Part 3: All About AATT; Unmasking the avatar
It was on Twitter that I first encountered Monica of All About The Tea. I think it was during during Siggy’s second season on RHONJ. I had outed disbarred lawyer Bucky aka @A1_Buckwheat aka Faux of FauxRealityEntertainment as being the “publicist” for Siggy and Dolores Catania, and outed her again as being Siggy’s “intern” running Siggy’s Twitter account, so needless to say, Bucky didn’t like me much.
Bucky had started a troll campaign against Margaret Josephs, and I was working with a group of people trying to stop it. This brought me to @AllAboutDaTea’s timeline, since AATT had switched from hating Siggy in her first season on RHONJ, to loving her during her second wacky season. I found Monica so nasty, I actually thought she was Bucky. I found it hard to believe there could be more than one mean, vindictive, Reality blogger, but other people assured me that Monica and Bucky were really two different people, each with their own history of being vicious and unethical.
During our one and only Twitter thread, I corrected Monica on an incorrect interpretation of defamation. She accused me of being Margaret Josephs, I told her she sounded like Donald Trump. She blocked me.
Around then, Bucky filed 7 harassment complaints against me (perjuring herself to do so), and even though I’d never been to New Jersey, never spoken with, phoned, texted, or emailed Bucky, the case went forward. The judge decided New Jersey had jurisdiction because my blog was on the internet and New jersey has internet. The case was dropped after 18 months, when Bucky insisted on playing a video recording in the court, even after the judge forbade her. The video was John Yates crying and saying he wanted to shoot someone in the head and bury her under her house. Bucky claimed it was me in the video, and that I was stalking her in New Jersey, trying to kill her. Everyone realize she was nuts, so the prosecutor’s office refused to continue representing her.
Let this be a cautionary tale to those of you involved in the witch hunt to find Monica the Avatar. No matter how justified you think you are, or righteous your cause, you can’t predict how other people will react or how low another person will go. Doxing everyone on the planet as Monica is pointless, and seems to be getting to the point of just click bait for more blog and YouTube views.
The person named Kenya that I believe to be Monica was verified by information which fits both Monica and Kenya. It’s verified by the same birthday, same anniversary, and it was verified as correct by someone who knew Monica from TV Fishbowl days that saw her name on some mail. I’m giving a soft dox of publicly available information and hope this will satisfy the curiosity for those who need to know, and stop the doxing of innocent women.
It’s a very general description of the woman behind the avatar. I won’t give specifics, because it’s illegal in some states and because some of you are batshit crazy. Let me state clearly that Texas has very strong laws against harassment and doxing. Sending emails, or calling someone, to harass them is illegal in Texas. Putting anyone in the position where they feel their safety is threatened or life is in danger is illegal in Texas. Some of these actions are felonies with jail time.
I believe Monica’s IRL name is Kenya Harrison. The Monica alias comes from her middle name, Monique. Her maiden name was Gibson, and she’s in her very late 40’s.
Kenya is Afro-Guyananese. Guyana is in South America and the native language there is English. It’s possible that Kenya was born in Guyana. Her mother emigrated to America and got married in New York, but Kenya was born three years before her mother’s marriage, so I don’t know if Kenya was born in America or Guyana.
Kenya grew up mainly in New Jersey, in the Newark, East Orange area. She attended college and then married Ricardo Harrison in 2005. They moved to Richmond, Texas where they bought a house. It appears Kenya owned retail clothing store in Houston, called Divanate Fashionswith, and ran it with her husband’s relatives. In 2016, Ricardo moved back up North. It appears they’ve been separated all this time and have a divorce pending.
In 2016, Kenya teamed up with Bucky aka FauxEntertainment, and Clay Edwards, who was Vicki Gunvalson’s former publicist. They formed Blastoff Media Group, which supposedly owned AllAboutTheTea.com. BlastOff was dissolved for not paying its taxes. Notice that Monica and Bucky still owe $1770 in back taxes. While the corporation is dissolved, I sometimes wonder if their partnership has? I can’t see Bucky giving up just because she is blacklisted by Bravo. She’d find a way to work around it.
As to how we found Monica’s identity, besides searching through the comments section on TV Fishbowl, we also searched comments on the early articles on All About The Tea. This was mostly tedious, but occasionally interesting. We did find a few more clues about the person behind the avatar mask.
This comment backed up our belief Monica lived in Texas.
This reply about Asian food referred to the restaurant chain Pei Wei, which is found in 22 Texas cities. I eliminated 4 of those cities which left:
Amarillo, Arlington, Austin, Beaumont, Carollton, Dallas, El Paso, Fort Worth, Garland, Houston, Katy, Lewisville, Pasadena, Pearland, Plano, Richardson, and San Antonio.
These were among the comments that reinforced Monica being located in Texas, and even narrowed down which cities. But it was still a large haystack, or a large rabbit hole.
Another source for identity clues is in what other people say in comments about the person. Seusseroo had been a reality show fan for awhile before becoming a blogger at TV Fishbowl so she’d probably interacted with other commenters, so we also looked for people talking about Seusseroo.
This is where we found the gold. We found a comment thread where a commenter called out Seusseroo by name.
That didn’t mean it was the right name. Finding a name for a persona doesn’t make it true. The name could be wrong, and even if it’s correct, there are usually plenty of other people with the same name. A much smaller haystack is still a haystack.
This conversation gave a lot of information and was enough to find and verify Monica’s identity. We also went to Twitter and did searches on her old Twitter handles of @SeussSeuss, @aboutthe tea, and @allaboutthetea_. You can’t see her tweets due to suspension or being locked, but you can still see tweets replies to her accounts. This is how we found Monica’s birth date and anniversary.
Here are the tweets to Monica’s old accounts. We hope this satisfies the curious and helps stop the doxing. Below the tweets is an animation model created from a picture we believe to be of Kenya.
