The Celebreality Interview – Jenny



After a supposedly shocking reveal of a supposedly “incredibly sexy” photo (that turned out to be pretty tame, actually), Jenny was bounced from A Basement Affair. Below, she talks about the damning shot, her lack of a connection with Frank and how she’s managed to go 23ish years without a boyfriend.

Did you ever think this picture would come back to haunt you?

No, because I didn’t think it was a XXX explicit picture. I also didn’t think that the show or even Frank would portray the picture as if I was nude by blurring it out. That was of course disheartening and it made me upset. They tried to make the viewers think that I am naked in a picture, which is completely false.

Obviously, the picture works as an explanation for your elimination much better when it’s blurred out. Was it weird to be there live and have something so tame be used as damning evidence?

When Frank pulled the picture out, I was like, “Yeah, that’s me in the picture, yeah I took a sexy picture.” I wasn’t like, “Oh my god you found out about me! You found out my dirty secret!” It wasn’t a dirty secret. He saw the picture and said, “You are in your panties and bra and a T-shirt and you are being extra sexy. Why don’t I see this girl?”

Did you see where he was coming from by sensing a contradiction?

I can see how he thought that I was being Miss Goody Two-Shoes and extra shy and quiet. I can understand how the picture is a shock to him, but I am a young woman. I am 23…ish and I feel like what is the big deal? It would be completely different if I was butt-booty-naked and he brought the picture out and I was pretending to be Little Miss Shy and Conservative. But on the show I never dressed conservative in sweaters and button up shirts. I’m young and sexy, and I felt like, “Where you are coming from with this?”

It seemed like you spent a lot of time talking about stepping it up, without actually ever doing so.

I was only in the house for five days. I wanted to get to know Frank and ask just general questions you would ask someone to get to know them. I didn’t feel the need to jump on him when we are still getting to know each other. Yeah, I know it’s a show and I know we have a limited time frame. But what if I don’t like your personality? What if I don’t like you? What if we don’t click? Maybe I don’t want to kiss you. Like I told him, you are going to remember my kisses because they are going to mean something more when I am into you mentally and physically.

So you never came around to being attracted to him?

I was attracted to Frank’s body and it seemed he had a nice personality, but there wasn’t enough time on the show for me to really want to kiss him and be up on him. There are 15 other girls in the house so it was difficult to get that alone time with him and when we did, I wanted to get to know him, not jump on top of him.

What do you think about the feedback from Frank’s mother?

I can understand how she could feel as a parent. But when I am trying to get to know someone and I am in their parents’ house, why is it wrong to behave like a young lady? I can take a sexy picture but that doesn’t mean I’m going to be running around the house ripping my shirt off because that’s what I did in the picture. I think she was a little bit harsh on me because ultimately we were in bikinis the night before.

Not to mention the Bikini Softball Challenge.

Exactly! What is the difference? We were sliding around soaking wet in bikinis. I feel like she was attacking me as if I am this horrible person for being basically in a bikini.

And obviously, your image does not necessarily reflect your behavior.

It doesn’t. I feel like the picture doesn’t define me as a person at all. There are plenty of celebrities who take nude pictures in Playboy all the time and they are still classy and they are still conservative and they stay true to themselves. Just because the picture is sexy doesn’t mean I can’t be classy. Frank’s mom just seemed like a very mean person. The things she said to girls in the house and the things she was saying to me as I was leaving were just rude and disrespectful.

You didn’t seem to torn up in your exit interview, though.

I wasn’t upset about leaving because we didn’t connect besides him being attracted to me. I wasn’t going to sit there and be fake. Maybe we didn’t have enough time to get to know each other well enough for me to take it to that level. I was fine going home. I didn’t want to waste his time.

How is it that you’ve never had a boyfriend?

