A famous author, who penned biographies for Bobby Kennedy and Edie Sedgwick, leaped to her death from a Manhattan high rise on Sunday.

How often do Octagenarians jump out of buildings? Totally serious question.
The building she jumped from was the former home of Gloria Vanderbilt and the location where her son Carter Vanderbilt Cooper also leaped to his death
47% of old people jump to their deaths every year.
Isn’t Anderson Poofter a relative of Gloria Vanderbilt?
No, just curious about seniors and jumping deaths. I know they can/do commit suicide but by jumping just seemed to be odd. that’s all.
If she was giving out Hollyweird secrets, the dive off the building might not have been her idea.
She was Katrina Vanden Heuvel’s mother.
And one hundred percent of those jumpers die after passing by a perfectly safe lower floor.
Many of these facts would surprise people.
Anderson Cooper is her son.
According to Wikipedia, her father was Dr. Jules Stein, founder of the eye institute at UCLA that bears his name, and her daughter is the editor of The Nation.
LoL!!!! 47% of old people jumping to their deaths every year means there would be bodies flying everywhere. Haven’t seen that film at 11!
8 out of 10 doctors recommend not listening to 2 out of 10 doctors.
Is there anyone left with any power, and anything to lose, that still needs to protect the Kennedy reputation?
Hell, I watched a documentary on PBS ( of all channels) that discussed openly JFK’s many affairs in the White House (they practically accused him of being a rapist), Jackie’s knowledge of them, the potential murder of Marilyn Monroe, JFK’s drug addiction, and the cheating in several elections, the biggest of which was Illinois in 1960.
Like the Soviet Union, or China, you can only start to talk openly about the crimes of leaders after many years have passed.
So Carter Vanderbilt Cooper was Anderson Coopers brother? I haven’t ever heard him talk about a brother who committed suicide, although I don’t pay much attention to him.
I’ve seen many derogatory statements about JFK and his brother. I have never been able to figure out why that family is held in such high regard, most of them have been nothing but screw ups.
Worked with George Plimpton at Paris Review and on books. Interviewed (and reportedly had an affair with William Faulkner). Ex-wife of Bill vanden Heuvel who worked for Bobby Kennedy.
Her father did business with Reagan. Her daughter is to the left of the left.
Thank goodness Anderson Cooper will keep the family name alive! Oh, wait...
She was 83 years old, and couldn’t get her hands on some pills to do it peacefully? I’m not buying it.
