How I was left suicidal, turned down $10million in offers and was made a scapegoat to save Bill Clinton's career, by Monica Lewinsky at 40 -- DailyMail.co.uk

Moving on: Monica Lewinsky has purposefully kept a private life in the wake of the scandal but now feels she can be an advocate for those who have the internet partially to blame for their problems (pictured in October 2012)
  • Bill Clinton's mistress has opened up about how she fought off suicidal thoughts after the 1998 scandal
  • 'It's time to burn the beret and bury the blue dress,' she writes in Vanity Fair's upcoming issue
  • Lewinsky, now 40, feels motivated to help victims of cyber bullying
  • 'Thanks to the Drudge Report, I was also possibly the first person whose global humiliation was driven by the internet'
  • Turned down offers of up to $10million because they would have relied on her trading on her infamy; denies that the Clintons paid her off
  • Said that she remained 'virtually reclusive' during Hillary's 2008 campaign but 'should I put my life on hold for another 8 to 10 years?'
  • Playfully corrected Beyonce for putting a lyric in her song saying that a man 'Monica Lewinski'd all on my gown'

  • Monica Lewinsky has opened up about her infamous presidential affair to reveal that she turned down offers that would've amounted to $10million because she 'didn't feel like the right thing to do'. 

    Lewinsky, now 40, has penned a tell-all essay for Vanity Fair and snippets from the article shows how now- on the eve of another likely Clinton presidential campaign- was the right time to come forward. 

    'It’s time to burn the beret and bury the blue dress,' she said, poking fun at the infamous '90s attire that she is so closely associated with.

    'Sure, my boss took advantage of me, but I will always remain firm on this point: it was a consensual relationship. Any ‘abuse’ came in the aftermath, when I was made a scapegoat in order to protect his powerful position,' she wrote in the essay. 

    'The Clinton administration, the special prosecutor’s minions, the political operatives on both sides of the aisle, and the media were able to brand me. And that brand stuck, in part because it was imbued with power.'
