Up-and-coming country music superstar Jelly Roll and his wife Bunnie Xo, who’s made quite the name for herself with her Dumb Blonde Podcast, are one of the most interesting couples in country music.
The former rapper-turned-country star, whose real name is Jason DeFord, has spoken openly about his history with addiction, as well as his time in and out of jail before turning his life around to become one of the biggest up-and-coming names in country music.
But his wife has quite the interesting – and impressive – story herself.
Bunnie is the host of the Dumb Blonde Podcast, where she’s talked extensively about her time as a high-end escort in Las Vegas before settling down with Jelly Roll and his children and transitioning to her new career as a podcaster and social media influencer.
Together they’ve become quite the power couple. And recently they teamed up to make a final dream come true for one woman who’s battling cancer.
In a clip posted by the James Bess Foundation, Suzanne Durham of Nashville reveals that she has stage four cancer and that she has less than five months to live.
After the event, Bunnie shared her thoughts on the special evening:
“It was Chicken Soup for the Soul and everything I needed in that moment. God really works in mysterious ways, because just seeing this woman that has been given five months to live, who has spent her entire life trying to help other people…even her last dying wish, she wanted her friends to be there to be able to experience this with her and she was just so happy that she could give back to her friends that were in recovery and people that she helped in recovery when she got sober. And man, that’s what life is all about.
We never know when our last breath on earth is here. And it’s just like, if you want to waste your time spreading toxicity and dwelling on things that don’t f*cking matter and don’t inspire people, I would much rather inspire people than impress people. I want to leave here with people being like, ‘Dude. She touched my life. She helped me out of a dark spot.’
That’s what I want to do. And that’s what I live for. I don’t care what anybody has to say about me. If they like me, if they don’t like me, cool. Don’t care.
Cause you know what? If Suzanne was given five months to live and she chose to live her last five months inspiring people, that alone is enough motivation for me to want to do the same.”
Sounds like it was a pretty special night for everybody.
