Monica Lewinsky to get $12 million for Clinton details

LOS ANGELES — What to say about a book deal for Monica Lewinsky that will bring her a reported $12 million?

Slate points out former President Bill Clinton, with whom Lewinsky had sexual relationship, was paid $15 million for his memoir.

Lewinsky has already told her story once, in “Monica’s Story.” She was interviewed for the book by author Andrew Morton, whose unauthorized biographies include “Diana, Her True Story,” about the former Princess of Wales.

The new book is rumored to have three things that the earlier one did not: more salacious details about Lewinsky and Clinton, ostensible complaints by Clinton about his wife, Hillary, and Lewinsky’s love letters to Clinton, previously unpublished.

The New York Post writes, “In them, she opened her heart about her love for Bill and how much happier she could make him,” said the source. “Some of what she wrote was so raw that she never sent them.”

It’s been 15 years since Lewinsky’s encounters with Clinton, and 14 since the story hit the airwaves.
