‘The Brady Bunch’ Star Maureen McCormick Looks Back at Variety Hour with Tidbit About Robert Reed

by Courtney Blackann

“The Brady Bunch” actress Maureen McCormick had a bit of fun sharing a flashback video of herself performing on the show’s variety hour in a new social media post. She even poked some fun at her performance sharing what she wishes she’d done a bit differently.

In a post on Twitter, McCormick shared a video of her and the rest of “The Brady Bunch” gang dancing and grooving back in 1977. According to the post, the Brady kids are hamming it up to Billy Joel’s “Piano Man” along with Mac Davis’ “I Believe in Music.”

“I wish I had less bounce and more hip action.. FYI, Bob was having the time of his life!” the star shares about Robert Reed aka Mike Brady.

In the clip, the actors move in unison in bright orange jumpsuits for the gals. The guys wear white suits with an orange shirt. McCormick’s blonde hair looks every bit as bouncey as the rest of her moves. The actress dons a similar haircut to this day – and she looks as fantastic as ever.

“The Brady Bunch” Actress on Relationship with Florence Henderson

While Maureen McCormick was a teen when she starred on the show, she also had guidance from a nurturing presence that many child stars in her day lacked. Florence Henderson wasn’t just the sweet portrayal of a loving mother on “The Brady Bunch,” she was a real-life mentor.

Though she passed away five years ago in November, the actress is remembered fondly by her former cast mates. This includes McCormick, who shared a lovely tribute on the anniversary of the star’s death.

“The biggest life lessons I have learned came from Florence, and that was, being able to find joy like in a big way. I mean, I spent a lot of time with her before she passed away. And I truly believe she taught me so much about finding joy, and I feel such joy again in my life. You know, I’ve gone through so many different things in my life… pretty amazing,” McCormick says.

She goes on to add:

“Be around positive, good people that lift you up, that doesn’t tear you down, but just want to nurture you, and you want to nurture them, and you all work together. You know, I think that’s really important,” McCormick continued.