Through high school and even a little during college, I wasn’t a pretty girl. People would always tease me: “Oh you have dark skin, a big head, a big nose. You’re ugly.” People like Annie were my friends because they were weird and different. I kind of just did me. I didn’t have any type of body. I was skinny with no boobs, no butt, no curves, nothing. When I got into college I started to come into my own and become a young woman. I was a late bloomer.

What about after you blossomed, though?

I was seeing a guy on and off through college it was long distance. He was seeing other girls and doing his own thing and I really cared about him. We never made it official because of the distance and once I came back home from college I could never trust him. I guess that made me a little guarded. Maybe I don’t want to get my heart broken by a man. I have a lot of girlfriends who have been in physically abusive relationships so I am scared to get in a relationship. I do want to find love and I do want to be happy and I do want to get married and have babies. I guess I have to stop being so scared.

The obvious question, then, is why start looking for love on reality TV?

Frank also mentioned that. Why not? It’s a dating show. What better place to try to find my first boyfriend than on TV?

Were you interested in the exposure that comes along with reality TV?

I have always been a fan of reality television. I even did my senior exit paper on reality television in college. Of course everyone knows you are going to get exposure because of being on reality T, but I wanted to do it because it was fun. I’m working 9 to 5 and I’m tired doing the same thing day in and do out. So why not go on a reality television show? Why not find your first man on TV? Why not?

Well, because something could happen that leaves you dissatisfied with your portrayal.

Yeah, there is a risk of lies.

Are you happy you did the show?

I am. It was fun. I got to meet a lot of great girls and I had a great time. It was great experience and I would do it again.

What do you think of Frank today?

Up until maybe a week ago, I thought Frank was a decent guy. I actually reached out to him and called him and we spoke for about three hours talking about all different types of things. Then I find out he’s completely crazy. I guess it was the episode where I said something like Frank has to work for me too aired, and so he got angry with me talking all fast: “What the f*** do you think this is? This is my show, you just want exposure!” He’s completely different from how he is on the show. On the show he seems like a nice guy and a gentleman. The truth will come out soon enough when the other girls can express how crazy he is as well.

  2. Mark says:

    Jenny, you were my favorite girl in the house. They gave you a very bad edit. I wish you good luck in your future endeavors (and I wouldn’t mind reading your exit paper… that sounds very interesting!).

  3. chris says:

    steroids will do that to a guy.

  4. Amy says:

    Sorry but if ur not innocent don’t lie about it

  5. YungBolo says:

    Great interview. She’s very mature and understanding whereas a number of these girls would go on these interviews and rant about how much they hate the person that kicked them off. I hope to see her on another show sometime.

  6. FV0306 says:

    I think that Jenny did a very good Celebreality Interview and its okay to be sexy and classy.

  7. Rach says:

    Jenny is gorgeous, classy, and genuine.

  8. DeiaynciaCimone says:

    Amy Sorry Jenny never said she was innocent. She just not an ugly, desperate female like the remmaining brood at Frank’s house. Call it as it is. That picture was classier than what Frank had the girls in the day before. For the record I like Annie and Felicia looks like she should know better about being on the show.

  9. KristinaL.Love says:


  10. RealityTVAddict says:

    I don’t think she’s classy at all. When he chose Annie for a date, she commented that he could’ve choosed someone hotter but now she is saying she was like Annie at one time?! She’s not classy and basically she’s a `@`)(#^~**()+(%@_ She wasn’t on the show to meet Frank, she was on the show to get exposure which she got.

  12. Koco_goddess says:

    Its a shame that Frank let jenny go.. shes not a bad person.. im sure if he does a little research on the rest of the females in the house he’ll find WAYYYYY more then he bargained for… i dont blame her for not wanting to THROW herself all over a dude who jus finished slobbering down 15 more chicks.. thats wat “Classy women do”

  13. MsMaryMac says:

    Jenny was not on the show to find love! She was on the show for exposure!!! And i did not like her. she too sneaky! She kept telling frank give me more time to want to be with you and kiss you! LOL!But i don’t blame her for not kissing Frank! He had New York’s feet in his mouth!!! Frank is a BIG LOSER and he’s nasty! and i dont know why anyone would want to be with him!

