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

I saw her at an event at the time of the scandal and she was ghostly white, chubby and out of shape back then.

Bill Clinton obviously never cared about Monica Lewinsky, she was just a foolish young girl he could do stuff with.

Well, we were all young once. I could crack jokes about what the term “Lewinsky” means these days, but I look back at 22 and the dumb stuff I did at that age. No married women, but a couple of bad decisions were made to say the least.

Is there any evidence she was in love? Keep in mind she was blabbing to Linda Tripp and I don’t recall her saying she was in love. More worried Clinton might have her killed, and there was lots of talk about Clinton doing something wrong and Monica being encouraged to keep evidence to protect herself.

Really...I always thought she was sort of pretty back then. I suppose if she hadn’t been so chubby she’d have gone and gotten someone for herself instead of Hillary’s husband.

Having said that, my life from 19-30 was fraught with bad decisions. Some I shudder to recall, even at age 45. Then again, no one has asked me to write about them for 12 million, either..

By the grace of God go I. I can’t imagine what pain she is in. She was a very young girl who was taken advantage by the most powerful man in the world at the time. She loved him and thought he loved her. I pray that she can get some closure and find a husband who will love her. I think conservatives need to stop making fun of her and start to see her with eyes of a father whose daughter has been taken advantage of. No more jokes at her expense. This is her only life and we should not add to her pain and grief. Bill Clinton destroyed her life and he should be the one to bear responsibility

Still, the girl contributed a new word to the English language. Who among us can claim as much?!

Yep. A common noun. As in gave or got.

The word even made it into some late night police reports, if memory serves.

She is doomed to remain single the rest of her life. Any man who married her or even dated her would instantly become a laughingstock.

If you are a man, would you be seen with a woman who is not only world famous for fellating the president but whose name has become an euphemism for doing so?

I won't sit here and judge her (or anyone else), but I don't have any time or energy to even give a sh!t.

When you go back to 1998 and read some of the stories about her parents and the public comments they were making at the time, you realize that this country is filled with people who are 'effed up because they were raised as kids by 'effed-up adults ... and in 1998 a lot of these kids became young adults, and in 2012 these adults are 14 years older. I wouldn't spend a nickel to read a book about any of them.

He committed adultery, she did not.

By at least some definitions, both participants in an adulterous act are guilty of adultery. She knew he was married. Even as a horny young man, I avoided married women, and I did have opportunities.

She could write a very interesting and useful book if she is prepared to honestly discuss the coverup, the legal maneuvering, the obstruction of justice, the truth of Linda Tripp's testimony and the campaign to destroy Linda, etc.

I don't know what the rules are, but if it's possible, she should also waive attorney client privilege and instruct her lawyers to tell all. It's history now. I've always regretted that the principals in the celebrated controversies so often take their secrets to the grave. You hear me, G. Gordon Libby?

This skank did commit adultery. If you know the person is married, it does not give you an out just because you weren't married. It was her fault too. Goodness liberal minds around her is what is destroying our society. I am just glad that she paid for the deed. She was very young at 24? Really????? Her butt should have been fighting for American and not sucking up to the President.

I, too, feel sorry for her and am embarrassed by some of the filthy remarks of my fellow Freepers. 40 is still a young age (I married at 39) to find love. I hope it happens to her. I even know women who have had their first child at 41!

I don’t know where you both have been, but this was the best thing to ever happen to Clinton. He probably would have been considered an average President at best and now he is considered the best President (Democratic) after JFK in history.

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

Really? How so? He served his two full terms.

He's still the Dem party's sweetheart and the DNC's biggest draw. He even had a place at the convention.

He may have been impeached but you'd never know it to look at how he's treated.

Miscellaneous ramblings:

1. The most despicable person in the whole mess was Monica's father, Dr. Bernard Lewinsky. Recall that he gave multiple interviews right after the story broke, and he failed to come to his daughter's defense..he all but gave Clinton a pass for taking advantage of her. When my daughters were that age, had any older person they worked for had sex with them, even if willingly, I'd have beaten the crap out of they guy.

All Dr. Lewinsky ahd to do was hold a presser standing outside the WH, and call out Clinton for being a scumbag, and he would have been forced to resign.

2. The other person who is most culpable is Gore. Had Gore done the decent thing, said that what Clinton did was wrong, especially the lying under oath, Clinton would have been forced to resign, Gore would have become president, and he would have won by 10 points if not more, in 2000.

Which shows how funny life is sometimes, because had Gore been president on 9/11, we would have been in a world of hurt. We were lucky..very lucky

I always have felt that she was treated horribly. It was Clinton’s fault, not hers. He committed adultery, she did not. She is certainly not a saint or anything, but she was very young. He was the adult.

Bull crap she was an adult and showed her nasty butt to the married President of the US intentionally to get in his pants. I guess if anyone is equally at fault it is her mother who knew her plans and approved. She's a dumb cow who I have no sympathy for. Regarding Clinton, of course he's scum.

None of us has the Power to Judge her, that is God’s power alone. We, however, can and should judge her acts and her attitudes. To be honest I feel sorry for her in several respects, her family too.

Yes. And judging from her bubble-headed comments at the time, it sounds like her parents had a role to play in this too.

Overall, a sad commentary on contemporary, secular, liberal society.

“Man that blows”

Marriage can stink too, and she is smart enough to know it.

Also, she is very kind and giving to be living with her mother to look after her and her needs. They are no doubt good company for one another.

No matter what she accomplishes, no matter what she does, she will only be known around the world as the girl that Bill Clinton diddled with a cigar.

Who would want to marry someone like that,or worse yet, for her to be the mother of your child?

\He probably would have been considered an average President at best and now he is considered the best President (Democratic) after JFK in history.

A tribute to the Dems talent for 'creating THEIR reality' - at expense of harsher truths. (And a footnote to the Republicans susceptibility to finding themselves struck; deaf; dumb and blind to Leftist realities.)

Monica's 'dresscapade'/ and their mutual sexapade; painful as that was; did save Clinton 'treasonous' exposure of the darker side of Clinton,Inc. And of course; without Newt; Clinton's success would have been far less noteworthy.

i do have a certain degree of sympathy for her, she IS the epitome of sexual harassment victimhood. the powerful superior taking advantage of a weak subordinate. in this kind of power relationship, she CANNOT consent. and now we know why the law says that she cannot. her life was ruined.

and those in teh senate, especially those democrats who wrote, sponsored and championed these kinds of laws bear some level of responsibility for what has has become because it was their responsibility to go to bat for her. not one did. heck,. not one senator even looked at the evidence.

talk about being thrown under the bus!
