monica lewinsky tell all

I guess handbags aren’t working out for Monica Lewinsky. What secrets does the book she’s supposedly shopping around to publishing houses promise to reveal?

I mean, probably the ones you already knew. She had oral sex with Bill Clinton. There were cigars involved. I kind of thought we knew what happened. A really unfortunate hook-up happened, and a lot of people made bad choices. However, it’s a hook-up that now makes us look back to a glorious age when our major concern was whether or not the President was getting blowjobs at his desk.

It’s been 14 years since that scandal, and Monica has never really talked about it. However, Page Six reports that, at 39, she is:

“Making the rounds with major publishers, who were all asked to sign nondisclosure agreements to take the meetings….says an insider familiar with the project, “I’m sure every major publisher was interested in hearing what she had to say.”

I’m actually not really crazy about this idea, because what I remember most fondly about Monica Lewinsky was the fact that she once said that she didn’t want to talk about the affair because “I’m kind of known for something that’s not so great to be known for.” She seemed to realize that having affairs with people is a bad thing to do, and it’s not cool and brave and something you should share all about and expect accolades for. This seems like a mentality that has shifted considerably in the past decade (remember Michelle Bomshell McGee?) I always liked the fact that Monica seemed to feel like she’d made a bad decision and wanted to put it aside and move on with her life. It seemed so… tasteful.

Well, not anymore! I suppose to hell with the handbags, just tell us all about that blue dress.

(Who I am I kidding? I’d read it).
