Anissa Gifford (September 15th, 1975) was born in Rising Hope Alabama. Her parents didn't have a lot of money growing up. She took a job at Castle Food N' Drug when she was 18 years old making $4.50/hour. It was there that she met James Gifford, and the two got married a year later. In 1996 they had a daughter together - Leila. In 2000 she was promoted to Assistant Manager at Castle. Anissa was offered a job modeling by Eric Renard, but she turned it down because she didn't think it'd be steady money. Anissa doesn't always have enough time for her daughter, a fact that she greatly regrets.
