Gennifer Flowers claims that Bill Clinton contacted her as recently as 2005. 

In an interview with ABC's New Orleans' affiliate WGNO earlier this week, Flowers claimed that Clinton, whose presidency has been filled with countless allegations of extramarital affairs, contacted her as recently as 2005, shortly after Flowers got a divorce. 

"I was at home by myself, and the phone rings, it said unavailable, and I picked up the phone and it was him...he wanted to come by my house and talk to me.... I said, No, you can't come over here, no way. And he said, I'll put on a hoodie and I'll jog up there. I said no... And that was it. That would have been 2005." Gennifer Flowers spoke to WGNO reporter Susan Roesgen.

In 1992, when Clinton was governor of Alabama and running for president against incumbent George H.W. Bush, Flowers dropped a bombshell: that she had been having a 12 year long affair with Clinton. Clinton denied the 12-year long affair, but did admit that he had slept with Flowers in 1977, while he was married to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (the two were married in 1975). 

This could just be another ploy from Flowers to gain some attention. ABC News writes that Flowers is preparing for a new TV show, a "Real Housewives"-esque reality TV program that will document the lives of seven women from New Orleans. This isn't the first time Clinton's name has come up since he left office in 2001. Earlier this year, Clinton was photographed with two porn stars in Monaco, which led to a media frenzy. During his presidency, Clinton was involved in one of the biggest scandals to ever hit the White House when it was reported that he was involved in an extra-marital affair with then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky. Clinton was actually impeached by the House of Representatives, a decision which was later overturned by the Senate, which let Clinton finish out his presidency. 

Clinton has tried to lead a quite post-presidential life, focusing on phillanthropy and, most recently, helping Barack Obama win a second term with his riviting speech at the 2012 Democratic National Convention.
