LOS ANGELES - Before her reality TV fame, the winner of VH1's "Rock of Love Charm School" took lessons in hardcore porn.
Brandi Mahon (billed as "Brandi M.") was one of 14 contestants who returned from their failed stints on the network's popular Bret Michaels series "Rock of Love" to participate in the spin-off series hosted by Sharon Osbourne.
The tattooed blonde endured a grueling season of inane etiquette challenges, cat-fights, bitches and back-biting to win $100,000 and a certified Charm School diploma.
Ironically, or not so ironically, the most charming girl in the house of spurned Poison groupies is a former Vegas stripper who once displayed her exemplary decorum on the XXX website AmateurFacials.com. She also appeared as "Pamela" on PurelyPamela.com.
Mahon wasn't the only porn Brandi featured on "Rock of Love Charm School". The busty blonde billed as "Brandi C." performed in a handful of videos under the name Brittany Burke before she emerged as a VH1 "CelebReality" star on "Rock of Love," "Charm School," and "I Love Money".
And let's not forget Megan Hauserman, the self-styled villain who plucked nerves on "Rock of Love" and "I Love Money" along with her mentally retarded dog. Megan has shown plenty of skin for Playboy and pals around off screen with porn star-turned-VH1 personality Mary Carey.
