Then: The biracial British beauty with a bold flare for fashion began her career as a television personality working in children’s programs in England in the early 1980s. The high energy that made her a success there translated well to hosting duties on ‘Club MTV,’ where she popularized her bubbly catchphrase “Wubba wubba wubba!” We still don’t know what it means.

Now: Brown worked with MTV from 1986 to 1991, then moved on to become a correspondent for ESPN and a host on E! Entertainment Television. She posed for ‘Playboy’ in 1998, and was a contestant on ‘I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!’ in 2003. Since then, she’s made occasional television appearances—including one on ‘RuPaul’s Drag U’—but has largely stayed out of the spotlight. But you can keep up with Downtown Julie Brown via Twitter.
