Nearly 40, never married and living with her mother: The sad life of Monica Lewinsky
The Daily Mail (U.K.) ^ | October 10, 2012 | Sara Nathan

Monica Lewinsky - Single, living with her mother and still struggling with her weight - but 'set to make $12m with a tell-all book about her affair with Clinton'

Stepping into the pouring rain, her thick hair swept up underneath a cap and rather bizarrely wearing sunglasses despite the gloomy New York weather, the woman went about her business without attracting a single gaze from passers-by.

The first picture of Monica Lewinsky, 39, in public for the first time in a year, paints a very different portrait from the young intern who achieved global notoriety after her sordid Oval Office affair with President Bill Clinton.

But her low-key life may not last much longer amid reports she is planning to pen an intimate, tell-all book about her affair with President Clinton that will plunge her right back into the spotlight.

She's been offered $12m to write the book, according to reports and it is said to include her intimate love letters to the ex-president and how he desired threesomes.

Is it revenge on her former flame? She certainly must have been aggrieved to watch as he managed to keep his family and career together in the fallout that followed the affair. But for Monica, she has never been able to emerge from its shadow and be known for anything other than that girl who wore that dress and had that affair.

There is no husband, as she dreamed of, no boyfriend, and no children, despite saying that she was 'romantic at heart' and that getting married and having kids was 'the most important thing to me.'

Monica cuts a much different figure now than at age 22

She needs to understand her place in society...

...and get a house full of about 100 cats.

LOL.

Way back in 1998, I wrote a book called Citizen Clinton. It was a series of various parodies of movies and television shows, with the Clinton characters replacing the movie characters.

An autographed copy is one of my prized possessions. Thanks, dead! The Mad Mad Mad World still cracks me up.

“She committed fornication. She’s ain’t a saint.”

Neither was the woman caught in the act of adultery, but her accusers all walked away when confronted with God’s love for her.

We should be mindful of casting stones. I, for one, feel sorry for her.

Yeah! A reader! As always, Cyber, I appreciate it!

I haven't plugged my old book in a decade or so, but this article really reminded me of when I was imagining her future to write about it.

I didn't get it exactly right, but I think I correctly predicted that her life would always be sad and her mind would never grasp how much Bill Clinton completely screwed up her life.

There's still another decade for her to get a bartending job in an Atlantic City go-go bar and increase my nostradamaty.

And here’s the future of the story: “And she died in her old age, never to give a BJ (aka, a lewinsky) again.”

Really, I don’t like seeing anyone young and stupid ruined like this in our society in service to leftists. We should be able to forgive people and redeem them after the media tears them apart in a political frenzy. It’s sad to me.

Getting entrapped, slimed and ruined by Bill and Hill and their nasty whoremeida when you are so young...shouldn’t happen here.

I, for one, feel sorry for her.

I do too. The fact that her father showed no anger at Clinton tells me she had a rather unsupportive childhood. Yes, she made the adult decisions to be a presidential groupie and got a lot of perks for her sexual fun and games but I've met a lot of women at 21 who thought this was just a "fun" phase of life with few consequences and believed nothing wrong would ever happen to her.

Hard to pay for those decisions with a lifetime of loneliness and lack of a mate.

No, she's not innocent but I think she was in way over head and was too young and dumb to realize it would never turn out the way she hoped.

Monica was a victim. A young girl who fell in love... You think that you should be defined by the worst thing you’ve ever done in your life? There are times I truly wonder about people who call themselves Christian. how long must she pay for what happened... or is forgiveness and mercy not in the Bible you read from?

I feel very sorry for her. She was young and it must have been irresistibly exciting to have that kind of access to a President of the United States. Now she is a laughing stock. (Look at the replies in this post! And WE are good people!) She has very little chance of ever finding a man to share her life with. And can you even imagine the life of any child she may have in the future? The Clinton's may not have killed her, but they certainly made her wish she was dead.

And....she was USED by the (sleazy) President of the US...who knew better. And, I’m sure his sleazy wife was part of it, too. As some have said, would hope forgiveness would come for Monica, BUT a person has to ASK for forgiveness, also.

As far as Monica -- she was what, 22 years old, and having illicit sex *in the Oval Office* (not in his private residence or anything) with *the most powerful man on Earth*...who just happened to be married already.

When does the term "wishful thinking" become "Turbo Hamster"TM (*) anyway?



(*) For those unfamiliar with the term, "Hamster" is short for "Rationalization Hamster" -- the tendency towards solipsistic denial on the part of young women.

Forgiveness on God's part does not imply acceptance on the part of suitors.

("She s*cked off the President, for Pete's sake. I'll never compare to *that*.")

Well, you hit the jackpot on your posting #, anyway.

Cheers!

