Lewinsky signed a $12 million book contract with an unnamed major publisher.
There will soon be a joint press conference about the new Monica Lewinsky memoir, which is set to include love letters, along with "Bill Clinton's secret preferences" and sensitive details of each adulterous tryst.
Former President Bill Clinton, 66, has experienced a bit of a TV comeback during the 2012 presidential race, and Monica Lewinsky, 39, is not letting it go to waste.
As she approaches age 40, alone and without serious career prospects, is Monica Lewinsky out to destroy the presidential legacy of William Jefferson Clinton, once and for all?
Unbound by old federal gag orders, Monica Lewinsky is "now free to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth" in eye-popping, brow-raising, highly-adult, shocking detail.
Monica Lewinsky of the notoriously historical "Lewinsky Scandal" is a native Californian who was born in San Francisco and raised in West L.A., Brentwood and Beverly Hills.
Young Monica regularly attended Sinai Temple in Los Angeles. She was a student at L.A.'s Sinai Akiba Academy, the John Thomas Dye School in Bel Air, Beverly Hills High School, Bel Air Prep and Santa Monica College.
Monica Lewinsky worked for Beverly Hills High School before completing her bachelor's degree in psychology and moving to Washington, DC.
Lewinsky landed an unpaid summer internship in the office of fellow Californian and White House Chief of Staff Leon Panetta. She was later hired for a paid position in the White House Office of Legislative Affairs.
In a decision heavily influenced by Hillary Clinton, Lewinsky was ultimately transferred out of the White House to The Pentagon in order to distance her from President Clinton.
News of the Clinton–Lewinsky affair broke on The Drudge Report in 1998.
Shortly afterward, President Bill Clinton insisted, "I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky" on television.
Monica Lewinsky spent weeks hiding in the Watergate complex, then finally testified before a federal grand jury.
Lewinsky was interviewed by Barbara Walters for $1 million, cooperated with Andrew Morton's Monica's Story for $500,000, appeared on "Saturday Night Live," did Jenny Craig TV commercials for $300,000, moved to New York, appeared on MTV, did the British Channel 5 show "Monica's Postcards," appeared for HBO on "Monica in Black and White" and hosted the reality show "Mr. Personality" on FOX.
Monica Lewinsky also appeared on "The View," "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "Larry King Live" and numerous other TV talk shows across America and Europe. By 2005, Lewinsky could not escape the spotlight in America, so she moved to London, where she earned a master's degree in social psychology from the London School of Economics.
Over the last several years, Monica Lewinsky has insisted that former President Bill Clinton has been lying about her and desecrating her character, so Lewinsky is back from the shadows for a memoir to "set the record straight about my consensual relationship with Bill Clinton."
Apparently, truth, justice and honor are at stake... along with a $12 million payday. At long last, Monica Lewinsky is about to light up that cigar in public.
Judging by the following video, showing Egyptian protesters taunting U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with chants of "Monica! Monica! Monica!" during her recent visit to Alexandria, the Monica Lewinsky scandal may never die.
"Monica! Monica! Monica!"
