Jaime Pressly-Joy Turner-My Name Is Earl

The next beautiful woman from "My Name Is Earl" is Joy Farrah Darville/Hickey/Turner, played by Jaime Pressly.

Jaime was born on July 30, 1977 in Kinston, North Carolina (my home state).
She spent 11 years studying gymnastics and dancing, and by fourteen she was the spokeswoman for her modeling agency, "International Cover Model Search".
Jaime was legally emancipated from her parents at the age of 15.
In 1997, she starred in the film Poison Ivy: The New Seduction.
In 1998 she played the assassin Mika in the TV action series Mortal Kombat: Conquest (Anyone remember that? Kristanna Loken, Sung Hi Lee and Angelica Bridges were on the series as well) .
Jaime modeled, showed up in magazines, and continued to appear in TV shows and movies until she landed the part of Joy in "My Name Is Earl".
For her part on Earl, she has been:
Nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress - Comedy Series in 2006
Nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress in 2007
Nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series in 2006
Nominated for a Satellite Award for Best Supporting Actress - Series, Miniseries or Television Film in 2007
And won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress - Comedy Series in 2007

Although I think the whole cast on the show is great, Joy is especally fun to watch.
Maybe because I really do know people that are not that far away from her character.

And since last time I put in a video with Nadine doing some martial arts action, check out Jaime in a fight scene from "Dead or Alive"
