Monica Lewinsky has done it.
Several years ago, when she was living at the Archive in Greenwich Village, she was fed up with her life.
"She lived on the tenth floor, right above me, and I asked her on a date," an attorney tells Radar exclusively. "We went to a neighborhood restaurant and it was hell. Everyone was looking at us, talking. I was very self-conscious. I couldn't imagine what she was feeling. I mean, she had to go through this every day of her life!"
Soon thereafter, the femme fatale of the Bill Clinton scandal moved to London. Cut to five years later. Now 35, Lewinsky has received her Master's from the London School of Economics -- having aced her thesis titled "In Search of the Impartial Juror: An Exploration of the Third Person Effect and Pre-Trial Publicity" -- and is considering a career in psychology.
Some of us aren't surprised. Despite her tearful phone calls to Linda Tripp, Monica was no bubble-head say many close to her.
As for Tripp, she's working in a craft store in Virginia called Christmas Sleigh.
