‘Brady Bunch’ star Maureen McCormick reveals special way she’s honoring TV dad Robert Reed

Maureen McCormick still treasures the memories she has of her on-screen dad Robert Reed.

The actor, best known for playing beloved patriarch Mike Brady in “The Brady Bunch,” passed away in 1992 at age 59 after suffering from colon cancer for six months.

The pair starred in the popular series, which chronicled the misadventures of a large family after a widow and widower tied the knot, from 1969 until 1974. And McCormick, who played Marcia Brady, insisted they really were like family when cameras stopped rolling.

“I have a real love for gardening and gardens and being outdoors and Bob had a beautiful place in Pasadena and the most beautiful rose gardens,” the 63-year-old recently told Closer Weekly.

“It’s funny because my backyard is filled with roses now and I always think of him and there was one rose that had been at the Brady house when we first got there — it was taken out of the ground and put in a really special place, just right outside the family room to celebrate Bob which was so special,” she shared.

People magazine previously reported Reed took pride in his work, especially as an actor who studied at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and later made his mark in theater. Therefore, he wasn’t afraid to voice his opinions concerning the “Brady Bunch” scripts.

He would fire off sarcastic memos to Sherwood Schwartz, the show’s creator, as well as change the dialogue. But when he was truly frustrated with the quality of the scripts he would head “off to an Irish pub near the Paramount studio” to down three Scotches.

“I should have tried to get out of the show rather than inflict my views on them,” he admitted to the outlet before he died. “… I’m glad we did it. But I do not want it on my tombstone.”

In 2004, Florence Henderson, who played Reed’s on-screen wife Carol Brady, told the Miami Herald that the show embarrassed Reed, who had threatened to quit.

“He thought we should be doing Shakespeare,” she recalled. “I would say, ‘Bob, this is just a sitcom.’”

Still, Reed never forgot his TV family and even kept them in mind as he was dying.

“He called me and said, ‘Florence, I’m not going to make it. It would mean so much if you would tell the kids,’” Henderson recalled. “Each one I told and we were all crying.”

Earlier this month, McCormick also told Closer Weekly that Henderson, who passed away in 2016 at age 82 from heart failure, was on her mind.

“The biggest life lessons I have learned came from Florence, and that was, being able to find joy like in a big way,” she told the outlet. “I mean, I spent a lot of time with her before she passed away. And I truly believe she taught me so much about finding joy and I feel such joy again in my life. You know, I’ve gone through so many different things in my life… pretty amazing.”

The former child star revealed another lesson she learned from Henderson.

“Be around positive, good people that lift you up, that doesn’t tear you down, but just want to nurture you and you want to nurture them and you all work together,” McCormick explained. “You know, I think that’s really important.”

“Inclusion for everyone to me is a huge life lesson,” she continued. “And one thing my father always told me was to find the love and to look for love in each and every human being. And I think that’s really important.”

Just three days before her death, Henderson attended a taping of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” to cheer on McCormick, who was participating in the dance competition series.

“[Florence was] a person who wanted to spread love and laughter,” said McCormick on her friend to Fox News in 2017. “She loved people, she loved life. She’s born on Valentine’s Day, how perfect, right? [She was] just a great woman. Someone I really admired.”

German city offering $1.1 million if you can prove it doesn’t exist

A German city is offering a $1.1 million prize to anyone who can prove it does not exist.

The cash reward is in reference to the satirical and notorious Bielefeld Conspiracy, which originated in the early 1990s. As the conspiracy theory goes, this city in northwestern Germany is not actually real.

Now the town, which according to Atlas Obscura has 300,000 residents, a university and even a castle, is out to discredit the conspiracy theory by offering a large sum of money to anyone who can prove it’s more than a hoax.

According to reports, the Bielefeld Conspiracy began on the Internet after computer science student Achim Held joked that the city, far from real, was actually a fabrication created by the authorities.

“The conspiracy theory picked up speed and began to make the German population believe Bielefeld would not exist,” Bielefeld’s tourism page states.

The conspiracy is built around three questions: Do you know anybody for Bielefeld? Have you ever been to Bielefeld? Do you know anybody who has ever been to Bielefeld?

The city, close to eight centuries old, is seeking submissions from people who think they can prove Bielefeld isn’t real.. According to the website for the contest, “any kind of contribution is allowed” that will prove the conspiracy.

“We are excited about the creative submissions and are 99.99 percent sure that we will be able to refute any claims,” said the head of Bielefeld Marketing, Martin Knabenreich, DW reports.

2019 VMAs: John Travolta appears to mistake ‘Drag Race’s’ Jade Jolie for Taylor Swift

Oops!

