Monica Lewinsky:

(The Today Show) Nearly two decades after becoming the nation's most famous White House intern, Monica Lewinsky opens up in an upcoming Vanity Fair essay about how difficult it’s been to move on past her well-known scandal.

“It’s time to burn the beret and bury the blue dress,” the now-40-year-old writes about her affair with then sitting-President Bill Clinton.

Yet, she has found it harder than expected to bury her tainted past, TODAY anchors noted Wednesday. 

In her essay, Lewinsky expresses deep regret for her affair with Clinton, while insisting the relationship was between two consenting adults. But she also describes the long-lasting impact the scandal has had on her life, specifically, her ability to prove to potential employers that she won’t be a liability because of her name recognition.
