Brandi Carson, played by Denise Richards, was a recurring character seen in the fourth season of Melrose Place, the second series of the Beverly Hills, 90210 continuity. She appeared in Season 4.

Brandi was a contestant in the "Miss Health and Fitness" beauty pageant being judged by Michael Mancini and Peter Burns. She and her mother, Teri Carson, schemed to have Brandi declared the winner by seducing the judges. Brandi successfully seduced Michael into a one-night stand.

However, although Michael voted for Brandi, Peter did not and she ended up coming in second place. Her mother then decided to sue Peter for having sex with a minor, despite it being Michael that did it.

Brandi tried to call Michael and expressed guilt over the lawsuit, but was being forced by her mother to continue with it. After the lawsuit was dropped after Amanda Woodward gave Brandi a job on a big ad campaign, Brandi informed Amanda that everything was a lie.

Denise Richards also played Robin McGill on Beverly Hills, 90210 and Gwen Thompson on 90210.
