Christina Haag first met John F. Kennedy Jr, when she was a teenager growing up in the cloistered world of New York's tony Upper East Side. At first friends, it was not until a decade later, after they had both graduated from Brown University and were living in New York City that they connected romantically. The pair was cast in an off-Broadway play as a young couple in love. Art imitated life and the two embarked on a tumultuous five-year relationship that was played out in society columns and tabloids. Haag, a TV actress, has penned a deeply personal and passionate memoir about their time shared, called 'Come to the Edge: A Memoir,' and spoke with PopEater about what drew her to the "gorgeous ... fun ... curious" and tragic Kennedy, whose life was snuffed out in a plane crash in 1999. She also opens up about the iconic Jackie O and about the time she and John almost died kayaking.
