Jackie O: Public, Private, Secret with J. Randy TaraborrelliAug 21, 2023
We all know public details of her time as First Lady in the White House. We can recall the historic imagery of her wearing a pink Chanel suit with the matching pink hat on the day President Kennedy was assassinated. But with only a few years spent in the White House, what fabric makes the full life of beloved First Lady, Jackie Kennedy Onassis? Sharon connects with journalist and celebrity biographer, J. Randy Taraborrelli, to chat about his new book “Jackie: Public, Private, Secret.” This conversation brings to light the story of a woman’s total lived experience, in a way that is surprising, complex, and distinctive, painting a portrait of the lesser known parts of the iconic life of Jackie O.
