While “The Brady Bunch” featured a fun, loving family, there was a lot more happening behind-the-scenes of the popular series.
From drugs to feuds to hookups, the stars of the show lived complicated lives outside of their roles on the television sitcom.
Some of them even developed harsh feelings toward each other. One of which was allegedly between Eve Plumb and Maureen McCormick. While the two were family on the show, in real-life it was often difficult to be near each other.

It was no secret on-set that Plumb and McCormick disliked each other.
In fact, years later, one cast member discussed the general dislike between the two. According to People in 2020, Susan Olsen said she was always put in an uncomfortable situation.
“I think it’s kind of petty. From day one with these two I have always been in the middle, and now it’s at the point where there isn’t even a desire to communicate through me,” Olsen said.
After “The Brady Bunch” there was a discussion over a possible reunion show. Allegedly, this was shut down due to this years-old feud between the on-screen sisters.
Only recently did the cast all get-together. It was for the HGTV show “A Very Brady Renovation.” Despite these rumors, Plumb said that it was great to reconnect with the entire cast.
When discussing the rumor of a feud she said, “”There was no—People like to say things. There was no remedy needed,” according to E! Online.

It’s unclear what happened on the set of the beloved sitcom behind-the-scenes. However, it appears everyone has moved on from whatever tension or feuds used to be a part of the family dynamic.
Since the show, McCormick has played Wendy in a “Peter Pan” production, has been in “The Brady Bunch” spinoffs, has a country album, is an author, and is also the host of HGTV’s “Frozen in Time.”
Her meme, “Sure, Jan” from the show continues to pop up on the internet.
She is married to Michael Cummings and the two had one daughter together.
She released her country album back in 1995 and it was called “When You Get a Little Lonely.” This is her only solo record deal that she recorded with her brother’s record label, Phantom Hill. Some songs on the album include “I’d Have to Call It Love,” “Tell Mama,” and “Some Somebody.”
Although her country album received generally negative reviews from critics, McCormick’s work acting continues to be praised.
