Inspired by season 1 of ‘Betrayal’ the podcast, Hulu’s ‘Betrayal: The Perfect Husband’ can only be described as a first-hand account of television producer Jennifer Faison’s real-life fairytale gone terribly wrong. After all, it’s where she truly opens up about the way her husband, Spencer Herron, led a double life for years — one as a kind partner as well as an educator and the other as a sexual predator. So now, if you wish to learn the details of her personal experiences both while and after he was a crucial part of her life, along with her current whereabouts, we’ve got you covered.
Who is Jenifer Faison?
It was back when Jenifer was pursuing her Bachelor’s in Communications from Berry College in Georgia that she first came across Spencer, just for them to quickly fall head over heels in love. However, since he was a year her senior, she decided to call it quits once he graduated as she didn’t ever want to hold herself back, only for them to reconnect over two decades later thanks to Facebook. That’s actually when the hopeless romantic and renowned producer thought she’d finally found the perfect man, compelling her to tie the knot with him following a brief yet treasured courtship.
For the ensuing seven years, Jennifer genuinely believed she had a near-perfect life — she had a doting husband plus a successful career even though she’d relocated from New York to Georgia for this love. The fact her beau used to leave her little post-it notes every morning, served as a high school video producer educator, was an Air Force band member, as well as ran a wine bar alongside her for two years also reiterated her trust in his goodness. Yet everything came crashing down on June 1, 2018, as she returned to their shared Acworth home from some work in Atlanta, just to find it searched with a warrant and him getting arrested by two local officers.
Turns out, Spencer had repeatedly sexually assaulted a student, a fact Jenifer had a lot of trouble comprehending until she uncovered his philandering, with affairs dating back to the week they married. From close friends to strangers and from mere acquaintances to neighbors, her husband had explicit liaisons with everybody, all the while allegedly gaslighting them to justify his ways. He seemingly didn’t want his wife to discover the dark reality or the extent of his betrayal, which is why his (often simultaneous) infidelities were reportedly fueled by manipulation and pathological lies.
Where is Jenifer Faison Now?
“Spence was the last person who I ever would have guessed would have taken advantage of a kid, and I think anybody else who knew him would have said the same thing,” Jenifer Faison once said in a press release for the ‘Betrayal’ podcast. “Could it be true that this man I loved was a sexual predator? I realized that afternoon that life as I knew it would never be the same. The future that we planned was gone, and that was the last time I had seen him.” In other words, not only did she and Spencer divorce in 2019, but it also took her a while to get over the devastation caused by his actions.
Coming to her current standing, from what we can tell, Jenifer continues to reside in Acworth, Georgia, to this day, where she happily serves as an Executive Producer at Glass Entertainment Group — the company behind the podcast. She actually, unsurprisingly, prefers to keep her private life well away from the spotlight these days, yet we do know she continues to thrive within the entertainment industry and has previously worked at Bravo TV, Big Table Media, and A+E, among many other big names. It thus comes as no surprise she has producer credits in 28 incredible shows over the past two decades, including ‘Judge Judy,’ ‘Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,’ ‘Jersey Shore,’ ‘Storage Wars,‘ ‘Celebrity Wife Swap,’ and ‘Backyard Blowout.’ Apart from ‘Betrayal,’ her latest project is HGTV’s ‘Build It Forward.’
