Mimi Alford, the former White House intern who recently wrote a book claiming she had an affair with President John F. Kennedy, detailed the 18-month affair in an interview with Meredith Vierra on "Rock Center" Wednesday.
Alford, 69, told Vierra that she "didn't feel guilty" about having sex with a married man, and that opening up about the affair decades later has been a relief.
"When you keep a secret, and when you keep silent about something, you do it because you think it's keeping you safe, but in fact, it's deadly," she said.
