(Newser) – Sadly, no, Monica Lewinsky's upcoming book will not be about her foray into the world of handbags. Shockingly, it will instead focus on her affair with Bill Clinton, at least according to the National Enquirer. "For years, Monica tried to protect Bill out of a misplaced sense of loyalty," says a close friend. "But she no longer feels that way, and her memoir is his worst nightmare." Some rumored details from the tell-all, for which she will reportedly be paid $12 million:

  • Lewinsky, 39, will include love letters from Clinton and will reveal his tendency to call wife Hillary a "cold fish" and complain about their "non-existent sex life."
  • "She tells how Bill went on and on about his insatiable desire for three-way sex, orgies" and loved "sex toys of all kinds."
  • She's publishing the book because she wants revenge. "When Bill published his autobiography My Life … Monica felt betrayed by him all over again," says a source.
"Monica has tried to move forward, but the nightmare of her affair with Bill still haunts her," the friend says. "She’s facing 40 without a man in her life, and seething about the way her reputation was destroyed as the whole world watched." Another friend tells the New York Post, "No one will hire her and she can’t get a job because of Clinton. She needs to make money somehow." (Read more Monica Lewinsky stories.)
