Cindy Brady Spills! Susan Olsen Reveals The Brady Bunch's Darkest Secrets

Originally posted 06/11/2015 03:25PM

Just like Brady Bunch superfans, Susan Olsen can appreciate a good bit of gossip about the '70s sitcom.

In a recent interview with news.com.au, the actress who played Cindy Brady did not hesitate to dish about Brady feuds and hookups, the cast's shockingly low salaries and even her past as a marijuana farmer.

Since the actors playing the Brady kids worked in close quarters during the show's 1969–74 run, fans most often want to know who really hooked up with whom: "I think all of us did," Olsen, 53, admitted."We led a sheltered life for part of the year, so if there was anybody to get a crush on or try to date, it would be our counterparts."

Danny Trejo Channels The Brady Bunch's Marcia in Super Bowl Ad

Snickers' 2015 Super Bowl has gone back to the '70s with a character-actor twist on The Brady Bunch.

The latest riff on the candy bar's ongoing "You're Not You When You're Hungry" campaign enlists tough guy Danny Trejo in the role of Maureen McCormick's Marcia, whose face was famously pummeled by a football in a 1973 episode.

Trejo stars in the clip, showing off his trademark tattoos while he throws an ax-wielding tantrum while pretending to be the famous small-screen daughter.

Once Florence Henderson's mom Carol hands "Marcia" a Snickers and gets her oldest daughter back to her smiling self, Steve Buscemi shows up as Jan (originally played by Eve Plumb).

Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!

Maureen McCormick got famous playing the Brady Bunch's Little Miss Perfect. But in real life, the actress was sinking into depression and drug abuse.

Now, in her new book, Surviving Marcia Brady and Finding My True Voice, she's opening up about her two abortions, her battle with cocaine addiction and her long history of clinical depression.

"[I was] hiding the reality of my life behind the unreal perfection of Marcia Brady ...," the actress, 52, writes. "No one suspected the fear that gnawed at me."

In the memoir, out Tuesday, the former Celebrity Fit Club champ also comes clean about her romance with her TV sibling Barry Williams, who played Greg Brady. They shared a kiss, but McCormick says, the "timing was never right for us."

She also chronicles her dates with Michael Jackson and Steve Martin – not to mention wild parties at the Playboy Mansion.
