The Las Vegas Review-Journal’sMike Weatherford provides a lengthy piece on the how, what, and to some extent, the why of events leading to Rachel Jessee’s guilty plea and conviction for battery last month.
We reported on Ms. Jessee’s rapid rise to fame and attempt to become the preeminent female magician in Las Vegas.
Inside Magic: Tell us a little about yourself. Do you come from a family involved in show business?
Scarlett: “I was born and raised in Reno, NV.
I moved from Reno to Las Vegas summer ’07 to pursue the magic show.
I’ve always been on stage. I started dancing very young and have studies everything from ballet, tap, Irish, jazz, hip-hop, lyrical, salsa, tango, ballroom, etc. and was a featured dancer of the Reno Irish Dance Co. for over 8 years.
Additional performing and studies in acting made my desire to be a professional entertainer.”
Scarlett was known as “The Princess of Magic” when she performed a family-friendly afternoon show that ran six days a week in Planet Hollywood’s V Theater. Her act has a new home and a very different name.
