Meet Jennifer Davis, a new face on The Real Housewives of Dallas. Tall, beautiful, and ready to talk kombucha with the ladies! Jennifer has been turning heads in Dallas (and abroad) since the 1990’s when she was an International Model. Not content to be just another pretty face, she eventually moved to Los Angeles to work in PR. She worked with big brands such as Krispy Kreme, Tivo, and Slimfast. From there she enjoyed a stint in technology, and then finally at Sotheby’s Rodeo Drive before returning to her roots in Dallas.
Fast forward to 2021- she’s a mom and a leading realtor in Dallas. With a few exciting ventures debuting this year, we were excited to talk with her about juggling motherhood and business along with what her experience has been like working with the ladies on the show…
What does having influence and that responsibility mean to you?
The stakes are high when a person becomes an influencer. I feel obligated to be totally vulnerable. My ego whispers “Edit, polish, face app”….but my soul says “show all your warts so others can learn/relate/grow”.
What drew you to being on The Real Housewives of Dallas ? Tell us about your history and connection to the city?
My friend of 15 years and her husband, whom I grew up with, are on the Real Housewives of Dallas. Last summer at a dinner party, they asked me if I would be interested in being on the show. I said YES. Life is short. When opportunity knocks , always say YES. I have been a dallasite for 41 years. My mother’s side of the family lives in Dallas. I love this city. It’s clicky-but when the rubber meets the road…the city has your back. I LOVE DALLAS.
Being a mom/parent, had the ultimate influence, what rules are unbreakable in your household?
Don’t go to sleep angry, say please and thank you, say I love you, at least once a day; don’t hurt or disrespect the animals or other humans in this house. Say yes to life. It is an adventure.
What advice do you have for parents who are balancing work and life and a social life?
For me, it is easy to balance work and social life. Until my daughter is much older, she is the most important job that I have. She currently relies on me 100%, so it’s easy, not to want a social life right now. I wanted a baby for so long/ Now, that I have her – she IS the party. I do need to try harder to socialize, but with the global pandemic and mandatory lockdown.
How would you describe your personal style?
My personal style is Jessica Rabbit/Jackie O. NOT mutually exclusive.
Quick beauty tips for the mommy on the go?
Tinted BB cream with broad spectrum SPF. City lips lip gloss (huge pout). Nars concealer.
Per the last episode, what did your momma teach you we can share with our audience?
My momma taught me to be unapoligetically me, even if society doesn’t approve, or it gleems petty glares.. Take up the entire room, be bossy, experience the world-go with your gut and ignore people’s opinions. Be kind, treat your neighbor like yourself. Stand up for myself.
Strawberry, vanilla, or chocolate and why?
Strawberry. I’ll reveal it another time.
Favorite place to visit?
My parent’s beach house in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. I was definintly a mermaid in a past life….I am happiest next to ocean.
