PAPER Magazine Throwback story!

Here’s a PAPER Magazine’s old article posted on April 10, 1998 with Jaime as one of the “beautiful people”.

 

Nineteen-year-old fashion veteran James King is back in the saddle after a six-month hiatus prompted by the death of her boyfriend, photographer Davide Sorrenti. “Things started getting really hectic,” she admits. “I started so young and I thought it was good to go back home and do normal things for a while. I came back with a lot more energy and a much greater appreciation for what I do.” King, whose real name is Jamie (“I’m named after Jamie Summers, the Bionic Woman,” she clarifies), came to New York from Omaha, Nebraska, at 14. She now believes that girls under 18 are too immature to stomach the modeling lifestyle. “You’re not treated like a kid in this industry,” she complains. “Adults need to start taking responsibility for these children that they’re bringing in.” King can be seen in ads for Bebe, doing fashion interviews on MTV and taking acting classes. She claims the demise of the supermodel has awoken her to the reality of life after the catwalk. “I’m trying to use modeling as a vessel to get me somewhere else,” she explains.

Hart of Dixie Has Been Cancelled

Rumors that Hart of Dixie would be canceled began even before the fourth season started and while there has been no official confirmation yet, it seems like the show has been canceled. This was confirmed on twitter by show creator,  Leila Gerstein, and Scott also posted a tweet about it (Who later deleted the tweet).

The series finale will air on March 27.

Folks wondering why #HartOfDixie got canned? Simple numbers game folks. Ratings still matter and dictate wins and losses. You have to WATCH.

We are still waiting for an official confirmation from The CW.

Edit: Here’s what Jaime’s posted on Instagram a few days ago.

From Lemons first entrance, to the last 2 final series episodes, I shall take my final bow. Farewell, my beloved Bluebell. It has been the best 4 years of my life, giving my heart and soul to this role & to our dear fans of Hart of Dixie. To Leila Gerstein you are my idol, a role model for every woman, a true storyteller, a BRILLIANT show runner & mother, you baffle me with your ability- you gave me a character that will never leave me because you saw that she was in me, that I could make her human, vulnerable, a punch in the face lovable Lemon. You let me take her and make her my own, knowing from the beginning that that is what I would do- make her so real it hurt because she just wanted so much to love and be loved. Thank you my dear cast & crew- we were on some ride or die shit- through the laughter, tears, pushes and pulls- how we have grown through each other so beautifully. To @joshschwartz76 & @TheFakeEmpire team- you are so NOT a fake empire- you lead me to the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow and actually touch it. I wished for that my entire Midwestern childhood. Zoe, isn’t it funny how enemies are just one in the same? Rachel B- you know I did this show to be close to you buddy, I love you. @cw_network, Mark Pedowitz, Lori Openden – there are no words. #ClassAct To our fans- You have lifted me and given me a gift greater than my wildest dreams. I thank you. I thank you. I thank you. And I love you more than words can ever express. And Lemon, you taught me so much- break the rules- be naughty for the ones you care about- be the BEST FUCKING FRIEND because loyalty requires shenanigans sometimes and being a best friend means that sometimes we act stupid, senseless, blinded by what looks like selfishness but is actually the purest love and wanting the best for that other person- tradition is great if it means being true to yourself, if not let it go gracefully or with the middle finger- you don’t have to rely on the approval or acceptance of others to love yourself, just love yourself because you are love, be a feminist & the only thing close to being “perfect” is following your heart. We are one. #HartofDixeForever Xx

Daily Mail Interview

In an exclusive interview for the Daily Mail published, on February 25, Jaime talked about the release of her new music video for fashion label Grace MMXIII, her friendship with Lena Dunham and how she helped her to speak out about her fertility issues, about her upcoming music debut and much more.

You can read the full interview below!

Pregnant actress Jaime King has revealed that it was her close friend, and fellow TV star, Lena Dunham who gave her the courage to speak out about her awful struggle to conceive her first child.
Speaking to Daily Mail Online about the upcoming release of her new music video for fashion label Grace MMXIII, in which she showcases her impressive vocal talents alongside those of Oscar-nominated composer J. Ralph, the 35-year-old explained that it was only after reading about Lena’s own struggles with endometriosis in her book Not That Kind of Girl, that she felt able to open up about her own fertility issues.
‘Lena Dunham was a big factor in my speaking out,’ she said. ‘As a dear friend who spoke out in her book about endometriosis, she helped give me the courage to ponder what kind of impact I wanted to make on this world. And I thought, “Hey, you have a big platform to help other women and couples.”