  14. Bigmax says:

    Jenny was the only REAL girl in the house. I agree, you respected his parents house and didn’t throw yourself at him like some of the others. I never really cared for his mother, but his father was alright until this episode, he showed his true colors. Jenny be happy that you left when you did, or you would be in the basement with Frank. Stay strong sister and “you do you”!

  15. thetruthshallsetufree says:

  21. Elizabeth says:

    Wow. Frank is nutty. Hunh. Jenny seemed cool. Show is going to be a tad boring…because Jenny brought mystery to the show…you know it kept drawing you back episode after episode to see if you can figure it out. She is pretty and she doesn’t look at all like a tranny. I see we will always have haters. But then that’s how you know you are on top of your game. Peace.

  22. Bren says:

  23. Aries x0 says:

    Im really glad i got to read this (Interview w.Jenny) I as well thought that it was a Nude picture from th way they were making it out to be, and After reading this (if it’s true) Jenny is way to good for him. And as for frank, trashy girls are his Specialty thats why he was souped on New york (Tiffany) and she is nothing compared to jenny, far from her Level, i think he looked you up because you seemed to good to be true!

  24. bill quigley says:

    Im not into black women but this girl jenny was the hottest girl on the show. I found her super sexy. I wanted to see her drunk or get a little crazy. The photo of her was really tame in my eyes, you see photos like that in maxium magazine. Love you Jenny keep your head up maybe you will get a show. Your the bomb just give old Bill a call and we will go out for some Chinese food.

  25. Kristi English says:

    I love jenny! She’s my favorite! She represents a real woman. All the other girls are kissing him and acting slutty. She is acting like a lady and taking her time. I’m happy you got voted off because he doesnt deserve you! I understand everything your saying. I was teased in high school also. I developed late and now I am very sexy! So I too, took sexy pictures and if anyone were to judge me for that can kiss my a**! I’m sure from those 5 days on the show someone worth your while will come your way. Love ya boo!!!

  26. Jaime says:

    Jenny, I am sorry this situation was blown out of control and you were mistreated and misrepresented. It is incredibly sexy that you’ve never had a boyfriend (being as pretty as you are). The man you find will be one of the luckiest! God bless you, Jenny!

  27. mz kay says:

    why did they give frank a show!he dont even have a job why wouldnt they give him a show like ms new york had finding a need to find a job before you find love who will pay for the meal.i think the show is stupid to me he not even cute.and this stupid show going to make him think he sitting on top of the world.please and you see how ghetto his mom got with new york mom we didnt forget please we all know she aint got no manners. they paying him and his parents for doing this damn show that i hope dont glad your not on there anymore and you carry yourself well to be dealing with a guy thats not black with no job. hell you can go get a black man at least it’s a 80% chance he has a nice size package which will make up for him not having a

  30. melissa says:

    omg…i do not like jenny she doesn’t even show any attention plus that pic he don’t want someone like that

  31. susan maresca says:

    I finally read Jenny’s exit interview She calls me rude and disrespectful of her and other girls in the house This is totally untrue I had a very high opinion of Jenny and was shocked when I saw the picture not because it was an obscene photo it was not, but it showed me she misrepresented herself and wasn’t there for Frank but for her modeling career and by the way she was disrespectful to my husband and I when she left. I opened my home and my heart to her and didn’t even get a goodbye.

  32. nikkid says:

    jenny is so full of crap She wanted to be famous and promote her new flick thats called big black #^(())$_&!_^~)@ chics its all over the place she should be embarrassed . IS SO NASTY and why did she have to go after frank dont she know ray j is more her type

  33. Taylor says:

    All of the girls are models, i dont see why they singled Jenny out! I think its because shes black and beautiful and his parents are rasist!

  34. marvelous45 says:
