Find­ing love has proven dif­fi­cult for cloth­ing de­signer Monet Bell, so she’s put her love life in the hands of real­ity show #BlackLove (2015-cur­rent). The se­ries fol­lows the ro­man­tic lives of Monet and four other black women in New York City and Monet can’t wait to find her Prince Charm­ing…

This isn’t the first time that the 341

year-old’s turned to real­ity TV for re­la­tion­ship help. She was on Mar­ried At First Sight (2014-cur­rent) in 2014, where she met her hus­band Vaughn Copeland at the al­tar for the first time. They weren’t as much of a match as the show’s “re­la­tion­ship ex­perts” had pre­dicted and they di­vorced by the time the 13-episode sea­son ended.

Monet learnt from the show and 2

says, “You want to talk about get­ting to know your­self? Put your­self in an in­ten­sive five-week crash course of mar­riage. You don’t even know the things that you didn’t know about your­self un­til you get mar­ried!”

She wants to be a mom and she’s 3

freez­ing her eggs un­til she meets her Mr Right, adding that her de­ci­sion “has al­le­vi­ated so much stress on me”.

Monet’s also done eat­ing junk4

food [which she and Vaughn did all the time] and she’s teach­ing her­self to cook. If you want to see what she’s whipped up, she posts snaps to her in­sta­gram ac­count @mon­et­bell.

She’s also de­vel­op­ing ac­tive wear 5

(be­cause she’s ob­sessed with gym­ming) and Monet is tar­get­ing the famed Home Net­work Chan­nel to sell it.

Monet be­lieves in giv­ing back to 6

the com­mu­nity and she’s a men­tor in The Brother­hood/Sis­ter Sol sup­port group for trou­bled youths. She helps at her lo­cal Har­lem branch with phys­i­cal and ed­u­ca­tional ac­tiv­i­ties.
