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.
That top article was funny as hell, and right on the money.
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.
OMG...that is SO Funny! LOL!
Fist, I don't see how anyone can let themselves look like that and second - how could you go out in public looking like that???
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.
Janet Reno? Donna Shalala?
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
LOL! Perfect match!
So when do I get my $12mil for being a young, dumb, slut? Hmmm? I’m still waiting!!
Yep. A common noun. As in gave or got.
The word even made it into some late night police reports, if memory serves.
Well, what did she think would happen? As my husband would say “think about where her mouth has been!”
I’m sure with $12 million she’ll find some fool.
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?
But as compensation, she is the eponym of fellatio.
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.
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.
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?
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.
I still can’t believe that some publisher is willing to pay her $12 million for a 16 year old story.
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.
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
That dress saved her life.
You are correct.
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.
Friends said it was probably cash, not just revenge that was driving her.
Good for her!!!
still faces the hangover of massive legal costs relating to the Clinton affair
Does anybody know what all this cost is about? This took me by surprise. Thank you.
“I won’t sit here and judge her (or anyone else), “
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.
Monica and Bill deserved each other.
“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.
Who would want to marry someone like that,or worse yet, for her to be the mother of your child?
Good post. I also feel sad for all young women who believe the world’s lies and don’t understand their true dignity and destiny.
He was not brought down. If anything, it enhanced his reputation among the whores and sluts.
agreed . i hope she can live a regular life.
“It was pretty much the textbook definition of sexual harassment. Bubba was lucky democrat women never revolted against him. It is always about political power”
You are correct.
Id say her days of hob-knobbing are over.
I’d say her days of knob-hobbing are over. Just sayin’...
As well as probably 90% of people on FR at one point or another...
You are right. Almost everyone else that responded to my comment blames Monica not Clinton. I can never understand that kind of thinking. She made him do it? Baloney.
so now we know where old “person in charge of BJ’s” types go when their lips go...
the context i was discussing this in is that she was not a victim and not innocent but made her own deliberate choices. whether 90% of others also made the same choice dosn’t change this.
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!
“She committed fornication”
“As well as probably 90% of people on FR at one point or another...”
A good/excellent zinger. Thank you. You hit the nail on the head!!!!
THAT WAS A DAMN FUNNY BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
YOU SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN THE $MILIONs
I love the way you always referred to Janet Reno as a man
