OPINION: This article contains commentary which reflects the author’s opinion
Monica Lewinsky is breaking her silence in a new Hollywood production that will doom Bill and Hillary Clinton to the dustbin of history. Monica has told her story in various formats but nothing has the power to shape public opinion than to have your story, or your version of it with you as the hero, appear on screen.
And that is what Monica is set to do with FX’s new show, ‘Impeachment: American Crime Story.’ Executive producer Sarah Burgess confirmed that Lewinsky was a consultant on the project and this was her version of events.
Burgess said: “There is just no experience comparable to that. I always felt it important and very clear that we would work with her and speak to her about every script page it feels like in 1998 our culture sort of created a second Monica Lewinsky that doesn’t bear any relationship to the real person.
“So, I think for me and for Monica, the understanding that a real human arrived in Washington and went through these experiences, understanding the pressures that she was under.
“The surreal experience she was in, in this affair with the President, and then everything that she went through as the story came out.
“I mean, really, I’m still shocked when I’m on LexisNexis the way our culture responded to things, like a very vulnerable Barbara Walters interview.
“The talk about hostility, the sort of dismissiveness, the assumption that she wasn’t smart.
“All of that was always very important to me to bring forward, and I think to Monica as well.”
Beanie Feldstein, who plays Lewinsky in the show said:
“I knew that every word that I was saying was approved and had been to Monica first.
“She would give all her feedback and notes.
“And by the time it got to me, I was sure that everything in there was something that she felt comfortable with, she felt was real to her life and felt represented her.”
The show debuts on September 7 and stars Sarah Paulson as Linda Tripp, Annaleigh Ashford as Paula Jones, Clive Owen as Bill Clinton, and Edie Falco as Hillary Clinton.
The Clinton Family expresses its appreciation to the Biden Family for taking over the No 1 spot for the “Most Deplorable First Family Ever”.
