Feminist icon GLORIA STEINEM has published the book MARILYN.
STEINEM states that there were "only two women" MARILYN was close to at the end of her life and that MARILYN saw these two women regularly: PATRICIA NEWCOMB, her publicist and "JEANNE CARMEN, an actress neighbor to whom MARILYN confessed her troubles with insomnia, with work, with men."
STEINEM also writes of MARILYN's affair with JOHN F KENNEDY and ROBERT KENNEDY and STEINEM recounts the time CARMEN opened the door at MARILYN's Doheny Drive apartment "in the summer or fall of 1961" and found a "surprised ROBERT KENNEDY" staring back at her.
STEINEM also writes of the trip MARILYN, CARMEN and BOBBY KENNEDY took to a "nearby nudist beach" on a dare.
