Monica Lewinsky and Bill Clinton Scandal Back on Spotlights with PBS Documentary


Los Angeles time reported that Monica Lewinsky has attempted to keep a low-profile after her role in President Bill Clinton’s impeachment scandal made her name the butt of many late-night jokes. But she’s likely to become a topic of discussion again when PBS airs its much anticipated two-part, four-hour documentary on the former president, titled “Clinton.” Yet Monica Lewinsky and Bill Clinton issue is back on spotlights and even the talk of the town now.

According to the report, a new PBS documentary reveals that Bill Clinton struggled with whether to come clean to the American public — as well as those close to him, including cabinet members disbelieving of the allegations — about his affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

He even went so far as to reach out to pollster Dick Morris to test the waters on whether he should be honest about his relationship with Lewinsky. Of course, this was after he had spouted the whole “I did not have sexual relations with that woman” spiel.

The documentary, which premieres on PBS as part of its “American Experience” series on Monday, will shed new light on Clinton’s Oval Office affair with his 23-year-old intern through interviews with some of Clinton’s closest advisors, some of whom are speaking publicly about the affair for the first time.

After the scandal, Lewinsky went through a period of alternately embracing and avoiding her celebrity. She attended the Oscars with Sir Ian McKellan, became a spokeswoman for Jenny Craig, hosted a reality show called “Mr. Personality,” was a correspondent for a British news program and sold a line of handbags.

In 2005, she left the U.S. and moved to London, attending the London School of Economics and graduating with a masters in social psychology in 2006. Though she has given interviews on the subject of the Clinton affair, most notably in an HBO special titled “Monica in Black and White,” she has kept an extremely low profile in recent years.
