Raylene announced her retirement from the adult entertainment industry in November 2001 (about the same time as Toni James aka Renee Smith), although she hasn’t cut all ties to the adult industry, she is married to Brad Hirsch, and her father-in-law Steve Hirsch is the President and Co-Founder of Vivid Entertaiment.
Toni and Raylene performed together in many adult videos. However, Raylene does NOT hide from her past. Stacey continues to respect & support all those people working, past & present, in the adult entertainment industry, unlike Renee Slyker Smith (Toni James).
In fact, Stacey, while still working at Pinnacle Real Estate in Encino, is proud to show up at many events in person & currently helps raise money for AIM & other well known adult industry related fund raising charities, benefits, & causes.
Former Vivid Girl Raylene will greet fans and sign autographs Saturday night in Las Vegas after the opening of the musical Birdy’s Bachelorette Party at the Stratosphere.
Now better known as Stacey Hirsch, a successful West Valley real estate agent, Raylene is appearing as her former porn persona as a favor to a close relative of hers who is producing the show.
“It’s kind of a special thing,” Raylene told. “It’s not something I will be doing all the time.”
She said that there is “a Broadway edition of this particular musical. The focus of the show is a big, giant mechanical penis. So it’s adult oriented but it does not have adult content. It’s not porn.”
Raylene will do her signing after the first performance at a bookstore adjoining the Stratosphere showroom.
“I do look forward to meeting fans again,” she said. “It will be interesting. I am definitely rusty. I have been doing the real estate thing for a long time. I have not seen a fan in god knows how long.”
