Yes, I typically feel sorry for people who are weak or fragile in some way. She starved herself for years. She's probably got hellacious osteoporosis and is likely in constant pain. She never had the riches she wanted and the man she worshipped is dead. She is too fragile to really go anywhere. Her kids made up with her, but she probably still doesn't think much of them.

I loathed Nancy Reagan when her husband was president, but I do feel sorry for her now.

I don't feel sorry for Nancy. She's actually luckier than she deserves to be, in that her children have reconciled with her and she has good relationships with them now - considering what a terrible mother she was, that's more than she deserves!
|by Patty R.||reply 23||07/06/2013|
Now that she's 92, I no longer think of Nancy Resgan as a cunt.

|by Patty R.||reply 27||07/06/2013|
Oh, the other reason Nancy is luckier than she deserves to be - Republicans have basically won the messaging war on her husband's legacy to the point where even Democrats (with varying degrees of grudging-ness) play along with the idea that Reagan was a great president, or at least a very important one (witness Obama's comment in '08 that Clinton wasn't a "transformational" president like Reagan, which I thought was petty and inappropriate of him). Considering the fact that Nancy main obsession for sixty years has been Ronald Reagan's reputation, it is a big win for her that she gets to spend her old age with her husband being seen as a revered icon instead of being remembered as the total fuck-up he actually was!

She seems to have curtailed most appearances, but if anything I did feel bad about how the Republicans would still trot her out up until a few years ago. She always looks very confused and way too old to be in the spotlight.
|by Patty R.||reply 40||07/07/2013|
I wonder if she feels uncomfortable about how far to the right the GOP has moved. Notice she seems to favor the GOP leaders who are moderate and who never win. Nowadays Reagan's policies would be pretty to the left of the GOP.

Why in the world would you feel sorry for her?
She's had a very long life, and has ALWAYS been wealthy and privileged (her stepfather was a wealthy doctor and sent her to Smith), and she has been powerful for most of t to boot. She has two living children who visit her all the time.
I cannot imagine a human being LESS in need of pity than she is.

Ron Reagan jr. is still very liberal (and proud to admit it). He spoke out against Bush and the Iraq War and voted for Kerry and Obama.

I think Nancy's major style misfire was the inaugural balls in '81. I think she was too old for an off-the-shoulder gown, and the cut of it, with no waist, looked sort of dowdy on her anyway. Plus I don't think the pulled-back hair is flattering to her; her normal puffy helmet-head hairdo better balanced her tininess and gauntness (which maybe she realized too, since I don't think I've ever seen a picture of her with pulled-back hair after this).

Hunter S Thompson had the best quote on Nancy “I had a soft spot in my heart for Ronald Reagan, if only because he was a sportswriter in his youth, and also because his wife gave the best head in Hollywood.”

Recently read a Rock Hudson bio, apparently Nancy wanted to visit Rock in hospital when he was very ill, dying in fact. Ronnie said no way. Risk of contagion etc. So she wished him well over the phone.

r67 - When Nancy was First Lady of California, a magazine writer referred to her "piano legs" in a profile (and the writer didn't mean a delicate spinet). Kitty Kelley said Nancy was so devastated she kept her legs covered as much as possible after that, which accounts for those bizarrely unflattering ball gowns.
(Being Kitty Kelley, she had to include a rare shot of Nancy in a bathing suit... and, yes, they were an unfortunately thick pair of ugly gams.)

Nancy style. Cover those legs, girl!

Interesting, I would never have read "piano legs" as meaning thick - I would have read it as meaning scrawny, skinny legs, I guess because piano legs are small compared to the large thing they're holding up.

Isn't that a rather short skirt for a woman of NR's age to be wearing to a funeral? One suspects that Nancy knew full well that the short skirt gave her mourning-wear a casual look.

Vile bitch. She always came across as stupid to me. And another reason to hate her is that she is friends with Betsy Bloomingdale. I wonder if Nancy is consulting her astrologers and mediums and tries to keep in touch with Ronnie.

Is Betsey Bloomingdale still alive? She would have to be 110 by now.

Bloomingdale is still alive. My guess is she is about Nancy's age or a bit younger.
Nothing to feel sorry about re Nancy Reagan. She has had quite a life. Not high on my list of favorite First Ladies although the stories about her are awfully amusing. Just open any page randomly in Kitty Kelly's book. If only part of it is true, she is still quite a piece of work. But then the spouses of many politicians who go far are. Eleanor Roosevelt was an extraordinary woman, but not a very good mother. Not easy living that life. That said I sure admire ER more than NR.
