Monica Lewinsky in a still from tonight’s Scandal Made Me Famous on REELZChannel

The affair between Monica Lewinsky and Bill Clinton is profiled in depth tonight on the premiere episode of REELZChannel’s Scandal Made Me Famous — with a string of new interviews about their relationship.

The then president admitted having had an “inappropriate relationship” with White House intern Lewinsky in 1995 and 1996.

Scandal Made Me Famous looks at what took place and the role of Lewinsky’s co-worker Linda Tripp, who made secret recordings of her phone calls with Lewinsky about her relationship with the president.

Tripp was also the person who convinced Lewinsky not to dry-clean the infamous “blue dress” which had a stain from Clinton’s semen on it after she performed fellatio on him.

Recordings of Lewinsky and Tripp’s phone calls are played out in tonight’s episode, alongside new conversations

Celebrity deaths, and the people who love how they died.

How many times have you literally said this to yourself?  “I’m not proud of myself, but I  really enjoy this.”  This could of course cover a whole myriad of scenarios and situations.  The internet alone would seem to have been invented so people could look at a whole bevy of things that should bring shame to anybody with any sense of self-respect.  The internet has brought us everything from a dog trying to hump a frying pan, to pictures of grizzly murder scenes.  People are drawn to these sites, and even through they know that what they’re doing isn’t exactly what they’d like people to record about them for posterity, they are nevertheless,  drawn to these less than savory pictures, stories, and videos just the same.

Before the advent of the internet, there was television.  When there were only three networks, you had a 33% chance of finding something that you

Monica Lewinsky Considered the Clinton Investigation a ‘Living Nightmare,’ Says Biographer

On July 27, 1998, a young woman named Monica Lewinsky finally agreed to speak with prosecutors about her sexual relationship with then-President Bill Clinton. That meeting would eventually lead to impeachment hearings against Clinton.

Lewinsky, then 25, had become the central figure in the biggest political scandal in modern American history. She was the punchline of late night comedians. Reporters camped out at her house. Even though the internet was still in its infancy, people dissected Lewinsky’s life on message boards and chat rooms.

Lewinsky was devastated by the attention, and went on to work with biographer Andrew Morton to tell her side of the scandal. Monica’s Story, first released in March 1999, went on to become an international bestseller.

In a rare interview, Morton speaks out about Lewinsky’s ordeal on Saturday’s episode of Scandal Made Me Famous on the Reelz Channel. He recalls the time
