One can only imagine what the ultimate survivor/opportunist Skinnygirl Frankel would have done (Playboy, First Woman Presidency?) with the fame cards Monica Lewinsky had been dealt 18 years ago. A good Jewish girl who unwittingly became the bad girl of the last century, Lewinsky, now 39, is pretty, smart and funny. And she now has a $12,000,000 tell-all book deal.
When Newt Gingrich’s crowd shut down the gov. in 1995 , there was no one on the payroll to deliver the White House pizzas at midnight. Enter, Monica Lewinsky trusted 22 year old intern. Add a predatory POTUS with a sex compulsion; nine furtive workplace encounters that were more teenage than actual, consummated big girl sex; a blue dress; and mean girl confidant Linda Tripp and what you have is/was a scandalous, constitutional mess.
Since then, Mr. And Mrs. Clinton have had their happy ending as has Linda Tripp who is married
and runs a year-round Christmas store in Virginia selling White House tree ornaments and German decorations.
Monica Lewinsky? Not so much in the Hollywood ending dept–yet. (I have high hopes for the book and her ultimate smart girl/ foolish choices resilience. Hey, we were all 22 once and few of us had bosses as powerful or seductive as B. C.
Lewinsky’s life been purposefully private and somewhat academic (London School Of Economics,etc ) ,but as bad luck would have it, she was snapped on a not very pretty rainy day in New York wearing a puffer coat looking puffy. It’s one one of those moments and pictures you don’t want your ex or ex-rivals to see. But there it is. We all have them. And we now have Twitter to send it viral.
