ABOUT BRETT ROSSI
Born in Fontana, CA, Brett Rossi is a true California Girl. At 14, a coach directed runway shows for Gottschalks and Forever 21 stores scouted her. Brett accepted the challenge, doing runway shows and retail catalog shoots with her grandmother, a former Pepsi model, managing her career.
At 18, she began doing centerfold and glamour modeling. In 2010, she took on the stage name of Brett Rossi, posed for a variety of men’s mags, and worked at the Playboy Mansion as a painted model to pay for college. In 2011, she became a national hit with her debut on Howard Stern’s radio show, was dubbed her December Miss Howard TV, and hosted the December Howard 100 series on his SiriusXM channel. Also in 2011, she was named Playboy’s Cyber Girl.
In February 2012, she was Penthouse Pet of the Month, and signed a contract with Twistys to shoot girl/girl scenes. Her contract ended in 2013, and she left the industry to finish her nursing degree. Six months later, she was dating Charlie Sheen—they were engaged in 2014 and later that year they ended their engagement. In 2015, she returned to adult, signing a contract with Kayden Kross’ TrenchcoatX to shot her first boy/girl scenes. Now a free agent, she’s shot scenes for Digital Playground, Babes.com, Reality Kings, BangBros, Nubiles, PornPros, Brazzers, Mofos, Hustler, Wicked, New Sensations, Metro, Zero Tolerance, Kink.com, Girlsway, and Pretty Dirty.
The funny, sexy girl next door has graced the pages and covers of several adult publications including Playboy, Penthouse, Hustler, Cheri, and Club. Brett has scored four AVN Awards nominations for Best Girl/Girl Sex Scene, Best Oral Scene, Best Star Showcase, and Best Three-Way Scene B/B/G, along with 4 AVN Awards noms for Crossover Star of the Year, Girl/Girl Performer of the Year, Best Scene All Girl, and Performer Showcase of the Year.

