Kim Kardashian owes the American people and apology. Jacqueline Kennedy is an icon and a role model. This is a new low for Kim"; "You know the end is near when Interview turns Kim Kardashian into Jackie Kennedy."

Jackie Kennedy, who was married to US President John F Kennedy, still occupies a special place in the American consciousness. Jackie O, as she is also called, was First Lady from 1961 to 1963, when JFK was assassinated. She later married Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis. Jackie Kennedy died in 1994.
Kim Kardashian presides over an empire that includes beauty products, a clothing line and a hugely lucrative reality TV series based on her family.
