Are There Nuggets Of Truth To The Brady Bunch Rumors? One Producer Breaks It Down
The Brady Bunch has enjoyed decades of success as one of the most popular sitcoms on TV. However, oftentimes with success such as this, comes some big rumors. And, The Brady Bunch players have certainly not been immune to this.
During a recent discussion with Fox News Digital, The Brady Bunch producer Lloyd Schwartz discusses one big rumor that has swirled around the popular series for years. This, of course, is the affair – or date, depending on who you ask – that is rumored to have occurred between Greg Brady player Barry Williams and Florence Henderson, the actress who portrays his on-screen mother, Carol Brady.
According to The Brady Bunch producer, this is a big rumor that is “all smoke and mirrors.” In fact, the producer says, Henderson was happily married with four kids.
According to Schwartz, the rumors began when Barry Williams’s dad drove Hendeson’s four children to “see the singer” perform. After this, the producer notes, Barry’s dad drove them home. At the end of the night, Henderson “kissed him on the cheek.”
At the time, this is where it all ended. However, once Barry Williams’s autobiography was released with him discussing his crush on Henderson, this event quickly grew in the proverbial rumor mill.
