Monica Lewinsky Gives Her Past a Purpose in Vanity Fair

Hosted by

Monica Lewinsky says she hasn't been heard from in public for ten years. In the May issue of Vanity Fair she says, "The buzz in some circles has been that the Clinton's must have paid me off" — adding that "nothing could be further from the truth." She says she picked this moment to go public after the suicide of a young man whose photo kissing another man went viral reminded her of her of the "shame, scorn and fear" she felt when her relationship to then-President Bill Clinton was revealed. Robin Abcarian is a columnist for the Los Angeles Times.
