    Brandi Kaye Brashears Pierce       |        In-Depth Character History
    Brandi Kaye Brashears was born to Barton and Beverly Bradshears in December 1965. However, one month after her
    eleventh birthday tragedy struck when her parents were in involved in a car accident that claimed both of their lives.
    Having no other known family that she was aware of Brandi was placed in the foster care system and bounced around
    from foster home to foster home.

    In 1979, Brandi was placed in her last foster home - with Henry and Opal Garrett in River's Edge. She immediately
    bonded with the Garrett's youngest daughter Natasha and as she grew older clashed with their oldest daughter Felicia.
    Brandi remained with the Garrett family until she reached the legal of age. By this time Henry and Opal considered her
    part of the family and planned to send her to college at their expense. While vacationing in San Antonio with friends from
    high school Brandi was attacked and raped. She immediately called Henry and with the help of both Henry and Opal she
    was able to put the ordeal behind her and began attending college in River's Edge a year after her graduation from high
    school.

    Following graduation from college Brandi began working with Henry and Natasha at the Garrett Realtors office as an
    office manager. Eventually she obtained her real estate license and following Henry's death she and Natasha went into
    business together as co-owners of Garrett & Brashears Realtor.
Brandi Brashears (Late 1980s)
    Throughout the 80s & early 90s Brandi remained a close friend to Natasha who by the
    time she was adult considered her to not only be her best friend, but also her sister.
    Brandi was named the Godmother of Natasha's three children with Andrew upon their
    respective births in 1983 and 1985.

    At a Fourth of July party in 1994 Brandi's life took a dramatic turn of events. After
    witnessing an argument between Andrew and Natasha she confronted her best friend's
    husband. Without thinking or consideration for Natasha's feelings the two ended up
    having sex. Andrew and Brandi then began having a dangerous affair that lasted until
    November of that year. Brandi begged Andrew not to ever tell Natasha what they had
    done and to this day the secret remains carefully tucked away, never having been
    exposed.

    In 2001, Brandi's life would forever be changed when Nicholas Pierce arrived in River's Edge. He hired Brandi as his real
    estate agent to show him both residential homes and commercial property to relocate his business King Fashion and
    family to the area for financial gain purposes.

    Brandi and Nicholas quickly hit it off and they even made love in a bedroom of one of the houses she was showing him.
    In 2002, when Nicholas returned back to River's Edge with his wife Audrey and their two children Justin and Ethan she
    began to speculate that her relationship with Nicholas was over and such began dating Ethan.

    Audrey made it clear to her husband that she would not let him go without a fight and Brandi backed off. Audrey thought
    she had won the fight soon learned that Ethan had begun to see his father's mistress. After a family dinner with Nicholas,
    Audrey, Justin, Leslie Bradshaw, Ethan and Brandi - Brandi mistook Justin's bedroom for Ethan's and the two ended up
    having sex, all the while believing it was Ethan and not Justin. When the romp was later exposed Leslie ended her
    engagement to Justin and the Pierce brothers came to blows over Brandi. As the fight intensified between her sons,
    Audrey attempted to break it up and in her efforts became the victim. Audrey lost her balance, fell, and hit her head on the
    fireplace which rendered her comatose and later paralyzed. Once Audrey emerged from her coma she learned that not
    only had Nicholas taken control of King Fashion but he intended to divorce her and marry Brandi - as Brandi had revealed
    to him that she was pregnant with this child.

    In 2002, during a fashion show in Monte Carlo with her worst enemy by her side Brandi gave birth to a perfect and
    beautiful son - Lewis. The happy family returned to River's Edge where things seemed to be calm. Brandi's Godson
    Jered Bradshaw began selling real estate with her and actually on several occasions sought out her advice regarding
    his relationship with Kendra Logan who also happened to be his step-sister.

    In 2004, Brandi's marriage to Nicholas hit a rough patch as Audrey began to make a play for her ex-husband. At Jodi
    Bradshaw's wedding to Jaxson Hayes, Audrey revealed that she was able to walk and as a result planted a kiss on
    Nicholas which was witnessed by Brandi.

    Because of the kiss Brandi began to drink heavily at the reception and soon left without telling anyone where she was
    going. Hours later Justin Pierce came upon a car accident and was horrified to learn that it was Brandi and that she had
    hit Jered and Kendra.

    Justin tried to keep the truth from Brandi but eventually she discovered that she was responsible for Jered's accident.
    She attempted to flee River's Edge in order to avoid prosecution or further hurting Natasha. A chance encounter with
    Jered's spirit however compelled her to confess her involvement which she did, but not before marrying Justin.

    In February 2005, Brandi was sent to prison for her role in Jered's death. She is currently eligible for parole in 2012.

    In August 2012, Brandi was released from prison. She returned home to River's Edge to be with her husband Justin and
    son Lewis.
