(PresidentialInsider.com)- Monica Lewinsky, the television personality and fashion designer who is best known for being the former White house intern who admitted to having an affair with former President Bill Clinton, has admitted before the premiere of a new dramatization of her story that she believes Clinton should apologize to her.
TV drama “Impeachment: American Crime Story,” which follows the story of Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky before and during the impeachment, hit our screens on September 7. In an interview on the Today Show, Lewinsky opened up about her 1998 experience – which made her one of the most famous women in the world – and described how Linda Tripp, who she believed was a friend, released details of her affair to the public.
Lewinsky added that she is nervous to see some of the most “cringeworthy” judgments she had made in her life on the television screens. She also said that she was proud of the project, having worked as a producer of the show, but revealed she was nervous for people to see how she behaved when she was in her 20s.
The FX show will examine not just President Clinton’s role in the affair but also Lewinsky’s culpability that ultimately led to the impeachment, which will go down in history.
When asked whether she has any negative feelings about the former president to this day, Lewinsky said that she was at the White House for a long period before her life changed, and that she always felt like there wasn’t a “resolution.”
She did add, however, that she is grateful not to have that feeling anymore, and she doesn’t need that feeling anymore.
Most notable, she said that Clinton “should want to apologize” to her in the same way that he apologized to other people he hurt, either through words or actions.
Impeachment: American Crime Story is now available to watch on demand.
