Eve Plumb is Not Bitter

Chrome-Napkin-Holder---Web

I wanted to post something a little lighter today.  I was going to post a video of The Brady Bunch singing as the Silver Platters.  But then, I found this clip of Eve Plumb on the Jenny Jones show, probably from around 15 years ago.  The clip is called “Eve Plumb is NOT BITTER, DAMN IT!”  It made me laugh.  Jan was my favorite Brady, I actually sent her a fan letter when I was little and she sent me an autographed picture that I still count among my treasures.  When I first moved to LA, I found myself standing behind her in the checkout at Ralph’s once.  I so wanted to tell her what a happy part of my childhood she was.  I did not say anything, I suspect any contact would have made her feel uncomfortable.  Also, it could have turned out llke the time I went up to Shirley Knight at a different Ralph’s and told her how much I loved her and with each word I said I sounded like I’d breathed in a little more cocaine-laced helium.  Eve Plumb still acts, she recently appeared off-Broadway, but has also become known as a painter.  I’ve included a couple of her paintings.  I hesitated about posting the Jenny Jones clip, I’ve seen her in several more recent interviews where she is much more gracious about her Brady legacy.  I think maybe time, and perhaps her success as a painter, has softened some of the bitterness.  Either way, she’s still my favorite Brady!  And you know what, just because I can, I posted the Silver Platters video, too!Image

  1. Eve Plumb wants to have her cake and eat it, too… She has no problem using her fame as Jan Brady to plug her career pursuits, but doesn’t want people to talk to her about The Brady Bunch. You can’t have it both ways, Eve.
