Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 12 Salaries Exposed

real housewives of atlanta season 12 salaries

Season 11 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta got off to a rough start. Viewers tried to adjust to Kenya Moore losing her peach. But by the time the show ended, most people were satisfied with all of the messiness that was delivered, which was evident by Show Buzz Daily's recap from Nielsen ratings.

Now we’re getting ready for Season 12, which promises to be just as entertaining and even more profitable for some of the cast members. The Atlanta Housewives crushed the other franchises in ratings. As the most popular series, it’s only right that the peach holders and friends of the cast are rewarded for keeping viewers entertained through each and every episode. However, not everyone will be making a huge salary.

Here how much the cast of RHOA will make for Season 12, according to our trusted source.

Tanya Sam

Some people are confused as to what Tanya Sam brings to the show besides her head-to-toe designer outfits. Whether you think she deserves a peach or not, the executives have decided they love having her on the show. She got a $50,000 pay raise, which brings her new salary to $150,000 for Season 12.

Eva Marcille

Newlywed Eva Marcille will be juggling motherhood and her new duties as a wife in Season 12. Her salary reportedly went from $250,000 to $275,000.

Marlo Hampton

Marlo Hampton still hasn’t snagged a peach, but she’ll still be back to cause some more drama. She made $275,000 for Season 11, and she was bumped up to $300,000 for the upcoming season.

Kenya Moore

Kenya Moore was reportedly asked to return to the show, but she won't be making the $1.5 million dollars she was making before. Instead, sources say Bravo will be starting her out at a rate of $500,000 for Season 12.

Porsha Williams

Porsha Williams is one housewife who has done a complete 180. She went from being banished by most of the cast for her behavior and for spreading a horrible rumor about Kandi Burruss and her husband, Todd Tucker. But she was able to turn things around, and she and Kandi are even back to being cordial.

With Porsha entering a new phase of her life as a mother and bride-to-be, her paycheck went from $1.25 million to $1.3 million dollars for Season 12. Now that there are rumors that she and her fiancé, Dennis McKinley, have broken up, her storyline will be even juicier than before.

Cynthia Bailey

It’s being reported that Cynthia Bailey’s peach is hanging by a thread. Producers reportedly want more footage of her relationship with sportscaster Mike Hill in order to spice up her storyline. Her salary went from $1.75 million in Season 11 to just $1.8 million for Season 12.

Kandi Burruss

Kandi Burruss is always making money moves, so we’re not surprised that her salary continues to increase more and more as the show continues. She was able to negotiate a slightly higher pay raise for season 12, bumping her from $2.2 million to $2.3 million dollars.

The real question is: how will Kandi re-invest this money? Will she put it into one of her existing businesses or will she launch something new? We’ll have to wait and see!

NeNe Leakes

The season ended with NeNe Leakes dumping her best friend, Cynthia, and unfriending the majority of the cast on social media. She also has a lot of issues going on in her marriage to Gregg Leakes and producers want to make sure that all of NeNe’s battles are front and center for Season 12.

She reportedly made $2.75 million in Season 11, and she received an increase for Season 12 in the amount of $2.85 million dollars, making her the highest-paid housewife. All hail the H.B.I.C.!

Shamari DeVoe

Who Is Nipsey Hussle's Baby Mama Tanisha Foster?

Tanisha Foster Nipsey Hussle baby mama

Many people are aware of the love Nipsey Hussle had for Lauren London, the mother of his son Kross Asghedom. But there was another person in his life who was also significant, and her name is Tanisha Foster. She’s the mother of his daughter Emani Asghedom, and following the news that Nipsey's life had been cut short outside of his Marathon Clothing Store, fans wondered what kind of relationship Tanisha had with the late rapper and those closest to him.

Here’s what we know about Nipsey’s first baby mama.

Her early years

tanisha foster chyna hussle

When she was born on May 17, 1984, she was given the name of Tanisha Foster. But online, she goes by a few different names, including Tanisha Asghedom on Facebook, although she and Nipsey were never married.

On Twitter and Instagram, she goes by the name Chyna Hussle. In an Instagram caption, Tanisha revealed that it was Nipsey’s late friend and business partner Stephen “Fatts” Donelson who gave her the nickname "Chyna the Locc." The name stuck with her ever since.

