A lot of people were surprised to learn about Jenna's Southern heritage. And a few snarky pundits have commented that she's been trying to hide her past - but nothing could be further from the truth: Jenna assures me that she is truly proud of her roots (natural blonde, BTW). After all, many of America's most famous personalities hail from Florida, like River Phoenix, Carrot Top and Ted Bundy. It's known as the Sunshine State because it shines so brightly from its many stars.
Others have asked why there's no trace of twang in Jenna's voice. That's purely a reflection of her professionalism. After many years of stage and screen work (including demanding roles in "The Rural Juror" and "Take My Hand"), an actress of Jenna's caliber is called upon to effect any number of dialects - including none at all. Of course, her drawl has been known to surface on occasion. If you've ever had the pleasure of seeing her after a dozen or so Apple Mojito-tinis at Hef's New Year's pay-per-view after-party, you'll know there's still a Southern belle that gets rung every now and then.
You Floridians should also know that Jenna's hoping to make a swing through St. Augustine as part of the Ponce de Leon Botox festival in the fall. We'll let you know.
