Monica Hayes is the biological daughter of Cindy Hayes, but was raised as her sister. She is portrayed by Donshea Hopkins.

Biography Edit

Monica appeared in Cindy's flasback episode, "Comic Sans". Monica lives with Cindy's mother, Lillian, and believes that Lillian is her mother and Cindy is her sister.

Cindy behaves very irresponsibly with Monica when Monica is in her care, such as taking her out for her birthday and leaving her sitting in the car for hours until Cindy eventually takes Monica inside whilst they all get high.

At the end of Comic Sans, Cindy threatens to take Monica away from Lillian until Lillian points out that there is no way Cindy is responsible enough to provide for Monica properly. At the end of the episode, Cindy is asked in passing by a stranger if she has children, and she replies, "no".

In season 5, Monica expresses conern for Cindy, and wonders how Lillian could not be worried, since there was an ongoing prison riot. Lillian lies and tells her that Cindy had been transfered to another prison before the riot started, but Monica knows this to be untrue, because she found the Black Lattes Matter meme online, with Cindy in it. The two fight and Monica ends up saying she wished Lillian wasn't her mother, Lillian responded by saying sometimes she wished the same.
