Meet Monique Kelley

MONIQUE KELLEY is the high-powered Hollywood player and blogger behind the popular site, Confessions Of A Serial Dater in LA. While she’s chronicled the trials & travails of her post-divorce dating life anonymously for the past two years, the Studio-Exec-by-day-blogger-by-night is ready to step out from behind her keyboard and reveal her true identity!

The Princeton, NJ native, who’s previously been featured by Essence Magazine, arrived in LA following a semester studying Shakespearean Theatre in London and completing her degree in Performing Arts from Hampton University. While her professional pursuits haven’t completely harnessed her creative side, Kelley realized after the end of her marriage that spirit in her never died. She opened up her laptop and ‘Confessions’ was born, turning the pain of her divorce into a purpose.

The Urban Socialite and ‘West Coast Carrie Bradshaw’ also produces a bi-annual event called Cocktails and Confessions. The ladies only gatherings held at Hollywood hot spots are a chance for Kelley’s personal database of female doctors, lawyers, NBA Wives, and industry influencers to get together and talk candidly about dating & relationships. Kelley recently signed with Carol Mann Literary Agency and is currently working on her first novel.

“…dating is truly a numbers game.  In order to meet your prince  you are unfortunately going to have to kiss a lot of frogs!”
