A record 74 million people saw Barbara Walters’ interview with Monica Lewinsky. “What will you tell your children, when you have them?” Walters asked. “Mommy made a big mistake,” Lewinsky replied. “You can say that again,” Walters said.
In an interview with Variety‘s Ramin Setoodeh, Walters noted the importance of the Lewinsky interview. “It’s the biggest interview I’ve ever done,” Walters said. “I’d like to interview Monica again. I think Monica’s story is very interesting, because everybody else has been able to move on. I’m touched by the fact that she hasn’t been able to.”
