Ms. Monaco's television credits include co-hosting the 33rd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards when they were broadcast for the first time from Hollywood. She also starred in the first season of the ABC hit series, Dancing With the Stars, where she won the dance championship. She had a three-and-a-half-year stint on the ABC daytime drama Port Charles, where she garnered her first Daytime Emmy Nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in 2003. Her television debut occurred in 1997, when she landed a recurring role on Baywatch. While shooting Port Charles, she also guest starred opposite Charlie Sheen and Heather Locklear in a season finale of ABC's Spin City.

Kelly grew up on the East Coast, where she participated in soccer, swimming, track and softball, among other sports. Her family moved from the bustling city of Philadelphia to the more peaceful environment of the Poconos. In addition to athletics, she participated intensely in speech, debate and theater in high school.
