MONICA LEWINSKY – $1.5 MILLION
Monica Lewinsky rose to prominence when she got linked to a former high-ranking politician in the United States. However, after the widespread issue, she managed to gather herself and stand on her own two feet again. She became an author, public speaker, and anti-bullying activist, amassing her a net worth of $1.5 million. In 1999, Lewinsky collaborated with Andrew Morton to publish her book, Monica’s Story, which reportedly earned $500,000.
Monica has also given credit to knitting for helping her cope with all the issues she’s been through that gave birth to her handbag line, The Real Monica, Inc. Through Monica’s hard work, her handbag line made it into the shelves of Fred Segal and Henri Bendel. As a writer, she later became a regular contributor to Vanity Fair. Nowadays, Monica Lewinsky spends most of her time speaking and advocating for issues like bullying. She does so by remaining active on social media, particularly Twitter.
