Monica Lewinsky of blue dress fame – who engaged in an adulterous relationship with President Bill Clinton while she interned at the White House – came out swinging against the online media, saying she was unfairly cast in an unduly dark light.
"I was branded as a tramp, tart, slut, whore, bimbo and, of course, 'that woman.' I was known by many but actually known by few," she said, while giving remarks at a global conference in Vancouver, Canada, the New York Post reported.

"I get it," she went on. "It was easy to forget 'that woman' was dimensional and had a soul. I admit I made mistakes ... but the attention and judgment that I received – not the story, but that I personally received – was unprecedented."
Lewinsky, 41, was in her early 20s when she "fell in love" with Clinton, she said.
"At the age of 22, I fell in love with my boss," she said, the newspaper reported. "At the age of 24, I learned the devastating consequences. When this happened to me, 17 years ago, there was no name for it. Now we call it cyberbullying."
