Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Not Invited To Mary Kennedy NYC Memorial

Mary Kennedy memorial service

Mary’s family will be hosting a memorial service in NYC on May 21 at The Standard Hotel but her estranged husband didn’t get an invite — so instead he took his four kids to Florida.

If Robert F. Kennedy Jr can’t go to his wife’s memorial service then neither can his children. The New York Post is reporting that Mary Richardson Kennedy‘s family snubbed Robert by not asking him to attend her private memorial that will be held at the Standard Hotel.

Mary’s family got into a bitter battle with RFK Jr., right before the funeral over who would have the rights to her body, and Robert won. The New York Post reports that only one of Mary’s siblings attended the funeral and that his eulogy was totally self-serving.

The family is holding the private service at the hotel because she was close with the owner Andre Balazs. But since Robert wasn’t invited to attend, he took his kids to Florida to stay with their grandmother.

“He was a very terrible husband,” a friend says. “But he’s a very good father.”

Robert filed for divorce from Mary in 2010 and was fighting to get custody of their four children. She was buried near the family compound against the wishes of her family.

Who ever said the Kennedy men were princes?

Cheryl Hines hopefully does not think she is special,does she. She is just a filler RFKJr. had while he was helping kill his wife slowly (The Ted Kennedy Syndrome)

Chery Hines and the ugliness of Kennedy junior deserve each other.

Anybody that thinks marrying a Kennedy is a plus,ask Andy Cuomo or Arnold.

Yes, I have seen on Twitter the pictures of Cheryl and the children of Mary and RFK jr., and tweets between her and RFK Jr’s oldest daughter Kick. Very cozy. Interesting that Cheryl Hines quickly removed all this but Kick’s twitter page still shows the tweets between the 2 of them, in addition to a couple of newly added pix of Mary. I got the impression from the Cheryl’s pix and her and Kick’s pix and tweets that RFK, Jr. and his kids didn’t think twice about Mary as they were engaged in their cozy, bubbly relationship–note to RFK, Jr.: Do not mess with your kids’ emotions as you move onto different affairs by getting them close to your lovers, who, no doubt, will be cheated on and ditched sooner or later.

Did anyone check out the Twitter feed of @realcherylhines (which has now vanished)? She and @KerryKennnedyRFK sending cozy tweets to one another, posting pictures of evenings out together, etc. Lovely way for poor Mary’s “best friend” to behave.