We first met at the AVN show this January and said that we would like to have you on our cover. Here we are now, and it’s happening much sooner than expected. Let’s start with AVN, so could you tell us about the week in Las Vegas, starting with the trade show:
Tell us about the stunning red dress you wore on the Red Carpet.
I hadn’t picked out a dress and we were a week away from AVN. I was visiting my good friend Kayden Kross, and she let me borrow her dress. I was in love with it and she wore the year before.
You performed live in the Comedy Chaos show at the LA Comedy Club in the Stratosphere. What is like to do stand-up comedy in front of a live audience?
Comedy comes natural to me. I’ve been on stage for a very long time, so it was great to be back on a stage and combining two things I love: performing and comedy.
How did you come up with your material?
I wrote my entire stand up show based around my real-life events that I have experienced dating.
How does one rehearse to do stand up?
I actually didn’t rehearse at all. I simply just made sure I knew my key points, and if I didn’t miss my key points. I knew I could wing the rest considering it was all based off my real-life dating stories, which are pretty comical.
Did the audience love you?
I suppose they did. People laughed, so I think they did.
Brett is commonly a man’s name, such as Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre and country music singer Brett Eldredge. How did you come to be a Brett? And, do you have a masculine side?
My real life nickname is a boy’s name and I’ve always loved boy’s names for girls. When I got in the business, I knew I wanted an uncommon name and that I wanted a boy’s name. So, I came up with Brett and used my real last name, Rossi.
In our opinion, you look more like a high society woman than an adult star. In another words you appear to have a lot of class. Are we correct in our assumption?
Yes, believe it or not, I’m rather a prude in real life. I don’t show much skin. I’ve always thought it was important to uphold a very classy image, because being in adult there are already large stereotypes. So it’s always important for me to keep it classy and not let my image be defined by my job or a stereotype.
Let’s go back to the beginning. Where were you born? Where did you grow up?
I was born in Southern California and I grew up in the Inland Empire.
Your bio says you were a teenage runway model. Could you tell us about that experience? What were some of the clothing styles and lines you modeled?
Yes, I was scouted by a runway director when I was waiting on tables at 14. She worked for Gotchalks, Forever 21, etc. I never once took a class for runway, it was always just natural for me.
Your bio also says worked at the Playboy Mansion. In what capacity?
Yes, I worked at the Playboy Mansion as one of Hef’s painted girls.
You were a Playboy “Cyber Girl”. What is exactly is that?
I was a cyber girl back when Playboy still owned their website. It was basically their internet version of their Playmate of the Month.
Any comments on Hugh Hefner?
Hef was kind and generous the times that I met him. He hand-picked me to be one of his painted girls for several parties, so I can’t complain.
How about Howard Stern? He made you “Miss Howard TV”. Can you explain how that came about and some of the highlights of the title?
I was discovered on twitter by Howard’s longtime friend and assistant, Ronnie. Ronnie contacted me and I thought it was a joke. Then, I was contacted by Howard’s producers. They said Howard chose me to be Miss Howard TV and insisted I come to NYC to film for Howard 100 and be on his radio show.
You were Pet of the Month in February 2012. Where did you shoot the layout and what were the photos like?
I shot the layout in Hollywood Hills and the layout was supposed to be timeless and elegant, which they were.
Somewhere in this time span you filmed your first adult video. How did it come to be? What was title? And what did you do on camera?
I had done solo work for Twistys, and while I was on set for Penthouse someone mentioned the kind of money they were making doing GG. So I figured, why not? I like girls, so how hard could it be.
You were engaged to Charlie Sheen, and it made tabloid headlines. Do you care to talk about it or is that chapter of your life closed, over and done?
He was he love of my life, but it was a very toxic and unhealthy relationship. I learned a lot about myself and how strong of a person I have become because of that experience. That’s pretty much all that needs to be said about that chapter of my life.
You were working on a nursing degree. Did you ever complete your studies? Nursing would be a totally different side of you. Do you think someday you will pursue a nursing career?
I was 6 months away from graduating, but unfortunately I was in a relationship where that person didn’t want me to finish. Foolishly, I dropped out, but I guess it was a blessing in disguise, because now I’m on to bigger and better things in my life. I don’t think I’ll ever go back. I got very attached to my patients, and dealing with the death of patiens was very hard on me emotionally.
That’s a beautiful horse you own. Can you tell us about it like the name, breed, and sex. And can you describe the horse for those that have not seen the photos?
My horse is named Virgil. He’s a black and white gypsy with blue eyes. He’s the most fantastic living being that I’ve ever been so lucky to have in my life.
How old were you when you started riding? What are your equestrian skills? Have you ever competed?
I’ve been riding on and off since I was young, but I didn’t start riding seriously until I was in my mid-twenties. I intend to eventually show my horse in either hunter/jumper or dressage.
What about trail riding?
Trail riding is actually my favorite thing to do!
Is singing around the campfire something you would enjoy?
I’m not a campfire kinda gal.
Let’s get back to the adult video part of the interview. At one time, you retired from the adult industry. Why? What motivated you to return?
I decided to go back to school. Then, I found myself engaged and then I wasn’t, so I decided to come back.
After you returned who was the first company you shot with?
Actually, my first scene back was a GG scene for HoloGirls VR
Recently you appeared in adult TV series “Mom’s Teach Sex.” What’s that about?
I had no idea I was in that. I work a lot, so maybe I forgot. LOL
You recently made your debut as a director in “Brett Rossi Girl Crushed’ from Deviant Entertainment. Tell us about the cast and the film
I specifically wanted all top trending performers, and girls who loved girls. My cast was an A-list cast, and I couldn’t have asked for a better group of girls to direct for the first time!
What’s it like working both sides of the camera?
It’s definitely a little more challenging. There are a lot more details and things to deal with on the other side of the camera.
Another recent film that you are in is “Sex is for Lovers #2” by New Sensations. What did you most enjoy about the film?
I enjoyed James Deen. He’s amazing!
A different release would be “Cougar BDSM #3” from Zero Tolerance. (Great cover by the way!) What’s your scene in the film?
I worked with Tommy Pistol for Mike Quasar. It was a different type of genre than I’m used to shooting, but I had a lot of fun!
In real life are you into BDSM?
I am not, but my boyfriend is and I find it intriguing.
Dominant or submissive?
I am dominant with women and submissive with men.
Do you prefer to perform in girl/girl or girl/guy videos?
I will always love doing GG, but I think they both comes with pros and cons. Most important to me is having a scene partner that is into me just as much as I am into them!
You have several new Internet scenes. How do you compare those to your scenes on DVD?
I’m not really sure, I give my all in every scene I shoot.
You just appeared in a music video for Ninja Sex Party. Can you tell us more about it when we can expect to see the actual video?
I’m not sure when the video will be out, but it was a cover for “Pour Some Sugar On Me” and it was a LOT of fun!!
Your latest scene for Brazzers is “Last Dance with Brett Rossi” from Brazzers. Did you enjoy working with Keiran and the premise of the scene?
Kieran and I are great friends, so it’s always a pleasure working with him.
So did you leave Keiran Lee’s house satisfied?
Who would you like to work with in the future?
Actors? Actresses? Directors?
I don’t really have any specifics… I just want to do more features and work with more performers, who are great actors and talent!
Whose work do you admire?
That’s sort of a hard question. I try not to admire anyone’s work specifically. I try to admire their work ethic more, because work ethic keeps a career thriving. I think Kayden Kross is probably my biggest idol, and the person whose work ethic I admire the most.
Tell us about your website.
My new website has never before seen boy/girl videos, girl/girl videos, and also home videos! I also personally run my website 🙂
How can we find you on social media?

We love your funny video clips on your Twitter. Can you tell us more about those?
PornSoup? PornSoup is a YouTube show that Kayden Kross and Manuel Ferrera came up with. We created a character, Billy’s Mom (who is played by me), and she basically is their crazy next door neighbor, who is in love with Manuel.

Your favorite body part?
