Mona Scott-Young

Mona Scott-Young is a “21st Century Renaissance Sister” (Essence) – Executive Producer of VH1’s mega successful franchise, “Love & Hip Hop”, CEO of Monami Entertainment (home to Grammy Award-winning artist Missy Elliott),  Partner in Myx Fusions Beverage LLC (a wine company formed in collaboration with Nicky Minaj), and now, with the launch of Monami Direct and the release of novel, BLURRED LINES, publisher and author.

Blurred Lines is a page-turning, juicy story of love, lies and betrayal set in the world of music and entertainment–all themes that our viewers are familiar with, but the novel will take readers ‘beyond the reality’ and dive more deeply into the compelling storytelling they have come to know and love. We’re thrilled and excited to continue the connection with our existing fans and with the launch of Monami Direct, our new, exciting, straight-to-consumer platform, we look forward to expanding our reach to a whole new audience! – Mona Scott-Young

“I’ve blurred the lines of storytelling throughout my entire career as a novelist and television producer, and it made total sense to expand on that with Blurred Lines.There are no lines between my partnership and friendship with Mona, and our debut novel is indicative of that: it’s a dramatically layered story that isn’t bound
by the limits of reality television.”
