Jessica Kinni was one my favorite girls on the second season of Rock Of Love. She is now doing many thing now including a new movie and many hosting amodeling gigs. She talks about her memories being on Rock of Love and admits she only did charm school for the money.
John Taylor: Hey, Jessica how are you?
Jessica Kinni: Hi John, I'm doing great, my birthday is this week so I am in an especially good mood!
John Taylor: You were best known for appearing on the 2nd season of "Rock of Love". What was your fondest memory being on the show?
Jessica Kinni: Wow, that's a really hard question to answer! The entire experience was really positive for me and I learned a lot about myself in the process. People tuning in really only saw all of the wild stuff on TV, but what they didn't get to see was how a lot of us became friends and bonded over the "wild ride" that we were on,and how on our down time we would just hang out with Bret and he would play his guitar for us. Those are the memories that I keep and am grateful for.
John Taylor: You were kinda like the underdog on the show, yet you made it far. I believe you made it to 4th place? did you expect to go that far on the show?
Jessica Kinni: It's funny, I remember walking into the house and having absolutely no idea what I was getting myself into, let alone expectations about how long I would last in the show. I was just there for the chance to get to know this really cool guy and I got that chance, so it was a great turnout for me.
John Taylor: Now was there anything that happened on the show that did not air on TV?
Jessica Kinni: Oops...I think I already answered that in the question above! Oh, I remember we were shooting over Thanksgiving and Bret brought in this AMAZING Thanksgiving dinner and we had a great time. That was really sweet of him and I don't think they showed it on TV. Bret was always really thoughtful of everyone and I feel like the audience didn't get to see enough of that side of him.
John Taylor: Do you still keep in touch with Bret Michaels or any of the girls from the show? On the show, you were kinda close with Megan. Do you still keep in touch with her?
Jessica Kinni: I don't get to keep in touch with much of the cast. I wish I did, but everyone is pretty split up all over the country doing different things. I hear from people every now and then and follow some of the gang on Twitter, but that's about it.
John Taylor: So despite being on the show, have you found love?
Jessica Kinni: Hahaha "despite" being on the show....my personal life has somehow managed to yield positive results.
John Taylor: You also appeared on The Rock Of Love: Edition of Charm School. What made you decide to join that show? because to me, you really didn't need charm school.
Jessica Kinni: One word "money" I'd like a quarter of a million dollars, just as much as the next girl.
John Taylor: Let's talk the present now. You have a new film coming out called "Mood Swings" Can you tell me what the movie is about?
Jessica Kinni: Yes, I am very excited! I can't say too much about it just yet, but I'm slated to play a wife who goes a little over the edge when she becomes pregnant and VERY hormonal! It's going to be a lot of fun :-D
John Taylor: Besides your new movie, what else have you been since being on VH1?
Jessica Kinni: Well, I am a hard working actress these days! I spend my days auditioning and I have been working with an amazing acting coach as well. I spend my time acting, modeling and hosting! In fact recently I have been doing special field correspondence work for the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for Emmys.com and Emmy Magazine! I've also been involved with some other really great projects that you can find on my IMDB page at www.imdb.me/JessicaKinni I just love to be creative, it is the force that drives me....that, and chocolate! Hahahahah
John Taylor: Would ever consider doing reality TV again?
Jessica Kinni: If there was a really cool project, I would definitely consider it, however I think what I really love, Reality TV-wise is hosting! If I was approached about hosting or doing correspondence for a Reality TV Show, that would be the perfect fit for me!
John Taylor: Is there anything else you would like to add?
Jessica Kinni: Thanks for interviewing me John, I have so many fond memories from my experiences on Reality TV and it's so much fun to reflect on where I have been, but I'm just as excited about where I am heading! VH1 has been so great to me and have always been so supportive. I can't wait to see what comes next!
