Music Career

Manning auditioned for The WB reality show "Popstar" in 2001, and two years later, Taryn and her brother formed the musical duo Boomkat. The band signed a deal with DreamWorks Records in 2002 and released the album "Boomkatalog.One" in 2003. Boomkat's first single, "The Wreckoning," topped the "Billboard" Hot Dance Club Play chart. After being dropped by DreamWorks Records, Boomkat released the album "A Million Trillion Stars" online in 2008; it was later released on Little Vanilla Records in March 2009. Manning began working on a solo album in September 2009, and she performed her first single, "So Talented," on "Melrose Place" that year. As a solo artist, Taryn has released the 2012 album "Freedom City" and more than a dozen singles, including "Spotlight" (which was featured on "Hawaii Five-0"), "Roaming Unicorn," and "Curiosity." In 2019, she released the singles "Chains," "The Light," and "Bring Me Back To You," followed by "Time Wasted" in 2020.

Personal Life

Taryn became engaged to musician Anne Cline in June 2021, and they split up two months later. In October 2012, Manning was arrested after she assaulted Holly Hartman, her personal assistant/makeup artist. Holly, who lived with Taryn at the time, declined to press charges, and the following month, a judge granted an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal on the terms that Manning completed one day of community service and exhibited good behavior for six months. Taryn was accused of attacking Hartman again in 2016, and though Holly filed for a restraining order, she was denied because of jurisdictional issues.

In November 2014, Manning was arrested for making criminal threats and violating a restraining order that was taken out by her ex-girlfriend, Jeanine Heller. Taryn accused Heller of harassing her in 2015, which resulted in Jeanine being sentenced to four months in jail. In 2016, it was discovered that Manning had lied about the contact violations, and Heller stated, "We have been able to confirm without a doubt that Taryn fabricated the documents she provided the ADA. Confirmation has come directly from each source — AT&T has confirmed her text allegations throughout the case have been false. In August 2014 Taryn claimed I left her a voicemail that led to an arrest for a violation. We have now been able to show that her evidence was simply a past voicemail I had left her prior to any legal drama in June 2014 that she simply recorded it again and claimed it to be from Aug 2014. Another source, TrueCaller, has confirmed the screenshots she submitted were 'not authentic' and an act of 'forgery.'"

In 2019, several Instagram posts including disparaging remarks about "Orange is the New Black" were posted on Manning's account, and she claimed that her account was "epically hacked." Taryn has struggled with alcohol abuse, and in 2016, the producers of "Orange is the New Black" threatened to fire her from the show unless she went to rehab. Taryn reportedly left rehab after just one day.

Awards and Nominations

The "Orange Is the New Black" cast was nominated for four Screen Actors Guild Awards for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, winning in 2015, 2016, and 2017, and Manning and her "Hustle & Flow" co-stars earned an Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture nomination in 2006. Taryn was named Film Fashion Visionary at the 2009 Bel Air Film Festival, and in 2014, she was ranked #8 for IMDb's Top 10 Breakout Stars Award. Manning received a Gold Derby Award nomination for Comedy Guest Actress for "Orange Is the New Black" in 2014 and a Washington DC Area Film Critics Association Award nomination for Best Breakthrough Performance for "Hustle & Flow" in 2005, and the "Hustle & Flow" cast earned a Black Reel Award nomination for Best Ensemble in 2006.
