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 came to prominence after 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. She attended Bel-Air Prep in her senior year and after graduating attended Lewis and Clark College, where she received a degree in psychology. After graduating, Lewinsky became a White House intern. Between 1995 and 1997, she had several sexual encounters with Clinton, which she later admitted to a grand jury.
Things came to a head when Lewinsky was transferred to the Pentagon. While there, she confided in a colleague named Linda Tripp about her relationship with Clinton. Shocked by the revelation, Tripp secretly recorded their conversations and later convinced Monica to salvage any gifts Clinton had given her. The recordings of the Clinton-Lewinsky conversations and the gifts were given to Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr. News of the Clinton-Lewinsky affair broke in 1998. Clinton famously said, “I have not had a sexual relationship with this woman, Miss Lewinsky.” However, Starr then revealed that he owned an infamous blue dress that contained the President’s seed. Clinton confessed to the affair soon after.
Since the Lewinsky scandal, Monica has become something of a celebrity, appearing on Saturday Night Live, the Tom Green show, and doing countless interviews about the affair. Monica was paid $1 million for endorsement of Jenny Craig in TV commercials. Lewinsky partnered 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 and sold a collection of handbags under her name. Despite moderate success, Lewinsky did not continue the handbag line. Tired of US media attention, Lewinsky moved to London in 2005. The following year she graduated from the London School of Economics with a Masters in Social Psychology.
