Brady Bunch feud? Or no Brady Bunch feud?
A planned reunion on the Today Show of the TV family did not happen this week and RadarOnline.com reported exclusively that a feud between Maureen McCormick and Eve Plumb was largely responsible.
Before you could say, “Oh Marcia,” they both denied it, but Christopher Knight’s representative admitted in an email to RadarOnline.com: “Eve never does Brady press, especially if Maureen is involved. This went on for decades.”
So now RadarOnline.com has reached out to the definitive authority to settle this matter once and for all. Barry Greenberg is the man who last brought the Brady Bunch together, serving as talent producer for the 2004 TV show, “The Brady Bunch 35th Anniversary Reunion Special: Still Brady After All These Years.”
“Of course there’s a Brady feud,” Greenberg told RadarOnline.com, confirming that Marcia and Jan, er, Maureen and Eve, simply do not get along.
The root of the problem? Says Greenberg: “One of the teasers for Maureen McCormick’s successful 2008 book “Here’s My Story” included an alleged teenage kiss between her and Eve Plumb. Plumb denied the incident and was not amused.”
Greenberg should know. He was not only the last person to reunite the Bradys, but he also managed McCormick at one time.
He also developed and taught a course for the University of Southern California about the culture of celebrity. He told RadarOnline.com: There are six different ways in which the ‘kids’ view their place in American popular culture. The best of the “bunch” are comfortable, even proud having been Brady’s.
“Barry Williams has embraced his inner Greg Brady, and is comfortable knowing that his character is forever part of our culture. Christopher Knight left TV for a successful career in the tech field and returned several years ago to entirely new and exciting opportunities. Likewise, Mike Lookinland spent many years on the other side of the camera.
“It seems, as an onlooker, that Eve Plumb is the least comfortable having the “Brady” label.”
So there you have it. Class dismissed!
