Florence Henderson’s slinky black lace dress and sexy Rumba moves on ‘Dancing with the Stars‘ this week were surely saucy enough to get someone’s fire burning, but who would’ve thought it would’ve been her former costar (and onetime date) Barry Williams?
That’s right, ‘The Brady Bunch‘ mom revealed to reporters after Tuesday’s results show this juicy tidbit: “I got several text messages from Barry Williams, Greg. And he said, ‘Great energy. Your moves were great.’ He said, ‘I’m so jealous of Corky Ballas.’ Well, you know we dated, so there you have it. He’d be a great guest on this show because he can dance. He can sing. He’d be a terrific guest,” she added.
In the audience on Monday night was another ‘Brady’ kid, Christopher Knight with his wife, model Adrianne Curry. If you reality TV fanatics recall, Mrs. Brady popped up on their reality show, ‘My Fair Brady,’ and drama ensued when she seemed disapproving of their relationship. But that’s water under the bridge now. “Oh, yeah. It was kind of blown up and misunderstood.”
The sound byte of the evening, though, goes to her parting words to this week’s booted dancer, Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino? Drum roll please…. “Ohhh, Mike.” [Laughs] “Everybody wants me to repeat that line. Very good,” she told the reporter. (For those too young to remember ‘The Brady Bunch,’ it’s what she would say to her husband on the show all the time. But it’s all in the delivery!)
As for next week’s TV show theme song week, Henderson says ABC is still trying to get clearance to use ‘The Brady Bunch’ song for her performance.
“They are working on it,” she said. “And if not, we have to dance to ‘The Addams Family.’ Yeah. They were a very nice family. I don’t know if I would be Cousin It or Morticia. Anyway, we’ll see what happens. I can’t imagine America wouldn’t be going, ‘Why isn’t she dancing to ‘The Brady Bunch’ theme?’
How bummed will you be if Henderson can’t dance to ‘The Brady Bunch?’ Show Flo some love in the comments below.
