Brandi Favre -- Reaching Out to Brett

1/14/2011 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Brandi Favre still has a "very close" relationship with her famous older brother -- and TMZ has learned she plans on reaching out to Brett Favre for help in the wake of her meth arrest.

Brandi Favre and Brett Favre

According to Brandi's attorney Richard Dymond -- who also happens to be a Favre family friend -- Brandi still talks to Brett on a "regular basis" and will be turning to the NFL star for guidance.

Dymond tells us despite Brandi's past brushes with the law -- she's never been convicted of a "serious crime" ... and insists, "Brandi is a good person."

As we previously reported, Brandi and 4 other people were arrested in Mississippi this week after cops claim they were operating a meth lab in an upscale neighborhood. Brandi is due back in court in February.

So far, no comment from Brett's camp.

Since when is running a METH LAB not a crime?

"Good people" don't run meth labs in their houses.

She needs to be careful when she is "reaching out", sometimes it's a penis and not a hand waiting for you.

Charles Manson never actually killed anyone, yet he was convicted.

This skanky drug maker/dealer needs to be in prison for at least 15 years.

With the amount of $ Favre has earned, one would think he could provide the help & support for drug-addicted relatives!

I love how they make sure to clarify that the meth lab was in "an unpscale neighborhood". That in and of itself is cause for a life sentence. I mean we all know the "upscale neighborhoods" don't have any drugs or crime and to have a meth lab in an "upscale neighborhood" should make it a death penalty case. How dare they bring that kind of activity into an "upscale neighborhood". They should have kept the lab where they belong, in "lowscale neighborhoods" aka da ghetto, and they would have been left alone and no charges would have been made. Gotta love the way our government perpetuates the fraud that prejudice is wrong when in fact, they are the largest group that thrive on prejudice. Their prejudice is what seperates the classes in society.

Of course she is reaching out to Brett. She did that when she was arrested for a 'drive by' shooting in Mississippi. She only got off with a slap on the hand because Brett is her brother, when the other people got worse (and deserved it too). I wouldn't be surprised if she gets off with this one too, although Brett isn't as well liked anymore. Brett's brother finally ended up in jail because he didn't think his 'house arrest' included holidays. If I remember correctly, his father had been a police officer in Kiln, MS, so I wouldn't be surprised about anything.

Notice he says 'never convicted' of a serious crime. She was involved in a drive by shooting while in college! She got her record expunged. She's dirt, Brett's dirt, they are what they are.

If that's what Meth does to your appearance, I know I'll pass!!

That's rough!

Seriously though, if the family knows she has had run ins with the law then they know she has a problem. Then it becomes a question of why isn't anyone (not just Brett) in the family trying to help her?

Smells sorta like burnt bridges to me.

They should make her do anti-meth commercials: "This is what the drug could do to you" Although she was busted before her teeth all fell out, she was still able to eat the inside of the police car. As hideous as she is, I don't think she would even get raped in jail.
