Brooke Mueller Arrested: Biography Of her TV & Movie Career

Brooke Mueller, as emphasized by her arrest for drug possession in Aspen, Colorado on Friday, has become known largely for her addictions and criminal record. But the ex-wife of Charlie Sheen is not simply a rap sheet and gossip item; she's also had a short career in Hollywood.

Involved in show business long before she married Sheen, Mueller first appeared in 1998 in a cameo role in the show, "USA High." That was followed by perhaps her most significant acting work, a co-starring role in "Witchouse," a 1999 horror film about some kids tricked into attending a party that would bring back an old witch.

About a decade later, Mueller made it back to credited movie roles, with a supporting job in "Strictly Sexual," about two women who keep men in their pool house for sexual recreation.

In keeping with her fame for being herself, Mueller also has appeared in a number of televised venues as, well, Brooke Mueller. Given that rumors about her personal life so often appeared on TV tabloid shows, it made sense that Mueller would serve a short stint as a correspondent for "Entertainment Tonight," which she did from 2008-09.

Then, there was her semi-tragic run in "The World According To Paris," the Paris Hilton reality show in which she co-starred. Most of Mueller's storyline had to do with her attempts to stay sober, which, unfortunately, came to a halt last week.
