  1. She went by Scarlett Greyson in Austin

    1. " I'm looking forward to growing as a reporter in this wonderful city." Sounds like this will be a stepping stone job for her.

  2. She's hot. I bet she'll be a sex symbol here much like Chita and Jennifer.

  3. For those straight male or lesbian Chita Johnson fans who are kind of bummed she got engaged, and if Jennifer Reyna or Lindsey Day ain't your thing...look no further...Scarlett Fakhar is here!!!
