Brady Bunch lesbian affair a joke, Marcia says

Tbd-maureenmccormick071009 Remember how Maureen McCormick, who played Marcia on The Brady Bunch, said that she and Eve Plumb, who played Jan, were lesbian lovers on the set? Yeah, it seems Eve wasn't too happy about that. According to Maureen, anyway, who says Plumb is holding out on a planned cast reunion on the Oprah Winfrey Show.

"All of us said yes except for one person, Eve Plumb, who used to be my best friend but now apparently wants to distance herself from the show and, most troubling, from me," McCormick wrote on "I have no idea why, unless she's mad at the joke I made a few years ago that we'd had a lesbian love affair. I made the crack to be funny -- and for shock value. I'm sorry if she took offense."

Actually, Maureen joked about it as a promotional stunt for her autobiography, Here's the Story, which was published last year and became a best seller. But Plumb's agent told the New York Post's Page Six that "no one from Oprah called. We haven't turned down anything. There's no feud." Way to stay relevant, Marcia.