John Travolta may have made the biggest gaffes of his illustrious career on Monday evening when he appeared to confuse Taylor Swift with one of her performers and pals.

The “Fanatic” star, 65, set social media ablaze when he seemingly mistook “RuPaul’s Drag Race” alum, Jade Jolie, for the “Look What You Made Me Do” songstress while handing out the award for video of the year alongside Queen Latifah at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.

VNAS 2019: TAYLOR SWIFT WINS TOP HONOR, CALLS OUT WHITE HOUSE IN ACCEPTANCE SPEECH

Twitter users apparently hit rewind on their television sets to see Travolta appear to offer the coveted Moonman to Jolie before she smiles at the actor and the two share a very quick laugh.

Tweeted one person: “john travolta giving taylor swift’s award to jade jolie FULLY thinking that it was her is the best thing that happened all night #VMAs.”

Echoed another individual: “JOHN TRAVOLTA THOUGHT JADE JOLIE WAS TAYLOR SWIFT AND HE WAS GIVING THE AWARD TO HER LMFAAAOOOO #VMAs.”

“I didn’t watch the VMAs because I’m #old but that clip of John Travolta giving Video of the Year to Drag Queen Taylor Swift instead of actual Taylor Swift has made my night. If only Adele Dazeem were there,” wrote another social media user, while also seemingly referencing Travolta’s 2014 Oscars’ mishap.

The official Twitter for the website, UPROXX, also questioned Travolta’s snafu: “Wait. does…does John Travolta not know who Taylor Swift is,” the outlet wrote along with laughing emojis.

Moments before, while Latifah and Travolta were presenting the award, the “Grease” alum also poked fun at himself, telling the “Star” actress that he wanted her to announce the winner because he would “mispronounce s— and f— it up.”

Back in 2014, Travolta infamously turned heads when he butchered “Frozen” star Idina Menzel’s name while introducing the artist ahead of her performance of “Let It Go” during the Academy Awards.

“Please welcome the wickedly talented, one and only, Adele Dazeem,” Travolta announced. A year later, the actor explained what happened on Jimmy Kimmel Live. (He said he had been waiting backstage when a page grabbed him and said he had 1 minute and 15 seconds until it was time to present.)

Meanwhile, for Swift’s part, the 29-year-old pop star won her trophy for her “You Need to Calm Down” video, in which the multi-platinum singer featured Jade and a number of other LGBTQ stars – many of whom accompanied Swift on stage to accept her victory.

TAYLOR SWIFT’S TRANSFORMATION FROM COUNTRY SINGER TO POLITICAL ADVOCATE

“I just want to say that this is a fan-voted award. So, I first want to say thank you to the fans because in this video, several points were made, so you voting for this video means that you want a world where we’re all treated equally,” Swift said.

She continued: “Regardless of who we are, regardless of how we identify, at the end of this video there was a petition — and there still is a petition for the Equality Act, which basically just says we all deserve equal rights under the law.

TAYLOR SWIFT KICKS OFF VMAS RED CARPET IN STYLISH POWER BLAZER

“And, I want to thank everyone who signed that petition because it now has half-a-million signatures, which is five times the amount that it would need to warrant a response from the White House,” added Swift while accepting the award. She then looked down at her wrist and tapped on it, seemingly referencing a watch.

The video for “You Need to Calm Down” – which also won the video for good honor – finishes with the words: “Let’s show our pride by demanding that, on a national level, our laws truly treat all of our citizens equally.” Before the video’s release, Swift announced that she supported the Equality Act.

Carol Roth: Barack and Michelle Obama’s $15 million house of hypocrisy

Westlake Legal Group ContentBroker_contentid-798e8caecee64437b684863823edff02 Carol Roth: Barack and Michelle Obama's $15 million house of hypocrisy fox-news/person/barack-obama fox-news/opinion fox-news/house-and-home fox news fnc/opinion fnc Carol Roth article 3662dffe-de40-5fac-a53c-4b9c3007c81f

Former President Obama and the former first lady have reportedly made a bid of approximately $15 million on a home in Martha’s Vineyard. The 7,000 square-foot house comes with 29 acres and would likely be a summer home. The family is known to have spent quite a bit of time on the island over past summers.

Unlike President Trump, who earned his money before taking office, the Obamas have benefited handsomely from their time in the White House. President Obama only earned the standard $400,000 salary when he was in office, but after leaving, he and his wife Michelle acquired a joint book deal worth $65 million, high-priced speaking engagements and a deal with Netflix. Now they are rolling in dough.

