Gennifer Flowers, Bill Clinton's Former Mistress, to Star in TV Reality Show
Gennifer Flowers, who claimed to have had a longterm affair with former U.S. President Bill Clinton, will star in a reality show presented based on the "Real Housewives" concept.
Flowers said in an interview with New Orleans TV channel WGNO that she is working in a sort of new pilot about the lives of seven ladies in New Orleans at which some point the cameras will get into the "bedroom," she said.
"I am always looking for romance," Flowers said in the interview. "And being the cougar that I am...is part of the show, it was my idea ..." she added.
In the same interview, Flowers claimed that former President Clinton contacted her as early as 2005 to see her but she said she told him to leave her alone.
"I picked up the phone and it was him," Flowers told WGNO's TV host Susan Roesgen. "And he wanted to come by my house and talk to me. ... I was taken aback. That was the last thing I expected."
"I said, 'No you can't come over here. He said, 'I'll put on a hoodie and I'll jog up there.' ... And I said, 'No, I want you to leave me alone.' And that was that, that should have been 2005," she said.
The interview was widely spread on the web after it aired on Nov. 26.
Reacting to the media storm that followed, Flowers said:
"Thanks for all the sweet messages in reference to the latest media storm over a little interview. I did here in New Orleans..go figure. I looked terrible in the interview cause Ihad been sick with the fly and my face and eyes were swollen and how about that horrible lighting???" the former model wrote on her Facebook page.
Flowers also said that she helped Clinton win the elections.
"I made him a household name overnight," Flowers said. "We had had that discussion. He said, 'My problem right now is that no one knows who I am. I need that name recognition.' He went on to talk about the other candidates and the advantages they had. When my story came out, he was a household name."
Flowers' TV reality show is being produced by EUE/Sokolow/Southwood and presented by Screen Gems, she announced on her Facebook.
