Brandy -- Finally Ready to Party

4/13/2007 11:07 AM PDT
For the first time since she was involved in a tragic car accident four months ago that left one person dead, Brandy decided to hit the Hollywood nightclub scene for her friend's birthday party -- with someone else driving. The only license she was using was a poetic one ...

TMZ -- and not The Movie Channel, which Brandy confuses us with -- spotted the "Moesha" star leaving Area last night. She told our camera, "Hey TMC! ... We're gonna have a good time, thanks for being here." Of course, if Brandy had realized TMZ made her accident public, she probably wouldn't have been so thankful!

The L.A. City Attorney has not yet decided whether charges will be filed against Miss Norwood in the crash case, and she still has her license ... but Norwood chose a chauffeured Town Car instead of getting behind the wheel.
