She is married or was married to Steven’s brother Brad Hirsch. Some online sources say they are still married while others say they’re divorced. She also has a baby but it doesn’t say if the child is Brad’s. If she and Brad are divorced, didn’t she get a settlement?
She’s a real estate agent but because of the economy and crippled housing market, she’s forced to come back into porn to support her family. If she and Brad are divorced, then what the hell is her current husband doing that he can’t support his wife and child so his wife wouldn’t have to come back? If she and Brad are married, then the Hirsch family is more dysfunctional than I thought they were.
Some quotes from Raylene’s recent interview with AVN:
“I’m doing one comeback movie for Vivid so far, we’re going to see how it works out, and we’ll go from there. I sent him an e-mail, and he said he’d be willing to sit down and talk to me, so we met, had a great conversation, and yeah, we’re going to try one. So it was just really recent that I decided this.”
“Times are tough and I have to do what I have to do. I’m excited in some ways, and in other ways I’m kind of scared, because I’m a mother and I have a husband who I love very much.”
“My husband and I are pretty open, we have kind of a weird, freaky relationship. It actually is, in a way, a little bit sexually motivated because I think that it’ll open up our little sexual world a little bit. I’m just going to give it a try, see what happens.”
“I’ve been kicking the idea around for a little over a year. I met with a company last year, and for me, it just wasn’t the right timing, I didn’t feel like I could actually perform. For a long time I haven’t really had an interest in getting back in the business — I worked really hard with my real estate career — but things are different now. If things work out with this movie, I’m kind of looking at like a two-year plan.”
“I heard the industry has changed dramatically since I’ve been in it, so I don’t know what to expect. But I know that I’m in good hands over at Vivid, and I’m working for people that I’m familiar with, so that’s comforting.”
“I have a little bit of body image issues, even though I know that I look good — Steve wouldn’t hire me if I didn’t — but you know, I’ve had a baby. But I think that it’ll work out and I’ll probably be able to snap back into it pretty easy once I get on set.”
“I’m in a different head space than I was when I was in the business before. I don’t use drugs, I have a family to come home to every night, so I think that my goals are way different than they were. I’m not interested in doing it just to party and have fun. Of course, I’ll have fun on set, why wouldn’t I? It is sex, for goodness sake.”
“Perhaps the most surprising thing to Raylene surrounding this announcement is the instant spark of near rabid excitement it set off among industry observers.”
“It’s kind of funny to me. I didn’t know I still had fans! I stayed out of the light for so long, I didn’t know that anybody cared.”
