Long before JFK and Bill Clinton, America’s presidents had a long tradition of having a little something on the side. It seems that a secret lover is an American pastime right up there with apple pie.
John F. Kennedy And Marilyn Monroe
Today, Marilyn Monroe is still one of the most recognized actresses to ever hit the silver screen. Despite starring in dozens of films, her most notorious role was played in Palm Springs when she reportedly became JFK’s mistress. The two spent time together in Bing Crosby’s California vacation home. After their meeting, Monroe apparently called the First Lady and told her about the affair. Jackie Kennedy was not surprised by the event and told Monroe to marry Jack then she could deal with the hassles of the White House.
