The Brady Bunch House
Fifty years after playing a family on television, Barry Williams (Greg), Maureen McCormick (Marcia), Christopher Knight (Peter), Eve Plumb (Jan), Mike Lookinland (Bobby) and Susan Olsen (Cindy) are reunited for A Very Brady Renovation on HGTV. The series will show the six stars renovating the historic television home. Each cast member takes on a different room. The series will share the Brady star’s stories and special memories, as they remodel the house.
Christopher Knight explained that “They divvied us up in different rooms sort of to become the Brady lead on that particular room or area.” He made sure that he was in room that fans would know him best!
“I don’t remember what I was to work on, but I said I got to work in the kitchen … because of pork chops and applesauce!”
Of course Peter Brady was going to remodel the kitchen area!
The Brady kids have a stellar team to help them renovate the historic home. This includes a few siblings including Property Brothers stars Jonathan and Drew Scott and Restored by the Fords Leanne and Steve Ford. The others helping out with this nostalgic renovation include: Good Bones’ Mina Starsiak and Karen E Laine, Flea Market Flip’s Lara Spencer, and Hidden Potential’s Jasmine Roth.
Brady Bidding War!
The bidding of the house alone could have warranted a series. Lance Bass lost out to HGTV, who purchased the home for $3.5 million. Barry Williams didn’t think much of the price.
“It was stupid because they paid like way too much. I mean like way, way too much for this house.”
Price aside, People reported that it seemed that house itself brought back priceless memories. Eve McCormick said: “I felt like I was back at Paramount Studios at stage five, walking in the front door, getting ready to film a scene. I felt Robert [Reed], Florence [Henderson] and Ann B. Davis in that living room so much. I was blown away.”
What’s Next For Brady Bunch House?
What is next for the remodeled Brady home? Greg Williams notes that as it is in a residential area, they can nix a very Brady Tour.
According to USA Today, HGTV president Jane Atman seems unsure about the fate of the historic home. “We’re making plans. We don’t have a set plan yet, but watch this space.”
Eve McCormick has her own hopes for the historic home. “Hopefully, this place will survive forever. It’s a part of history.”
The Brady Bunch Wagon
On Monday, the Brady wagon was given some Gas Monkey “attitude.” Fast N’ Loud had their own very Brady crossover in a Fast N’ Loud: Brady Car. Richard Rawlings was all over this very Brady wagon renovation!
