Big Edie and Little Edie Bouvier Beale, AKA the aunt and first cousin of Jackie Kennedy, AKA the ‘star’s’ of the documentary Grey Garden’s. Imagine two headstrong women, a mother and daughter living in a ramshackle, dilapidated twenty six room mansion overrun with dozens of cat’s, rat’s and bandicoot’s, the kitchen waist deep in trash, shunned by high society of which they were once a queen and princess, two women who right to the end literally danced to the beat of their own drum. The Edies .. a true inspiration to me.
