From the moment RoseMarie Terenzio unleashed her Italian
temper on the entitled nuisance commandeering her office in
a downtown New York PR firm, an unlikely friendship bloomed
between the blue-collar girl from the Bronx and John F.
Many books have sought to capture John F. Kennedy Jr.’s
life. None has been as intimate or as honest as Fairy Tale
Interrupted. Recalling the adventure of working as his
executive assistant for five years, RoseMarie portrays the
man behind the icon—patient, protective, surprisingly goofy,
occasionally thoughtless and self-involved, yet capable of
extraordinary generosity and kindness. She reveals how he
dealt with dating, politics, and the paparazzi, and
describes life behind the scenes at George magazine.
Captured here are her memories of Carolyn Bessette, how she
orchestrated the ultra-secretive planning of John and
Carolyn’s wedding on Cumberland Island—and the heartbreak of
their deaths on July 16, 1999, after which RoseMarie’s whole
world came crashing down around her.