Her relationship with Nipsey Hussle

It’s unclear exactly when she and Nipsey met. But in a December 2012 Facebook post, she showed off a tattoo in honor of the rapper. In the comments section, she confirmed that she and Nipsey had been together for almost ten years. That would mean they started dating sometime around 2002 when they were teenagers.

Tanisha would also have a son by someone else in 2003, and a daughter a few years later. 

The truth about her pregnancy

nipsey hussle tanisha foster pregnant

In 2008, she found out she was pregnant by Nipsey. In a documentary about fatherhood, Nipsey said he was excited but worried because he and Tanisha weren’t together when she got pregnant. Either way, they decided to keep the baby and raise the child together. 

Things didn’t go as planned though. Nipsey got locked up at some point during Tanisha’s pregnancy, and when he was behind bars, that’s when he picked the perfect name for his daughter: Emani Dior. Nipsey said he liked the name because it means “beautiful faith” in Swahili and because it starts with an “E,” just like his name, Ermias.

Life as co-parents

tanisha foster emani asghedom

Emani was born in 2009, and Nipsey and Tanisha jumped into their lives as co-parents. Nipsey proved to be an amazing father to their daughter and a great father figure to her other kids. In December 2012, Tanisha revealed that Nipsey was taking her children shopping for school clothes as a Christmas present. 

She also referred to him as the best father ever, and even though they weren’t always on good terms, Tanisha always repped his clothing brand. She would wish him a happy birthday, and a happy father’s day, and it appeared that she still had a close relationship with many of his close family members and friends. Nipsey had nothing but respect for her also, which was evident by this 2011 shoutout he posted on Twitter. 

Then things got messy

When Valentine’s Day 2013 rolled around, Tanisha went to Las Vegas with Nipsey, according to a post on her Facebook page. But that same year, he would meet and fall in love with actress Lauren London

Nipsey and Lauren became inseparable. Although they kept their relationship private, they would post pictures of each other on their social media accounts from time to time. To outsiders, it was clear that Lauren and Nipsey were definitely in love. 

However, in 2014, Tanisha attempted to tweet Lauren London. She accidentally sent the message to the wrong account, but she basically stated that Nipsey was still in love with her. It wouldn’t be the first time Tanisha alleged there was something more than co-parenting going on between her and the rapper. 

In November 2017, in response to a fan’s comments which read that she and Nipsey were rumored to be reuniting, Tanisha responded: "We never broke up lol show me the blog." 

Her custody battle

Tanisha has been in the news more than ever since Nipsey passed away. It all started with the rapper’s fans realizing she wasn’t included in his public memorial service. But she was still recognized when Adam Anderbrhan read his obituary, and Tanisha was referred to as Nipsey’s “love.” 

She’s now involved in a custody battle. Nipsey’s sister, Samantha Smith, told the court she believes Tanisha is an unfit mother, according to TMZ. In order to ensure the continued stability for Emani, Samantha asked for custody of the little girl. 

On May 20, 2019, the court agreed to place Emani in Samantha’s care. Tanisha, who said she hadn’t seen Emani in months, reportedly broke down crying in court when she saw her daughter for the first time. 

More bad news for Tanisha

That’s not the only thing she has on her plate. TMZ also revealed that Tanisha was wanted by the authorities after she skipped out on a May court date for a DUI charge she received a couple years back. According to The Blast, Tanisha was ordered to attend AA meetings and she's facing jail time.

Our hearts break that Emani not only lost her dad, but she’s now caught in the middle of this battle. Regardless of how Nipsey’s fans feel about Tanisha, does she deserve to be treated with respect for giving Nipsey one of the greatest gifts he has ever received?

The Truth About Toni Braxton & Birdman's MESSY Relationship

toni braxton birdman breakup

Toni Braxton and Birdman made their red carpet debut back in June 2016, and since then, fans have been a little perplexed about their romance. They appear to be complete opposites, but their relationship seems to work for them...well, sometimes. There are some weird things going on with their messy relationship.

They’ve been friends for years

In an interview with Wendy Williams, Birdman revealed he and Toni have been friends for almost two decades. They first linked up when the singer was featured on Birdman’s debut album for his 2002 song, “Baby Can You Do It."

In the music video, Toni and Birdman got very flirty, and the chemistry between them was off the charts. But they kept things platonic because, at the time, Toni was a newlywed. She had just married Mint Condition group member Keri Lewis the year prior to hitting up the video music set.

