After I read the recently released news that the most famous intern on earth, Ms. Monica Lewinsky was speaking out, I started asking myself… but, why now? For those of you who are too young to even remember who Monica Lewinsky is, or for those who were maybe too busy with your own life issues to hear about the mess she got herself into, let me give you a little recap of what happened 10 years ago.
Back in 1995 – 1997, Mrs. Lewinsky was working as an intern for the White House. During her time there, it was discovered that she was having an affair with the one and only Mr. Bill Clinton, who at that time was the President of the United States. After the affair was made public in January 1998, Preside Clinton faced an investigation that ended on him being impeached and later acquitted by the Senate. Ms. Lewinsky, on the other hand, amid the media buzz created by her infamous relationship with the President, and after some TV appearances, which brought her a great deal of cash into her bank account, decided to move to London to study social psychology.
Great story, huh! Well, if we thought that 10 years was enough time for people to forgive and forget and that we will never hear from the Lewinsky-Clinton scandal anymore; we though wrong. Apparently, Ms. Lewinsky had a different plan. The question many people are asking themselves is… why now?
If like me, you are asking yourself why is Monica getting the skeletons out of her closet after been hiding them in there for the past 10 years, continue reading. Below, I will share with you three (3) possible reasons for her wanting to dust off this famous scandal.
First Possible Reason: She needs people to start following her on twitter. If she is doing all this just to get some followers on twitter, I have to say… good for you Monica. I know how hard it is to get followers on twitter nowadays. Unless you are Justin Bieber or Rhianna, building a steady flow of followers could be a hard task to complete. I know because after years of having my twitter account, I only have 19 followers; and that’s not including my own daughter who “unfollowed” me not too long ago.
Second Possible Reason: She just ran out of money and needs to start getting royalties again from her story. This could be a big reason for her to come out of the woods and start brushing off people’s memories. Unfortunately, trashy scandal news sell more easily than regular boring news, and if she needs the money, what’s better than giving people what they like, especially if she is getting paid for it.
And, last but not least;
Third Possible Reason: Hillary Clinton is using her as a marketing agent to draw attention to herself. Without any doubt, this, at least in my opinion, is another great reason. Now that Mrs. Clinton is considering running for president, she may had recruited her former rival to help her out with some “undercover” propaganda. I have to admit; I got this one out of an interview I watched couple of days ago in which Lynne Cheney, wife of former Vice President Dickey Cheney told Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, who guest-hosted “The O’Reilly Factor” Tuesday night that she thought something was off because according to her, vanity affair would not publish anything about Monica Lewinski without Mrs. Clinton approving it first. Interesting theory, isn’t it?
There you have it, my friends. I may be way off here with these possible reasons but honestly, I had to give them a try. I am sure that soon, we will know what that real reason for her to start talking about this old news again is. But, for now; let’s have some fun with the whole issue and see if Monica gets to achieve whatever goal is that she is trying to achieve.
