Brett admitted the GoFundMe wasn’t something she is proud of having to do. She said, “for those who have 'mixed feelings' - at best - about this particular GoFundMe, let's just say...we get it. (This wasn't exactly on our bucket list, either.)”

The actress is not in the clear yet and still needs $10,000 to make sure everything is handled. Her friend said, "this past year has put [Bret] in a critical situation and desperation has set in. I’m not exaggerating using those words. It is urgent."

"Brett has exhausted all of her resources and the stress of looming eviction is straining her mentally and physically," he claimed.

One fan who donated $20 wrote, "I faced being homeless in 2010. The many kindnesses; monetarily, prayers, and emotional support, from friends and acquaintances, saved me. I want to pay it forward, whenever I can. I wish I could donate more. Stay strong. You are loved by so many."

Brett has struggled to find consistent work in the years since her hit ABC sitcom ended in 1998. She was famously fired by the network due to her issues with drug addiction.

Brett has faced rough patches in the years since and even had to live in a homeless shelter in 2011. She revealed the situation in a Hollywood Reporter interview. The article led to producers calling Brett and providing her roles.

Reese Witherspoon cast her as her mom on Apple TV's The Morning Show in 2019. The guest role wasn't enough to keep Brett afloat.