A big purchase

birdman toni braxton bentley

Three years after her divorce from her ex-husband was finalized, Toni and Birdman made many public appearances together. And just months after they became an official couple, Birdman splurged on a Bentley SUV for his new girlfriend.

According to Hip Hop DX, the luxury ride has an estimated price tag of close to $300,000. So what’s so strange about a man buying his woman an expensive gift? Well, a year before the big purchase, Lil Wayne alleged that Birdman and Cash Money Records owed him for the delay of his album, Tha Carter V. Lil Wayne was demanding $51 million dollars, according to TMZ, and some people thought the money Birdman used to buy Toni’s Bentley should’ve gone to Lil Wayne Instead.

Was she still single?

Days before she received her new car, her sister, Tamar Braxton, jumped on Snapchat and asked her followers to help find Toni a boyfriend. These kinds of mixed signals made many people wonder if Toni and Birdman weren’t serious about each other, or if Tamar was just being her usual, messy self. 

He put the pressure on her 

toni braxton birdman wedding

Birdman popped the question in February 2018, and Toni told E!'s Daily Pop that Birdman told her to pick a wedding date ASAP because he wanted to get married before 2018 came to a close. At first, Birdman told her he wanted their nuptials to take place in California, then he changed his mind and said they could get married in a drive-thru. It would've been Toni’s second marriage and Birdman’s first. But 2018 would pass them by, and Toni kept pushing back their wedding date. She told Essence magazine that her work commitments kept getting in the way of wedding planning. But a lot of her fans thought it was a sign of trouble in paradise.

Something is missing

They were only engaged for nine months when Toni revealed in a tweet that she had left her Louis Vuitton train case on a Delta flight from New York to Los Angeles. Inside of the case was her yellow diamond engagement ring that was reportedly worth $5 million dollars, E! News reports. The next day, she let her fans know that her train case had been recovered, but a lot of her jewelry, including her pricey engagement ring, was still missing.

Even Birdman wondered why she took the ring off in the first place. But he told Wendy Williams he wasn’t too worried about it because he would just splurge on a new ring if he had to.

New year, new problems

toni braxton birdman breakup

In Jan 2019, two months after her jewelry went missing, it appeared that she and Birdman had called it quits. Birdman posted “It’s over” on his Instagram Story, according to E! News, and Toni scrubbed her whole profile clean. She then posted a photo of herself wearing a red dress, along with a caption that read, in part, “Starting a new chapter isn’t always an easy choice, but ALWAYS choose to be chosen.” The pair also reportedly unfollowed each other on the social media platform. And you know what that means? It's Done...or maybe not...

Was it all fake?

During an April 2019 appearance on the Wendy Williams Show, Birdman confirmed Toni’s engagement ring was never found, he also revealed that their January 2019 breakup was fake, and they were still together and happier than ever. Okay, so now they're playing games. Cool.

They're more in love than ever

By the time April 2019 rolled around, it was clear that they were still very much in love with each other. A source told HollywoodLife that their relationship was solid, and they didn’t mind all the drama surrounding their romance because it brought more attention to Toni’s reality show, Braxton Family Values. SMH.

Which U.S. Real Housewives Have the Highest Net Worth?

There are a few things we can expect while watching Real Housewives: drama, a lot of wine, and luxurious wealth. Even though some of the stars have experienced serious blows to their net worth over the years, the majority of these Bravo reality stars have enough assets to make it rain whenever they feel like it.

According to our trusted sources, here’s a list of the wealthiest U.S. Real Housewives with the highest net worth.

Karen Huger $10 million

When she first appeared on The Real Housewives of Potomac, Karen Huger referred to her husband, Raymond Huger, as the Black Bill Gates. They lived in a beautiful home in Potomac, which they purchased for $1.5 million dollars in February 2003. But in July 2017, the Washington Post reported that her software executive husband and his company owed over a million dollars in back taxes.

They would later put their home up for sale, according to Variety, and despite the issues surrounding their income, Money Inc. reported in 2018 that Karen has a net worth of $10 million dollars. In addition to starting her own company, iKon Enterprises, which is a beauty and fashion boutique, she also gets paid to do public speaking engagements to promote female empowerment.

