Before the Series
Renee had seen Nathan before at other Basketball parties. Later, she went to another party and saw him the night afterwards passed out drunk. At the same party, she became pregnant after a one-night stand.
Renee somehow attended Nathan Scott's son Jamie's birthday party, where she took a picture of them posing together. She then used his and a photo from the party she got pregnant as well as an ultrasound of her baby to try and blackmail the Scotts. She at first offered that they pay her off to stop her going public with her story but they refused, so she sold her story and it became national news. At a Clothes over Bro's fashion show she spoke to Haley telling her first how Nathan had used her; like he did to Haley but then that they loved each other; this caused Haley to slap Renee just as the a photo was taken of them. Afterwards she filed charges for assault and Haley was sent to jail. Renee spoke to Haley at jail telling her about phone calls between Nathan and Renee; these caused Haley to consider paying Renee but she didn't so instead she appeared on Dan Scott's talk show claiming her story until Dan brought out a lie machine test saying that she was indeed pregnant with Nathan's child. Until Dan showed the audience it was tampered with and Renee finally admitted that Nathan wasn't the father of her baby nor had they ever slept together.
Renee had a one-night stand and became pregnant; she either didn't know who the father was or couldn't get him to help her. This prompted her to blackmail basketball player Nathan Scott after seeing him drunk at the same party she got pregnant. She claimed they had been have an affair and even told his wife Haley that they were in love, as she did things Haley wouldn't. However, it was soon proven she was lying.
- It is unknown what career Renee had but she didn't earn enough to support her child which lead to her trying to get money from the Scott family.
