Shanice Henderson Parents: Jerry Henderson And Karla Mikkelson

Shanice Henderson is the life of the party. She knows the hottest spots in town and has been a Playboy Club bunnies with her Summer House: Martha’s Vineyard co-stars Jordan and Jasmin. But as much as she likes to party, there’s someone she’d instead share a peaceful dinner with — her parents!

So, who are they? Keep scrolling to find out all about Shanice Henderson’s parents.

Summer House: Who Are Shanice Henderson Parents?

Shanice Henderson was born to her parents, Jerry Henderson and Karla Mikkelson. They are her biggest fans and her number-one supporters. No wonder they were elated when their daughter was chosen to be a part of the exclusive Black Entrepreneurs cast on Summer House: Martha’s Vineyard to represent the Black community and to show Black Excellence.

Showing support, Shanice’s father Jerry took to his FB on March 30, 2023, to share the show’s trailer featuring his daughter.

The Summer House spinoff premiered on May 7, 2023, and it featured only Black entrepreneurs sharing space during the hottest months of the year. Obviously, this meant a lot of relationship drama, friendship scuffles, love triangles, and more!

“If you don’t know, Black excellence is Martha’s Vineyard, and Martha’s Vineyard is Black excellence,” a cast says in the trailer. And she couldn’t be truer. Martha’s Vineyard actually has a long history of hosting Black vacationers, and it was one of the first beach destinations where African Americans could vacation and purchase a property.

As the cameras roll on, viewers noticed that Shanice was really close with fellow female castmates Jasmine Cooper, Bria Fleming, and Jordan Emanuel. On top of that, the quintessential party girl’s search for her future husband was also quite intriguing to watch.

On camera, she said that she was healing from her last relationship and working through attachment issues. However, she also mentioned she has extremely high standards when it comes to dating. No wonder, she did not seem to have already met the one she was looking for at the time of writing this article. Or maybe she was just asked to not breathe a word.
