"I, myself, deeply regret what happened between me and President Clinton. Let me say it again: I. Myself. Deeply. Regret. What. Happened," the 40-year-old says in the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair.
Lewinsky breaks the silence about the much-talked-about affair maintaining, however, that the relationship in the 1990s was one between two consenting adults.
"Sure, my boss took advantage of me, but I will always remain firm on this point: it was a consensual relationship. Any 'abuse' came in the aftermath, when I was made a scapegoat in order to protect his powerful position," Lewinsky writes.
Lewinsky began the affair with Clinton while interning in White House. The ensuing scandals lead to the Democratic President's impeachment by the Republican-led House.
Lewinsky has stayed virtually silent about the affair and the buzz helmed by it over the past decade. She writes in the Vanity Fair article that "the buzz in some circles has been that the Clintons must have paid me off; why else would I have refrained from speaking out? I can assure you that nothing could be further from the truth."
She adds that it's time to stop "tiptoeing around my past - and other people's futures. I am determined to have a different ending to my story. I've decided, finally, to sick my head about the parapet so that I can take back my narrative and give a purpose to my past. (What this will cost me, I will soon find out.)"
She also took an opportunity to correct Beyonce's "Partition" Lyrics: "Thanks, Beyonce, but if we're verbing, I think you meant 'Bill Clinton'd all on my gown,' not 'Monica Lewinsky'd,'" she said.
The story has been creating quite a buzz in the social media with many people picking all the funnier side to it.
Here are some of the funniest takes on the story from Twitter users:
