Ann B. Davis, Alice on ‘Brady Bunch,’ Dies at 88

1 June 2014 3:49 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ann B. Davis, known for her role as the beloved housekeeper on “The Brady Bunch,” died Sunday in San Antonio, Texas. She was 88.

Davis fell and hit her head in the bathtub on Saturday, causing a subdural hematoma, and never regained consciousness.

Davis was a favorite of “The Brady Bunch” as Alice, the often comedic housekeeper that lived with the iconic TV family. The ABC show, created by Sherwood Schwartz, ran from 1969-74 and would go on to spawn several movies and a spinoff series.

What Happened? Child Stars We Thought Would be Hot Adults!

Let’s be honest, puberty isn’t kind to any of us. Weird things happen to chins, hair gets fuzzy, voices get squeaky and deepen (especially awkward if you’re a girl). But it’s normal! As non-celebrity civilians, we learn to develop stellar personalities to distract from the acne and move on with our lives. Not so easy for child stars. For kids and teens whose careers depend on their adorability factor — who can support their entire family for a year with their dimples — losing their cutie-pie good looks can be disastrous. Look at The Brady Bunch’s Susan Olsen. As Cindy Brady, the lisping daughter with the boing-boing blonde curls, she was a star. But sadly, she grew up to look like a tough-but-lovable bartender in a biker-themed pub in San Fran. Or Tevin Campbell, who was prom-date-perfect as a tween/teen R&B hottie. »
