Maureen McCormick

Maureen McCormick who played Marcia Brady on The Brady Bunch writes about her troubled years in her new memoir, Here’s the Story: Surviving Marcia Brady and Finding My True Voice. E! gives some details.

In addition to discussing an unusual string of relationships with Steve Martin, Michael Jackson and her TV bro Barry Williams, the actress and sometime country singer also reveals that she once traded sex for drugs and engaged in full-on binges at the Playboy Mansion and at the home of Sammy Davis Jr.

When the show ended, McCormick says she turned to drugs, taking cocaine and Quaaludes among other illicit substances, a habit which failed to help her secure additional employment.

For those of you thinking Hollywood was way different back then than it is now, think again. You still have teen actors addicted to blow and trading sex for more blow. And why wouldn’t they? They have such hard lives that they need to drown their sorrows in drugs. Those whiny kids in Ethiopia can learn a thing or two from young Hollywood. If they even get a glimpse of what life is like for them, they’d consider themselves lucky that the only problems they have to deal with is whether to have mud pie or mud soup for their one meal a day.
