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
Hi mom, please meet my fiancee Monica!
That dress saved her life.
Good grief... I can't wait to find out who the Sinkmeister had in mind for that.
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.
Unfortunately for her, there’s nothing attractive about getting Bill Clinton’s genital herpes through an intermediary.
And let's not forget FAT.
In spite of it all, I actually do think that Monica was delusional enough to think that Billy Jeff loved her, The tre=agedy is that she had no clue that he is a big league narcissist and Hillary was never going to leave him.
But then again she thought it was okay to be boinking someone else’s husband PLUS they disrespected the Oval office....so my sympathy is about the size of your tiny violin
40 and never married still living at home. Man that blows
Playing....My Heart Bleeds For You
She blew it!
It sucks to be her!
She really needs to get more creative in her husband hunting. She should spice up her dating site ads, such as: Aging single white woman desires a cigar smoking man who likes his women easy, chunky, without any morals or self worth. Wants her man to treat her like sh!t and degrade her in public before he throws her away. Looking for a semi-permanent relationship but will settle for what I can get.
She can on tour with Sandra Fluke on the elementary school circuit encouraging girls to be sluts
She could have been a world class tuba player.
Here’s the bottom line on this story.
- Someone will foolishly giver her $12 mil to write it.
- All the relevant parts will be given away in news stories and exposed in online forums.
- Book doesn’t sell ends up in bargain book bins for $1 or is tossed because merchants don’t want to be embarrassed for even selling it at that point.
- She’s obscure all over again. No boyfriend, no children, no home.
You know what’s so sad about this is there is just no way on Earth, no humanly way possible she can even go on a first date without any guy thinking “I wonder if I’ll get a Lewinsky.”
This is what happens when you go through life having been young, dumb and slutty.
You just described half of the white chicks in the US.
No, Monica, liberalism, free love, and guaranteed abortion were the most important things to you. You were so enamered by the leader of the Party of No Responsibility that you got on your knees before him.
I’d say her days of hob-knobbing are over.
Still, the girl contributed a new word to the English language. Who among us can claim as much?!
I almost feel sorry for her. Then again, she’s making alot of bad choices; living at home, living in NYC, and wearing birkienstocks.
To be fair, her incident was responsible for bringing down Clinton.
She chose her path.
Sure, she was a young intern, but being a young intern has nothing to do with character or morals. She can’t blame Bill for what she willingly did.
Willingly as in, yes, she thought it might get her somewhere - and it did - just not where she might have wanted.
No sympathy. None.
.......and what’s with the bag, is that for her bowling ball?
Well ... in her case she was young, dumb and full of c ... um, something that rhymes with dumb!
Life is the sum of your decisions, large and small.
Ouch. You are correct.
I found the right one for me outside of the US.
Been in a Wal-Mart lately? She’s a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model compared to the average female in most discount stores.
She needs to hook up with that millionaire who blew $65,000 on those upscale dating sites.
"According to reports..." is pretty hard to evaluate. I'm thinking that she hasn't been offered anything concrete, but is having her agent float that story in order to telegraph to Bill Clinton the size of the check he has to write to shut her up and burn the manuscript.
She had her chance at success and blew it. Don’t worry about her, she’ll be back on her knees in no time. I hear her book sucks.
The life of a groupie. What did she think, that she was better than the rock and roll groupies?
I was in a Wal-Mart yesterday.
You have a point.
Different spackle compounds, various trowels, sand paper, etc...
Monica was an adult as well. Younger than Bill, yes, but an adult. An adult who freely chose her actions. Do you think she was innocent in her choice of fellating the President? Do you think she had no ulterior motive as naive as it was?
Well, you know, she is an actual victim of the democrat war on women.
“Been in a Wal-Mart lately? Shes a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model compared to the average female in most discount stores.”
Apparently, America has gone to pot in more ways then one.
I feel fortunate to have not been there in the last ten years.
The title parody was obviously a parody of Citizen Kane, with a reporter catching up with the principles after the death of Bill Clinton, hoping to find meaning in his last word "Rosebush".
The sections about Monica turned out to be pretty on the mark...
EXT. CHEAP GO-GO BAR - "MUFFIN LIPS" - ATLANTIC CITY - NIGHT - 2023 - RAIN
Muffin Lips, spelled out in neon, glows out of the darkness at the end of the fade out. Then there is lightning which reveals a squalid roof-top on which the sign stands. Thunder again, and faintly the sound of music from within. The camera moves in as Thompson walks through door to the seedy go-go bar, drunks stumble out, laughing.
