Monica Lewinsky gets $12 million book deal
What to say about a book deal for Monica Lewinsky that will bring her a reported $12 million?
Slate points out Bill Clinton was paid $15 million for his memoir. It does seem wrong that the difference between the man who was a two-term president of the United States and the woman who had a sexual encounter with him was only $3 million. Or maybe sad.
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 the somewhat scandalous “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Clinton, ostensible complaints by Clinton about his wife, Hillary, and Lewinsky’s love letters to Clinton, previously unpublished.
To put her book deal in perspective, Letters to Penthouse XII: It Just Gets Hotter is only $7.99.
So if we call her a whore, will she get to testify before Congress about the blue dress?
