According to a report from Huffington Poston September 19, sources and insiders claim that Lewinsky is shopping major publishers for a lucrative deal rumored to be worth millions. Will the salacious claims read as steamy as a “50 Shades of Grey” novel?
The Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandalshocked the world in 1998 at a time when the president was enjoying great numbers in polls while leading the nation towards a budget surplus.
While Impeachment proceedings took place, Clinton, who famously said, while looking into the television camera, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky,” was cleared of wrong-doing despite admitting to misleading the American people.
The Monica Lewinsky tell-all book is said to finally offer the world a scandal-laden-glimpse into what really took place. She and the president are pictured here September 21, 1998.
Allegedly Lewinsky and Clinton met up on nine occasions. However, none of the trysts included intercourse, according to insiders.
One source suggested that the former White House intern is prepared to talk about Bill Clinton’s alleged past interest in “threesomes” and her secret abortion. At this point, it’s pure tabloid-talk, but don’t count out a bombshell.
Lewinsky moved to England seven years ago to work a graduate degree in social psychology. She then worked for five years as a news correspondent in the UK. Today, she owns The Real Monica Inc., a company that designs purses.
A Monica Lewinsky tell-all scandal-book will not likely derail Bill Clinton’s popularity-boost the ex-president received after his speech in support of Obama at the Democratic National Convention.
Clinton was lauded as an elder statesman, whose speech easily trumped Clint Eastwood’s “empty-chair” monologue at the RNC in Tampa.
A tell-all-book by Monica Lewinsky is likely to boost him and Obama’s popularity numbers even higher. Controversy actually works in a candidate’s favor at times.Controversy actually works in a candidate’s favor at times. Undoubtedly, Mitt Romney and his campaign camp are putting in first dibs for a First Edition copy.
While Lewinsky stands to earn millions from a tell-all-book, Monica may have much more to gain from an intrinsic point of view. As a WP writer said: “In a weird way, I hope she delivers an honest, introspective account of how she managed to clear away the emotional rubble, if indeed she has, and if indeed our celebrity-train-wreck culture will let her 14 years after her world imploded.”
Well said, indeed.
