Gone Too Soon

coolio_on_jenny_jonesCoolio appeared on my talk show with his son, who was following in his dad’s footsteps in music. As big a star as Coolio was, he was really down to earth and just a really nice guy. I’m so sorry to hear that he passed away unexpectedly yesterday at 59 years old. Gone too soon.

R.I.P. Ivana Trump

Ivana Trump on Jenny Jones

She was younger than I am. Ivana Trump passed away today at the age of 73. She was a guest on my show in the 90s and the audience was thrilled to see her so glamorous and loaded with bling! She was already divorced from Donald at the time and engaged to another man. Ivana was a great guest, very forthcoming, and was happy to sign autographs after the show. RIP, lovely lady.

Sad Loss of a Good Man

Bob Saget with Jenny Jones

Bob Saget was everything you have seen written about him since he suddenly passed away this week. He was simply one of the nicest people you could meet. I had the good fortune to be his opening act when we were both touring the comedy clubs in the early 1980s. Along with everyone else who ever knew him, I’m so sorry and still shocked at his sudden passing this week. May he rest in peace.

🎄 My Christmas Poem 🎄

It’s 2021 and Santa got woke
Saying he regrets some things that he spoke
“Ho Ho Ho” he will utter no more
Since one woman accused him of calling her a whore.

“He sees you when you’re sleeping…”
Is a phrase not to spout.
It seems the very idea
Was freaking people out.

He no longer asks if you’ve been naughty or nice
It got Santa in trouble and he’s paying a price
Seems he kept a secret list of naughty co-eds
And that did not sit well with the Feds.

Santa got a lawyer and then he cut a deal.
He rolled on the elves. S**t got real!
They were stealing candy canes and eating them too.
Now there are cameras, watching everything they do.

So things are back on track, good news for me and you.
I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy 2022. 🎉

I’m 75 Today

Jenny-Jones-at-75

I’m 75 today, thought I looked good & strong

But everyone seems bent on proving me wrong.

I shop for my groceries and feel like a star

Then someone says, “Do you need help to your car?”

At the nursery I got plants and am ready to pay

He says, “Lucky for you it’s senior discount day!”

I tried on some shoes at the mall I could wear

Salesgirl said, “My grandmother has the very same pair.”

We’re all getting older – this is not big news

So eat well, laugh often, and wear comfortable shoes.

I survived a pandemic so I can survive the scrutiny of posting an un-retouched photo taken on my 75th birthday. And I vow not to retouch the one I post when I turn 80!

R.I.P. Larry King

I was thrilled when I was invited to be interviewed by Larry King.  I had just created my new “Girls’ Night Out” comedy show for women only but I never expected to be talking to this legendary talk show host. Rest in peace, Mr. King.

Happy New Year, everyone! It was a challenging year that 2020, but I did learn a few things along the way.

1. I finally know what color my hair is. 💇‍♂️

2. I should have invested in jigsaw puzzles. 🧩

3. Cleaning my own house is rewarding. 🧹

4. I should have bought a smaller house. 🏠

5. Ten months of 24/7 with my husband and no one was arrested. It turns out we really like each other. 💏

~ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ~

I wish everyone a happy and healthy New Year.

A Birthday Present From YouTube

Jenny Can CookJenny Jones Youtube VideosI never expected anything like this! When I made my cooking videos, it was just a hobby. I love to cook and just wanted to share my recipes in case some of my fans might be interested. I knew a lot of people didn’t even cook but it was still fun. I watched as the number of views continued to grow and my videos were soon discovered by the entire world. It was international! Comments and questions came in from 200 countries (where they use the metric system – I never planned for that).

Then the corona virus came and the whole world was quarantined at home and had to cook, and bake bread. My recipes are simple and they always turn out so people who have never cooked before and needed to learn started watching and they had questions. A lot of questions. I want to help and I try to answer as many as I can but it’s impossible to keep up. I’m doing the best I can so please understand if I don’t answer your question.

As timing would have it, the millionth subscriber signed up on my birthday today. Now that is a birthday gift I never could have predicted but it makes me so happy because it means that my little home videos are helping people eat healthy home cooked meals and knowing I’m making a difference is the best gift I could have received.
