A word from Jenny (16 Photos)

We couldn’t have pulled this one off without the help of this adorable young woman. You’ll see in the coming days she’s as smart as she is sexy. Leo and I will now return to our bottles of Jim Beam and enjoy the rest of this wild ride…

Chive On,

    Fercrisakes lighten up, people. Yeah, I was a bit disappointed to be told it was a hoax, but … not only do I STILL think she's a HOPA, I now also think she's a pretty good model and actress. She had all the appropriate facial expressions down perfectly!

    Great hoax, great chick. And to all you people who are going to criticize me for saying she's a HOPA, get a life. Or a man. Goodonya, Elyse! Hope you do well!

  • Ben Tydears

    Correction … HPOA, not HOPA. Whatever, one hot and talented chick! BOOM BOOM

    it is a little pointless….

    What a waste of time and space. Proud to publish a hoax? Thanks for joining the ranks of people like, uh- THE BALOON BOY DAD! Stupid. All to write an egotist, self inflating Internet scheme about how hot you are. You’re not. And an actress? Funny, you suck. Maybe you ought to take your sucking and wannabe acting career to the porn industry, since they are all B fleet merchandise anyway! Cottage cheese thighs and a face not worth looking at twice, along with your mothers Jean shorts will make you go far. Just like everything these days, fake. Most every “reality tv show” is fake too. No wonder nobody is trusted anywhere.

    Bummer! I was SO happy to see girl power at its most vindictive. 🙂
    I'm sad that we only see it in a Hoax.
