The Maureen McCormick / Eve Plumb Feud
Maureen McCormick played Marcia, the eldest Brady daughter, and the that " Mo" always felt inferior to Eve Plumb, who played middle sister Jan. of all marriages at that time included a child from a previous relationship. The longstanding feud between Maureen McCormick, who played oldest sister Marcia on "The Brady Bunch," and Eve Plumb, who played middle sister Jan, is to blame for the cancellation of a Brady Bunch reunion appearance, senshido.info reports. The Brady kids were set to appear on a. A new book by Maureen McCormick, who played Marsha on the "Brady her TV sister, Jan, played by actress Eve Plumb in "Here's the Story.
Anyway, he also talked alot about what the kids' relationships were like on and off the set. He did talk a little bit about how he tried to get Maureen and Barry to stop flirting with each other so they could behave more like brother and sister. He even said something like he watches the show today and notices how flirty "Marcia" and "Greg" were at times.
But the thing he talked mostly about was how catty Maureen and Eve's relationship was. He said something along the lines of it making Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton looking like something out of Disney, or something. Anyway, he said most of their clashes came from Maureen being very sweet and Eve being more moody and rebellious. Yeah, he did admit alot of their quarrels were over guys, particularily Christopher Knight. Sherwood even admitted that he was shocked Eve even agreed to to "The Brady Brides" then "A Very Brady Christmas", but then later learned money was the object.
But he admitted much of the reason why "Brady Brides" didn't fly was because Eve and Maureen were so hostile towards each other. So, when they filmed "Brady Christmas", he did his best to keep them as far away from each other as possible, though he did admit there was still tension between them.
He did say that Maureen really wanted to be friends with Eve, because she had very few girlfriends and aside from Florence Henderson, Ann B. Davis and Susan Olsen, was mainly friendly with the guys on the show.

But she really wanted to be friends with Eve, because they were closer in age. He would even at times pull Eve to the side and try to talk her into being friends with Maureen, but Eve would say things like how she only saw Maureen as her co-star and an acquaintence and not a friend. He said it all basically boils down to jealousy and cattiness and teenage hormones.
Anyway, I'll try to locate the article for you, but in the meantime, I hope I did a decent job at remembering the details. If you can find the link, please post it here. I'd love to read the article. That would be great if you could find the article, but in the meantime, you did an excellent job of remembering all that stuff! Steve Carras They are both in their 90s and still don't speak. No relation to colleagues Ina Ray, a female bandleader of the forties or singer June.
I can relate to this story though. I know how resentment can make you into a person you don't want to be. It's probably best that Eve doesn't speak to her if Maureen was such a toxic person to her.
Some relationships are just not meant to have a happy ending or be fixed. In Maureen's book, the two were shoplifting and Maureen somehow managed to get away, leaving all the blame on Susan. Shoplifting, drugs, promiscuity, geez Maureen has been through a lot. I feel a lot of empathy for her, personally.
Her family life was a complete mess. I've heard that Eve was always extremely jealous of Maureen's popularity and looks, there were even times when Eve would have one of her boyfriends visit the set and Maureen, always being the flirt, would strut around in a short skirt. Then there was their crush on Chris, which I don't think is still an issue today both women are happily married and have kids of their own but back then both of them were fighting for his attention.
Of course, Eve won out. It was only fair being that Maureen was already shagging Barry Williams. I even read that when the kids had their singing group, Eve really grew resentful of Maureen allegedly because Maureen was being paid more money and was being given special treatment and had a huge ego about the whole thing. From that point on, Eve and Maureen were barely even on speaking terms, which might be the reason why during the final season you could really feel the tension between them during their scenes together.
Then when "The Brady Bunch Variety Hour" was on, Eve decided not to take part in it smart move, Eve because partially she was filming a TV movie and because she didn't want to be associated with her character or "The Brady Bunch" Even during "The Brady Brides", which Eve did take part in mostly for the money, the two of them were constantly at odds with each other.
By "A Very Brady Christmas", if you notice both of them are barely even in the same room with each other in the movie, because Eve and Maureen were not speaking at all.
I think, even now, Eve has always been resentful of all the attention aimed at Maureen, even thougn Eve is a much better actress and at least in my opinion far more attractive and you can sort of understand that because Eve had to spend years of her adolescence playing second fiddle and her character, Jan, was always being portrayed as a loser, while Marcia was the "pretty" and "popular" one who always got the guy and was an overachiever.
I always loved Jan because as geeky as she was in the earlier seasons, there was always something very beautiful about her and she was more relatable.

Now, Maureen's going around spilling secrets not only about herself, but about her castmates and I here she really goes to town on Eve, talking about her attempted trysts with Chris Knight and other really private stuff nothing about the alleged "lesbian" thing. Lastly, I really can't blame Eve for being angered by Maureen saying she had a thing for her, which started all these rumors to begin with, because she never really came out and corrected it afterwards.
At least my avatar picture currently [Amanda Bynes] is not like that. Maureen got Susan in trobule for shoplifting. Susan Coswill hated Maurren intensely. I hope that happens. Not everyone has to get along Olsen done with there fewed and i can't blame her But Maureen allow someone to take rap of something else I take eve plumb over Marica anyday at this point.
I mean we don't have to agree but to side with Maureen without full fact is just sad I don't Muarren bad looking but she got jealous of eve cause she developed early and i read comments that jan didn't want to wear bra Blonde Ambition I never said that I am siding with one or the other. All I said is Maureen tried to contact Eve at some point and Eve turned it down.

Eve was jealous of Maureen's looks and the attention she received. I know a lot of you posted that you think Eve is prettier but I think that's all women posting that. Maureen's way better looking than Eve and always was. Not that I like Maureen better. Things like that which happen when you are a teenager stay with you for the rest of your life, so it's not surprising they didn't and don't get along.Maureen McCormick - "When, Jenny? When?" clip (1979)
I think it's more than amusing that Maureen's life started falling apart when her looks stopped getting her work, even if they were crappy Love Boat and Fantasy Island appearances. Everyone has the right to be friends and stay in touch with whomever they want to and Eve shouldn't have to be nice to Maureen because it makes fans who grew up watching the show feel better.
If memory serves correctly, I think Maureen may have been jealous of Eve because she "developed" earlier than she did or had more pleasing physical attributes. Maureen is the more obvious beauty, but Eve's was stunning once your eyes adjusted. However; I think they'd have a better chance of at least being cordial to each other if stuff supposedly said about each other years on back wasn't constantly rehashed.

They finally chose Reed because he had marquee value from his co-starring role on the popular series The Defenders.
Like many teens in the s, Barry was known to occasionally share a doobie among friends. Barry dutifully reported to the set, but it became obvious to all present that something was not quite right with Greg Brady. Aside from his stumbling over nothing in the driveway, there was the glazed look in his eyes and the stilted delivery of his few lines regarding Dad's purchase of a boat that tipped the producers off and caused furious re-writes to reduce Greg's part in this episode.
From his notes he developed a concept for a TV series he called Yours and Mine. He shopped his script to the three major networks and was turned down each time.
Three years later, United Artists released a film called Yours, Mine and Ours, starring Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda, which told the story of a widow with eight children who married a father of ten. In the early days of rehearsals, Florence Henderson commented to the producers about Bob's reticence in kissing scenes.
With many years of theater on her resume, she had an intuition when it came to fellow actors and boldly asked Sherwood Schwartz at one point "Is there something wrong with me, or is Bob Reed gay?
