Jennifer Ringley, aka Jennicam, offered a 24×7 webcam feed of her life for seven years. The demise of Jennicam on New Year’s Day in 2004 was blamed on PayPal cancelling all her subscriptions for violating their no nudity clause.
Many believe that Jennifer Ringley grew tired of the constant exposure because she disappeared from public view after her live web feed ended.
Today, Jennifer’s a civil servant in Sacramento, California leading a boring life as a social services case worker and has no interest in reliving her online glory days.
Ringley says, “I really am enjoying my privacy now. I don’t have a web page; I don’t have a MySpace page. It’s a completely different feeling, and I think I’m enjoying it.”
So, here’s a recap of Jennicam’s glory days when Jennifer Ringley was described as an earthy, ditzy blonde who was badly in need of a life.
These are some screenshots from back in the day followed by some videos of her appearances on tv shows discussing her voyeuristic web cam life of being famous for being online 24×7.

As you can see, Jennifer Ringley certainly gave her fans an intimate glimpse into the daily life of a regular person, years before The Truman Show popularized the concept.
Personal drama on her webcam peaked in July, 2000 when she stole her best friend’s boyfriend. Amazingly, her friend Courtney found out about Dex and Jennifer hooking up while watching Jennicam!
Salon magazine described it as “In just a few weeks, a trio of characters has managed to play out the antics of an entire season’s worth of “Dynasty.”
So, obviously people felt they were getting their money’s worth…lol!
