Monica Lewinsky, Job Hunter

After the scandal, writes Lewinsky, “I turned down offers that would have earned me more than $10 million, because they didn’t feel like the right thing to do.” After moving between London (where she got her master’s degree in social psychology at the London School of Economics), Los Angeles, New York, and Portland, Oregon, she interviewed for numerous jobs in communications and branding with an emphasis on charity campaigns, but, “because of what potential employers so tactfully referred to as my ‘history,’” she writes, “I was never ‘quite right’ for the position. In some cases, I was right for all the wrong reasons, as in ‘Of course, your job would require you to attend our events.’ And, of course, these would be events at which press would be in attendance.”

Monica Lewinsky is 40 years old this year! And she has given an in-depth interview to Vanity Fair, where she declares it time to “burn the beret and bury the blue dress.” She says she wants to stop tip-toeing around her past and ‘write her own ending to her story,’ which I guess means in public, thanks to an all-too-convenient Hillary news peg!

Also important:

And she requests one correction of Beyoncé, regarding the lyrics to her recent hit “Partition”: “Thanks, Beyoncé, but if we’re verbing, I think you meant ‘Bill Clinton’d all on my gown,’ not ‘Monica Lewinsky’d.’”

“Thanks, Beyoncé, but if we’re verbing, I think you meant ‘Bill Clinton’d all on my gown,’ not ‘Monica Lewinsky’d.’”

My thoughts exactly!

I forget where, but a blog posted one of Monica’s old resumes, from when she applied to government jobs. It was no joke, one of the better resumes I’ve read. I feel bad for Monica frequently. But then I remember that she used to have brunch with Rupaul and I feel better.

“Monica Lewinsky’d” would mean “spat,” right? Bey and Jay are a modern couple.

As much as I love Hillary and want her to be our next president, what she, her husband, and the Clinton political machine did to the women Bill had affairs with is abominable.
