In 2011, Monaco and her General Hospital co-star Kirsten Storms appeared on the reality show Dirty Soap. The short-lived series followed several soap stars as they navigated work and personal issues.
On the very first episode of the show, Monaco was seen burning her prom dress. Her reason? The dress was a reminder of her ex-boyfriend, whom she was desperately trying to move on from.
Monaco dated her high school sweetheart Mike Gonzalez for 18 years. The couple met when Monaco was a junior in high school, and he was a big part of her life before she became famous. Their relationship ended in 2009.
