Former White House intern, Monica Lewinsky, has revealed what triggered her affair with former US president, Bill Clinton.
In an upcoming docuseries, titled, “The Clinton Affair,” where Lewinsky shared new details about her time in the White House, she said it was her exposed underwear that got the president’s attention back in 1995.
She said that, during a birthday party for a White House staffer, where Clinton was present, Lewinsky said she noticed that her underwear was unintentionally showing from behind but she decided to leave it be.
“Instead of pulling my trousers up, like I would in any other instance, I didn’t,” she recalled. “It was unnoticeable to everybody else in the room, but [Clinton] noticed.”
“As I passed George Stephanopoulos’ office, I kind of looked into the open doorway, and Bill happened to be standing there,” she went on. “And he motioned me in — I don’t think my heart had ever beat that fast. Unbeknownst to me, I was on the precipice of the rabbit hole.”
Lewinsky and Clinton indulged in an affair between 1995 and 1997. It came to limelight in 1998.
