Former Miss Arkansas and local radio talk show host Perdue claimed that she had a four month affair with Clinton after they met in 1983. Perdue says that they had sex in her Little Rock apartment, where he called her "Long Tall Sally" while she sang, "He's Just My Bill."
Result: Posed in "Penthouse" for an estimated $50,000 -- and, the ultimate white trash reward -- she appeared on the Sally Jesse Raphael show.

Perdue said State troopers regularly brought Clinton to her condominium at Andover Square. "They'd pull up in a wooded area about thirty feet from the house and wait there," she recalled. She revealed Clinton's typical routine: he'd drink a few Budweiser beers, and then Clinton would begin to loosen up. She described him as a "showman" and a "brilliant actor," who craved approval and needed the constant approval of women. "He had this little boy quality that I found very attractive," Perdue said. Clinton would flick a patio light to summon the police car when he was leaving.
In 1992, when Perdue tried to air details of her alleged affair, she sat through a three-and-a-half hour meeting at the Chesire Inn in Clayton,Missouri, on August 19, 1992, with a man claiming to represent the DemocraticParty. His name was Ron Tucker. "He said that there were people in high places who were anxious about me andthey wanted me to know that keeping my mouth shut would be worthwhile . . . If Iwas a good little girl, and didn't kill the messenger, I'd be set for life: a federal job,nothing fancy but a regular paycheck, Level 11 or 12 ($60,000 a year). I'd neverhave to worry again."
"But if I didn't take the offer, then they knew that I went jogging by myself and hecouldn't guarantee what would happen to my pretty little legs. Things just wouldn'tbe so much fun for me anymore. Life would get hard." (A work colleague of Perdue's, Denison Diel, had positioned himself at the bar nearby and heard all of the alleged conversation. Diel wrote a report that was submitted on the FBI.)
Perdue did not heed Tucker's warnings, nor did she take the job offer. Then she lost her job, began receiving threatening mail and calls (one letter read: "I'll pray you have a head-on collision and end up in a coma. . . Marilyn Monroe got snuffed"), found an unspent shotgun cartridge on the driver's seat of her Jeep, and the back window of her vehicle shattered.
Despite this, Perdue has gotten little support in the media: "I've had it with the American press . . . The powers here are strong. You know, they've protected Bill Clinton in a way they'd never protected anybody in the history of America," she said.
"When I see him now, President of the United States, meeting world leaders, I can't believe it . . . I still have this picture of him wearing my black nightgown,playing the sax badly; this guy, tiptoeing across the park and getting caught on the fence. How do you expect me to take him seriously?"
