Elyse Porterfield, a.k.a. “Jenny”, “Whiteboard Jenny” and “Jenny DryErase” from the job-quit hoax posted on The Chive

Elyse Porterfield, Whiteboard Jenny, and Internet History

I came across a blast-from-the-past from a half-decade ago: my posts on Elyse Porterfield, who was the actress behind the “Whiteboard Jenny” hoax.

Her Old OfficialElyse.com website is dead and gone (never having gotten off the ground in the first place) but she’s alive and well on Twitter and Instagram.

If you’re in Colorado, you can even buy a house from her; her real estate bio is proud to note that she’s recognizable from the “Dry Erase Board hoax”

Elyse Porterfield got married?

Wow, this is one of those “time flies” kinds of things.  Anyone remember “Whiteboard Jenny” — the “15 minutes of fame” girl who supposedly quit her job by writing a series of notes to her boss on a hand-held dry-erase board?  That was actress Elyse Porterfield, who’s now Elyse Anderson after having gotten married last March.  Belated congratulations, Elyse!

Whiteboard Jenny didn’t quit!

It’s old news now that “Jenny” who took a dry-erase marker to a white board and quit working for her boss “Spencer” was a hoax by the people at The Chive.

But who really is Elyse Porterfield?

ABC News has a nice story about her:

  • 22 years old
  • Colorado native
  • Move to L.A. in June 2010
  • A “featured extra” in the movie Project X (on the set July 16th according to her Twitter account)

It’s pretty common knowledge that she was named an Angelina Jolie lookalike by People Magazine last January.

She also has a Facebook page and a Twitter account

And alas, guys, I’m guessing she has a boyfriend — or at least seems pretty cozy with Matt Anderson (who, as of this writing, has a photo of himself with her as his Facebook profile photo)

Maybe he’s just a cousin or neighbor something… but assuming the Matt Anderson she went on vacation with is the same Matt on Twitter who she calls “my baby” I’m thinking the rest of you guys are going to need to cool your jets…

Does that help?
