Is Robert Kennedy fooling around on fiancée Cheryl Hines? Probably.


Robert Kennedy Jr. and Cheryl Hines announced their engagement in May. They’ve been together for about two years, and this will be his third marriage. His last marriage, to Mary Kennedy, ended when he fooled around on her and when her mental illness and self-harming really became full-blown (that was his story). Mary Kennedy killed herself in 2012. So… Cheryl Hines is engaged to a man who has a tortured romantic history, if we’re being kind. Plus, he’s a Kennedy and “tortured romantic history” kind of comes with the name. So would it really be that surprising to learn that RFK Jr. is cheating on Cheryl? Probably not.

ROBERT F. KENNEDY Jr. has been two-timing fiancée Cheryl Hines with a wealthy Connecticut socialite! As The National ENQUIRER recently revealed, the cheating scandal erupted just weeks before Kennedy, 60, was set to wed the “Curb Your Enthusiasm” actress – and, in a blockbuster exclusive, we can now identify the mistress. She is a 42-year-old mother of four who is estranged from her husband, and sources say Kennedy preyed on the shapely brunette at their gym. The ENQUIRER is withholding the woman’s name, but tellingly when contacted, she did not deny that she’s intimately involved with Kennedy.

“Bobby was well aware that she was going through a bitter divorce, and he took advantage of her at a very vulnerable time,” a source told The ENQUIRER. “Like he’s done with numerous women before, he turned on the Kennedy charm to woo her into the sack. He’s a no-good horndog,” the source added.

Insiders say the woman didn’t realize Kennedy, an attorney and environmental activist, was seriously involved with Cheryl, 48, and only recently learned that he planned to marry the actress at the Kennedy-clan compound in Hyannis, Mass., this summer.

“She’s been terribly hurt by being led on by Bobby,” said the source. “She really liked him, but now realizes he’s a cad for giving her false hope that they might have a future together. He’d even hinted that marriage was a possibility.”

Kennedy and his mistress traveled in the same social circles and worked out at the same gym in Armonk,N.Y. He was friendly with her estranged husband, an extremely well-to-do medical professional, until he lured the woman into a sexual relationship about two years ago, said the source.

“When Bobby eyeballed the woman in a hot exercise outfit at the gym, he didn’t waste a minute before putting on a full-court press to win her over to be more than just friends,” said the source. “Bobby got her to give him a lift home in her fancy convertible, and from there he convinced her to hook up with him.”

While his romance with his Hollywood honey was heating up, Kennedy also invited his mistress to attend an event with him in Seattle in April 2013, the source revealed.

“Despite being involved with Cheryl, Bobby had the woman fly back home with him on the same plane. He didn’t care about being caught,” said the source. “Now the woman has become just another notch on his belt. It’s particularly awful after the pain she’s been going through with her divorce.”

Kennedy was branded a serial cheater after the tragic death of his estranged wife Mary Richardson, who committed suicide by hanging herself in May of 2012. After the tragic headline-making incident, it became public knowledge that Kennedy had carried on numerous affairs during their marriage. Kennedy’s office did not respond to our request for a comment, while Hines’ publicist issued an abrupt “No comment.”

The source added: “If Cheryl Hines has any sense, she’ll head for the hills before she walks down the aisle with this guy!”

Yeah. It wouldn’t surprise me whatsoever. As I said, it comes with the Kennedy name. It also sounds like this affair went down last year, right? Like, it was 2 or 3 months of sex behind Cheryl’s back and then Robert dumped his mistress? Pretty much. So, what is Cheryl Hines getting out staying with him? She gets to be “married to a Kennedy”? She gets to be one of the many blondes who thought she could change a Kennedy man?

    Is he fooling around?

    Um. Where do bears …. do bears sh/t in the woods?


    The answer is YES.

  2. Anoneemouse says:

    I think the real question now is how is she going to handle this? Ignore it? Or leave his ass?

  3. RobN says:

    Man, I hope it’s true. In the gossip world, there are few things I enjoy more than the mistress getting cheated on.

  4. Santolina says:

    More than a few “red flags,” with Bobby Jr. Cheryl deserves better.

  5. L says:

    Ah the old cliche of “you lose your man just like how you got him” and “a leopard not changing their spots” mixed into one.

    Not surprised and I have zero sympathy for either of them.

  6. Kiddo says:

    I know this is harsh, but I don’t care. She knew what she was getting into.

  7. aims says:

    There would be no way in hell I would ever get involved with a Kennedy. I feel like fooling around is part of their DNA make up. I just couldn’t be one of those women who could look the other way. Life is too short for that crap.

  8. Green Eyes says:

    I think RFK jr. Cheating on Cheryl Hines is a case of Just Deserts. Any woman with an ounce of self respect would run from any involvement with a Kennedy. I’ve met a few of the Kennedys in my day and they are ALL really flirty and charming. I consider myself very fortunate to have never gotten involved with one.