DISSOLVE: INT. "MUFFIN LIPS" GO-GO BAR - NIGHT - 2023
Loud noise and music all around. All male clientele. Topless girls in G-strings dance in center of bar. Unheard conversation between Thompson and a very large bouncer. A bill changes hands. The bouncer walks Thompson towards a corner of the bar, where a very fat woman is bartending.
BOUNCER: Yo Monica, this is Mr. Thompson. Take a break. He wants to talk to you about Clinton.
Monica looks up into Thompson's face, with a dopey, sweet countenance - lonely... eager to please. She is almost fifty, trying to look much younger, in a cheap, enormously generous, black evening dress. Wearing her trademark beret, she is still trying to capitalize on her fame. The dress even has a well placed, intentional stain.
MONICA: (to the bouncer) This doesnt count as my regular break, right, Manny?
Low thunder from outside.
BOUNCER: No, sweetie. He just wants to ask you some questions. Ill bet theres a good tip in it for you.
THOMPSON: Of course, theres a sizable tip. Even more sizable if you can provide the answers I am looking for.
They move to a table, away from the dancing area.
MONICA: How do you want to handle the whole thing - ask questions?
THOMPSON: I'd rather you just talked. Anything that comes into your mind - about yourself and the President.
MONICA: You wouldn't want to hear a lot of what comes into my mind about myself and Mr. Bill Clinton.
THOMPSON: How did you meet him?
MONICA: I had a pizza... that was thirty years ago - and I still remember that pizza. Mmmm! It had sausages, pepperoni, extra cheese...
DISSOLVE: INT. HALLWAY OUTSIDE OVAL OFFICE - 1997
Monica, aged twenty-one, neatly but cheaply dressed, in a low cut dress. Showing generous cleavage, she carries a pizza towards the door to the oval office. Betty Currie watches as she approaches. No words are exchanged, but Betty smiles and gives her a thumbs up. Monica pulls down the front of her dress, exposing even more cleavage before knocking.
CLINTON: (behind door) Come in.
MONICA: Mr. President, Betty said you might like a little bit of pizza.
CLINTON: You bet I would!
Scene moves in to the Oval Office. As Monica enters, Clinton puts his arm around her, letting it slide down onto her buttocks. He closes the door behind him.
CLINTON: My secretary prefers me to keep this door closed when I have a lady caller. She's a very decent woman. I was just about to head down into the White House storage area - in search of my youth... but I should have a bite to eat first. You see, my mother died, recently. I've sent for her belongings but Ive been too busy to go down and look through them. I planned to make a sort of sentimental journey - (a melancholy tone overcomes his speech) - to the scenes of my youth - my childhood, I suppose...
His melancholy mood passes quickly, and thoughts return to the business at hand.
CLINTON: My, youre a sexy, young thing. Hardly fat at all! Have I ever seen you before?
MONICA: (smiling very broadly) Why thank you Mr. President! Weve passed in the halls a few times. You know, I have a bit of a crush on you.
CLINTON: Obviously, we're both lonely. (he smiles) Hey! Do you want to see an elephant?
The president pulls the pockets out of his suit pants, so they hang inside out at his sides.
MONICA: (flirtatiously) Well theres his ears... but I want to see his trunk!
CLINTON: How old did you say you were?
MONICA: I didn't say.
CLINTON: I didn't think you did. If you had, I wouldn't have asked you again, because I'd have remembered. How old?
MONICA: Pretty old. I'll be twenty-two in August.
CLINTON: That's a ripe old age. Certainly old enough to meet an elephant.
DISSOLVE: INT. "MUFFIN LIPS" GO-GO BAR - NIGHT - 2023
Monica tosses down a drink, then goes on with her story.
MONICA: I saw the elephant alot after that. It sorta became my entire job. He was in love with me. But he never told me so until after it all came out about us. At first, when we were found out... he acted like he wasn't really in love with me. He was a little mean, even. I was all set to tell everything. Then, next thing I know, I was whisked away by some Arkansas State Troopers... right from the lobby of the Watergate hotel - in the middle of Washington! That kinda convinced me that he really cared about me.
THOMPSON: But Clinton never once said a nice thing about you in public.
MONICA: He really did love me, though. I know you don't believe me, but it just happens to be true! The troopers... they took me to see him. The Big He's dead now, (sniff) so I guess I can talk about it. He said we'd be in big trouble if Ken Starr even found out we were talking. I was supposed to be cooperating with Mr. Starr by then.
THOMPSON: Did he tell you to lie to Mr. Starr?
MONICA: Bill Clinton never told me to lie! He just made up stories that I should tell instead of the stories that actually happened. But I swear, Mr. Thompson, never once did he tell me to lie!
