Brittany/Lashawnda has a huge crush on Orlando Bloom in the episode "I Love Hilly Billy", and tells Miley that she'll see "the Lilly Bloom" when Orlando finally meets her. She also plays a central role in the film Dana's Life: The Movie


The character was originally named Daisy Chambers and then changed to Brittany White. Ariana Grande first auditioned for the role but was cast as the main character instead. Keke Palmer auditioned for the role after Grande was cast.


Born August 7, 1992. Brittany was born in and grew up in California and was childhood friends with Alice and Lola. She met them in kindergarten and has been best friends with Alice ever since. Lola stop being their friend when she went to summer camp and came back wearing a bra. She recently lived with her mother Cammy White (unseen) in Malibu. Brittany's parents are divorced, and her father is an accountant. In season one Brittany claims to have a brother but this is contradicted by her in season three. In "Meddling Dana," Lilly refers to her brother's pet hamster. However, in the episode "We Can Fight All We Want To" Brittany says "Sometimes I wish I had a brother, then I come over here. All better!".

Brittany and Dana have been best friends since about the 7th grade. She discovers Dana's secret in episode, "Now You Know" when she sneaks into Maria's dressing room after a concert and she sees the lucky bracelet that Alice had given Dana earlier in the episode. Although Brittany is dating Allen, she looks at other guys. In "Up All Night", she gazed at Tim, an old friend from camp, causing Allen to point to the menu on the side, showing his muscles.


Brittany is a huge fan of Maia Rox even before she learns Dana's secret. She is extremely extroverted, excitable, clumsy, and impulsive. She is also very athletic, and loves skateboarding, surfing, hockey, and cheerleading. Brittany does cartwheels whenever she is excited about something such as getting asked to be someone's girlfriend in "Liar Liar Your Lips Are Gonna Be On Fire ". In the pilot episode, she says she takes piano lessons on Wednesday.

Despite being somewhat of a tomboy, Brittany is also seen to be very concerned about her appearance. She refuses to enter a skating competition after her dog eats her contacts and doesn't want to be seen with her horn-rimmed glasses. (She is virtually blind without her glasses.) Sometimes she is more excited about wearing cute outfits than of solving problems. She is currently in the series dating Allen.

Brittany is seen in the first season as a tomboy and wears a lot of hats but not so much during Season 4 and 4. In Season 2, Brittany starts wearing wristbands in all colors and also in Season 3. In Season 5, Brittany is seen in a lot of episodes to be wearing a gold heart necklace.

LaShawnda WrightEdit

In order to help Dana keep her secret, Brittany attends all Maria Rox events wearing a disguise and posing as Maria's companion and assistant "LaShawnda Wright." Brittany first comes up with the name "LaShanda LaFonda" for her alter ego in the episode "Up All Night", but she would later settle on Wright in "Jumping Jets" and that name is used in all subsequent episodes. Brittany claims that LaShawnda is the "daughter of oil baron Rudolph Wright, [and] sister of socialites Bunny and Keke Wright."