Stephanie Hollman $18 million


Stephanie Hollman may be one of the newest Bravolebrities, but she’s holding her own in the money department, thanks to her $18 million dollar net worth. The Real Housewives of Dallas star is the wife of Travis Hollman, the owner and operator of Hollman Inc. — a company that he inherited from his father.

The family business has been around since 1976, and they create fitness lockers for their notable clients, including the Chicago Cubs, the Los Angeles Lakers, the Dallas Mavericks, American Express, Facebook, and SoulCycle.

How did their company become so successful? Well, they own a special patent on their lockers that prevents any other businesses from using their methods.

Bethenny Frankel $25 million 


Bethenny Frankel went from being a private chef to publishing multiple books on dieting and fitness before she launched her Skinnygirl brand. The Real Housewives of New York star sold the cocktails portion of her company for an estimated $100 million in 2011, according to People, but she maintained control over the name and transformed Skinnygirl into a bunch of successful products, including candy, deli meat, sweeteners, popcorn, salad dressings, shapewear, and jeans.

She also buys and sells real estate, bringing her net worth to an estimated $25 million dollars, according to People magazine.

Tinsley Mortimer $35 million

When Tinsley Mortimer was 18, she eloped with a man named Topper Mortimer. They quickly got the marriage annulled, but they ended up remarrying in 2002 when she was 26, according to Town & Country. At the time, Topper was bringing in the dough as an investment banker, and when their marriage ended again in 2009, Tinsley wasn’t worried about making ends meet.

Not only is her dad a super wealthy real estate developer in Richmond, Virginia, but the New York socialite has also launched some businesses of her own, including handbag and clothing collections in Japan. She has also worked as a Christian Dior beauty ambassador, bringing her net worth to a staggering $35 million dollars.

Kandi Burruss $35 million 


Kandi Burruss made a living as a singer and songwriter long before she appeared on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. She’s credited as one of the writers for Destiny’s Child’s song “Bills, Bills, Bills,” and one of the most popular songs of the ‘90s and early 2000s — TLC’s “No Scrubs,” which she also won a Grammy for.

While she continues to have success in the music world, she and her husband, Todd Tucker, have branched out to launch other businesses, including multiple Old Lady Gang restaurants, her collection of Bedroom Kandi toys, Kandi Koated Beauty, Raising Ace, and TAGS clothing boutique.

Her net worth is an estimated $35 million, and thanks to all of her accomplishments in the business world, she even received a feature in Forbes.

Lisa Vanderpump $75 million

Lisa Vanderpump reportedly has the highest net worth of all the current U.S. Housewives. She and her husband, Ken Todd, have owned and operated many companies their marriage. By 1998, they had sold four of their London bars for 10.5 million pounds. While living in California, they’ve opened more than 25 establishments, including Sur, Villa Blanca, TomTom, and Pump. Then, they have their lines of vodka and sangria, and she and her husband are both credited as producers of Vanderpump Rules. 

As an original housewife, she reportedly makes $500,000 per season, and sources say she makes the same amount for her role on Vanderpump Rules. In total, Lisa reportedly has a net worth of $75 million dollars.

So, even if she decides to leave The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills behind, which rumors suggest she's planning to quit, she’ll be just fine financially.

Joseline Hernandez's New Boyfriend: 5 Facts You Need to Know

Joseline hernandez new boyfriend

Steebie who?! Joseline Hernandez has confirmed that she has a new boyfriend in her life, and fans of the former Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star are scrambling to gather more facts about him.

Joseline and her mystery man went public in an Instagram post shared to the social media platform in April 2019. Her followers were shocked to see that Joseline had moved on from her ex, Stevie J, and even Amber Rose chimed in with, "So happy for you boo!”

Here's what we know so far about Joseline's new flame.

1. Who is Joseline Hernandez's new boyfriend?

The new man in her life hails from Philadelphia and goes by the name of Ballistic Beats. According to his Instagram account, he's a DJ and a producer. He and Joselie have been spending a lot of time in the studio together, so can we expect some new Ballistic Beats-produced tracks coming from the Puerto Rican Princess? We'll have to wait and see.

2. He already met her daughter Bonnie Bella

Things are getting serious between Joseline and her new man, and he has even met her daughter, Bonnie Bella, whom she shares with Stevie J. The three of them have dined out together, and they've even taken pictures that look a lot like family photo shoots.

