In the recently aired episode, the beautiful attorney discussed her harrowing past with Steven. She explained, "I am, like, a victim of, like, sex trafficking. It happened six years ago, and we finally had a trial four years after. The judge came back in my favor. It was a $13 million judgment and 20-year sentencing. And so that was, like, the most rewarding thing ever." "I wouldn't be okay with myself if I didn't at least try to do something about it, because it was, like, I can't not do anything. And know in the back of my head, oh, they're probably gonna do this to like other women. 'Cause not only, like, stuff was put online. I mean, I was harassed," she added. 

Steven was surprised on hearing about Jennie's past but assured her that her past had no bearing on her future. He also praised her for her strength and dubbed her as a "pretty damn amazing woman."
