S20E03: Hugh D. Auchincloss (Done & Dunne Crossover)

Trashy Divorces

Oct 18 2023 • 51 mins

Some stories have so much trash it's hard to know where to begin, but for scion of the Standard Oil fortune Hugh D. Auchincloss, it's hard to know even where to stop. Auchincloss, about as blue blood as you can get, was married three times, and through that particular journey, ended up being step-father to the future Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Lee Radziwell, from his third marriage, as well as the writer Gore Vidal, via his second marriage. It's this second marriage, to the former Nina Gore, that opened him to the later ponderings of step-son Gore Vidal, and his particularly poisonous pen. Get ready for a bit of a Forrest Gump journey through mid-20th century America, but in this case, a rich Forrest Gump with serious erectile dysfunction.
