Vince Vaughn is attempting to put a twist on the old school classic television show The Brady Bunch. In the next generation Brady Bunch, the story will now follow the youngest male Bobby Brady. He is now an adult with his own children and he marries a woman with her own kids and in a modern day twist, they have one kid together.
Also, in an accurate reflection of the times, their exes are still in the families lives, much different than the classic show where the creator Sherwood Schwartz was forbidden to address what exactly happened to Carol Brady’s “Baby’s Daddy”. The topic was never brought up on the show.
The new BB will be produced by the son of the legendary Sherwood Schwartz, Lloyd. His father was the writer, creator and producer of Gilligan’s Island, It’s About Time, and Harper Valley PTA to name a few, so the Brady Bunch is in his blood. So far there has been no cast announced.
The Brady Bunch will join a list of re-boots, some which have been successful and some that have been simply disasters. Remember, Knight Rider, Charlie’s Angels and The Bionic Woman?
However there have been some remakes that are doing and continue to do well. CBS got it right with Hawaii Five-0 and the CW’s 90210 is still running strong. The jury is still out on TNT’s Dallas but it’s at least on the air.
Let’s see what Vaughn can do with this classic. As a Brady Bunch fan, I’m in for at least the first 2 episodes.Read more...
His name is Ronald Richards. He tells TMZ that the pictures of Taylor Armstrong all lumped up, are phony.
How does he say the injury occurred?
He says that they are either a plastic surgery incident or getting hit with a football. What is this, Brady Bunch?
‘If Mr. Armstrong was the cause of those injuries he would have been arrested and prosecuted,’
Is this guy serious? What about the charges of battery from his first wife? What about the allegations that he beat the kids? …and I’m crossing “plastic surgery incident” off the list.
Then you have to look at it from another angle…
If you watched the show, you have to admit that she didn’t act like your typical abused housewife. She deliberately went against Russell wishes when she gave away the dog he brought for their daughter. This is something that an abused wife would never do. She was a volunteer at a domestic abuse charity and never reached out for help. Her name is still on all the fraud allegations charges, could this be away of her trying to disassociate herself from Russell? To show evidence that she didn’t know what was going on, now that Russell is dead there is no one to refute these allegations….so she thought. Not to mention, ET paid Taylor Armstrong six figures for exclusive rights to the photo.
Why would this Richards, come out and defend a dead guy if he didn’t believe in what he was saying.
The plot thickens!!

Talk about heroes! Sherwood Schwartz created some of the shows that are responsible for shaping America. I know that sounds like a rather huge statement, but it’s definitely true.
Really, can anyone deny the impact that “The Brady Bunch” had on society?
Schwartz born in Passaic, NJ (Shout out to my Jersey Peeps!) , began writing for Bob Hope’s radio show back in 1939. He then served as head writer on the infamous “Red Skeleton Show”. Gilligan was his way of escaping mentally. He was rumored not to get along with Red Skeleton, to the point where in his contract face to face meetings with the comic were not allowed!
Once Gilligan’s island was released, Schwartz was severely ridiculed for the show. A popular writer at the time, Rick DuBrow wrote,
“It is impossible that a more inept, moronic or humorless show has ever appeared on the home tube,”
“Gilligan’s Island” ended running for a total of 96 episodes and 3 made for TV movies. The shows continued to grow once they were all colorized and ran in syndication.
The “Brady Bunch” ran for 5 Season and 117 episodes. Believe it or not, it never broke into the top 30 but it achieved iconic success, so much where the main actors and actresses were type casted into their roles for life.
FACT: An episode of the show has been broadcast somewhere in the United States and abroad every single day of every single year through at least 2008.
Schwartz was rumored to be working on a film version of Gilligan’s Island when he died early Tuesday morning.
He died of natural causes at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
