Their 12-year affair made Gennifer Flowers one of the most high profile mistresses in America. Now, two decades after they split amid scandal, the former news reporter from Little Rock, Arkansas wants to ‘sit down and talk’ with Bill Clinton.
In an exclusive interview with MailOnline, Gennifer has spoken of her deep regret at turning down Clinton’s pleas to talk some eight years ago and revealed her belief that they would still be together today, were it not the birth of Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea.
She said: ‘We have some unresolved issues that it would be nice to sit down and talk about now. He was the love of my life and I was thelove of his life and you don’t get over those things.’
Clinton, now 67, also shared a lot of intimacies regarding his marriage to Hillary.
They left Gennifer in no doubt that the union is far from ‘traditional.’
She said: ‘What they have is very strong.
‘It obviouslyworked for them but I’ve never considered theirs a traditional marriage.’
When rumours surfaced recently of an affairbetween Hillary Clinton and her transition office chief, Huma Abedin, 37, Gennifer was not surprised.
The rumours concerning Huma, wife ofdisgraced former Mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, 49, emerged as she stood by her husband in the wake of his recent ‘sexting’ scandal.
Revelations that he had sent intimate pictures of himself and steamymessages to 23-year-old Sydney Leathers – a girl he had only ever ‘met’ online – finally did for his New York Mayoral campaign last week.
The scandal broke almost exactly a year after the shamedcongressman suffered a public mauling for the same behaviour. Then, asrecently, his wife Huma Abedin stood by him.
This time round Huma’s loyalty raised eyebrows and questionsover why a woman of such accomplishment would stick by a man so apparentlyincapable of change.
Gennifer said: ‘I don’t know Huma or the Weiners. I justknow what Bill told me and that was that he was aware that Hillary was bisexualand he didn’t care. He should know.
‘He said Hillary had eaten more p***y than he had.’
