You must not know bout me!

Ohh Solange is serving up the drama! She better watch her back though, Monica Jackson used to be a traffic reporter in Detroit and is no stranger to fistfights in the newsrooms!

Monica Jackson, the new traffic reporter at KVVU-TV, Channel 5, comes to town towing some colorful baggage.

Jackson, who started at Fox5 on Monday, made headlines in Detroit two years ago when she got in an off-camera catfight with a morning anchor.

Here's the play-by-play: The altercation erupted on the set of Detroit's WXYZ-TV, according to published news accounts, as the result of a "festering personality conflict" between Jackson, a traffic reporter at the ABC affiliate at the time, and morning anchor Carolyn Clifford.

At the heart of the issue, the story goes, was Jackson's unhappiness that she lost out on the morning anchor spot given to Clifford.

"Jackson made no secret of her disdain for Clifford," reported the Detroit News, "going so far as to stop referring to her by name on the air." Clifford began responding in kind.

One morning, tempers got hotter than radiators during a traffic jam.

Off-camera taunts and finger-pointing led to chest bumping. Push led to shove, which led to a hair-yanking fracas before a male co-anchor broke it up.