As a capitalist, I am all in favor of people making as much money as they want and spending it how they please. However, this lavish new abode is quite a statement in hypocrisy from the former president, who spent his presidency demonizing everyone else’s success.

OBAMAS PLACED AN OFFER ON ‘MEGA-EXPENSIVE’ ESTATE IN MARTHA’S VINEYARD: REPORT

From telling small-business owners they “didn’t build that” to the 2018 speech in which he said, “There’s only so much you can eat. There’s only so big a house you can have. There’s only so many nice trips you can take. I mean, it’s enough,” the former president has spent his life spreading messages that disparage success.

As many of my Twitter followers have pointed out, he must not believe in the climate change his Democratic peers are pushing. If he did, he would believe his $15 million investment on the small island will be underwater — quite literally — in just over a decade.

Politicians need to stop saying one thing while doing another. Living in a fancy house is admirable, but living in a glass house is contemptible.

More from Opinion

The spending is perfectly aligned with the hypocrisy and envy that continues to permeate the Democratic party. Whether it is Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., with his multi-million dollar net worth and three homes or Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who earned well into the six-figures teaching at Ivy League institutions, their definition of “too rich” seems to be one dollar more than whatever they happen to be worth at a given point in time.

Therein lies the rub. Too many in Democratic leadership peddle the politics of envy and victimhood to grab power, wealth and success for themselves. They indulge their followers in the lie that someone getting wealthy comes at someone else’s expense. While this is offensive, it is made worse by the fact that they do it specifically for their own gain, making the political class more powerful and the government more bloated all while damaging the concept of the American Dream.

I don’t begrudge the Obamas for getting a nice house — even though they “didn’t build that.” But politicians need to stop saying one thing while doing another. Living in a fancy house is admirable, but living in a glass house is contemptible.

‘Rude and cranky’ Bernie Sanders loses San Francisco restaurant owner’s vote: report

The owner of a San Francisco restaurant famous for hosting politicians said Sen. Bernie Sanders lost his vote in the 2020 presidential election after the Vermont Democrat was “rude and cranky” to his servers, a report said.

John Konstin, who owns the 111-year-old John’s Grill, told Politico many Democrats dined at his bistro while the Democratic National Convention was in town for a three-day event over the weekend. Konstin told Politico that Sanders arrived for dinner with about 15 members of his campaign team and was not nice to any of the staff and didn’t want to shake hands or have his picture taken.

“It was all very nice, except for cranky Bernie,” Konstin told Politico. “I think he was just hungry and didn’t want to be a politician. He lost my vote.”

Sanders’ campaign did not respond to an after-business-hours email from Fox News for comment. Lee Housekeeper, the media contact for John’s Grill, told San Francisco Gate that it’s uncharacteristic for Konstin to speak ill of his restaurant patrons.

“Bernie had to be in a terrible mood,” Houskeeper said. “Anyone in the public eye needs to understand when it’s time to order room service.”

Konstin told Politico that staff waiting on other Dems, including one large party with the Secretary of State of California Alex Padilla, lieutenant governor of California Eleni Kounalakis, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, had a more pleasant experience. He described Pelosi as “pure class.”

John’s Grill opened its doors in 1908 and was famously featured in Dashiell Hammett’s 1930 noir film “The Maltese Falcon,” the San Francisco Gate reported. The restaurant is popular among politicos and has pictures of politicians who’ve visited the establishment hanging on its wooden walls.

Thirteen presidential candidates attended the recent DNC meeting in San Francisco over the weekend. 2020 hopeful, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., dined out with her staff at San Francisco’s Ayala restaurant in the Union Square Hotel when she visited the city in June, the San Francisco Gate reported.

“She was absolutely wonderful and came into our kitchen,” Ayala General Manager Alexandra Loulias told the newspaper. “So complimentary of our staff. She took individual photos with everyone. Just the nicest lady.

CNN’s reporter Jim Acosta had another clash with President Trump, this time for not answering his question about climate change.

Trump made plenty of headlines from the G7 summit in France, but critics went after the president for skipping a meeting focused on climate change with other world leaders

Acosta attempted to ask the president, who referred to himself as an “environmentalist,” on whether or not he believes in climate change but failed to get a response.

“At the end of the news conference, I asked Trump whether he believed in climate change. He walked away from the stage and didn’t answer the question,” Acosta said.

“Trump walks away from perfectly capable of hearing the questions on whether he believes in climate change. He clearly heard and he didn’t want to answer it,” Acosta later added. “Saying you want ‘clean air’ and ‘clean water’ isn’t the same as recognizing the climate change threat.

