Jaime Pressly

Jaime Elizabeth Pressly born on July 30th 1977 in Kinston North Carolina. I meant to mention this earlier on this month but got sidetracked. On the evening of January 5th 2011, Jaime was arrested for suspicion of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) in Santa Monica, California.
She is the daughter of Brenda Sue (née Smith) and James Liston Pressly. Jaime has two siblings: sister Jessica and brother James Liston Pressly.
Jaime attended Costa Mesa High School in California, where her mother had moved while her parents were going through the process of a divorce. She subsequently sought and succeeded in having herself legally emancipated from her parents at the age of 15 so she could attend a modeling job in Japan. Neither one of her parents could attend with her, so she had to be emancipated to go on her own.

I know her for her roles in such films as Can't Hardly Wait, Mortal Kombat, Not Another Teen Movie and Joe Dirt. Of course her role as Joy Turner is brilliant in "My Name is Earl" which she won a Primetime Emmy Award in 2007 for Oustanding Comedy Supporting Actress.
Friends for nine years since 1996, she started dating DJ Eric Calvo (aka DJ Eric Cubeechee) in 2004.
After Jaime became pregnant, the two became engaged in October 2006. She gave birth on May 11, 2007 at 7:31 a.m. in Cedars-Sinai Medical Center to their first child Dezi James Calvo. In a February 2007 interview on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Jaime said she wants the child to be bilingual (English/Spanish) to reflect Calvo's Cuban heritage.
Jaime told People magazine the name is part of a running joke, as Cuban-American Calvo does a Desi Arnaz impersonation, calling her "Luuucy" when he comes home at night. In November 2008 the couple split up.
Pressly said in a 2006 interview with Esquire magazine that she almost purchased a ticket for a flight on one of the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center on September 11th 2001, but decided not to take the flight because she felt it left too early in the morning. In July 2009, Pressly became engaged to entertainment lawyer Simran Singh. Then they got married on September 26,th 2009 at the Dick Clark Estate. Guests, including Pressly's two-year-old son Dezi James, attended the ceremony on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
She was also ranked #8 in Stuff magazine in the "102 Sexiest Women in the World" issue in 2002.
