Be bewitched by Jenny Piccolo, Tabitha Stephens and Cindy Brady hanging out!
April 25th, 2017 under 60s, 70s, 80s, The Brady Bunch. [ Comments: 1 ]


Something people outside of Hollywood don’t realize is that a lot of child stars are friends with other child stars from their age group. Many of them are up for the same roles, so they get to know one another and commiserate with each other at auditions. They have a bond that lasts until adulthood and beyond. Therefore, when one of them sadly passes away, it brings them together.

Yesterday, Cathy Silvers from Happy Days invited Erin Murphy aka Tabitha Stephens from Bewitched and Susan Olsen form The Brady Bunch over to talk about their friend Erin Moran, who passed away from 4th stage lung cancer at the age of 56 on Saturday. The three actresses grew up Moran behind the camera, so they lost a dear friend from their youth. For Silvers not only did she lose a friend off camera but one that also played her best friend on Happy Days. For Murphy, she lost someone with the same first name and first initial of her last name. I wouldn’t be surprised if they were sometimes confused for the other one during auditions. Finally, for Olsen it is someone who also knows what it is like the play the youngest child to a big family on TV. Besides all of that, it is someone who knows what they went through growing up in the public eye. Like I said, it is an unbreakable bond.

When it comes to three actresses, who ages range from 52-55, they all look phenomenal. You know, I hope some network sees them together and thinks we should give them a show together like The Golden Girls or Designing Women or Hot In Cleveland. Could you imagine awesome that would be? I would watch! I can totally see Pop TV having with it like they are with Return of the Mac and Hollwyood Darlings! It would be a hit and maybe they can get Alison Arngrim to join in on the fun.

Update: They talked to The Insider about their friend, so get the tissues ready as you watch their interview.

Jan Brady is Elyse Keaton
April 4th, 2017 under 70s, Stage, The Brady Bunch. [ Comments: none ]


I don’t know if you heard, but Family Ties is getting the stage musical treatment this Summer according to Broadway.com. The production will make its debut this June in Ohio, Dayton not Columbus like the ’80s sitcom, but having it in the same state is still pretty groovy.

Talking about groovy, what can make it even groovier? How about Eve Plumb, best known for playing Jan Brady on The Brady Bunch, is playing the matriarch Elyse Keaton. The role that was originated by Meredith Baxter. Proving everything in Hollywood is related, I think!

I wonder how Marcia, Marcia, Marcia feels about this, I am sure she is just as excited as we are.

On November 24th, Florence Henderson passed away and just over a month later four of her TV children got together to remember her. Maureen McCormick aka Marcia, Marcia, Marcia, Christopher Knight aka Peter, Mike Lookinland aka Bobby and Susan Olsen aka Cindy were reunited with her real family to honor the woman they loved as a mom. By the smiles on their faces, you can tell they remember as fondly as we do which a great thing of you consider The Brady Buch debuted almost 50 years ago.
When it comes to why Eve Plumb and Barry were Williams were not there, we will just assume they were both busy!

Before Florence Henderson was driving a station wagon on The Brady Bunch, she was singing the praises of Oldsmobile. How beautiful was the 24 year old in that 1958 commercial?
