American celebrity Monica Lewinsky rose to prominence abroad as a result of an illicit relationship she had with President Bill Clinton in the 1990s while she was an intern at the White House.
She was born into a Jewish family in San Francisco, California. She began working for then-chief of staff Leon Panetta as an unpaid intern at the White House in 1995, and a few months later she was offered a paid position in the office of legislative affairs.
So let’s start our post with the introduction of the main personality of the post…
Who Is Monica Lewinsky?
Monica Samille Lewinsky is an American activist, TV star, fashion designer, and former White House intern. She was born on July 23, 1973. In 1995 and 1996, when Lewinsky worked at the White House, Bill Clinton said he had an affair with her. The affair and its effects, including Clinton’s impeachment, became known as the Clinton–Lewinsky scandal in the years that followed.
Due to the news coverage of the political scandal, Lewinsky became a famous person all over the world. She went on to do a lot of different things after that, like designing a line of handbags under her own name, being a spokesperson for a diet plan, and working as a TV personality. Lewinsky left the public eye later to go to London and get her master’s degree in psychology. She came back into the public eye in 2014 as a social activist who spoke out against cyberbullying.
Relationship Between President Bill Clinton And Monica Lewinsky
Between November 1995 and March 1997, Monica Lewinsky had nine s*xual interactions with Bill Clinton, but none of those encounters resulted in an intimate s*xual relationship between the two of them. In 1996, she was sent to the Pentagon as a result of her bosses’ concerns that she would spend an excessive amount of time in close proximity to the president.
As soon as she told her coworker Linda Tripp about her affair with the president, Linda began taping all of their following talks together. These chats included both Linda and Monica Lewinsky.
After then, Lewinsky’s life was absolutely torn apart in the court of public opinion. She has even argued that she was the first person whose reputation was entirely destroyed internationally via the Internet. That would wind up being the beginning of the end for Lewinsky.
She was paid $1 million in 1999 for an interview with Barbara Walters on the show “20/20.” The interview had over 70 million viewers, making it the second most watched interview in the history of television, just behind Oprah Winfrey’s interview with Michael Jackson. Barbara Walters paid her $1 million for the interview.
Lyrics By Beyoncé About Monica Lewinsky
Monica Lewinsky took to Twitter to recommend that artist Beyoncé removes her name from her song “Partition,” which was released in 2013 after the singer said that she will be rewriting the lyrics of a song that will be included in her upcoming album due to ableist issues.
uhmm, while we’re at it… #Partition

In the song, Jay-wife Z reminisces about a man who “Monica Lewinsky’d all on my gown,” which is a reference to Lewinsky’s affair with Clinton and the now-famous blue dress that she wore and which served as crucial evidence in Clinton’s impeachment case. The song is a reference to the affair that Lewinsky had with Clinton.
Monica Lewinsky’s Net Worth
Lewinsky got a $500,000 advance for her 1999 memoir, “Monica’s Story,” and a million dollars for the rights to an exclusive interview she did with Barbara Walters for the show “20/20.” This appearance helped her stay in the public eye, and Celebrity Net Worth says that she is now worth $1.5 million.
Celebrity Net Worth said that in the year 2000, she became a spokesperson for Jenny Craig. She was supposed to get a million dollars if she lost at least 40 pounds in six months. But Jenny Craig broke the deal early and paid Lewinsky only $300,000 of the $1 million.
In 2002, on the HBO special “Monica in Black and White,” she had another chance to tell her side of what happened before the Clinton impeachment trial.
Lewinsky’s popularity has gone up and down over the years. She moved to the UK in 2005 and got her Master of Science in social psychology from the London School of Economics. In 2014, she went back to writing and a job in the media.
Lewinsky has also been an executive producer for the TV shows “Impeachment: American Crime Story” on FX and “15 Minutes of Shame.” She also hosted the reality show “Mr. Personality” and was on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” “The View,” “V Graham Norton,” and “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.”
