JEANNE CARMEN is mentioned in this new article on MARILYN MONROE at EXPRESS news site in the U.K.
Though she had many friends in Hollywood, details of her final movements, including the last phone calls she made, have remained difficult to follow. But unearthed accounts show among the last may have been to the former US President John F Kennedy’s family.
Vanity Fair reported earlier this year that on the morning of her death on August 4, Monroe called actress Jeanne Carmen, who was a friend of the star, and explained how she “sounded distressed”.
Carmen continued: “She said some woman had been calling all night, harassing her and calling her names. The voice sounded familiar, but she couldn’t put a name to it. The anonymous caller had said words to the effect ‘Leave Bobby [Kennedy] alone, you tramp. Leave Bobby alone.'”
The friend also noted how Monroe had asked for “sleeping pills and wine” but Carmen refused to entertain her request. Monroe endured a difficult relationship with the Kennedy family, a family unit acclaimed in US political history.
