I’ll stand by the fact that Monica Lewinsky got a bad rap, even though she made some pretty serious mistakes. But it takes two to tango and because she was a woman, an intern, and had less power – she was bullied on a level that no one ever should have to endure.
Yes, she did things with a married man. I am not excusing that. But, I challenge anyone who says that they are not attracted to someone in a position of power.
That being said, one of the mistakes that Lewinsky made is her choice in friends. Linda Tripp betrayed her and the whole situation taught me something – don’t ever say shit you wouldn’t want repeated, because someone could record you. Now, sure, we all make the mistake of telling our secrets, but if anything, I really never talk about who I have slept with or had any type of sexual relations with. Not that it would make the news, but just saying – use it as a cautionary tale.
The trailer for American Crime Story: Impeachment has been released and it is a good one.
“As you no doubt heard, you get to work in the West Wing as of this morning,” a White House adviser says to the newest crop of interns entering the White House. “You’re going to be working beside the people who run the world. Please, be professional.”

“Impeachment: American Crime Story is a limited series examining the national crisis that led to the first impeachment of a U.S. President in over a century. It tells this story through the eyes of the women at the center of the events: Monica Lewinsky (Beanie Feldstein), Linda Tripp (Sarah Paulson) and Paula Jones (Annaleigh Ashford). All three were thrust into the public spotlight during a time of corrosive partisan rancor, shifting sexual politics and a changing media landscape. The series shows how power lifts some and disposes of others in the halls of our most sacred institutions.”
