In what will undoubtedly be the must-see TV of the week, Monica Lewinsky talks to ABC’s Barbara Walters about her terror of Ken Starr, her depression as her relationship with Bill Clinton fell apart, and that cigar. Walters’s interview, which airs Wednesday at 9 p.m., was taped in New York on Feb. 20. Walters describes the former White House intern, now 25, as energetic and articulate–qualities Lewinsky says were attractive to Clinton.

Their relationship was an emotional roller coaster for Lewinsky, and she became depressed as the affair disintegrated; her emotional state was extremely fragile by the time Starr’s prosecutors found her, Walters says. Starr’s people pushed her over the top, Walters says, and made her feel quite desperate. Lewinsky also tells Walters that her mother, Marcia Lewis, tried very hard to get her to break up the relationship. But Lewinsky admits to Walters that her own stubbornness kept her from heeding her mother’s advice.
