bio

Jaime Elizabeth Pressly (born July 30, 1977) is an American actress and model. She is best known for playing Joy Turner on the NBC sitcom My Name Is Earl, for which she was nominated for two Emmy Awards (winning one) as well as a Golden Globe Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award. She has also appeared in films such as Joe DirtDOA: Dead or Alive andI Love You, Man.

Pressly was born in Kinston, North Carolina, the daughter of Brenda Sue (née Smith), a dance instructor, and James Liston Pressly, a car salesman. She has two siblings: sister Jessica and brother James Liston Pressly, Jr. She spent 11 years studying gymnastics and dancing.

Pressly attended Costa Mesa High School in California, where her mother had moved while her parents were going through a divorce. By age 14, she had appeared on her first cover (‘Teen Magazine) and had become the official spokesmodel for the International Cover Model Search and soon after began to get recognition for modeling in the USA, as well as in Italy and Japan. Pressly subsequently sought and succeeded in having herself legally emancipated from her parents at the age of 15 so she could travel to Japan as neither of her parents could make the trip, so she had to be emancipated to go on her own.

A family legend from Pressly’s grandmother claims they are distant relatives of singer Elvis Presley, though the story has not been proven.

Friends since 1996, she started dating DJ Eric Calvo (a.k.a. DJ Eric Cubeechee) in 2004. After Pressly became pregnant, the two were engaged in October 2006. Pressly 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, Pressly said she wants the child to be bilingual (English/Spanish) to reflect Calvo’s Cuban heritage. Pressly told People magazine the name is part of a running joke, as Cuban-American Calvo does a Desi Arnaz impersonation, calling Pressly “Luuucy” when he comes home at night. In November 2008 the couple announced their separation.

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 11, 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. They married on September 26, 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. On January 21, 2011, Pressly filed for divorce from Singh, citing irreconcilable differences.

Pressly was arrested in Santa Monica, California on the night of January 5, 2011 for suspicion of driving under the influence, a charge to which she eventually pleaded no contest and received three years of informal probation.
