Jackie Disapproved

Ah, those adorable pictures of JFK and his children playing in the White House. Who could ever forget them? Kids being kids, and a president enjoying his youngsters. My favorite? The snapshot of John Jr. poking his head under his father's desk, while JFK reviews some paperwork.

Ever wonder why Jackie wasn't included in these photos? Jackie didn't want them taken; she said she wanted to protect the children and their privacy, and she believed in limiting their exposure to the press. JFK took a lighter view: he wanted to support his family man image, and what better way to do it?

So while Jackie was away, JFK gave the go-ahead for the pictures.....

See what other troubles brewed between the Kennedys in O! Jackie. Adorable photos were one thing, but certain behaviors stirred her fury...
