    This story is so terribly sad on many levels. Why am I not surprised about RFK, Jr. and his tawdry behavior? Seems to be a family pattern. Mary was left to suffer on her own... shame on all the Kennedy Clan and her so-called "best friends." Yes, depression is an illness but completely treatable. Perhaps if her husband had supported her recovery rather than acting like he was "an innocent,"
    I wouldn't be writing this comment. Robert, try to set an honorable example for your own children and tell Cheryl to purchase her burgers and shakes back in California. Time to "MAN UP!!!"


    How convenient for Robert. Didn't have to settle with her in divorce court. Got custody of his kids. Hmmmmm...wonder if the Hollywood Flooz he's currently doing will be willing to be a Mother to four kids. Too much baggage for the blond bimbo with a few too many teeth? Well, we'll see, huh?


    Agree, no one is worth killing yourself over. If that person is a heartless jerk they aren't going to care anyways. Just like teen bullies--I think they feel proud when they drive other kids to suicide.

    Mean people aren't worth it. Succeed, be better than them and then you'll REALLY piss them off.


    I am sure she felt guilty for breaking up his first marriage, then felt like crap when he turned around and cheated on her. Sounds to me like the root of her problems was HIM. No man is worth killing yourself over, ladies. She was a beautiful lady. There are too many other men out there to give up on life. Her kids need her.


    typical as$h0le blaming it on depression. Im sure that was his excuse for sleeping around on his wives.


    But he stops short of including the philandering ways in which he caused some of the agony in her life. Right.
