For Monica Lewinsky, it’s better late than never. Almost 15 years after a sex scandal that not only jilted the White House but international policy during the Clinton administration, Lewinsky is reportedly planning to release a tell-all book documenting her alleged affair with former President Bill Clinton in a revenge attempt.
According to The New York Post, Lewinsky is shopping the memoir around to “big-name” publishers.
"I'm sure every major publisher was interested in hearing what she had to say," a source told the Post.
The details of the book have not been leaked, as the interested publishers had to sign nondisclosure agreements, but The Post reported the book is intended to get “revenge” on Clinton by spilling details about their “kinky sex” and “secret love letters.” Another source told The National Enquirer the book would share Clinton’s “insatiable desire for three-way sex, orgies and the use of sex toys of all kinds” as well as his “non-existent sex life” with wife, Hillary Clinton.
Lewinsky could reportedly get up to $12 million for the tell-all book because, according to a friend, she “can’t get a job because of Clinton” and “needs to make money somehow.”

Lewinsky’s affair with the President was revealed in 1998, when she was a 24-year-old intern at the White House. She was exposed after confiding in a coworker, Linda Tripp, who tape recorded their private conversations.
Lewinsky was ultimately forced to testify during Clinton’s impeachment proceedings, despite the President denying the allegations
"I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky,” Clinton famously said, before eventually being acquitted by the Senate and allowed to finish his term.
But Lewinsky is not the only person to pen a tell-all about a former politico. Most recently, Rielle Hunter penned a book about her affair with former Democratic nominee for Vice President John Edwards, "What Really Happened: John Edwards, Our Daughter and Me,” considered one of the biggest political scandals of all time. The book hit shelves this past June. The year before, Joe McGinniss wrote a book about former Vice President candidate Sarah Palin called, “The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin,” documenting her affair with basketball star Glen Rice. Back in 2009, former madam Kristin Davis wrote “The Manhattan Madam: Sex, Drugs, Scandal and Greed Inside America's Most Successful Prostitution Ring,” which documented former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s time using her escort service.
