Gotta be honest, they’re doing Monica dirty with that casting.

Absolutely agree. Thought she nailed Marcia Clark but she's just about unwatchable in AHS, her screaming and crying us the worst of any actress I've ever seen.

Annaleigh Ashford has Paula's accent down pat

I can't believe the Clintons actually allowed this project to happen. I'm sure Ryan Murphy was a supporter so it's surprising he would do this in the first place and in the second place he may be in danger now

Historically Monica seems like the only human decent being out of the bunch

Linda Tripp was evil?

She was definitely on that side of the spectrum.

Because she came forward with evidence exposing a serial rapist?

I think the "evil" part is that she betrayed Lewinsky's confidence by secretly recording her and turning it over to the special prosecutor, throwing Monica under the bus and ruining her life.

No. Because she was a treacherous bitch who betrayed and manipulated the confidence of someone who thought she (Tripp) was a friend for personal gain.

Oh, BTW, Monica Lewinsky, aside from being a beautiful woman these days, is a great follow on Twitter. She has a great sense of humor and irony, and is not afraid to have a self-deprecating laugh at herself, even about the scandal.

Evidence that she compiled on the suggestion of her publisher in the hopes of a book deal. Which she only gave to Starr as leverage to gain immunity. She never advised the "rape" victim to go to the authorities. She advised her to maintain her relationship with "the rapist" and to document their relationship. Don't make it out that Tripp was doing anything but furthering her own interests from start to finish.

Well I'm sure Hollywood hates her for her part in helping to expose sexual predator Bill Clinton. But it was his own acts after the fact to cover it up, perjury to a grand jury and obstruction of justice, that led to his impeachment.

She claimed she did it to protect Lewinsky from the certainly toxic relationship. And judging by how many Clinton enemies ended up, perhaps it did. This is when the Paula Jones and/or Kathleen Willey stuff was gaining traction. While the affair was a secret or just a rumor it wouldn't have been news if Lewinsky disappeared. Once it was out in the open, she was essentially protected by it (as it would have been too obvious if she was killed). Or at least that's my recollection of it.

The friend on behalf of Clinton was pressuring her to commit perjury regarding the Kathleen Willey matter and had in fact submitted a false affidavit denying the relationship to the federal court in Arkansas in the Jones lawsuit. No clean hands there.

What personal gain was that?

Yeah, dead man walking. Edie Falco probably going to "commit suicide."

A book that was never written, and certainly could have made her a ton of money if that was the goal.

Tripp was certainly acting to protect herself for the most part and I believe Monica as well.

Of course it is. American Horror/Crime Story anthologies are all his baby.

Is that Monica Lewinsky on the left?

She’s got to be the only person involved in a sex scandal that looks better 20 years afterwards

Its also pretty rare for the person portraying another person in a movie is less attractive than the real life individual.

Definitely did her wrong... I can't think of another actress that would've been better but I'm sure there's one.
