Monica Lewinsky, whose affair with Bill Clinton nearly brought down his Presidency, is set to write a tell-all book about it for $12 million, according to reports.
The former White House intern, 39, will share letters she wrote to Clinton, 66.
“In them, she opened her heart about her love for Bill and how much happier she could make him than [Hillary Clinton],” an insider is quoted as saying.
“Some of what she wrote was so raw that she never sent them.”
Clinton has been so revered since he left the Oval Office that it’s almost easy to forget that he was only the second White House occupant ever to be impeached.
He was accused of perjuring himself after his affair with Lewinsky was exposed in 1998; he was acquitted in 1999 and left office in 2001 with strong approval ratings.
The 42nd President, whose DNC speech on behalf of President Obama this month was considered by many to be one of his all-time best, has rebuilt his image since.
Sources say that Monica Lewinsky’s book will reveal that Bill Clinton derided wife Hillary as a “cold fish” and complained about their “non-existent sex life.”
Lewinsky, whose post-scandal life has included work as a news correspondent and handbag designer, has had trouble earning a living, sources explained.
“No one will hire her and she can’t get a job … She needs to make money,” says a friend of Monica, who is persona non grata pretty much everywhere.
We can’t imagine why …
