*Has it been 10 whole years since the news of that stain on the blue dress of then White House intern, Monica Lewinsky, was discovered and revealed as a deposit from then president Bill Clinton?

Seems more like 20. But time heals – or at least distorts – right?

Ms. Lewinsky has surfaced wearing her big girl panties in an exclusive article in Vanity Fair.  In the publication, which will be released in digital form tomorrow (May 8), she aims to set the record straight about her affair with the president; and speaks about her regrets, how much money she turned down following the revelation, clarifications on what really happened versus what was reported in the media, why she’s going public now, and much more.

“It’s time to burn the beret and bury the blue dress,” she writes and  also says: “I, myself, deeply regret what happened between me and President Clinton. Let me say it again: I. Myself. Deeply. Regret. What. Happened.”

Lewinsky, 40, wants to set straight the rumors that her silence was bought by the Clinton’s saying nothing could be further from the truth. She says it is time to stop “tiptoeing around my past—and other people’s futures. I am determined to have a different ending to my story. I’ve decided, finally, to stick my head above the parapet so that I can take back my narrative and give a purpose to my past. (What this will cost me, I will soon find out.)”

Here are a few juicy excerpts from the Lewinsky-penned article:

“Sure, my boss took advantage of me, but I will always remain firm on this point: it was a consensual relationship.”

“I turned down offers that would have earned me more than $10 million, because they didn’t feel like the right thing to do.”

And in one remark aimed at singer, Beyonce, Lewinsky  requests one correction regarding the lyrics to her recent hit “Partition”:

“Thanks, Beyoncé, but if we’re verbing, I think you meant ‘Bill Clinton’d all on my gown,’ not ‘Monica Lewinsky’d.’”

Good point.

  1. Well, we all know Bouncy is not the brightest bulb in pack, but when it comes to nasty, Boner Lewinsky, both of you are neck and neck on the nasty scale.

  2. Monica Lewinsky, has always played the victim, she was no virign, and she went after the President, every picture you could clearly see a young women who set her mind on getting the most powerful man in the Country to make her other friends jealous of her. She was Fat and not good looking at the time. When you hide and sneak in and out of the White House you know what your doing. She knew she was not MARRIED TO HIM!!!!!! She knew how she got that stain on her dress was not the way she lost her virginity. I am not saying it was right but no one else has kissed and told, she stayed on a telephone and confessed, because THIS WHOLE THING WAS A SET UP. How do you distroy the President of the United States, and then be made a hero, a spokes person for Jenny Craig, and commercials for purses, and shoes. She is a disgrace to the United States of America. The person who saved America during the Nixon Term (Watergate)was destroyed, his wife and family left, in fact we do not know what happened to him. But miss “Sex Machine” was a made a hero.
    For this women to now say ANYONE especially the President took advantage of her is a out and out lie. Yes he was married and used bad judgement, and so did she. Take advantage of…….NEVER when she realized he was not leaving his wife she was crushed as Anita Hill was and took it out on him and exposed it to the world. SHAME ON HER. I will NEVER BUY “VANITY” Magazine WHAT “FAIR” ABOUT POSTING THIS WOMEN’S STORY……. Go back under the rock you crawled from under. You see Hillary his WIFE IS GOING TO RUN, and here you come with that stinky blue dress. You held on to that because you knew just what you were doing, you had been with other people sexually, why didn’t you have those underwear to show. PLEASE!!!!!!!
