SHARE Monica Lewinsky opens up, blames Drudge for ‘global humiliation’

It’s been nearly 20 years since the tale of a blue dress, a cigar and an affair rocked the White House, and now Monica Lewinsky is taking to the pages of Vanity Fair to talk about the scandal involving President Bill Clinton.

I, myself, deeply regret what happened between me and President Clinton. Let me say it again: I. Myself. Deeply. Regret. What. Happened, Lewinsky, 40, says.

The magazine posted excerpts online Tuesday, with the full interview becoming available Thursday in the digital edition, and May 13 on the newsstands.

Lewinsky also says “it’s time to burn the beret and bury the blue dress.”

She also thanks the Drudge Report.

“I was also possibly the first person whose global humiliation was driven by the Internet,” Lewinsky writes.

She goes on to say that her previous silence had nothing to do with a payoff from the Clintons and that it was time for her to stop “tiptoeing around my past.”

“I am determined to have a different ending to my story,” Lewinsky writes. “I’ve decided, finally, to stick my head above the parapet so that I can take back my narrative and give a purpose to my past. (What this will cost me, I will soon find out.)”
