· Jersey Shore's The Situation has a book coming out called Here's the Situation (very Here's the Story by Maureen McCormick, no?). The best part of the cover isn't even the tag "A Guide to Creeping on Chicks, Avoiding Grenades, and Getting in Your Gtl on the Jersey Shore"; it's that blue, swirly young-adult backdrop! Reminds me of a good Nickelodeon read from the mid-'90s. Clarissa's Guide to Explaining It All, etc. For that reason alone I'll buy it in hardcover. [Ontd] »
One of the most famous TV stories is the one about a lovely lady, her three very lovely girls, and a man named Brady with three boys of his own. This is of course the theme song to The Brady Bunch, Sherwood Schwartz's idea of a modern blended family.
Robert Reed and Florence Henderson play the perfect parents, and Barry Williams, Christopher Knight, Mike Lookinland, Maureen McCormick, Eve Plumb, and Susan Olsen are their rambunctious and too-good-to-be-real kids. Rounding out the clan is Ann B. Davis as their lovable housekeeper. The TV show became even more popular in reruns and has taken its share of flak for its storylines.
The one star not mentioned or seen in the Brady Bunch opening theme is the Brady house. It was however shown in every one of the sitcom's episodes and sported a modern look that »
Maureen McCormick, taking potshots at other reality stars is So un-Brady-like of you!
Catfight! Maureen ‘Marcia Brady’ McCormick has her claws out for another blond with a big family: Kate Gosselin!
Maureen, 53, a former Celebrity Fit Club contestant, said she’d never appear on another reality show, specifically one like Dancing With the Stars, because, “I dance like that blond with the hair extensions!” page2live.com points out.
Ouch. Unfortunately the 35-year-old mom of eight Does dance pretty badly — she and partner Tony Dovolani were voted off Dwts April 20.
Hey Kate, we wouldn’t take that as Too much of an insult. Maureen is clearly jealous of your ‘do. Maybe you can do her a solid and slip her the number of your stylist, Ted Gibson. Just ‘sayin — maybe if Maureen had her Brady hair back, she’d be a little bit nicer!

0 false 18 pt 18 pt 0 0 false false false "American Pie" was a hilarious classic 1999 high school comedy that launched the careers of Tara Reid (well, briefly), Jason Biggs (where'd he go?) Alyson Hannigan, Shannon Elizabeth (again, Mia) Sean William Scott, Mena Suvari, Christina Millian, and Chris Klein.
The old gang got together again for "American Pie 2" and "American Wedding" which didn't quite capture the magic of the first one. But "Twilight: New Moon" director Chris Weitz and his "Pie" director bro Paul Weitz hope to get the original cast back together again soon.
Universal is seriously considering it but it's still in the very early formative stages," Chris tells The Dish Rag. "But my brother and I are very keen to play some kind of role and we're hoping to get as many of the kids, as we like to call them, to be in it."
Weitz describes the sequel as "a reunion, »
Plumb and McCormick, who played onscreen sisters Jan and Marsha Brady, fell out in 2007 after McCormick published her autobiography Here's the Story, alleging she enjoyed a lesbian affair with her former co-star. Plumb denied the claims, accusing McCormick of making up the story to sell more books.
The reported feud is said to have derailed a planned Brady Bunch reunion on the Oprah Winfrey Show in 2009, and subsequent plans for the cast to get together again on America's Today show this week (beg01Mar10) also fell through.
A spokesperson for TV network NBC put the cancellation of Wednesday's reunion down to "scheduling conflicts," while online gossips blamed the alleged ill feeling between the two actresses.
But a rep for Plumb is adamant there is no feud between the pair, telling Et Online that Plumb spent two weeks in New York last month and didn't want to return to the city again so soon for such a brief TV appearance. »

Plumb's rep tells "The Insider" that the actress considered the offer to appear with her former castmates, but decided to decline. The rep explains that Plumb had spent close to two weeks in New York just last month (for a gallery opening of her artwork and a charity appearance), and she didn't wish to return so soon for what would have been a brief TV appearance. The rep adds that Plumb did not intend to slight anyone.

This week, we also reported that a planned "Brady Bunch" reunion petered out when stars Maureen McCormick and Eve Plumb (Marcia and Jan Brady) refused to be on the same stage together due to their feud.

As we mentioned earlier, the cast of The Brady Bunch won't reunite thanks to a spat between Maureen McCormick (Marcia) and Eve Plumb (Jan). Movieline responds to this by saying: that never stopped this cast of compulsive reuniters before! Bring us Geri Reischl, or "Fake Jan"! Let's watch her in action as she promotes The Brady Bunch Variety Hour with the rest of the cast in 1977. She's who I want to see on Today clutching Ann B. Davis for emotional support. [YouTube] »
Marcia and Jan Brady are still battling. Someone call their peacemaker parents, Carol and Michael!
