Susan Dey has ruffled some feathers – Partridge feathers.
Partridge Family cast members David Cassidy, Danny Bonaduce, Suzanne Crough and Brian Forster appeared on The Today Show Tuesday as part of Today’s week-long reunion of TV’s great families. Shirley Jones was a no-show, but Cassidy explained she’s touring, but wanted to be there. However, the cast wasted no time in taking a shot at Dey, aka Laurie Partridge, for being AWOL.
When Dey, the 57-year-old actress who also gained TV success on L.A. Law, was brought up, Cassidy said, “Susan who?”
“The only way you can reach Susan Dey is by teleprompter, she doesn’t come out of her cage,” Bonaduce said.
Cassidy said he loved Dey like a sister, but hasn’t seen her in years.
“If you’re out there and you’re watching Susan, we love you,” Cassidy said.
“Not me so much,” Bonaduce snarled. “You’re too good for us?”
For years, Dey has repeatedly refused to discuss her role on the 70s sitcom or take part in any cast reunions.
