The most popular of these appearances took place in the sitcom called Married with Children and her role in the sitcom was Desperately Seeking Miss October. This appearance was the first broadcast on the 5th November 1989. We should also mention that she was acting alongside Ed O’Neill and David Garrison in that episode.

During her entire lifetime, she was followed by numerous controversies.

Apart from these, during her stay at the Playboy mansion, she was also involved with Hugh Hefner. This is not the end. She was also in the relationship with Tracii Guns and Riki Rachtman. One of the most significant controversies and rumors was that she was having an affair with Tommy Lee, who was a colleague with her husband in Mötley Crüe.

The worst period in her life was surely when she was together with Rusty Setser, who is known to be a motorcycle stuntman. During that time she had huge problems with the abuse of drugs and her partner was also accused of drug trafficking. He was the one who encouraged Brandi to take drugs, and he was the one paying for their life. It is also known that Rusty tried to smuggle drugs in Australia, but he was denied access in that country. He then sent Brandi to import drugs, i.e. cocaine into this country. However, she was busted after a while ago. It should be noted that he was sentenced to six years of prison time in 2014 and she was right for parole in November 2016.
