Monica Lewinsky: Our affair started after Bill Clinton saw my underwear

Monica Lewinsky shares intimate details of affair with Bill Clinton in Documentary Series | BellaNaija

She also opened up on the grief and fear she felt when she was told that she would have to cooperate with the FBI investigation of Clinton, or face time in prison.

"I did this really silly thing, I ran home at lunchtime, and I put back on the sage green suit I had been wearing the day before when he paid attention to me, and I thought, 'Well maybe he'll notice me again.' And notice me, he did", she said in a new A&E series "The Clinton Affair".

Now in the #MeToo era, she added: 'He was my boss.

"At first she tried to look away, but the woman kept staring as if taking in a circus act; even as Monica reddened and fidgeted, she wouldn't stop", wrote Vanessa Grigoriadis in NY magazine.

It hasn't been easy staying strong in the public glare though; Lewinsky toned down her appearances when Hillary Clinton announced she was running for president in April 2015. "He was the most powerful man on the planet ..."

'But I think in one way the moment we were actually in the back office for the first time the truth is I think it meant more to me the someone who other people desired, desired me'.

A year after she started her column, the first one in which she expressed how the Clinton scandal ruined her life, her TED talk on The Price of Shame went viral.

The six-part documentary reveals that private meetings between her and Clinton were arranged so as not to arouse suspicion.

'She [has] decided, I think.to just take charge of her own timetable.'

"Bill gave me this box which had a hat pin and he said, 'Because you know, you always look so cute in hats, '" remembers Lewinsky.

Lewinsky recalls the gifts she received from Clinton and the impact they had on her.

Yet in May of this year, Lewinsky lashed out on Twitter after being disinvited from the Town & Country Philanthropy Summit - after Bill Clinton agreed to speak at the event. "He paid a lot of attention to me, he spent time, held my hand for longer than he should have", Lewinsky says in "The Clinton Affair".

The narrative includes embracing a more visible life in Manhattan, where Lewinsky hobnobs with friends, including Alan Cumming. On her birthday, July 23, she belted out "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" at the actor's downtown boite, Club Cumming.

Afterward, the crowd serenaded her with a round of "Happy Birthday".

The source said Lewinsky keeps her friend group tight, goes to the theater, knits, and is a voracious reader.

In previous clips from the docuseries, Lewinsky - who was just one of 50 people interviewed for the six-part series, which debuts Sunday - also talked about her first impression of Clinton ("an old guy with wiry hair") but said she was quickly taken by his charisma. "He would be a better man for it", Lewinsky wrote.
