IT'S been over two decades since Monica Lewinsky and Bill Clinton's infamous affair.
Many have wondered about Lewinsky's personal life since the scandal broke.
Is Monica Lewinsky married?
It is not believed that Lewinsky is married.
She is very keen on not discussing her love life, reiterating to People back in 2015: “You can ask it, but I keep my personal life private.
“I think people have known enough about my romantic life for a lifetime.”
She reportedly does not have any children either.
How old was Monica Lewinsky when she had an affair with Bill Clinton?
Lewinsky's relationship with Clinton was kept unwraps and reportedly lasted about two years.
She was 21 years old at the time of the affair.
News of Clinton and Lewinsky's relationship broke in January 1998.
On January 26, 1998, Clinton stated: "I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky," in a nationally televised White House news conference.
The matter instantly occupied the news media, and Lewinsky spent the next weeks hiding from public attention in her mother's residence at the Watergate complex.
Clinton had also said, "There is not a sexual relationship, an improper sexual relationship or any other kind of improper relationship," which he defended as truthful in August 1998.
Evidence of Clinton and Lewinsky's sexual encounters was obtained by Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr.
He reportedly got a hold of a blue dress from Lewinsky with Clinton's semen stained on it and testimony from her that the president had inserted a cigar into her vagina.
Clinton and Lewinsky were eventually called before a grand jury; he testified via closed-circuit television, she in person.
In her testimony, Lewinsky stated that she had nine sexual encounters in the Oval Office with Clinton between November 1995 and March 1997.
She stated that the encounters involved fellatio and other sexual acts, but not sexual intercourse.
She was granted transactional immunity by the Office of the Independent Counsel in exchange for her testimony.
Clinton's impeachment trial eventually began on January 7, 1999, and on February 12, 1999, the Senate acquitted Clinton on charges of perjury to a grand jury and obstruction of justice.
Where is Monica Lewinsky now?
Monica Lewinsky, 48, has been working as a producer on Ryan Murphy’s forthcoming TV series on Clinton’s impeachment.
The series is set to premiere on September 7, 2021, at 10pm on FX.
The anthology series will feature 10 episodes, with the finale reportedly ending on November 9.
The drama centers around her affair and scandal with President Clinton during the 1990s, with her recounting the events of their relationship.
Her character will be played by actress Beanie Feldstein in the series.
Lewinsky spoke to Vanity Fair on August 6, 2021, about the series, saying: “People have been co-opting and telling my part in this story for decades.
“In fact, it wasn’t until the past few years that I’ve been fully able to reclaim my narrative.”
Additionally, she participated in a question and answer segment with Vanity Fair and revealed that her "greatest regret" in life is “that some of my choices have caused others suffering," Lewinsky said.
Lewinsky is one of the producers of the FX drama and won't even give herself a pass when it comes to her infamous thong flash.
While this was something that actually happened, writer Sarah Burgess revealed in an interview with THR that she originally kept the scene out of the script for fear of "re-traumatizing Monica," however, Lewinsky was the one who called for the scene to be included.
