    The only question to ask about Carol Brady is, Why do I love her so much? I hated everything she represented. She seemed like such a drone, like a Stepford Wife. I wanted to slap her and scream, 'Get A Life!' Ger shag hair drove me insane. And those clothes - full maxiskirts and paisley pantsuits. No one should were hear-to-toe paisley. No one! But in sptie of it all, I love Carol Brady. And its's all because of the brillance of Florence Henderson. She made the character so endearing. I mean, she adopted three kids on top of the three she already had. Who would do such a thing? It was such a fantasy - this overextended family pretending to be happy and well adjusted - and I really think that's why people watched it.

  • This past weekend, Florence did a segment on Weekend Today regarding step-grandparenting. The segment included interviews with a step-mother and her stepson and an interview with grandparenting expert Arthur Kornhaber, during which Florence showed a picture of her own step-grandson, who's 10. In the interview with the step-mother and stepson, they talked about how the relationship between them was rocky at first, but had improved over the years. The stepson had gotten over his resentment of his stepmother by the time his children were born, so the children's relationship with her as their step-grandmother was no different than their relationship with their biological grandparents. Arthur Kornhaber talked about how it is the adults' responsibility to foster a loving relationship between step-grandparents and step-grandchildren and Florence agreed with him in her closing comments to Weekend Today anchor Soledad O'Brien.
