Gennifer Flowers says she and Bill Clinton would still be together if Mrs. Clinton had not become pregnant with daughter Chelsea. She also told the MailOnline in an exclusive interview that he confided in her that his wife was bisexual.
After being silent for over 20 years, Flowers said she has no regrets and believes that, in different circumstances, she and Mr. Clinton would still be together. Mr. Clinton was “the love of her life”, she said.
During Clinton’s1992 presidential campaign, Flowers’ claimed to have been his mistress for 12 years. However, Hillary made a show of being the supportive wife and appeared beside Bill on a 60 Minutes interview days later when he denied the affair.
“Bill and I would be together today if it wasn’t for politics. It was me, Billy and Hillary. Then they had Chelsea and the stakes got too high,” Flowers said in the interview.
Flowers confirmed that Mr. Clinton had confided in her that Hillary was, in fact, bisexual, “I just know what Bill told me and that was that he was aware that Hillary was bisexual and he didn’t care. He should know,” she said.
Indeed, there were a number of reports in the media in May this year that Hillary would admit her bisexuality in her forthcoming book, due to be published in 2014.
Mr. Clinton admitted to having sex with Flowers “one time” in the 1970s during a deposition in the Paula Jones case. Jones was suing him for sexual harassment.
And, of course, who can forget that he was impeached as president after lying under oath about his affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky – then aged 22. Flowers said she believes Mrs. Clinton stuck by her husband simply because she wants to be President. She added, ironically, that she would vote for her if she decided to go for the post.
Flowers says that, if her affair with Bill had occurred today, there would have been an SMS and email trail that would have made it impossible for him to deny their relationship.
“I had recorded telephone conversations thank God. But If I hadn’t had them and Monica hadn’t had that blue dress we would have been cast out as crazy stalkers. I think today Bill and I would have texted every opportunity we got. So I would have had tons of texts from him.”
She says that Bill Clinton contacted her unexpectedly eight years ago, but she responded negatively. It was the first time she’d heard from him in 13 years, and she now regrets that she didn’t reply differently.
“We have some unresolved issues that it would be nice to sit down and talk about now,” she said.
“He was the love of my life and I was the love of his life and you don’t get over these things.”
