appearing with Kelly Kelly and Layla in the dance group Extreme Exposé on the company's former ECW brand. She is a former two-time

TNA Women's Knockout Champion and a one-time TNA Knockouts Tag Team Champion with Tara, known collectively as TnT.

 

Adams grew up with her twin sister and mother in St. Louis, Missouri. She sees her mother as a hero, and at age 7 her mother, her sister and herself moved to Houston, Texas where she was raised. She began her career there as a model, modeling for various companies across the Texas region such as Hawaiian Tropic & Vertical Smiles. Following her stint as a fitness model, she appered on several shows as a model such as Ritmo Deportivo and G4's Street Furry. During this time she was a featured model on Bikini Destinations. Following this She modeled previously for Elite Model Management before getting involved in professional wrestling.

 

She first became involved in professional wrestling by trying out for the 2006 WWE Diva Search, for which she failed to make the top 8. Despite not making the cut, Adams was chosen to observe workouts in "development territory" Ohio Valley Wrestling along with Maryse Ouellet, after which she was offered a developmental contract. She accepted and was assigned to Deep South Wrestling (DSW) to train, starting as the valet for Daniel Rodimer. When Rodimer was called up to the main roster, she was left without a wrestler and focused on becoming a full-time wrestler herself. She made her in-ring debut, a loss to Angel Williams, at a DSW TV taping in December 2006.

 

On January 23, 2007 Adams debuted on the ECW brand, joining Kelly Kelly and Layla El in Extreme Exposé. This would become a weekly dance segment on the show. She also continued working in DSW and during February she was (kayfabe) promoted to the position of Personal Assistant to General Manager Krissy Vaine, with her main job being to protect Krissy from Angel Williams. This eventually led to another match between Adams and Williams, as ordered by Vaine. At the March 15, 2007 DSW TV tapings, Adams was kayfabe fired from her position following Vaine and Williams' alliance together. Adams made her in-ring WWE debut on the May 28, 2007 edition of Raw where she, along with several other WWE Divas from all three brands competed in a Memorial Day Bikini Beach Blast Battle Royal, which was won by Michelle McCool. When Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) opened in the summer of 2007, Brooke was transferred to the developmental facility for training, along with continuing her Extreme Exposé role.

 

In April 2007, Brooke, along with Ashley, Kelly Kelly, Layla El, Torrie Wilson, and Maryse, appeared in Timbaland's music video "Throw It On Me" featuring The Hives, which premiered on Raw on May 20.

 

Extreme Exposé acted as a weekly dance segment on the ECW show for month until The Miz was also placed on the ECW brand in the annual draft lottery, at which point all three ladies began actively pursuing him. Later, however, Kelly shifted her attentions towards the much more slovenly looking Balls Mahoney, to the amusement of the Miz and her Exposé sisters who had been spending their time mocking his look.

 

In August 2007, Brooke, along with Extreme Exposé, appeared on FHMOnline.com.

 

On November 1, 2007, Brooke was released from her WWE contract, due to an "gimmick infringement" involving Melina about the furry black boots she wore as a part of her costume for the Halloween battle royal, seeing how Melina frequently does furry boots for her wrestling appearances.

 

After her release, she resurrected her modeling career, placing in the Hawaiian Tropic, Planet Beach, Darque Tan, and Bikini USA model search contests. She is known as "Bubbles" by one of her photographers from her early modeling shots Brooke was crowned as the reigning Miss Hawaiian Tropic Texas 2008 on the evening of November 8, 2008. Since she has been hosting events and has modeled for another Bikini Destination production.


On the March 29, 2010, edition of TNA Impact!, Adams made her Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) debut in a backstage segment as Eric Bischoff's assistant, under the name Ms. Tessmacher, named after Lex Luthor's girlfriend and assistant in the first two Superman movies. On the September 30 edition of Impact! she was put in charge of the TNA Knockouts as Knockout's Law. The position quickly went to her head and she began being verbally abusive to all of the knockouts. Just two weeks later Bischoff fired Tessmacher from her position as his assistant and Knockout's Law, after she had leaked important information about his plans to Kevin Nash and "The Pope" D'Angelo Dinero, stating that she needed to become a wrestler herself if she wanted to remain in TNA. The following week, Tessmacher begged The Beautiful People to teach her how to wrestle, but they ultimately refused, due to the treatment they got from her when she was in control of the Knockouts division. At the following Impact!, it was revealed that Lacey Von Erich of The Beautiful People had agreed to train Tessmacher to wrestle. However, Von Erich would leave the promotion on November 11, ending the angle abruptly.

 

On the December 16 edition of Impact! Tessmacher returned and made her TNA in–ring debut as Bischoff's hand picked partner for Mickie James in the first round match of a tournament for the vacant TNA Knockouts Tag Team Championship, in which they were defeated by then Knockouts Champion Madison Rayne and Tara.
