"I Was Virgin To Humiliation" Monica Lewinsky
Monica Lewinsky remained silent for 10 years after her sex scandal with former US president Bill Clinton- but no more. Following her very revealing Vanity Fair article in May, the most infamous White House intern in history is speaking out in a new TV interview, her first since 2003. The interview, part of a National Geographic special, The 90s: The Last Great Decade? previewed on Tuesday, July 1, NBC's Today show. In it, Lewinsky, now 40, what it was like to be catapulted into the spotlight in September 1998, by the Starr Report, which disclosed intimate details about her affair with the Commander-in-chief at the time. "That was one of the worst days of my life" she recalled, "I was virgin to humiliation of that level until that day" "After that day, I was the most humiliated woman in the world" Lewinsky said. "To have my narratives ripped from me, and turned into the Starr Report, and things that were turned over, and things they delved from my computer that I thought were deleted.. I mean it was violation just after violation," she told Nat Geo. Of the media storm that followed she added, " To be in the vortx of media maelstorm was quite alarming, frightening and confusing." "To be called stupid, and a slut, a bimbo, a ditzy, and to be taken out of context- it was excruciating" she admitted.
