Monica threw her fiancé, Rocko, a huge birthday party at Straits Restaurant in Atlanta. The spot, owned by Mo’s cousin Chistopher Ludacris Bridges was packed wall to wall with all of the couple’s celebrity friends.
Derek Blanks, Shawty Lo and his wife, D.Woods, Kandi Buress (xscape), Jerry Clark (island def jam), Sheree Whitfield, Paster Troy, Young Ralph, Yung Joc, Jazze Pha….hell, even Dekalb County CEO Vernon Jones popped in for a piece of cake! I went, thinking that the birthday bash was going to be Monica & Rocko’s wedding reception. I’m sure you noticed that I still referred to Rocko as Monica’s fiance…well, that’s because the two haven’t eloped and I was angry for nothing. Monica cleared up the ‘secret wedding’ rumor and stated that B. Cox referring to her as Rocko’s wife is not unusual. They don’t think of her as his ‘baby momma’ and it’s a respect thing. Plus, she added that Bryan has been privy to intimate details of their plans for the big day.
The two lovebirds sat like the king and queen of the ‘A’ at the head of a table full of their friends and family but one self proclaimed king must have been home alone a bit too long cause he made a surprise visit to escort his queen home. Continue Reading…
Y’all dragged me off of my Christmast vacaction with this one! I’ve received emails, phone calls and knocks on my front door of people asking me wassup with Monica. Apparently word on the street is that Monica and her boo Rocko have been living in wedded bliss for some time now and haven’t told anyone…*cough* “Anyone” meaning me! Monica, the mother of two of the cutest kids I know, and her perpetual fiance Rodney Ramone Hill, Jr., aka Rocko Da Don. are rumored to have tied the knot.
Super producer Bryan-Michael Cox let the cat out of the bag during a recent interview:
Question: Back in the day Brandy and Monica were sort of the touted R&B/Pop queens, much like you have let’s say Rihanna and Beyonce today. Working with Monica, who now has children and a family life, was the experience of producing for her new album a challenge?
Bryan Michael Cox: Monica, she’s a mother, a WIFE and all of that right now and she’s a young woman. She was really open. She didn’t want to make a “Oh I’m married and I have to do this” type of album. She still wanted to make a young and fly album. (Source)
Monica herself has also been known to call Rocko her hubby and indicated that they were married in an interview earlier this year. I, for one, am happy for the couple but disappointed that I didn’t receive my INVITE. Wassup with that MO?? 😕

Quick Flix/Video ~ Brandy & Monica Reunite
Monica and Brandy reunited last night during a “surprise” performance onstage. The pair performed “The Boy is Mine” for the first time together in 10 years and the crowd went wild. I actually enjoyed the lil bit of the performance I saw while fighting with the crowd to get flix. I’m still p*ssed about not getting my footage but I’m not even going to hate on the event or the event staff…let’s just say they were less than accommodating.
