There’s been a lot of effort recently to unmask Avatar Monica, the owner of All About The Tea. Unfortunately, it looks like any woman named Monica, or who sounds like Monica, could be doxed as her. In an effort to inform and to stop the Fail Doxes, we here at Iron Troll will be doing a series of posts about the real woman behind the avatar with links and screen captures to back up what we say. We’ll even give you an idea of what Monica really looks like (spoiler alert: she doesn’t look like her avatar).
Some of you out there need to slow down on the doxing. A name or a similar voice isn’t proof of anything, and using this to dox someone as Monica without evidence could backfire and cause legal problems for some of you, should any of these women feel like they’re being harassed or defamed.
On the other hand, there shouldn’t be any worries about legal action from Monica. Though she’s been filing complaints with YouTube against people who are talking about her, the law is pretty clear. You have a first amendment right to express your opinion and discuss anyone involved in a matter of public interest, if they’re a public figure or semi-public figure like Monica.
So those of you doing posts and videos about Monica, watch what you say about private citizens, but at the same time, don’t let Monica bully or threaten you. She’s been being shady, and doing shady, on All About The Tea for years and gotten away with it because she keeps her identity secret. This time though, Monica tried playing one of her games on YouTube so she can’t blame anyone else for what she said. Everybody saw. Everybody heard.
As for her real identity, Monica was doxed many years ago, but regardless, she goes through more names and identities like people go through Kleenex. So just for the record, her first name isn’t Monica, it’s Kenya.
Before she started All About The Tea in 2014, Monica was a writer at a popular reality blog called TV Fishbowl. For whatever reasons, she didn’t like Teresa Giudice of Real Housewives Of New Jersey. She started writing nasty things about Teresa in her blog posts, which upset Teresa’s fans. They started complaining about her lack of impartiality and long story short, Monica quit TV fishbowl to start her own blog.
So she was nasty back in 2014, too. During her TV Fishbowl days, Monica used her fake name, Monica Allen, with her fellow bloggers, but she used the name Dr. Suess on her blog posts. This was probably the only time she used an alias that people could tell was fake.
She’s still using fake identities to this day. One of the names she’s writing under now is Raissa Asunbo, who supposedly lives in Canada, but if you Google her, nothing shows up for her except her short bio and articles on All About The Tea. These days it’s just not possible for someone to have no personal information online.
She’s also writing under the name, Nancy Zhang, a Chinese American who is a writer and personal chef. Notice that she went to LSU and has 2 German Shepherds.
This is actually funny in a twisted kind of way. If you check Nancy Zhang’s AATT articles and trace her early articles back through time via the internet archives, articles written by Chinese American Nancy were once written by Caucasian Nancy, an actress and radio host who also went to LSU and has 2 German Shepherds.
And before that, at the very beginning of the blog, Nancy was Dr. Seuss. Obviously, Nancy Zhang, Nancy the actress, Dr. Seuss, and Monica are all the same person.
We’ve got lots of tea on Monica. Her full name, country of origin, and police records as well as some of the shenanigans she’s been up to through the years. So check back soon. We’ll be posting on Iron Troll blog and on our YouTube channel.
