What Ever Happened to Jenna King?
The former 'Southern Charm' star traded South Carolina for California and dated a rock star.
Looking back at our shows, we often wonder about the people who've left. Where did they go when their moment in the Bravo spotlight was over? What are they up to now? Each week, we'll be looking into the lives of one of these familiar faces. Today, it's Jenna King from Southern Charm.
She was the aspiring fashion designer with ultra-short hair and much older boyfriend who tottered around Charleston, S.C., atop sky-high heels during the debut season of Southern Charm.
Jenna King left the show after just one season, but not before answered some burning questions during the cast's reunion special in April 2014—like how could she afford such a fabulous life? "I'm really good at rolling the dice playing Craps," she told Andy Cohen. Jenna also revealed that her closet full of pricey Christian Louboutins came courtesy of her property-developer beau Lou, and that they'd split after filming ended.
Jenna didn't return for Season 2. Instead, she left Charleston behind and moved to Los Angeles after her season ended. She also traveled the world, posting photos from trips to Belgium, Australia, Italy, France and more stunning locales.
She also moved on to a new man: In 2014, Jenna revealed she was dating Falling in Reverse singer Ronnie Radke, a heavily tattooed bad-boy rocker who'd served two years in prison for battery related to his role in a man's death.
They got matching zodiac tattoos on their hands, and embraced it when fans gave them the Brangelina and Bennifer treatment, christening them "RadKing" on social media. They also sported matching wild hairstyles. "So glad my boyfriend is my hairdresser," Jenna shared on Instagram after Ronnie helped her shave her head.
She and Ronnie eventually split, but Jenna's life is just as colorful now, thanks in part to her latest look: Her head is shaved except save for a long, platinum-blond swathe of braids sprouting from the top. Jenna's social media feeds are plastered with shots of her evolving look, as well as with photos and videos of her beloved itty-bitty dog, who she affectionately calls Rat.
