Ann B. Davis of ‘Brady Bunch’ Dead at 88

Ann B. Davis of Brady Bunch fame, she played Alice the housekeeper, died on Sunday. Close friend Bishop William Frey said Davis fell and hit her head in the bathroom Saturday morning. She suffered a subdural hematoma and never regained consciousness. Davis once said of her character on the show:

“I made up a background story. I did have a twin sister, so I used that as a basis. … I cared very much about this family. It was my family. It was close to my family as Alice would ever get. I would have died for any single one of them at any point,” she said. “You know, they wrote me such gorgeous things to do, as the intermediary between the kids and the adults, and between the boys and the girls. And they gave me funny things to do.”

The Brady Bunch is one of those timeless shows that never gets old. That’s an amazing legacy to leave behind. Meanwhile, the only legacy I’ll leave behind is a bunch of dick jokes.
