For decades, the private lives of first families inside the White House have remained mostly “off the record.” Though stories of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s fights, or Nancy Reagan’s tirades have slipped out, the people closest to first families –the domestic staff– have remained loyally tight-lipped. But for the first time, a former White House reporter is shedding light on what the residential staff has witnessed for more than 50 years. We explore the stories from inside “The Residence,” and find out what the human side of life is really like at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
