A slew of items belonging to Bill Clinton’s former lover are set to sell between $25,000-$50,000! Would you pay thousands of dollars for Monica’s personal belongings?
Monica Lewinsky became a household name after the former White House intern’s affair with President Bill Clinton became a national scandal. While the 39-year-old has managed to remain out of the spotlight in recent years, her scandal has produced some interesting auction items, and now YOU can own a negligee that once belonged to Monica — but would you pay $50,000 for it?
Monica Lewinsky’s Nightgown For Auction:
The slew of items, (which also includes a letter signed by Bill), were offered up as evidence by Monica’s other hook up, Andy Bleiler. So, who is this Andy Bleiler guy and how did he get his hands on all of this stuff? Well, a source says that Bleiler was Monica Lewinsky’s former high school teacher, with whom she became extremely close to throughout the ’90s. Monica formed a sexual and scandalous relationship with Bleiler in private, but the dirty details of their relationship surfaced when Clinton was accused of perjury and obstruction of justice charges. It’s not quite clear how the articles of clothing helped in the trial, however, Bleiler gave all things Lewinsky-related to authorities to move the case along, which aided in the prosecution and impeachment of Clinton by the House of Representatives on perjury and obstruction of justice charges.
What’s Being Auctioned Off:
Though we are bummed to hear that the infamous Monica Lewinsky “Blue Dress” is not included in the lot, a black, floor-length, see-through City Culture negligee, in a size 1X-2X, IS up for bid!
Other items include:
• A Size Large, black jacket with beige embroidery by Opera Brand
• A Size Large navy blue velour DKNY hooded jacket
• A navy blue DKNY pants in size 12
• A Size XL green silk blouse by Kikit
• A blue denim jacket by American Rag in size 44 (US size 14)
• A Size Large plum blazer by David Dart
• A Size Large light yellow linen jacket by Ann Taylor
These items might be a little wrinkly, but they in fine condition and clearly tell an infamous story. The current bid is $6,500, but these historically-chic articles of clothing, along with stationary, letters, White House M&Ms, and other goodies are expected to go between $25,000 and $50,000. The auction ends on Thursday, so if you’re interested, START BIDDING!
What do you think? Do you think it’s worth it to bid on the items?
