Monica Lewinsky Apparently Shopping Around A Book

Former White House intern Monica Lewinsky, who famously had an affair with President Bill Clinton in the late ’90s, is shopping around a “top-secret book project” to “major publishers,” according to Page Six.
The 39-year-old has reportedly been chatting with big time publishers, who were all required to sign a nondisclosure agreement just to take meetings with the London School of Economics graduate. Her rep provided a cryptic statement to the Post, “I cannot comment on anything at this point.” Immediately following the Lewinsky-Clinton controversy, the California native remained a hot news item. By 2005, she wanted to be done with the whole debacle and “as best as possible, to avoid any publicity,” prompting her to relocate to England for a master’s program in social psychology. After Clinton’s memoir, 1,008-page book, “My Life” hit the market in 2004, Lewinsky reportedly said of the work:
“He could have made it right with the book. But he hasn’t. He is a revisionist of history. He has lied. I really didn’t expect him to go into detail about our relationship [in the book]. But if he had and he’d done it honestly, I wouldn’t have minded…I did though at least expect him to correct the false statements he made when he was trying to protect the presidency.”
Maybe she will accomplish in her book what Clinton failed to do in his own. Given his ego, I’d say the odds are pretty high that she’ll come out ahead.
