Overnight Briefing & General Reality Check - May 7, 2014
May 7, 2014
MONICA LEWINSKY is the subject of a story in the upcoming June issue of Vanity Fair magazine, where she talks about her escapades with former President BILL CLINTON. Discussing the aftermath of her little fling with Bubba, she said, "I remained virtually reclusive, despite being inundated with press requests. I put off announcing several media projects in 2012 until after the election ...And recently I've found myself gun-shy yet again, fearful of 'becoming an issue' should (HILLARY CLINTON) decide to ramp up her campaign. But should I put my life on hold for another 8 to 10 years?"
Insisting that the Clintons didn't "pay her off" to remain silent, she adds, "I am determined to have a different ending to my story. I've decided, finally, to stick my head above 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.) ...It's time to burn the beret and bury the blue dress." (Pacelli)
Editor's note: Got news for ya, Monica: The rest of the country forgot about the beret and blue dress 10 years ago. (Maiman)
The Reel Deal:
JESSICA ALBA won't do a nude scene in any movie.
She tells Glamour magazine in the upcoming June issue (out next week) it's because "I don't want my grandparents to see my boobs. That's it. It would be weird at Christmas. And, I mean, really, if you look at the movies I have done, getting naked would never 'elevate' the picture."
"The Simpsons" are getting their own MAC Cosmetics line! In celebration of the show's 25th anniversary the makeup brand is releasing a limited edition color collection that will center around the cartoon family's blue-haired matriarch, Marge. Fashionista.com says there are no other hard details on the collection yet. But this is Marge! It's a pretty good bet that highly pigmented blues, yellows, reds, greens and white, and maybe mascara will be part of the line to help us all achieve Marge Simpson's signature fanned-out, four-lash look.

Off the beaten path:
Need a job this summer? Switzerland is hiring a hermit.
The job opening at the Verena Gorge natural monument requires the employee to live alone in a cavern. A spokesperson says, "The cave is a protected monument and a valuable part of the region's cultural heritage. The job of hermit is an important one." There's a strange catch, though: applicants should enjoy meeting people and giving presentations. The hermit will be expected to greet visitors and teach them meditation. (Still)
