124. The Heiress Tour | Three Astor Ladies: Ava, Madeline, and Brooke

This week in our Heiress Tour, we are taking one out of the Patreon Vault. In this NDY, we explore the important women in the life of William Vincent Astor. First up is the story of his mother, Lady Ava Ribbesdale, who gets the Lady title in her second marriage. Next up, is Madeline Talmadge Force, teenage bride and new step-mother to Vinnie. Last, we connect in Brooke Astor, Vinnie’s third wife, helpfully arranged by Minnie Cushing, his second wife. This one is loaded with spiderwebs and some sleuthing from Dominick Dunne too!
