#Fact
1Surrogate grandmother of Michael (Susan Olsen son).
2Both actresses who played the part of Carol Brady, Florence Henderson in the Brady Bunch TV show and Shelley Long in the Brady Bunch Movies were both born in Indiana. Shelley was born in the Indian Village neighborhood in Fort Wayne, and Florence was born in Dale, IN.
3Her idol when she was young was Jane Wyman. She frequently enjoyed watching her movies.
4Neighbor of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
5The 'Weird Al' Yankovic video, "Amish Paradise," featured herself in the role originally portrayed by Michelle Pfeiffer. Reportedly, Henderson jumped at the chance to be featured in the parody, after seeing the Coolio video.
6When Henderson's own show The Brady Bunch (1969) vs. Shirley Jones's The Partridge Family (1970) were ruling the prime time remotes, the tabloids couldn't get enough of any fodder suggesting a brewing feud between the 2 leading female stars; but uncontentious and non-competitive as the two gentle ladies were, there were no takers, and the "feud stories" died early deaths.
7For a decade, Henderson was a spokesperson for Polident Denture Cleanser, (1998 to 2008).
8While being married to Ira Bernstein, Henderson and John Lindsay were reportedly having an affair.
9Her favorite food is coleslaw.

11Despite her 1985 divorce from Ira Bernstein, she still remains friends with him.
12Before she was a successful actress and talk show hostess, she once sang a song with Bobby Troup, called "This Can't Be Love.".
13Her surrogate grandson is autistic (which is Susan Olsen's son, Michael).
14Her mother had played the following musical instruments: piano, guitar and juice harp.
15The only recollection she had ever had as a small child was she remembered the incident of her father where she had on a calico dress, and her father had pinned that on her, whilst wearing a safety pin on her neck.
16Had always wanted to be either a doctor or a nun: instead she became a television personality, as well as an actress.
17Was offered the female lead role as Carol Brady, because she knew nothing about filming. She was also an unfamiliar actress at the time. Also, she was the producers third choice.
18All of her The Brady Bunch (1969) former TV kids, celebrated her 80th Birthday. [2014].
19Just before Ann B. Davis's death, she would sing a "Happy Birthday," song to Henderson, annually.
20One of her co-stars Christopher Knight actually brought the original pilot script for The Brady Bunch (1969), though Henderson wasn't a part of the original cast, that it featured Joyce Bulifant as Carol and Kathleen Freeman as Alice. The producer Sherwood Schwartz was very disappointed they didn't get along, so they rehired Henderson as Carol Brady and Ann B. Davis as Alice.
21Shares the same birthday with Hugh Downs, who's 13 years Henderson's senior.
22Her favorite The Brady Bunch (1969) episode, was the one where Peter tries to act like an older guy to double date with Greg. Her co-star, Christopher Knight wore a very fake mustache and she thought he did a really great acting job in this episode.
23In 1942, when she was only 8, her family called her "Florency.".

Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!


#Quote
1I begged them [the producers] to give Carol Brady a job. They wouldn't do that. I mean, those clothes, for God's sake, take a look at them! I didn't choose those, please...But I said, 'Can I just hit the kids every now and then? I mean, real life!' They wouldn't let me.
2On her late TV husband, Robert Reed: "He was so close to all six of the Brady kids. When he called and asked me to tell them he wasn't going to live much longer, they were devastated. He was a good friend."
