Hillary Clinton admits that staying in her marriage was the “bravest” thing she ever did.
Hillary Clinton has stated that her decision to support her husband, former President Bill Clinton, following revelations that he had affairs with several women, including White House intern Monica Lewinsky, is not “for everyone.”
In a recent interview, Clinton, the former secretary of state and two-time Democratic presidential candidate, was asked about her marriage.
“You have a marriage that has been on public display since the beginning,” said Rev. Whittney Ijanaten, a UCLA Health chaplain who officiates LGBTQ weddings. “You said staying in your marriage was the bravest thing you’d ever done.”
“That doesn’t mean it’s right for everyone,” Clinton, 74, responded, nodding her head yes.
The interview was part of a teaser released on Tuesday to promote “Gutsy,” a show that will premiere on Apple TV+ on September 9 and is executive produced by Hillary Clinton and her daughter Chelsea.
It is a sequel to “The Book of Gutsy Women,” which the mother and daughter co-wrote in 2019.
The book’s theme will be continued in the eight-part docuseries, which will feature interviews with female celebrities, performers, community leaders, and newsmakers.
Goldie Hawn, Kim Kardashian, Megan Thee Stallion, Wanda Sykes, and anthropologist Dr. Jane Goodall are among the guests.
For nearly three decades, Hillary Clinton’s career has been dogged by Bill Clinton’s affairs and allegations that he sexually assaulted a number of women.
When Republican Donald Trump attempted to bring several of Bill Clinton’s accusers to a debate during Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, the former president’s indiscretions resurfaced dramatically.
Lewinsky, then a 22-year-old White House intern, began an affair with President Bill Clinton in 1995.
Clinton’s sexual relationship, which he denied existed, led to his impeachment by the House in 1998 for lying under oath and obstructing justice.
In February 1999, the 42nd President was acquitted following a Senate trial.
