S5E8: That’s Life | Porfirio Rubirosa & Halle Berry and David Justice



Welcome back! Have you ever wondered how the men of the Rat Pack developed their sense of style? In our eighth episode of Ocean’s Eleven: 12 Degrees of Frank Sinatra, Alicia shares the strange but true life story of international man of mystery, James Bond inspiration, and husband to two American heiresses (among a few other women) Porfirio Rubirosa, the most famous person you’ve probably never heard of.

Then, Stacie has an Atlanta hometown with the sordid tale of Atlanta Brave David Justice and his short-lived marriage to Academy Award winner Halle Berry back in the go-go 1990s.