With the recent rumors that Stevie J isn't winning any Father of the Year awards, maybe it's a good thing that Ballistic Beats has stepped up to the plate.

3. Will he appear on her reality show?

The ratings for Love And Hip Hop Atlanta have been on the decline for a while now, and some think it's partially due to Joseline leaving the show at the end of season 6 after she butted heads with the show's executive producer Mona Scott-Young. The season 8 premiere garnered one million viewers less than season 7's premiere, according to the Nielsen Ratings (via Rolling Out).

Joseline confirmed in a tweet that she and Bonnie Bella will star on their own reality show on WE Tv.

But the program's premiere date has reportedly been delayed, according to The Jasmine Brand. Here's what the website shared in March 2019:
"Sources tell us that there has been an alleged delay on moving forward with the show. We’re told that Joseline allegedly was informed that she needed to reshoot the show. No word on why Joseline was allegedly told to reshoot and when/if the show will make it to air."

Now that she has a new boyfriend in her life, we wouldn't be surprised if he makes an appearance on her reality show, too!

4. She's already in love

Even though we were only made aware of her new boyfriend less than a month ago, Joseline has stated that she has fallen hard for DJ Ballistic Beats. On April 11, they visited his hometown together, and Joseline, all decked out in an all-red outfit, captioned an Instagram photo: "In ❤️ with a #Philly N***A"

5. Is she trying to make Stevie jealous?

Joseline began dating her Love & Hip Hop Atlanta co-star, Stevie J, in 2011. They welcomed their daughter in December 2016, and things were up and down between them at that time (mainly down), but they put their differences aside and began the journey of co-parenting.

joseline hernandez gives birth bonnie bella

But by July 2017, they became entangled in a bitter custody battle, and when Stevie J married R&B singer Faith Evans in July 2018 in Las Vegas, according to a TMZ report, things got even messier between the former couple.

In March 2019, Joseline claimed Stevie had abandoned Bonnie Bella. Some people think Joseline is now dating DJ Ballistic Beats and flaunting their relationship all over social media just to make Stevie jealous.

Either way, we're happy for her. How about you?

All the Signs Monica & Shannon Brown's Marriage Was Doomed

monica shannon brown divorce

When TMZ reported that R&B singer Monica had filed for divorce from professional basketball player Shannon Brown in March 2019, not everyone was surprised. They have gone through a lot during their eight-year marriage, from multiple cheating allegations to rumors that the T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle star was the other woman at the start of their romance.

As we look back at everything that happened during their relationship, we noticed that we missed a bunch of red flags, as well as so many signs that, sadly, their marriage was doomed from the start.

1. A speedy engagement 

monica shannon brown engagement ring

Monica and Shannon met in the summer of 2010 when the former Los Angeles Laker played her love interests in the music video for “Love All Over Me.” Just a few months later, she was flashing a huge engagement ring on Twitter.

Because their relationship went from zero to 100 in the blink of an eye, the R&B singer knew she was going to receive a ton of backlash. So she posted a message on Twitter to acknowledge everyone who had an opinion about their quickie romance. She added, “But we know who we are [...] We pray to an awesome God together," she wrote, in part.

Despite feeling hopeful about their relationship, trouble was brewing almost immediately.

2. Was Monica the other woman? 

shannon brown baby mama

When she and Shannon began dating, many people were immediately confused. As recently as June 2010, Shannon was still involved with a woman named Sharde (pictured, right), whom he also shares a son with. Sharde was even by his side during the Lakers championship parade in June 2010, according to The YBF. A week later, he was on set to play Monica’s love interest in her music video.

Just a few short months after the championship parade that Sharde attended, Shannon was engaged to Monica. So was the “Angel of Mine” singer the other woman all along? Shannon addressed the allegations in an August 2010 since-deleted tweet (via The YBF). He wrote:

“Monica is my girlfriend, confidant and a strong successful woman that has been through a lot herself but she is in no way, a home wrecker. As a parent, I understand that parenting requires a partnership with my son's mother however the relationship between us fizzled a long time ago."
Maybe he was telling the truth and things between him and Sharde were simply platonic. But this wouldn’t be the last time he was labeled a two-timer.

