Ms. Lewinsky, the woman who will forever be the intern with a stained blue dress, has decided to capitalize on her long-lived fame and sullied name. The Post reports that she got a $12 million book deal, although the publisher has not been disclosed. That’s a lot of money (especially in these days of austerity and low book advances) but apparently Ms. Lewinsky has the goods.
The book will have details about the Clintons’ (allegedly non-existent) sex life, Ms. Lewinsky’s previously, miraculously unpublished love letters to the President (she was apparently very much in love) and more details than anybody could ever want to know about Mr. Clinton’s sexual proclivities (where there’s a cigar….there is apparently worse).
It isn’t that Ms. Lewinsky is so eager to retell her story. She just needs some cash. Ms. Lewinsky, now 40, got a master’s degree, briefly worked as a television reporter in England and designed a line of handbags.
“No one will hire her and she can’t get a job because of Clinton,” a sympathetic friend told The Post. “She needs to make money somehow.”
We hope she still has an extra-large handbag lying around – $12 million is a lot of dough.
