Remember Monica Lewinsky, the White House intern who blew Bubba Clinton and then almost brought down his presidency by lying about the whole thing in a bungled effort to cover it up? Well, all these years later, she wants you all to know how much she regrets sucking off a president.

“It’s time to burn the beret and bury the blue dress,” Lewinsky writes in the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair. “I am determined to have a different ending to my story. I’ve decided, finally, to stick my head above the parapet so that I can take back my narrative and give a purpose to my past. (What this will cost me, I will soon find out.)…I, myself, deeply regret what happened between me and President Clinton. Let me say it again: I. Myself. Deeply. Regret. What. Happened.”

So why is Lewinsky finally taking about this? Earlier this year it was reported that she — after living life below the radar for years — was shopping a juicy tell-all autobiography to publishers. Perhaps this is the opening publicity push for such a thing?

Finally, she writes that “thanks to the Drudge Report, I was also possibly the first person whose global humiliation was driven by the Internet.” I’m not sure if that thought has ever occurred to me, but she’s probably right.
