Jaime Lynn Pressly (born July 30, 1977) is an American model

(a used car salesman who also ran a chain of laundries) and Brenda
Sue Smith (a classical dance instructor); she has a sister, Jessie.
Pressly spent 11 years studying gymnastics and dancing.
By the time she was 14, she was already the spokesperson for her
modeling agency, "International Cover Model Search" and
had begun to gain recognition for modeling in the United States,
as well as in Italy and Japan. Pressly attended Costa Mesa High
School in California, where she lived with her mother while her
parents were in the process of a divorce. She subsequently had herself
legally emancipated from her parents at the age of 15.
One persistent rumor is that Pressly married a man named Brodie
Mitchell in 1998. Pressly, who has never married, has stated she
has heard of Mitchell but does not know him. Mitchell apparently
has made enough claims about being married to Pressly that some
sources have reported it as fact.

Poison Ivy. She starred in the 1997 sequel, Poison Ivy: The New
Seduction. In 1999, Pressly was cast as the promiscuous dancer "Audrey"
on the television show, Jack and Jill.
Pressly starred in the independent film Poor White Trash, playing
scheming gold-digger Sandy Lake. She subsequently appeared in a
number of widely released films, including Not Another Teen Movie
(playing a stereotypical high school cheerleader) and Torque, as
a crazed motorcycle-riding criminal.
