Since the show debuted, Jackie says she's heard from thousands of women who say they have girl crushes on her. "I was in Mexico having dinner, and a woman in her mid-30s came up to me crying and shaking and told me that she was in love with me, literally. And then pointed out her husband and her two teenage daughters and says: 'Oh, he knows about it. It's fine,'" Jackie says. "So that's kind of what I get. The acceptance of the husband, it, I think, gives them permission to explore being attracted to me."
But this isn't new for Jackie—she says straight women have always liked her. "I have to think because I sort of am [on] the cusp there. I have the right balance of masculinity and femininity that is appealing to straight women."
