Paula Jones Pal Talks With Agent

Sun., Oct. 26, 1997

Paula Jones, President Clinton’s accuser in a sexual harassment lawsuit, is being advised to keep the door open to future book and movie deals, her spokeswoman said Saturday.

Susan Carpenter McMillan, a Los Angeles public-relations expert who also counts herself as Jones’ friend, said she had a preliminary conversation with literary agent Judith Reagan after advising Jones that she would be wise not to foreclose any option.

Jones did not sanction any contact with an agent and knew nothing about the conversation with Reagan, McMillan said.

“I do talk and I will continue to talk to literary agents and movie people all the time. I’d be stupid not to,” she said.

Jones has denied repeatedly any interest in writing a book or screenplay about her alleged hotel-room encounter with Clinton while he was governor of Arkansas, but McMillan said she offered her friend this advice: “You don’t know what you’re going to do down the road. You have to keep doors open.”
