Earlier this week, there was a rumor going around that Monica Lewisky was shopping a tell-all memoir around to some of the major publishing houses. Before I go any further, if you for some reason don’t know who this woman is, let me remind you. She was the White House intern who had an affair with President Bill Clinton when she was 22-years-old when he was in office. It. Was. Scandalous.
Now, 15 years later, Lewinsky has allegedly secured a book deal worth $12 million in which she plans to reveal the details of their kinky rendezvous and how Clinton would refer to his wife Hillary while around her. He would apparently refer to her as a “cold fish” and “laughed” about their “non-existent sex life.” A source tells the New York Post, “In them, she opened her heart about love for Bill and how much happier she could make him. Some of what she wrote was so raw that she never sent them.” Lewinsky is turning 40-years-old next year
Lewinsky was the biggest joke for so long because of this scandal (Molly Shannon used to impersonate her in SNL sketches). Since it all went down, she obtained her master’s degree, worked briefly as a news correspondent and launched a failed handbag line but no one really wants to hire her because of her reputation. Now she’s ready to make some money a different way. Check out an interview she did with Larry King several years ago where she discussed the scandal.
