Wretzky’s time in the band was marked by alternating periods of happiness and discomfort. Corgan considered her the “moral authority” and “moral conscience” of the band. In the aftermath of the success of 1995’s Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, Corgan said she began an “apparent slow descent into insanity and/or drugs (take your pick).” After the short, nine-date “The Arising!” tour in April 1999 which saw all four original members performing together for the first time since 1996, Wretzky decided to leave the band with intentions of pursuing an acting career. The band were recording Machina/The Machines of God and Machina II/The Friends and Enemies of Modern Music at the time and consequently she performed very few bass parts on the album. Most of the bass parts were handled by Corgan himself. Shortly after leaving the group, she was arrested for possession of crack cocaine. Corgan later said she was “fired for being a mean-spirited drug addict who refused to get help.” She was replaced on 2000’s Machina tour by former Hole bassist Melissa Auf der Maur.

In May 2016 in an interview with Loudwire, Filter lead singer Richard Patrick spoke of a romantic relationship he had with Wretzky saying she was the subject of a song he wrote called “Miss Blue”, also on Title of Record.
