Christmas with the Bradys. Mike and Carol Brady decide to spend their savings on bringing their kids and relatives in for the holidays, but the kids are having their own problems: Greg (now a doctor) has to make the trip alone since his wife Nora is spending the holidays with her family; Peter is embarrassed to bring his girlfriend home since she is his boss; Bobby is hiding the fact that he dropped out of business grad school to race cars; Marcia's husband, Wally, has been laid off from his job at Tyler Toys; Jan and stuffy husband Phillip are separating; and Cindy is tired of the fact that mom and dad can't respect her as a grown woman. Just another day in the life of the Bradys.
Jan and Husband Phillip are hiding the fact that they are breaking up.
Bobby is hiding the fact that he dropped out of business school and is now training to be a race car driver.
Marcia is hiding the fact that her loser of a husband, Wally, has lost his job. Apparently Wally is useless and Marcia's kids are misbehaving brats (very unbrady like).
Peter is having a secret affair with his boss.
Alice's husband has left her for some floozy.
Greg and his wife cant decide which family to spend Christmas with, his or hers. So she goes to hers, he goes to his.
Cindy is being played by someone (Jennifer Runyon) else than the original actress (Susan Olsen) who played her in the original tv series. And Cindy is tired of being treated as a kid. She gets to be seated at the kiddie table.
A must see for Brady Bunch fans :-)
Anyone remember that it was later revealed that Barry Williams was “doing” 20 year older Florence Henderson (”Mrs. Brady”) while show was in production and “Mr. Brady” was big time gay?
False info. They had one chaste date.
Did you date Florence Henderson? I had a crush on Florence Henderson throughout the filming of our show. I did get up the nerve to ask her out on a date, and she accepted. We had a great time but it is safe to say my expectations were different than hers.
He and Maureen McCormick (Marcia) were dating.
Did you and Maureen really DATE? Maureen and I dated on and off from year three through year five. We liked each other, trusted each other and of course it was convenient. It got kinda weird though because of all the people, parents, producers being around all the time, not to mention the roles we played.
Q: So you actually went on a date with your TV mom? BW: Of course -- and I still ask Florence to go out on dates, if shell have me (laughter). When I wrote the book, I was very specific about how the date was because I felt it was a very significant part of my growing up. Because of the various stories that have gone on around it and the number of questions I answer regarding it, I wanted to make sure that it was a part of the movie. The date was a very important part of my participation as a producer on this project because it could have been used to fuel yet more exploitation of the story. I definitely, definitely was on the make for my television Mom. But she, on the other hand was, I think, flattered by the attention and great innocence attached to it. I think she could see my struggles as a teenage kid, there was no doubt that she was married, had four children of her own, and the relationship -- despite what I wanted and where I wanted it to go -- was never going to go anywhere.
However, the info about Robert Reed being gay (or bi) is true.
