A native of Grand Rapids, Michigan, Jessica Rich has been in love with entertainment since her father worked hand-in-hand with Great Aunt Patti LaBelle under her management company PAZ. Watching her Aunt shoot for the stars and reach them inspired Rich to herself aim for success within the industry. At 22 Rich made her dreams a reality by moving to New York to push her acting and modeling career to the next level. Rich's break came in 2008 when she landed placement on VH1's reality series "Real Chance of Love."
Since then Rich has been featured on productions such as "Law and Order," "Salt," "Brooklyn's Finest," and "Notorious." Rich has also hosted for BET on the "106 and Park New Year’s 2008" and the "Notarized Top 100 Countdown 2009." A multi-talented performer, Rich is educated in various styles of dance and has been featured on music videos for Jim Jones, LL Cool J and Fabolous.
Rich's modeling can be viewed in print in various magazines including "Maxim," "Smooth" and "Black Men." In late 2009 Rich packed her bags and moved to Los Angeles, where she is actively moving ahead. She recently in December 2011 wrapped a feature film called "An American in Hollywood" starring HBO’s the wire cast JD Williams and Hassan Johnson.
Jessica has always been in love with fashion from a young age. Growing up with little money and being raised by a mom who worked 2 jobs, Jessica still received "best dressed" in high school. Her classmates always thought she was "Rich" Jessica's motto has been "Shop cheap look Rich". She has now taken her full passion of hosting and style into full force by training with the best names in LA.
The driven talented style makeover princess J Rich is best at what’s she does by recreating someone’s image and their homes by spending very little money but making it look like she spent a ton! Jessica's outgoing, funny in your face personality was recently on FOX "Take Me Out" alongside George Lopez hoping to one-day co-host with him and many others.
Jessica launched her Jewelry line in June 2012 called the Jessica Rich Jewelry Collection, which is already being worn by Shaunie O’Neal ( which Jessica also just redecorated her home) singers Keyshia Cole, Brooke Valentine and Estelle as well as Vh1 personalities Karlie Redd, Draya Michelle and "Cali". The collection is very over the top and "Rich" looking but with cheap prices! This girl is on a move and won’t stop until she has her own "Style It Rich" show. Stay tuned!
