Best of Boston

1995 Best Better Half

Teresa Heinz, aka Mrs. John Kerry

Best: Lauren Rauschenbach, aka Mrs. Henri Rauschenbach. Indicted on charges of shilling for jailed financier Carmen Elio, the ape Cod senator gallantly laid the blame for his predicament on his wife’s expensive tastes. “My wife was, you know, prodding me a bit,” Rauschenbach said. “My wife comes from a family with dollars. You know, Lauren’s the only one of the daughters that’s married to a guy who’s making 30 beans a year.” Even Better: Teresa Heinz, aka Mrs. John Kerry. See Best Quote.
