Monica Lewinsky net worth: Monica Lewinsky is an American author, public speaker and anti-bullying activist who has a net worth of $1.5 million. Monica Lewinsky first achieved notoriety after having a very public scandal involving former president Bill Clinton. Lewinsky comes from an upper class Los Angeles family. She attended elementary school in Bel-Air and then Beverley Hills High school. In her senior year, she went to Bel-Air Prep and upon graduation attended Lewis and Clark College where she graduated with a psychology degree. After her graduation, Lewinsky became a White House intern. Between 1995 and 1997, she had several sexual encounters with Clinton, which she later admitted before a grand jury.
Things came to a head when Lewinsky was moved to the Pentagon. There she confided in a colleague named Linda Tripp about her relationship with Clinton. Shocked by the revelation, Tripp secretly taped their conversations and later convinced Monica to save any gifts given to her by Clinton. The recordings of the conversations between Clinton and Lewinsky plus the gifts were handed over to Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr. The news of Clinton/Lewinsky's affair broke out in 1998. Clinton famously said: "I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky". However, Starr then revealed that he possessed an infamous blue dress that contained the President's semen. Clinton soon confessed to the affair.
Since the Lewinsky scandal, Monica has become somewhat of a celebrity, appearing on Saturday Night Live, The Tom Green show, as well as countless interviews concerning the affair. Monica was paid $1 million endorse Jenny Craig in TV commercials. Lewinsky teamed with author Andrew Morton to publish the book Monica's Story in 1999. Her book advance was reportedly $500,000. She also became a fashion designer, selling a collection of handbags under her name. Despite moderate success, Lewinsky did not continue with the handbag line. Growing tired of the US media attention, Lewinsky moved to London in 2005. The following year, she graduated with a masters in social psychology at London School of Economics. More recently she has become a prominent proponent of the #metoo scandal and anti-bullying advocate.
