Case of Presidential
Between November 1995 and March 1997, Lewinsky claims she had nine sexual encounters with Clinton, none of which involved intercourse. Since she spent so much time with President Clinton, Monica’s bosses decided to move her to the Pentagon in April 1996. Coworker Linda Tripp began covertly recording phone calls between Lewinsky and Tripp in September 1997 after she confessed to having a connection with the president.
The next month, in an affidavit given in the Paula Jones case, Monica denied having ever been romantically involved with Clinton. As the independent counsel for President Clinton, Kenneth Starr started looking into the Clintons’ Whitewater real estate ventures, Tripp gave Linda’s tapes to Starr.
He persuaded Lewinsky to save any gifts Clinton had given her, including the blue garment that held evidence of a sexual encounter. While Clinton initially denied having a connection with Monica Lewinsky while testifying under oath and in a press conference in January 1998, Clinton altered his tune after Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III obtained the blue dress. A grand jury heard testimony from both Clinton and Lewinsky, and the Office of the Independent Counsel granted transactional immunity to Monica Lewinsky.
At the time of the “20/20” interview, Monica Lewinsky drew an audience of 70 million viewers, making it the second most-viewed television interview of all time (after Oprah Winfrey’s 1993 conversation with Michael Jackson). Lewinsky earned $1 million in worldwide rights. For two segments on “Saturday Night Live,” Monica appeared as a special guest on May 8, 1999. Jenny Craig, Inc. signed a $1 million dollar endorsement contract with Lewinsky in January 2000; the diet firm wanted her to drop at least 40 pounds in a six-month period. The corporation raised a stir by hiring Monica as a representative and halted her campaign in April of that year, only paying her $300,000 of the $1 million they had promised her. “The Tom Green Show” and Monica’s own show, “Monica’s Postcards,” aired on Channel 5 in the U.K. in 2000 as well.
With “Monica in Black & White,” Lewinsky had the opportunity to give her side of the story and answer questions from an audience in 2002. During her time as host of “Mr. Personality” in 2003, she appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and “The View,” as well as “V Graham Norton.” As a teenager, Monica traveled from Los Angeles to London, where she lived for nearly a decade until returning to the public spotlight with appearances on National Geographic Channel’s “The 90s: The Last Great Decade” and “30 Under 30” events in 2014.
Bystander Revolution, an anti-bullying organization, invited Lewinsky to speak at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity three months after she gave a TED presentation on the subject in March 2015. Shame Nation: The Global Epidemic of Online Hate, a book written by Sue Scheff and Melissa Schorr in 2017, was Monica’s foreword for the book and she highlighted public shaming on “Last Week Tonight.”
Monica was a producer for the third season of “Impeachment: American Crime Story,” which focuses on the Clinton-Lewinsky controversy, written and directed by Ryan Murphy. The show premiered in the fall of 2021 after filming began in the fall of 2020.
As a result of the affair, Monica was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). She claims that knitting helped her cope with the unwanted public attention.
In 1999, as a result of her passion for handbag design, she founded The Real Monica, Inc., which she sold to retailers including Fred Segal and Henri Bendel. “Shame and Survival” for “Vanity Fair” was Lewinsky’s first foray into the public eye since 2005, when she authored an essay for the magazine and became a regular contributor to the magazine’s website.