The correspondent has had a long history of spats with the president, most memorably in November when Acosta refused to hand over the microphone to a staffer during a press conference. The Trump administration attempted to temporarily suspend the CNN reporter’s press credentials, which was foiled by a judge’s court order.

Lawrence Jones: Millennials don’t value patriotism as much as prior generations because of college ‘indoctrination’

Westlake Legal Group Jones-Hannity-FOX Lawrence Jones: Millennials don't value patriotism as much as prior generations because of college 'indoctrination' fox-news/us/education/patriotism fox-news/us/education/college fox-news/us/education fox-news/shows/hannity fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz article 606851bb-c4d3-54af-b0d1-397e1ca674fc

A new survey showing millennials valuing patriotism, family and religion less prominently than past generations is a result of liberal indoctrination on college campuses, according to Lawrence Jones.

America’s younger generations are in danger because of this ideological shift, Jones claimed Monday on “Hannity.”

“We’re teaching them on the college campuses… anti-American rhetoric, anti-capitalism, that Christianity is the only religion that’s bad,” he said.

“We’re not educating them about the other dangers of socialism. Right now the college campuses have been a cesspool for liberal indoctrination, and we’re getting ready to destroy an entire generation just because conservatives, quite frankly, haven’t paid attention to what’s been happening on our college campuses.”

MILLENNIALS CARE LESS ABOUT PATRIOTISM, RELIGION AND FAMILY THAN PREVIOUS GENERATIONS, STUDY SAYS

The survey, conducted by Wall Street Journal/NBC News, began 21 years ago when Americans were asked which values were most important to them and the majority responded that “principles of hard work, patriotism, commitment to religion and the goal of having children” were critical.

“Today, hard work remains atop the list, but the shares of Americans listing the other three values have fallen substantially,” Wall Street Journal reporter Chad Day wrote.

Patriotism being “very important” fell 9 percent, religion dropped 12 percent and having children fell a whopping 16 percent. Older participants still feel that patriotism is a priority, but younger people aren’t as enthusiastic.

“Among people 55 and older, for example, nearly 80 percent said patriotism was very important, compared with 42 percent of those ages 18-38 — the millennial generation and older members of Gen-Z,” Day noted before adding that the survey did find a few points of unity.

The study indicated that “a majority” of Americans are satisfied with the economy, while two-thirds aren’t confident the next generation will be “better off” than the current generation. The survey indicated the Democrats have changed more than Republicans.

On “Hannity,” Jones said American taxpayers are footing part of the bill for what he called indoctrination on campus.

“Our young people are in danger and we wonder why people like AOC and [Rep. Rashida] Tlaib, and “the Squad” are getting so much support. Their parents are paying for it and the taxpayers are paying for it,” he said.

NFL’s Matt Overton offers to buy tickets from Colts fans upset over Luck retirement

NFL player Matt Overton on Monday offered to buy the tickets of disgruntled Indianapolis Colts fans demanding refunds after the abrupt retirement of quarterback star Andrew Luck.

Overton, who played five seasons with the Colts, said on Twitter that he would be “more than happy” to buy season tickets from “angry fans” and donate them to charity.

“To any angry Colts season ticket holders who are seeking a refund, I’d be more than happy to buy your season tix off of you & donate them to @RileyChildrens patients & their families,” the Jacksonville Jaguars long snapper tweeted. “I’m serious.”

“Riley Hospital is near and dear to me,” Overton told local Indianapolis station WTHR. “It’s near and dear to the entire community of Indianapolis and if we can help these kids and families go to a game and cheer on their favorite team, the Colts, let’s make it happen.”

ANDREW LUCK POTENTIALLY WALKING AWAY FROM $500M WITH RETIREMENT

While it’s not clear how many people actually took up Overton’s offer, a Colts spokesman said the team received only a handful of calls seeking refunds, ESPN reports. The team franchise said sales for single-game and season tickets were selling as normal since Luck’s announcement.

Overton still lives in Indianapolis during the offseason and his fiancée is also from the city. The NFL star said he had not spoken to Luck since announcing his retirement but came to his former teammate’s defense against some of the harsh criticism online.

“You can obviously tell he’s going through a real big struggle and has been for quite some time now,” Overton told  WTHR. “People are questioning his character and his toughness and all that kind of stuff, and I just think it’s B.S.“

“The dude is incredibly strong. He’s obviously going through some very difficult decisions right now and made a very difficult decision to retire,” he added.

“It’s hard on the fan base. It’s hard on the team. It’s hard on the organization. And it’s hard for guys like me who played with him and friends to see him going through that. Just hopeful that he finds that peace and joy and his health going forward.”