If you’ve seen the movie “dazed and confused” there’s a line where one
Guy has a dream of having sex with a
chick who has the head of Abraham Lincoln.

This would be similar , only the head
of a different president.

Ya know - when you're young you do a lot of stupid things. Hell, my personal rate of stupidity only seems to be increasing as I age. Fortunately for me, I never slept with a President, although if Condi were elected I might be tempted....

It's hard for me to believe that someone at that age, at that time, really had an understanding of the visibility of her actions. So yes, I do feel a bit sorry for her. I just can't imagine f-ing up my life so badly at such a young age. It would be nice if Ms. Lewinsky had the ability to drop from site and find eternal happiness, but, alas, that doesn't seem to be in the cards for her.

Given the circumstances - if I had the opportunity to pen a tale and get a few million dollars - I'm not so sure that I would turn it down - especially if the rest of my life was as s**t as her’s seem to continue to be.

It seems to me to be completely self-consistent. If Ms. Lewinsky had the self respect to not have to write such a book - she'd probably also have the self respect to not have had something to write about in the first place.

What does the Good Book say about reaping and sowing?

She believed she was someone, because she could attract and “entertain” the president... the most powerful man on the earth.

The reality was that her eagerness to uh, please was happily used and abused by a filthy, despicable rat who thought nothing of abusing his position of power over an insecure, starstruck intern who had zero self-respect.

These kinds of dysfunctional relationships are nothing new, but considering that in her case it became world news, leaving her to be seen by all - and for all time - as the slutty bimbo who even gained a permanent placename in the lexicon of the vulgar, I can see why she is where she is.

I may be in the minority around here but I feel sorry for her. She had to have had major daddy issues of abandonment. Yes, she was a foolish, trashy young woman, but evil Bill Clinton took full advantage of her immaturity and vulnerability and not only destroyed her psyche, but her ability to have a normal life.

Whatever family abandonment or abuse issues occurred with the grimy kenyan were not only out of the public eye, he chose to repay evil for even more evil (and that’s assuming he even has such an excuse), and punish an entire country for the sins of his elders. Or just destroy for the amusement of a power trip. No sympathy. Monica was relegated to a life with Ben and Jerry and a spoon.

You know, one thing I get awfully tired of on FR is the insistence on posting these sorts of pictures of pitiful women.

It's an impulse of a lot of FR males and it just is simply *not* classy. Frankly, it's a kind of icky porn and I'd really like to know what kind of conservatism it actually advances.

It just seems to say, "We hate women, and you know why? Because some of them are really too ugly to live..."

And then there's the notion that maybe some guys get turned on by this stuff? You know, like men who get aroused by shoes and feet.

I am surprised she hasn't died of some "mysterious" ailment already. I don't trust anyone associated with the Clintoons. I doubt a "tell all" book about Bill and Hillary would ever hit a shelf.

To be fair, her incident was responsible for bringing down Clinton.

'To be fair". . .it was 'their' incident; and more than incidental. To be fair as well; it was Matt Drudge's reporting of it (as Newsweek sat on it) that brought down Clinton. And then of course; there was the Clinton 'lie' that surpassed all others at that time. . .

Do think; given that no one has forgotten; nor was Monica 'forgiven'; but remains frozen between the Oval office and her blue dress; she may as well, capitalize on what simply remains as 'forever 'out there'.

That vile reprobate used and abused a 21 year old ‘girl’. I do not care how willing she was in her state of ‘love’, he knew better and lied to her just as he lied continually to US. And it was the reaction and response by Billy Graham to this snake that has forever changed my opinion of Billy Graham.

IF the supposed claim of $12 million is what will give Monica freedom from her tortured life then go for it. Having said all this I do not intend on buying her book. Having daily reports of this on Fox of this twisted man during my own children's youth will last me a life time.

To me, there were two tragedies of the Monica Lewinsky affair:
1) 68% of the people would not hold Bill Cliton accountable for his crimes of perjury, suborning perjury and conspiring to fix a Federal court case, in addition to lying directly to a Federal judge, and for creating a security risk via blackmail of the office of the President

2) the horrible treatment and vilification of Linda Tripp, whose advice to Monica to save the blue dress saved Monica from becoming another name on the Clinton death list.

she went after a married man. she wanted him to divorce his wife and marry her.

and the woman in the story you cite repented. i don’t see any evidence of that on her part, she’s trying to cash in on what she did for 12 million bucks.

i’ve never done what she did. we are told to judge, but to do so righteously - ie non-hypocritically. i’ve never tried to have sex with a maried person when i was single, hoping to break up their marriage and have them mary me. i also have never tried to profit by making a book about my dirty relationship secrets in a tell-all/book for 12 million dollars. and on top of that, be happy people think i’m still a victim and not responsible for conscious bad choices i made.
