doesn't see how the marriage can work out. "Do you want it to?" asks Lauren. Carolyn doesn't know. "Do you love him?" asks Lauren. Carolyn says that of course she does. Lauren shrugs. "But is that enough?" asks Carolyn. Stay tuned!

News clips of Joseph Kennedy taking heat for getting his twelve-year marriage annulled so he could marry within the church, as well as Michael Kennedy's affair with his fourteen-year-old babysitter. Fourteen? Good LORD. George Editor is warning John against printing an editorial in which he calls his relatives "poster boys for bad behaviour" since it'll just look like he's taking cheap shots at his own family, but John's got this smug air of moral superiority about him right now, and he goes ahead with it. He gets crucified for it, but in her interview, George Editor says it was their biggest-selling issue, and she sounds like she thinks that makes it okay. Watching coverage of the mini-scandal, John puts on his Sad Face as Joseph insinuates that John wrote the editorial to boost sales. Oh god, not Kennedy Friend again. I really hate this guy, pompously going on about how John had to have known Jackie wouldn't approve.
