Good for Monica!
She's at least trying to turn her life around. She could have gotten lipo'd and plastic surgeried enough to go the Playboy route but instead chose to improve her mind. Instead of sinking deeper in the mud, she is lifting herself out of it.
I did a lot of stupid things in my 20's and I'm grateful they weren't advertised to the entire world.
I agree with you. I think she is to be respected. She went away, studied hard, kept her name out of the headlines and achieved something important. I think it's time to stop teasing this girl. Let's remember she was USED by a man who should have known better. She turned her life around and that should be lauded.
