(Newser) – Barbara Walters' 1999 interview with Monica Lewinsky reeled in the most viewers of any single news program ever—almost 50 million. Four years later, Lewinsky gave her last TV interview, until now. Lewinsky is about to return to the air, in an interview that was actually filmed in 2013, as part of the National Geographic Channel's three-part miniseries on the 1990s that begins its run on Sunday at 9pm. The Today show today aired a snippet.

Here's the line grabbing the most attention: "I was a virgin to humiliation of that level, until that day." Then later, "I was the most humiliated woman in the world." Today notes she also opens up about thoughts of suicide and whether she thinks Bill Clinton owes her an apology.

"Most embarrassed?" It was the getting caught. When she helped an older man ruin his career at her Portland college, she didn't get the publicity. When she pulled the same routine in a blue dress, we all had too much exposure to her. She needs help--like GET A LIFE and get off the stage.
