An insider tells HollywoodLife.com actress Cheryl Hines feels terribly for the Kennedy family after they loss Mary yesterday

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has long moved on romantically from his estranged wife, Mary Kennedy, and his new girlfriend, Cheryl Hines, is trying her hardest to comfort the family after Mary’s suicide.

“Cheryl is devastated,” a source close to the actress tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “She met Robert long after he filed for divorce from Mary. She was not friends with Mary, they didn’t know each other.”

Adds the source, “She met Robert in Deer Valley at one of his charity events and she has always admired his chartible causes for the environment. She has nothing but empathy for the family right now.”

Robert filed for divorce from Mary in May 2010 and only three days later she got a DUI. Since that time, she’s been on a downward spiral, her friends said.

Our hearts go out to the Kennedys, particularly Mary’s four children.

There should be a new mental illness named: the Hines Effect. People with this illness feel an uncontrollable need to let everyone in the world know that they are starting a new life with a married man , his children from his prior relationship, and his friends with his estranged wife. The illness is a cousin to kleptomania; the uncontrollable urge to steal.

Why defend someone who cared so little about her children and other family members that she took her own life. I believe she was the abuser and that was her final act of abuse. What kind of mother doesn’t have the will to carry onnomatter what? Most of us would walk thru fire for our children. This woman refused to live, the reason doesn’t matter, her selfish act does. You can’t blame the Kennedys for this. Millions of women have gone thru unwanteddivorce and continued to be a mothe, daughter etc.

Wow, you are pretty cold, hard hearted and judgemental. Mary was not like “millions of other women who have gone through an unwanted divorce”. First of all, she was Mary, a unique person, she does not have to be “like millions of other women”. Second, she was MENTALLY ILL!!! Do you get that? What part of “mental illness” do you not get?

Do you believe Mary should have just sucked it up, gotten out of bed, told Bobby and that horseface he’s humping to shove it? People with mental illness do not think straight, they have low energy, they are depleatd and they make poor choices. I’m sure Mary loved her children, maybe in her diminished capacity they thought that she was a terrible mother and that he kids would be better off without her.

Don’t be so quick to judge until you have walked a mile in shomebody’s else’s shoes. I hope YOU never suffer a mood disorder or a depression. Depression is NOT just feeling unhappy or sad…Depession is a real disease and it can and does kill people.

Dearest Mary, The public is arguing your case for you. Your decision, obviously not spur of the moment because it took planning, was probably the only action that could have outed RFK Jr.s behavior. You knew the Kennedy’s were too powerful for your living voice to ever be heard and taken seriously. God knows your truth. Rest in Peace.

Sure Cheryl is devastated. If she feels guilty she didn’t feel guilty enough to stop going out on her husband and having the affair with Robert. She might be kicking up her heels since RFK Jr. no longer has to pay alimony or child support at all. Enough with the times Mary was involved with the law. Teddy Kennedy got away with manslaughter. If RFK Jr. was in trouble with the law you can bet his family covered it up. These two people make me sick. They deserve each other, however the children are the losers in this case. They lost their mother.

My heart goes out to the children.. I have no idea how Hines can live with herself plus she is truly awful looking so unnatural compared to Mary who is a beauty..The Kennedy (men) baby boys are all the same….You would have to be hard up to even consider
going out with any one of them

My prayers go out to Mary and her children.

Kennedy’s are low life scum of the earth. Least the men who have the blood. What did we expect? Look what they came from.

Cheryl Hines was in photos at Celebrity Ski Fest 2009.
Robert Kennedy was a herion addict in the 80’s.
He couldn’t handle his wife’s issues?
She was raising the 4 children.
He and his sister spoke of Mary’s issues after her death.
His sister, Kerry had an affair with a man whose wife had an affair with Robert Jr.
What nice people!!!!

I read somewhere that before Ethel Kennedy dated RFK Sr. and married him that her sister had previously dated him too.

I don’t know if the sister was also the mother of Michael (Ethel’s nephew) who murdered Martha Moxley.

There is also a photo of Cheryl Hines and her husband at the 2009 ski fest. Just another kink in the spin.

You are correct. The lies continue.. As for her being devastated…really? Only days before MRK death, she was posting pics on twitter… with MRK kids. I don’t think the family will be able to spin their way out of this one.

So, she’s low life too….go figure…Hollywood? Kennedy’s? They seem to have a very, very, very “close” relationship….What is it with Democrats and sleezy affairs? Doesn’t seem to matter if they’re Presidents, Senators, or even Wanna Be’s….they can’t seem to be loyal….yet people vote them in? Go figure…Character. It’s everything. Your word is your oath. Not the “book” you hold under your hand. The “family” standing by your side should be your moral conscience. I’m so tired of this crud. Kennedy’s are scum. Have been for years. The Dad, Grandfather was scum. I’d commit my daughter if they ever even came close to a Kennedy…Anyone remember “Teddy”? His poor little girlfriend (pregnant) who he happened to drown? Geez, I turned off the tv the day they had his funeral. Why pray for someone to go to Hell?