  9. Lydia says:

    Well, he’s cheated on every other woman that he’s ever been with, so this is hardly surprising. He cheated on his first wife with his second, and then cheated on his second and she killed herself. Why do women even bother with Kennedy men? It’s so bizarre.

  10. PunkyMomma says:

    Duh he’s a Kennedy male. Run, Cheryl, run.

  11. Christin says:

    My sympathy ended when it was revealed she was posting about her happy times with her new man (or “good friend”) and his kids before he was divorced. No one should be faulted for Mary’s death, but I don’t think it helped matters during the last weeks to see the new woman showing off on social media.

  12. Hannah says:

    I think he gets a bad rep. And this story comes from the Enquirer.

  13. christine says:

    Cheryl Hines looks insanely amazing at 48.

  14. Chicagogurl says:

    1st = WOW, he’s much less attractive than his father

    2nd = anyone else getting really sick of how articles like this are written? He lured her…he preyed on the shapely brunette…..he took advantage of her at a very vulnerable time. At worst, he cheated on both women and strung them along, which makes him a definite jerk but not someone who preys on another person. This woman was 42 and had sex willingly with someone else.

    It seems like articles from new magazines similar to this only have 2 perspectives….they either blame the victim or make a monster out of someone who made bad choices/judgement calls. There is gray, ya know. Someone can just be a jerk without being a mastermind manipulator who lures others. Not everyone is a preditor or prey. Articles like this and the Uncle Terry one are so disgusting to me. The conjecture is all wrong – hack journalism. I realize this is probably from Enquirer or a similar source and expectations should be low, but still where is the entertainment….this fluff propels stereotypes or victimizes people who aren’t victims. It’s getting really tiring that one can expect the same level of journalism from New York mag as they can Enquirer, just sprinkle in a few big words to make up the difference.

  15. Christin says:

    Didn’t excerpts from his diary reveal several affairs? That alone should have made Cheryl think twice. I don’t think he ever denied that the entries were written by him.

  16. roxy750 says:

    Completely gross. She also better watch her back—alot of these women (mistress and wives and exes) have a tendency to have accidents or disappear or have a stroke of bad luck. STAY AWAY from the curse!

  17. Alexis says:

    He is hideous…inside and especially OUT.

    I don’t know why Cheryl is bothering with him. She’s attractive and successful, she could definitely do better.

  18. Kate says:

    God, Cheryl. Where is your BRAIN? He’s not even that attractive! RUN, GIRL! Or you’re gonna end up like Mary Jo Kopechne!

  19. Astrid says:

    All I see is too much cosmetic dental work on both of them

  20. ella says:

    He looks like a reanimated corpse in that first photo (and a demon clown in the second).

  21. MissTrial says:

    Isn’t that the initiation? Tradition?

    Anyway, she has always bugged me, something about her, her manner annoys me to no end. I liked her on Curb Your Enthusiasim but every interview…

  22. JenniferJustice says:

    Frankly, I hope he is cheating on Cheryl Hines – what comes around goes around. They both played a direct role in Mary Kennedy’s depression, mental breakdown, and eventual suicide.

    As for the new mistress, yes, she did know Bobby was engaged to Cheryl Hines. She can play coy all she wants, but if you hooked up with somebody even remotely famous, wouldn’t you research them on the web? Wouldn’t you do some background checking? Um….yah

  23. Tippy says:

    Death and despair will continue to haunt the Kennedy clan.

    This story should serve as a wake-up call to Cheryl before it’s too late.

  24. Tig says:

    I concur with the writing style of this article- what 4O odd yr old woman wouldn’t check out some guy- and then a famous one to boot??? That being said, his charm must be of the personality-side of things, bec he doesn’t look so hot now.

  25. Pepsi Presents...Coke says:

    They’re all idiots.

  26. lunchcoma says:

    Yeah, probably. It seems like none of the men in that family have been raised to respect women. I’m not quite sure what she sees in him – if you’re going to fall for a cheater, you might at least fall for a handsome one.

  27. Sandy says:

    Kennedy men either kill women, maim them, drive them to suicide or turn them into alcoholics. The Kennedy women entitle these men, and think they have to take the abuse. Latest example (actually before Bobby’s wife) was Maria Shriver. They all have one f-ed up idea about women and their role vis-a-vis men.

  28. eliza says:

    Is his last name Kennedy? Then, yes, he is fooling around.

    I couldn’t care less if he is doing it to Hines. She has always been extremely obnoxious and smug over her relationship with him AND b.s that they were not fooling around when he was still with his wife. Not to mention Hines always made a point of going to the very places Mary went with her children, taking them and acting like she was the saviour from poor, mental Mary.

    No love for Hines from me nor sympathy. You get what you give in life.

    Oh and on a superficial, ahole note, his face is one effed up mess.
