Monica Lewinsky Writing Tell-All Book About Bill Clinton Sex Scandal (Poll)
In a move that should surprise absolutely no one, Monica Lewinsky is reportedly meeting with publishers to shop a tell-all book about her romantic relationship with Bill Clinton, and the ensuing sex scandal.
Lewinsky was branded and scarred after the 1998 Bill Clinton sex scandal, and now it looks as if she is ready for revenge. Curiously, Lewinsky has kept a pretty low profile since the scandal, appearing for a couple of interviews here and there, but largely disappearing from the public eye. So why did she wait until now to sell her story?
Lewinsky is forcing publishers who meet with her to sign non-disclosure agreements to prevent any kind of information leak about the book, reports Newser.
"I'm sure every major publisher was interested in hearing what she had to say," said the source.
According to the Daily Mail, Lewinsky, now 39, details her encounters with the former President, Clinton's desire for threesomes, and his relationship with Hillary Clinton in the new book. The book will also include love letters that Clinton wrote to her during his presidency.
Lewinsky is reportedly writing the book because she is angry with the former President.
The former White House intern is angry that Clinton escaped the scandal relatively unharmed while she has been ridiculed for over a decade and has had a hard time with relationships and employment since the scandal, according to the National Enquirer.
A friend of the author's told the National Enquirer, "Monica has tried to move forward, but the nightmare of her affair with Bill still haunts her... She's facing 40 without a man in her life, and seething about the way her reputation was destroyed as the whole world watched ... For years, Monica tried to protect Bill out of a misplaced sense of loyalty. But she no longer feels that way, and her memoir is his worst nightmare.'

Lewinsky's tell-all book hasn't been sold yet, but the book is apparently drawing big offers. A friend of the author claims that the book could sell for as much as $12 million.
Lewinsky may be trying to embarrass Clinton with her tell-all book, but she could end up complicating Hillary Clinton's chances at the presidency. If and when Lewinsky's book comes out, it could be released potentially in the same timeframe as a Hillary Clinton presidential campaign.
It's been 14-years since Lewinsky had her "sexual relations" with the president on nine separate occasions, but the affair still hangs over Hillary. The Daily Mail reports that Hillary was heckled with chants of "Monica" as recently as July.
"I cannot comment on anything at this point," said a Lewinsky rep.
