Monica Lewinsky and her family hope to pay off some of their $2 million-plus legal bills by negotiating a paycheck from a British TV station for an on-camera interview. Meanwhile, according to the Associated Press, ABC's Barbara Walters is waiting in the wings for a chance to talk with the former White House intern -- for free, though, since major U.S. networks don't pay for such tete-a-tetes. Any deal may have to wait until after prosecutor Kenneth Starr testifies on Capitol Hill Thursday in the House impeachment inquiry of President Clinton. Starr's office must give its approval before Ms. Lewinsky can talk to the news media, since the no-talk provision is part of the former intern's immunity agreement with prosecutors.
