Monica Lewinsky, the former White House intern who recently resurfaced on the scene by penning an essay for Vanity Fair, has now agreed to be interviewed. However, if you’re thinking along the lines of Barbara Walters coming out of retirement or some sort of “20/20” special, think again. Months before her retirement, Walters did mention she would like to interview Lewinsky one more time.
Lewinsky will be among 120 participants who will be interviewed for a National Geographic special called “The 90s: The Last Great Decade?” The three-part mini-series is slated to debut July and will broadcast stories of those who had brushes with fame. The series will be narrated by Rob Lowe and feature other well-known people such as Tony Blair, Colin Powell, Newt Gingrich and Rudy Giuliani.
The 40-year-old Lewinsky’s first interview was in 1999 with Barbara Walters where she discussed her affair with then President Bill Clinton. Her last was in 2003.
