This Fall, GRAMMY(R) Award-Winning Artist Monica Makes Her Reality Debut With New Series ‘MONICA’ on Tuesday, October 27, at 10:00 p.m.*

On Tuesday, October 27, at 10:00 p.m.* BET premieres MONICA, a new eight-episode series that follows R&B singer Monica as she works on her fifth album, launches a new clothing line and tackles the hardest job of all – full-time mother of two young sons. After a brief hiatus from the music industry, does Monica have what it takes to handle it all? You be the judge on Tuesday, October 27.

 

Monica is back in the spotlight with an intimate, behind-the-scenes view into her day-to-day world. This reality show will not only chronicle her personal life, but will take viewers along her journey as she works on her highly anticipated fifth studio album, appropriately titled Still Standing. The series will also highlight her efforts as she designs a high-end line of boys’ clothing called Regions of Rock, an “urban rock” line of clothing ranging from infant sizes to boys’ size 20.

Born and raised in Atlanta, Monica Denise Arnold is a talented R&B / pop singer, songwriter and actress. She began her singing career as a member of Charles Thompson and the Majestics, a 12-piece traveling choir that led to her signing a recording contract with Arista Records in 1995. Monica went on to become the youngest R&B recording act in history to have two consecutive chart-topping hits on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

While maintaining a recording career, Monica added another title to her credits – actor. She has appeared in several films, including Boys and Girls (2000), ATL (2006) and MTV Films’ Love Song (2000). She has also made several television appearances on Living Single, Beverly Hills: 90210, Felicity and American Dreams.

Even with all the success of her entertainment career, Monica undeniably has experienced personal tribulations. It was with the spiritual guidance of her parents and family that she withstood the devastating suicide of her boyfriend Jarvis “Knot” Weems, and it is that same support that helps her keep standing today. Monica is a strong, poised, vivacious woman, and with this reality show, she wants to show viewers and fans that anything is possible once you have set your mind to do it.
