In an above post, someone talked about the money and success in that family as though they were bedazzled by such fame and power, etc --- but there has been no money or success in that family for years: just substantial incidents of drug and alcohol dependence, chronic infidelity, fast driving and wrecklessness in almost every aspect of life. Robert Kennedy Jr, whose career as an attorney was likely ruined by the heroin case against him when he was a young man, has his own demons. It isn't the first marriage of his to fail. And he has always craved celebrity. It is sad that Mary Richardson met him as she was obviously deeply affected by the deeply pernicious maelstrom surrounding the current adult generation of Kennedy's who may in fact all live by non-traditional norms that would be depressing to most outsiders were they to be thrust into such a strange, promiscuous environment.

How can anyone think Robert Jr. doesn't have some culability in this tragedy?
Have you considered his womanizing caused her to dull her pain with booze and drugs?

The (2) recent posts here reflect the truth(s) behind a clan we all continue to "admire",when in fact,the (2) who should be admired both were assassinated long ago,unfortunately!....It was Joe(not Robert Jr)who was driving a Jeep in 1973,drunk,which rolled over breaking the back of his brother David(who died of an O.D. in 1984)--and did in fact paralyze his girlfriend for life!(the Kennedy's graciously have paid her medical expenses though)....Ole' smiley Joe got a hand-slap,and no injury of mention...Robert,Jr. however was arrested 10 years later in 1983,in South Dakota,trying to board a plane with heroin in his bag--but being a "first time offender",his record was sealed/shredded after he met the judge's requirements!.....Marrying into this clan is a death-sentence as being born into it so it seems...que sera sera

So sad that she was so low that she committed suicide with 3 children 18 and younger. Maybe she thought they would be better off without her (typical of parental suicide). Whatever - I feel so sorry for their children. This will damage them for life.

Ok,so she loved her kids(but killed herself on the property they all lived),and now leave them to the sole custody of their father!?(who correct me if I'm wrong,was DWI,rolled over a dune buggy on Cape Cod,circa 1972,in which an "unknown,non-famous kid" got paralyzed out of)--yet smiley RFK,jr. got away with it!?....So she is 6 months pregnant,and he is still married(when she married him),but now ends her life,and leaves her loved ones behind???....I do feel for her(as she ain't kin by blood),but alimony couldn't keep you afloat,and now he won!...WoW!...Them Damn Yankees & Them Damn Kennedy's!

Another Dead Kennedy!? (What happened to the rock-band with the same name!?)...It is too bad,but this stuff happens all the time,but the Kennedy's get ALL the attention based on their name!...Price to be paid for money & success,and remember all their wealth came from Big Papi Joe Sr bootlegging during prohibition!...illegal activities,yet we idolize and worship this clan!...why?

My deepest condolences to the families: hers and his. And to their beautiful children: both of your parents have contributed to much good in this world, and your Mother knew she was loved. This is the result of severe, clinical depression, or a mood disorder such as Bipolar, which fuels the desire for numbing, like the use of alcohol. Instead of framing this as your mother taking her own life, it's more accurate to say that the Disease of Depression caused your Mother's death. This is no one's "fault". To Robert Kennedy, Jr., I wish you Peace.

It is a sad tragedy that she had tooken her own life. But don't go blaming Robert Kennedy or his girlfriend. Mary was going through a lot and it doesn't help that she chose to drink and do drugs to help cope . If anything I feel for her children. A family member of mine committed sucide . Because he was in a unstable place in life. But to blame her husband and his girlfriend is wrong. He had chose to move on and be happy. And Mary knew that. And you have to give the guy credit at least he was still trying to help her financially and be there for her as a friend. If anything Mary needed to be around her family and TRUE friends that actually care about her well being . Then maybe she would be alive .
