Involvement with the Wests Edit

Rita West returned to her home from vacation to find Jeanette in her bed, and chased her out of the house.
Rita later confronted Jeanette's mother Trish at their dairy, but Trish defended her daughter. As revenge for the stolen goods, Eric, Falani and Sparky broke into the dairy. Jeanette helped them steal items and went to party with the boys. She was introduced to their friend Wolf West and the pair had sex.
Jeanette started dating Wolf, but Wolf later dumped her, after the murder of Evan Lace. He later met and was immediately attracted to her younger sister, Cheryl. By the time Jeanette found out, Cheryl was pregnant. Jeanette got very upset and started to despise her sister. When Cheryl and Wolf's baby Helena West was stillborn, Jeanette laughed at Cheryl and said it was her own fault for stealing her boyfriend.
