Monica Lewinsky has revealed that she wore her infamous stained dress to a dinner party after her widely-discussed hook-up with President Bill Clinton – and nobody told her.
In a new TV series on American network A&E, called The Clinton Affair, Monica says no one spotted the tell-tale stain on her dress that would have proved something had gone down.
She says: "I went to dinner that night. None of these people said to me, ‘Hey, you’ve go to go to the bathroom, you’ve got stuff all over your dress’."
Monica also went into detail about exactly how that stain got on her dress and how her relationship with the now-former President carried on in 1997, after he won re-election.
She also opens up about Clinton inviting her to a White House radio address.
She says: "He said he had a present for me. I didn’t quite know – would I get to see him alone? Wouldn’t I?
"As I went through to shake his hand after and take a picture with him, he said,’Oh, go see Betty, she has something for you’."
Clinton was referring to his personal secretary Betty Currie, who sat on a desk right outside the Oval Office.
Monica continued: "She brought me into the Oval Office and all three of us went into the back study, and she went into the dining room to hide there.
"Because the illusion to everyone else was that I was not alone with him."
She said Clinton gave her a box with a hat pin in it, because "’You always look so cute in hats’, or ‘You and your hats’, or something like that," Monica said.
He also gifted her a copy of Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman.
Monica described the book as "intimate" and said it was a "meaningful present" that you "don’t give lightly".
She added: "Whatever had been nagging in me – is what I’m feeling real? Is that there? Whatever those insecurities were, they kind of vanished in some way with him giving me this gift."
She also said that was the first time she’d been together with the President after she was "banished" from the Pentagon, believing she was kept away so she wouldn’t affect the 1996 election.
Monica then went on to explain how the stain on her dress came about.
She said: "And so we moved to the bathroom and were more intimate. There was some attention paid on me and then I was reciprocating, where up until that point he had always stopped before completion on his part.
"I sort of stood up and said I wanted to move past that stage and so he finally said OK."
Monica didn’t notice her dress had been soiled, and hugged the President goodbye before heading off.
She didn’t notice the stain on her blue Gap dress until she pulled it out for Thanksgiving.
* The Clinton Affair, a six-part series, airs on A&E from Sunday, November 18
