Brady Bunch Reunion

Here's the story of a lovely lady who reunited with her beloved sitcom family on a daytime talk show: The Brady Bunch (or at least some of them) got together on CBS's The Talk to celebrate Florence Henderson's—that's Carol Brady to loyal Brady Bunch viewers—80th birthday.

The Brady kids—Barry Williams (Greg), Christopher Knight (Peter), Mike Lookinland (Bobby) and Susan Olsen (Cindy)—were on hand for the nostalgia tour.

"I remember the first day of rehearsal, we did a script read through at the Lucy rehearsal hall at Paramount Studios. Of course it was like, ‘Here's your new family.' I remember so clearly meeting Florence," Olsen said. "I thought she was so beautiful and that she had eyes like a doe."

Henderson elicited a different reaction from Williams, who played the oldest son Greg.

"The first time I saw Florence, I thought ‘WOW!' I was 14 years old and I'm thinking, ‘Oh mama!' We all know she is hot," Williams said.

Later in the show, Williams planted a big smooch on the 80-year-old Henderson.

"Florence wasn't only a representative parent, in a lot of ways she was our mom, especially when we were working," Knight said. "I can be a little rambunctious—"

"That's putting it mildly," Henderson interjected.

Then Knight explained the infamous Florence stare that told him he had gone too far. Once a Brady, always a Brady.

Eve Plumb (Jan) and Ann B. Davis (Alice) sent video messages to the birthday girl. Maureen McCormick (Marsha), did not participate. Check out the full episode here.
