The Famous White House Intern That Had Sex With President Clinton
"Indeed, I did have a relationship with Miss Lewinsky that was not appropriate. In fact, it was wrong. It constituted a critical lapse in judgment and a personal failure on my part for which I am solely and completely responsible." Bill Clinton - August 17, 1998
January 18, 2002- Monica Lewinsky the infamous Washington intern dived back into the media spotlight on Wednesday during an interview with television critics as she attempted to promote her upcoming about the sex scandal that nearly brought down the Clinton administration.
Said one HBO executive, "It's like they hated her from the moment she walked in." Instead of asking specific questions about the documentary, several reporters pressed her on why she has reappeared to call more attention to herself instead of trying to live a more private life. The atmosphere was contentious, even hostile.
Lewinsky, flanked by Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey, the producers and writers of "Monica in Black and White," was visibly nervous during the session, which took place in front of a standing-room-only audience at the Pasadena Ritz-Carlton Hotel. She was often halting and awkward in her responses.
Chris Albrecht, president of original programming for HBO, said, "I was surprised by the aggressiveness and what seemed to be hostility almost from the very beginning. Monica was there to answer questions without repeating [what she addressed in] the documentary. She's not a professional public speaker. She came in a bundle of nerves and quickly became very flustered."
One of the tenser moments came when one reporter posed the question: "If a professor had consensual sex with a student, he'd be out of there in a New York minute. If a cop stopped someone and they had consensual sex, he would be fired on the spot. Why do you think we did not hold our president to the same moral standard we expect of others?" Lewinsky seemed thrown by the question and had difficulty responding. She started dabbing at her eyes with her fingers and when the producers or Sheila Nevins, executive vice president of original programming, attempted to flesh out answers or assist Lewinsky, several reporters shouted that Lewinsky should be allowed to fend for herself. "Why the hell is she here, then?" bellowed Gail Shister of the Philadelphia Inquirer.
The Lewinsky session was preceded by a long excerpt from the documentary, which was filmed in black and white and is scheduled to premiere on March 3 of 2002..A note at the beginning of the clip explained that she was paid for her participation. Lewinsky explained that she had wanted to participate in the project because she had heard that there were several movies in the works about the scandal and she was concerned about inaccuracies. In addition to clearing up misconceptions about her and her involvement in the scandal, Lewinsky said she had also wanted to address other issues, such as the right to privacy and the "misguided, prosecutorial zeal, abuse of power and so on." When asked how much she was paid for the project, she smiled and said, "Not enough to quit my day job." while adding that she is still designing handbags and taking classes at Columbia University.
