At age 14, Jones, accompanied by her parents, moved from Jackson to New York. At 17, Jones was encouraged to pursue an acting and modeling career, subsequently living in London, Boston, New York City and Los Angeles. She was a high school homecoming queen and a varsity cheerleader.

In 2004 Jones earned a BBA degree in design and management from Parsons School of Design.[1] Jones completed a study abroad program at The University of Westminster in London, England and studied her JD at Mississippi College School of Law.

Jones starred in the scripted/reality hybrid series Anchorwoman,[3] premiering on the Fox Broadcasting network August 22, 2007. Jones was cast as the principal role of Anchorwoman.

Some journalists voiced outspoken criticism of the scripted 30-day broadcast-news stunt at a small Tyler, Texas television station. Jones went on to interview with Bill O'Reilly on The O'Reilly Factor. The show was canceled from the network after airing two back to back episodes. The debut scored 2.0 rating on fast nationals, and reported to have 2.7 million viewers overall.[4]
