The Marcia & Jan Brady "Affair" - UPDATED

UPDATE: Maureen McCormick's publisher denies that mention of a "Brady sisters affair" is in her new biography, and that it is an Internet rumor & nothing more.

Afro-Jan is NOT amused.

From Contact Music:

Wholesome former THE BRADY BUNCH star MAUREEN MCCORMICK is set to reveal the beloved 70s TV series' most shocking secret in a new book - she and her on-screen sister had a lesbian fling.

MCCormick's tell-all, Here's The Story, won't hit bookstores until 2008, but publishers are already buzzing about the big reveal. As well as talking candidly about her well-documented
eating disorder and drug problems in the book, TV's Marcia Brady will come clean about a romance she had with co-star Eve Plumb, who played her sister Jan on the hit show.

A source tells America's National Enquirer, "The most explosive comments will be how the then-blonde, blue-eyed cutie developed a crush on Eve Plumb, which led to some sexual play."

I need a drink.

Seriously, I'm taking my computer to the local pub and getting a drink now.

Likes the "twist":

Interested in the movie rights:


  1. "Wholesome" set sail with the eating disorder and drug addiction.

    I dunno, maybe her dad is right.

  2. Great.



    I guess there are only so many different line readings of "Marsha, Marsha, Marsha" you can do before you decide to moan it...

  3. Quoth the Hilton: "That's hot."

    Thanks Rob... now my mind is replacing Sally Albright with Jan Brady in the diner scene...

  4. The more I think about it, the more I think you could make an absolutely awesome TV series out of the behind-the-scenes drama on 'The Brady Bunch'. It'd have a sort of Melrose Place, Desperate Housewives sort of vibe to it--sex, drugs, closeted gay actors, lesbian sex, eating disorders, fights, and all set to the backdrop of this wholesome, successful TV show. Plan it out for six seasons in advance, covering the lead in to the series, the four years it ran, and the aftermath. It'd be the biggest guilty pleasure in years.

  5. I think somebody already did the "behind the scenes" thing with the Patridge Family, didn't they? No reason it wouldn't work again. I'd say it's only a matter of time.

  6. As someone who considers 70s Maureen McCormick to be his dream girl, this is about the hottest thing I could possibly imagine.

    Thank you, baseless internet rumors.
