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 in the dating scene letting them know they aren’t alone in their journey.
Monique arrived in LA almost two decades ago following a semester studying Shakespearean Theatre in London and completing her degree in Performing Arts from Hampton University. She realized after the end of her marriage that the creative spirit in her never died. She opened up her laptop and ‘Confessions’ was born, turning the pain of her divorce into a purpose.
Monique is currently the resident dating expert on NBC’s hit day time syndicated show, Access Live, NBC’s regional show California Live and Fox LA’s number one morning show Good Day LA. She has also been a guest on The Talk and has previously been featured in Essence Magazine, LA Confidential Magazine, and TV One. This 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 Monique facilitates a talk show style conversation and get together to talk candidly about dating & relationships.
Kelley’s first novel is coming out January 2021.
