Monica Lewinsky Breaks Virtual 10 Year Silence on Bill Clinton Affair in 'Vanity Fair' Essay

Monica Lewinsky, the woman made famous for her affair with President Bill Clinton during his time in the White House, has written a piece for Vanity Fair, breaking her virtual 10 year silence on the issue.

“It’s time to burn the beret and bury the blue dress,” the 40-year-old wrote in the magazine. “[It’s time to stop’ tiptoeing around my past – and other people’s futures. I am determined to have a different ending to my story. I’ve decided, finally, to stick my head above the parapet so that I can take back my narrative and give a purpose to my past. (What this will cost me, I will soon find out.)”

“Sure, my boss took advantage of me,” Monica said. “but I will always remain firm on this point: It was a consensual relationship. Any ‘abuse’ came in the aftermath, when I was made a scapegoat in order to protect his powerful position … The Clinton administration, the special prosecutor’s minions, the political operatives on both sides of the aisle, and the media were able to brand me. And that brand stuck, in part because it was imbued with power.”

“I, myself, deeply regret what happened between me and President Clinton,” she adds. “Let me say it again: I. Myself. Deeply. Regret. What. Happened.”
