Monica ‘Scared’ Of Reality Television, Exposing Kids

R&B singer Monica admits the prospect of putting her life and family on television for millions to see every week was frightening. But, after thinking about the effect it could have on others she went for it. “It was very scary stepping into the type of situation that would expose me and my life,” Monica says of the forthcoming BET reality series ‘Still Standing: Monica’. Slated to premiere in October, Monica’s forthcoming reality series will not only showcase preparation for the release of her fifth studio album but, her struggle as a hard working mom attempting to ‘juggle it all’. While Monica’s series has been anticipated for months, the mother of two says it would not be airing if it weren’t for the positive effect she believes it may have on youth. “I think that there are so many kids now that are aspiring to do exactly what I’ve done and I felt like that was worth me putting myself on the line so they would really understand what it’s like to try and juggle both a music career and personal life.” “Still Standing: Monica’ premieres October 27, only on BET.
