Jackie O's Comedian Granddaughter, Rose Kennedy Schlossberg, Looks Exactly Like Her

Rose Kennedy Schlossberg recently launched a web comedy series, but most people are noticing the resemblance between the 27-year-old and her late grandmother, Jackie Kennedy

Schlossberg, the daughter of U.S. Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy and Edwin Schlossberg, was raised on the Upper East Side in Manhattan with her two siblings. Schlossberg's look-alike grandmother, Jackie Kennedy Onassis, was a frequent visitor when she was growing up. 

"Jackie, who lived just a few blocks away from the Schlossbergs on the Upper East Side, saw Rose basically every day and doted on her,” Christopher Andersen, Kennedy biographer, told the New York Post in 2010. "Jackie knew it was important to sow the seeds of good behavior early on, and she tried to do that in the final years of her life. It was a mission for her." 

Schlossberg attended Harvard and recently completed her master's at New York University. While at NYU, the budding comedian told Mashable she came up with the idea for her new video series, "End Times Girls Club," which resides under Lorne Michaels' Broadway Video. 

"It came up as a response to seeing the way that New York responded to Hurricane Sandy, and how people were grossly underprepared -- specifically, girls in damsel in distress mode," Schlossberg said. "I thought it would be interesting to create this world where girls have to be survivalists without compromising their cute factor."  

Get ready to see more of Schlossberg in the six-part series and possibly a little more of her in the public eye. According to at least one person in the Kennedy inner circle, she's set to become the "future" of the family. 

"Rose was and is the leader of the pack -- her opinion counts. She is highly regarded within the ever-expanding [Kennedy] circle," Kennedy friend, Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr., said in the book, American Legacy: The Story of John & Caroline Kennedy. "In many respects, she is the face and future of the clan."
