Susan Page, author of The Matriarch: Barbara Bush and the Making of an American Dynasty, revealed in her explosive new book that Babara’s sorrows could have had to do with potential homewrecker Jennifer Fitzgerald who was by her husband’s side for 12 years as his aid, although some claimed her to be his mistress!