‘I know it’s not a sexy topic, I know that it’s extremely private and vulnerable, but at the same time I went through years of silent suffering because no one speaks about these things or the symptoms and effects of endometriosis.’
Jaime, who earlier this month revealed that she is expecting her second child with husband Kyle Newman, added that she hopes her decision to speak out about her fertility struggles will help her fans to see past the perceived perfection of her ‘Hollywood life’.
People think I live a picture perfect life, and it started to upset me that I could possibly, in some way be presenting a curated, false idea of what my life is to my fans and to the world,’ she said.
‘Because that’s false, it’s a lie. In Hollywood we put out this totally unrealistic idea of a glamorous life because that’s a part of the illusion that the public and system wants to see. A way to escape.
‘However, why can we not do both? Be beautiful and inspiring yet be honest and support others on their journeys. If one more person can feel supported – then I will sacrifice any level of vanity and privacy for that.
‘I will sacrifice anything to help educate and bring awareness to something so common, yet so oddly taboo. Because it shouldn’t be. It’s not about infertility per se – it’s about the disease of PCOS and endometriosis and the prevention and care of that.’
When it comes to setting an example for other mothers-to-be, Jaime, who is currently starring as restaurant owner Lemon Breeland in hit CW series Hart of Dixie alongside former OC star Rachel Bilson, could not be a better role model.

Jaime King released a new music video and song with J.Ralph

Jaime King released a new music video and song with J.Ralph

Here’s a new song by Jaime and J.Ralph called “31 Seconds”. The film was co-directed by Jaime and Kyle Newman in collaboration with London label Grace MMXIII. Jaime is also working on her own album which, she teased, will be available soon. We are super excited about this!

Here’s an article published by WWD. Check out below the official video and some stills. Screen captures will be added soon.

 

Model-turned-actress Jaime King is adding a new discipline to her repertoire — music. King has collaborated with J. Ralph, her friend and an Oscar-nominated composer and producer, to duet on a haunting, melodic track called “31 Seconds.” To launch the project, King and her director husband Kyle Newman have together directed a noir-ish film featuring King and Ralph, in which King wears languid dresses from London label Grace MMXIII’s resort 2015 collection.

King told WWD that she’d harbored ambitions to work with Grace’s founders Erik Torstensson and Jens Grede (who are also behind Frame Denim and the Saturday Group) “since the minute I met them.” “Grace epitomizes what fashion should be: forward thinking, chic [and] wearable,” King said. “Jens and Erik are my kind of tribe and I have not felt that way in a long time.”

For Torstensson’s part, he was impressed by the fact that King “can really sing.” And he underlined that King and Newman had free reign over the project. Of the film, King said that she and Newman had aimed to “create something elegant and intriguing — a filmic representation of Grace’s clothing.” Layered over the shadowy shots of King and Ralph are abstract images of blossoming flowers, billows of smoke and water droplets, which King compared to “painting with film.”

As to her future musical plans, King said that she and Ralph have been “quietly” working on music together for some time, and will soon release their first EP. King noted that she and the composer both see themselves as “lyricists [who] write untraditionally, essentially turning poetry into a structured song.”

Jaime’s “The Pardon” Bought by Monterey Media

Jaime’s “The Pardon” Bought by Monterey Media

Monterey Media has acquired U.S. and Canadian rights to “The Pardon,” starring Jaime King in the true story of the only woman ever executed in the state of Louisiana.

In the film directed by Tom Anton, the “Hart of Dixie” actress stars opposite John Hawkes as Toni Jo Henry, who was tried three times and executed in Louisiana in 1942 at the age of 26.

Henry had been a prostitute and addict married to a boxer, who was sentenced to prison in 1940. She teamed with the boxer’s partner (played by Hawkes) in an ill-fated attempt to break her husband out of jail.

“I was fascinated when filmmaker Tom Anton brought us this lovingly re-created and compelling story,” said Scott Mansfield of Monterey Media. “Since 1903, 50 women have ever been executed in the U.S. By comparison, since 1976, almost 1,400 men have been put to death.”

Monterey Media plans a late spring release.

The deal was negotiated between Mansfield and Shoreline Entertainment’s Sam Eigen and Brian Sweet.

Jaime King for Sapling
Plus, check out below the information posted on the official Sapling Child’s website.

COMING SOON

From the sprawling skies of Nebraska where I grew up, to the seascape of California where I now live comes the inspiration for this collection – childhood wonder.

Inspired by the Japanese art of storytelling through printmaking, I wanted to tell a story reflecting my childhood dreams while gazing at the endless skies of Nebraska, and of my son, James Knights’ childhood basking in the Californian sun and looking upon the same stars that I adored as a child.

It is a story of dreams that were created where land, sky and spirit meet. The collection is inspired by what I hold dear, but it is a universal tale about all dreams.
I hope that you and your child can enjoy our story together.

Jaime King. x