3. Did their age difference cause a problem?

monica shannon brown divorce

By the time they got engaged, Monica was 29-years-old, and Shannon was only 24. To some people, this doesn’t seem like a big deal. But if you factor in Shannon’s career as a professional basketball player with access to a lot of money and groupies, this was a recipe for disaster.

She told The Breakfast Club in 2016 that other basketball wives warned her about the stories and lies that would flood the gossip magazines, but nothing could prepare her for what she would have to deal with.

4. The first sign of trouble 

monica shannon brown divorce

Shannon told Monica on the first day they met that he would marry her. Months later, in November 2010, he fulfilled his promise in a secret wedding ceremony in Los Angeles, People reports. They had a second wedding ceremony for family and friends in July 2011.

The professional basketball player told Hip Hop Non-Stop (via People):

“It’s true. That’s my wife, I’m her husband, you know. We’re going to continue to make positive things happen.” 
The positivity didn’t last long, though.

Right after they celebrated their two-year wedding anniversary, a woman by the name of Corie Zenobia exposed some old messages Shannon allegedly sent her on Twitter in 2011. In the messages, Shannon was pursuing the woman, but there was never any confirmation that they actually met up.

Still, it wasn’t looking good for Monica, and this was just the first of many cheating allegations that would plague their marriage. 

5. More cheating allegations

In Sept. 2013, Monica gave birth to their daughter, Laiyah Shannon Brown. Their baby girl joined Monica’s two sons from a previous relationship,  Romelo and Rodney Hill, and Shannon’s son from a previous relationship. It marked a happy time in the Brown household, but it was a brief moment of joy.

In April 2016, a woman contacted the blog Industry On Blast and accused Shannon of sliding into her DM. The woman said the basketball player flew her out for two days so they could hook up, and he allegedly admitted to her that he wasn’t happy in his marriage.

That same year, Industry On Blast also reported Shannon had gotten a woman named Tammy pregnant and was the father of her two-year-old child, though the blog later claimed the woman was a "psychotic stalker" via Rolling Out.

Monica denied the allegations. Shannon, on the other hand, posted a picture of his wrecked vehicle on Instagram and said if he could survive that car accident, he could live through all of the lies printed about him in the media.

6. Did her intuition try to warn her?

During a 2016 appearance on The Breakfast Club, Monica said she was hesitant to get serious with Shannon when they first met. Because of her past experiences and dealing with infidelity with other men, she had her guard up. Shannon reportedly told her at the start of their relationship, “Let me show you who I am or I'm about to cut this off.”

At the time, they hadn’t had any issues in their romance, but things were still brand new. She was still very nervous about moving things forward, but she couldn’t understand why she was so afraid. Was her intuition trying to warn her?

7. Going ringless 

monica shannon brown divorce

2018 brought a major shift to their marriage. Monica was spotted out and about without her wedding ring, while Shannon was too busy slanging his meat all over Instagram to notice.

On March 26, 2019, he posted a cryptic message on Instagram, reminding himself to protect the peaceful place he had created in his life. The very next day, it was reported that Monica had filed for divorce earlier that same month, citing irreconcilable differences on her petition.

8. She wanted the meat, but was she lacking trust?

monica ti and tiny family hustle girls trip

On an episode of T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle, Tiny Harris, Toya Wright, and LeToya Luckett planned a girls trip to a winery, but Monica was hesitant to go. Why?

She kept insisting that she didn’t want to just sit around and “talk” with her girlfriends. Instead, she wanted some “meat” included on the trip. Meat = men.

In one clip, Toya says, “Don’t kill the vibe. We’re going to enjoy this girls trip, and you’ll go home and get your meat later, okay?”

Monica made it seem as if she really wanted her husband and the rest of her friends’ significant others to join them to help spice up the trip. But now, some people think Monica wanted Shannon to join them so that she could keep an eye on him. A lack of trust? Perhaps.

What's Next?

While their marriage may be over, Monica has a lot to look forward to. She has plans to release a new album in 2019 and she is staying focused on raising her children, while Shannon is currently playing in the NBA's Gatorade League for the Grand Rapids Drive, though it's unclear if he'll return for the 2019-2020 season.

A lot of people knew her marriage to Shannon was doomed from the start, but we still wish them the best as they move into this new phase of their lives.

Do you think Monica did the right thing by filing for divorce?
