Monique Kelley Biography

Monique Kelley is a TV host, national dating expert, novelist, former studio executive, and motivational women's empowerment speaker. She is the host of "Married at First Sight: Cast Tell All" and "Decision Day Dish" specials on Lifetime TV; guest co-host on E! News shows "Daily Pop" and "Nightly Pop;" and author of the novel "Reality in Chaos."

Kelley has appeared as an expert dating correspondent for "The Real," "Good Day LA," "Good Day DC," "Good Morning Arizona," "Daily Blast Live," and various regional morning shows across the country. She has also been a guest on "The Talk," "The Jennifer Hudson Show," "The Tamron Hall Show," "The Wendy Williams Show," "Access Live," and other programming on MSNBC, Fox Soul, TV One, The Black News Channel, and even internationally on Cape Town based TV Channel eTV News. Kelley has been featured in publications such as Essence Magazine, LA Confidential Magazine, and VOIR, and is a regular guest on multiple podcasts and radio shows.

Kelley has made a name for herself as a go-to dating expert with her authentic, non-judgmental, lighthearted, and passionate dating advice. This socialite and ‘West Coast Carrie Bradshaw’ is the creator of "Cocktails and Confessions," a talk show style event held at Hollywood hotspots to talk candidly about dating and relationships.

Feeling the urge to give a voice to her relentless creative spirit, Kelley's journey into her new career began after the end of her short-lived marriage. She initially chronicled the trials of her post-divorce dating life anonymously as the mastermind and blogger behind her popular site, "Confessions Of A Serial Dater in LA." Turning the pain of her divorce into a purpose, she eventually stepped out from behind the keyboard and revealed her identity to her huge following, creating a phenomenon among single ladies.

A former studio executive by day and blogger by night, turned On-Air TV personality and successful author, Kelley found her passion giving voice to women in the dating scene and letting them know they are not alone in their journey. Kelley earned a BA in Theatre Arts from Hampton University and studied Shakespearean Theatre during a semester abroad at the University of London. Her debut novel "Reality in Chaos" is currently being optioned.
