Ronald Reagan's White House Ghost Story
Huffington Post - over 3 years
It wouldn't be Halloween if I didn't re-post my favorite White House ghost story. Ever since the White House was first occupied in 1800, there have been rumors of hauntings, but I got this story direct from the President. No, not President Obama. I first heard about the White House ghosts directly from the lips of Ronald Reagan. It was March 18, 1986, and my husband Nick and I had been invited to a state dinner in honor of Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney. The State Dining room was filled with gold candlesticks, gold vermeil flatware and vermeil bowls filled with red and white tulips. I had the great privilege of being seated at the President's table along with Chicago Bears' running back Walter Payton; the Canadian Prime Minister's wife Mila Mulroney; the president of the Mobil Corporation; Donna Marella Agnelli, wife of the chairman of Fiat; Burl Osborne, the editor of the Dallas Morning News, and Pat Buckley, wife of William Buckley. The President, a brilliant storyteller ...

Twelve years ago the visionary architect and designer Peter Marino, principal of the New York-based global design firm Peter Marino Architect, traded in his cashmere vest, tie and slacks for something that looked and felt more true to his old biker self. He never went back and now he's famous in fashion circles for his signature tough looks, with his black leather pants, vest and cap, tattoos and skull rings. But he's world-renowned in architecture for his soft, light filled, and luxurious interiors. Photo credit: Katja Rahlwes Early on, Marino apprenticed with such masters such as I. M. Pei and George Nelson. He designed the New York apartments of a number of celebrities and creatives, including Andy Warhol ("I got a very big push thanks to Andy at the start of my career," he told Architectural Digest), Yves Saint Laurent, and Gianni and Marella Agnelli. He's designed several private residences from the snowcapped mountains of Aspen to the sunny shores of Palm B ...

Agnelli collection includes Picasso, Renoir, Canaletto, Matisse and Canova materpieces. The reserved, patrician tastemaker and socialite is also known for her inclusion in Truman Capote's famous circle of 'swans'— wealthy, stylish, and well-married women friends whose company he adored because they 'had created themselves, as he had done,' and 'had stories to tell' (Gerald Clarke, Capote, pp. 274–75). According to Capote, Agnelli was 'the European swan numero uno,' the youngest in a group that included Babe Paley, Gloria Guinness, C. Z. Guest, Slim Keith, and Pamela Harriman, among others. In her autobiography, Washington Post publisher and Capote friend Katharine Graham recounts that the author once told her that if Paley and Agnelli were 'both in Tiffany's window, Marella would be more expensive' (Personal History, p. 393).
