Ethnicity and Background

Monica is Caucasian, and has blonde hair and blue eyes.

She sometimes dyes her hair and a shade or two lighter, and has platinum blonde hair, which also looks good on her.

She has three siblings, sisters Kerry, Jessica and Brigette.

Monica Potter

As of her education, Monica was a student of the Villa Angela Academy and Euclid High School, and spent some of her formative years in Arab, Alabama.Reportedly, she had ambitions to become an actress from an early age, thus acting in Cleveland Play House when she was in elementary school. At the age of 12, she began working at a flower shop, and later on in a sub sandwich shop. She then modeled, and worked on several commercials, which resulted in her relocating to Los Angeles in 1994. Her meteoric rise to fame began in 1995, when she appeared in the music video for “Tall, Tall Trees”.

Social Media

Some of her latest posts on Twitter include a photo of her when she was a teenager. She jokingly added that she’s a “kewl mom,” and that she loves embarrassing her kids with her photos. She also promoted the products she made for her Monica Potter Home brand.

She has recently posted a photo of herself and her sons taken in the ‘90s, and went on to add just how much she loves them. Her followers seem to have loved the photo as they went on to leave numerous sweet messages. Besides that, Monica shared a selfie in a gorgeous pink dress, which her fans also loved and complimented her on her looks.

Relationship Status

Despite being a public figure, Monica prefers keeping some things behind closed doors and being secretive regarding some topics. However, we do know that she has married two times – in 1990 she married Tom Potter, but their marriage ended in divorce eight years later. In 2005, she married Daniel Christopher Allison, but they divorced in September 2018. She has two sons from her first marriage, and one daughter from her second marriage. She doesn’t share anything that might indicate her relationship status as of today, which has led many to believe she’s single, but who knows what the future holds. Monica is seemingly very happy alongside her three kids and that’s all that matters.


Monica made her acting debut with a small role in “Young and Restless”, and followed by working on projects such as “Bulletproof”, “Con Air” and “A Cool, Dry Place”. As of the early 2000s, the audience was able to see her in “Head Over Heels”, in which she played the role of Amanda in 2001 and in “I’m with Lucy” in 2002. In the latter movie, Potter starred as Lucy, a woman who experiences five blind dates and has to pick “Mr. Right”. She continued to work at a rapid pace, joining the cast of “Boston Legal” in 2004 for a year, working alongside actors such as James Spader, William Shatner and Candice Bergen.

Her most recent acting projects include “Parenthood”, in which she starred as Kristina Braverman and “Sweet Magnolias”, which is in pre-production. Overall, she has had 25 acting gigs, which have allowed her to have her own place in the spotlight and, as she’s a hardworking woman, we are sure there is more to come for her career-wise.

Monica Potter Home

Anyone who knows or follows Potter on social media knows that she’s into home décor and natural skincare. She launched her internet store in 2015, and sells products such as lip balms and facial oils. Her products have been reviewed positively by the audience and customers, which certainly is a big milestone in her career.

1[on who deserves the 2013 Emmy for Supporting Actress in a Drama Series] I love Anna Gunn. She's great. And we share the same manager, so I feel like there's a sisterhood there.
2"If something strikes me as really funny, very intriguing or really touching, then I just go and do it. It's never about managing my career in a way that this would be a good move. I have enough people telling me what to do, so I think that when I read something, if I admire the writing and who's directing it, I just go for it." Interview, April 2001.