THOMPSON: Did you ever feel that he was just using you... you know... sexually?
MONICA: Of course not, he was really interested in my personality. (sharply) What are you smiling for? You think I'm delusional don't you? Just like my therapist! Well I'm not! Why else would Bill try so hard to get me a new job? I didn't ask for a new job! I didn't want to leave the White House. It was his idea - everything was his idea - except Linda Tripps tapes.
DISSOLVE: INT. VERNON JORDANS LAW OFFICE - DAY - 1997
Monica is practicing her interviewing technique. Vernon Jordan is playing the role of interviewer. Clinton is seated nearby.
MONICA: I like to talk on the phone alot...to my friends and junk...lunch times the best part of the day...double whopper with cheese, fries, apple pie, and Diet Coke...twelve noon, like clockwork. I like sex, too...
JORDAN: Impossible! Impossible!
CLINTON: Your job isn't to give Ms. Lewinsky your opinion of her interviewing skills. You're supposed to ensure she gets a good job in New York. Nothing more.
JORDAN: (sweating) But, it is impossible. If this ever comes out, I will be the laughingstock of the corporate world! People will say -
CLINTON: If you're interested in what people say, Vernon, I may be able to enlighten you a bit. The newspapers, for instance. I'm an authority on what the papers will say, Vernon, because I tell them what to say. It's all right, dear. Mr. Jordan is going to listen to reason. Aren't you, Vernon? (he looks him square in the eyes)
JORDAN: Mr. President, how can I persuade you -
CLINTON: You can't.
There is a silence. Jordan shrugs his shoulders.
CLINTON: I knew you'd see it my way.
DISSOLVE: INT. "MUFFIN LIPS" GO-GO BAR - NIGHT - 2023
Monica and Thompson are still at the table. A stripper has sidled up next to Thompson. There is an awkward moment of silence, before Thompson stuffs a bill in her G-string. She sashays away, and the conversation continues.
MONICA: Well, as you know, I did get a job offer. At Revlon, in New York City. At first, they didnt want to give me a job. They said I was inprofessional. But after a call from my interviewing coach, Mr. Jordan, they said I was the best candidate they ever saw.
THOMPSON: You never did get to work there, though.
MONICA: No, after the Ken Starr thing broke, it didnt seem like a good idea. I did get tons of money for my book. Well, at least my lawyers did. I got some, though.
THOMPSON: I feel kind of sorry for you, all the same -
MONICA: (harshly) Don't you think I feel sorry for myself? (calming down) You're going down to Ken Starrs warehouse next?
THOMPSON: Monday, with some of the boys from the office. Mr. Rawlston wants the whole place photographed carefully - all that evidence stuff. We need visuals you know...
MONICA: I know. If you're smart, you'll talk to Carville. He works as the night watchman there, now. You can learn a lot from him. He knows where the bodies are buried.
THOMPSON: What about the Presidents last word? "Rosebush". Do you know anything about Rosebush?
MONICA: Maybe it was the color of the lipstick I wore on my Barbara Walters interview! He would have liked that color. He always said I had beautiful lips. And he told me that we would get back together one day. He was probably going to call soon. But now, hes gone. Rosebush, huh, must have been that lipstick color...
THOMPSON: No, Im sorry... that color was "Melancholy Cherry".
MONICA: Oh... we would have got back together eventually, though. About that tip?
THOMPSON: Of course, here it is.
MONICA: A fifty! Wow, thanks! Usually, I have to show my boobs, or crush a beer can between them to get a tip like that. I guess that doesnt sound very classy, but I do it in good taste.
Thompson is already walking out as she finishes her last sentence.
I’d never marry her, I just don’t like cigars that much.
She committed fornication. She’s ain’t a saint.
I think you mean BILL could have been a world-class tuba player.
I have heard that she’s been quite popular in the New York Club scene, for years.
But fame is fleeting, isn’t it.
I’ve made some horrendous decisions in my life, when I was younger. Glad some people still had sympathy for me. I dont know what its like to be perfect, so maybe its just hard for some people.
To think how *proud* her father was of her back then....
She needs to get a life.
Just like any number of kids the liberals have destroyed.
Remember that poor lezbo WH intern who later got shot in the head in the starbucks walk-in refrigerator in georgetown....along with ALL her co-wokers...?
Name was Mahoney or something...i wonder how closely she worked with Hillary....
She is a beautiful woman in the photos wearing makeup, and always had fabulous hair. It’s tragic that at 22 her future was sealed, black-balled by the Left, no one to hire her would live, her handbags weren’t well financed and failed.
And the years came and went.
