Meet Monique Kelley

MONIQUE KELLEY is the high-powered Hollywood player and blogger behind the popular site, Confessions Of A Serial Dater in LA. She initially chronicled the trials & travails of her post-divorce dating life anonymously until she stepped out from behind the keyboard and revealed her identity to her huge following, creating a phenomenon among single ladies in LA.  This Studio-Exec-by-day-blogger-by-night found her passion and gives the voice to many women on the dating scene letting them know they aren’t alone in their journey.

The Princeton, NJ native, who’s previously been featured by Essence Magazine, TV One, and The Trend LA 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.  These gatherings are held at Hollywood hot spots where Kelley’s personal database of female doctors, lawyers, NBA Wives, industry influencers, and loyal followers get together and talk candidly about dating & relationships.  Kelley is 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!”
