McCormick sat down with Et on Monday following Henderson's death from heart failure, and she opened up about the iconic star's impact on her life.

"She was an incredible example of how to life your life," McCormick tells Et's Nancy O'Dell. "She was that sweet. She really was. She was the loveliest of ladies."

Henderson famously played matriarch Carol Brady for the five immensely popular seasons of The Brady Bunch (1969-1974), while McCormick played her eldest daughter, Marcia. McCormick recalls being 12 years old when she met Henderson, who left an indelible first impression.

"I was just like, 'Wow! She's so beautiful,'" McCormick fondly remembers. "That woman in no makeup was the most beautiful thing."

"She's just one I could've spent more time with," shared Knight, on the verge of tears.

Henderson died from heart failure on Thursday, surrounded by her four children, her rep told Et. It's safe to say that over the years, Henderson remained America's favorite TV mom, but for Knight, she meant so much more. 

"There was one show where we were in the backyard with our mitts and throwing the ball around, and she was dressed like she was ready to play with us, and I think it was at that point I thought she was really cool," Knight recalled. "She could be one of the guys and very much like mom »

Florence Henderson Dies: The Brady Bunch Mom was 82

24 November 2016 11:39 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

We've lost a television icon.

Florence Henderson, known the world over for her role as the matriarch of The Brady Bunch, Carol Brady, has died at age 82.

Her manager, Kayla Pressman, shared the news in a statement to Associated Press on Thursday, saying Henderson died surrounded by friends and family.

Henderson was born the youngest of 10 children to farmers in Indiana.

After she graduated from high school, she attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City.

Henderson married Ira Bernstein, with whom she had four children, and divorced in 1985.

She later wed Dr. John George Kappas and they remained married until his death in 1987.

We're most familiar with her story as it began in 1969 on The Brady Bunch, but she was an accomplished stage actress before then, and was also a Today Show girl.

Interestingly, Henderson was also the first woman to host The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. »

A Three's Company movie is actually going to happen

20 April 2016 1:51 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

There was a time in the mid-90s where movies based on once-popular television properties were all the rage. There were a few successes in there like The Brady Bunch Movie and a pair of Addams Family flicks, but, if you sift through the rubble, you'll find more duds like The Honeymooners, Lost In Space, Bewitched and so on and so forth than real gems that have stood the test of time.

Review: 'The People V. O.J. Simpson' gives 'Marcia, Marcia, Marcia' a fair trial

8 March 2016 8:11 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A few thoughts on tonight's The People v. O.J. Simpson coming up just as soon as my stylist turns me into Rick James... How appropriate that we get to wrap up International Women's Day with "Marcia, Marcia, Marcia," The People v. O.J.'s sympathetic mash note to doomed O.J. prosecutor Marcia Clark. It's not straight-up hagiography, as it points out various mistakes Clark made during this period — continuing to dismiss Darden's concerns about letting Mark Fuhrman testify, taking a big stand in court about needing to get home to her kids and then asking her husband to watch them that night (a move that she had to know would blow up in her face, given the contentiousness of the divorce and her new hugely public identity) — but it also illustrates the many challenges she had to face throughout the trial that none of her male counterparts did.

25 great movie comedies that run for 90 minutes or less

Need a good laugh, but only got an hour and a half? Might we recommend this little lot...

I’m of the firm belief that films work most effectively when their runtime is 90 minutes or less. It forces an economy of story and dialogue which propels the film into its best self. No bloated middle, extended ending, or wasted stories here. This goes double for comedies. They should never outstay their welcome. But they seem to be getting longer, as we recently pointed out here.

So to refresh your movie comedy palette, here are 25 films that are 90 minutes or under. I’ve tried to avoid the more obvious ones, and shine a light on those comedies which might have gone a bit unappreciated over the years, but are well worth a hour and a half of your time. This lean runtime isn’t a guarantee of greatness of course, »
