Ann B. Davis did NOT make the lez-lez

... according to Sherwood Schwartz.

[quote]Schwartz said that Davis never married. And while he knew her, she never had a relationship either, which, for the decade, was odd. So her choice to remain single caused rumors to spread. The producer revealed that he spoke with Davis about her personal life on one occasion, and the actress illuded that a bad relationship made her swear off men for good. And in turn, she never had the chance to start a family of her own.

[quote]“She was never married and everybody suspected that she was gay. [Ann] and I actually talked about it and she said, ‘No, I have lots of issues, but that’s not one of them,’” Lloyd continued. “She told me she once had a relationship, I think with a married guy or something, and it ended badly. I don’t know that she ever had anything else after that. But that’s almost apocryphal.”

Mmm. Ann B. was deeply religious. I suspect she was stuck in the closet somewhere back in Narnia. Poor Alice!

We've been to this rodeo before. She was a pretty obvious lesbian. her religion was a backward form of Episcopalianism. She basically was part of a cult under a guy named William Frey.

Maybe she was a devout Lesbyterian?

by Anonymousreply 2November 23, 2021 4:14 AM

She was a dedicated Episcopalian volunteer and lived in the household of the bishop in Denver (Bishop Frey), and moved with them when they left Denver for Pennsylvania, and then went with them to San Antonio. She was still living with the Freys at the time she fell and died shortly afterwards. She was very healthy so the injury death was shocking.

There never was any public information about her sexuality, but if sublimation had a face....

by Anonymousreply 3November 23, 2021 4:21 AM

Frey was a retrograde cleric who organized a "commune". She wasn't a volunteer, she was a cult member. And Episcopalianism seems like a non fun way to do it, unless he was modern enough to stock good gin.

Toward the end of her life Ann was taken in by a group to help her with problems she was having. Someone asked them (thinly veiled) if they accepted same-sex people to help and the head man said "Yes."

She was a lesbian ahead of the times and probably had issues with 'coming out' back in the day. I believe she was gay.

Even if Ann was gay, some of you actually think there aren't both gay and straight people who have given up on relationships? This is definitely a reality for a lot of people.

I know people, gay and straight, who, after bad emotional and physically abusive relationships, have chosen to stop dating. Some had fuck buddies on and off while others have simply chosen not to bother with any kind of relationship.

One person, a gay man, who was a former fashion model, he never had problems meeting men, is now in his late 50s. He hasn't been a relationship for many years. He fills his time running his small business, takes care of his pets, has many hobbies and many friends. Lots of people don't feel the need to be in a romantic partnership.

Don't "Sure Jan" me either. I know these people personally. I don't find their choices weird. People can spend years looking for their soul mate, sometimes they never find them, others have settled, they're mostly miserable.

R44 Ann actually did the 700 Club back in the 90s after Robert Reed had died from AIDS.

According to that Brady Bunch E! True Hollywood special (that aired in the late 90s where it revealed that Reed & Davis had some heated words over his script concerns), her appearance on there seemed like a big F U to recently deceased Reed.

I'm surprised the there wasn't any controversy from the media, Hollywood or the LGBT community over that. Robertson tore into gays, AIDS & Reed so it seemed like Ann was lending her name to his far right causes.

Even as a preteen baby gay with virtually no real knowledge of lesbianism, I thought Alice was likely much more into Mrs. Brady rather than Sam the Butcher. I also that knew Nancy Kulp, Edith Head, my piano teacher and my uber-dyke swimming instructor were "ladies who liked ladies."

Allan Melvin (Sam the Butcher) must’ve been super rich. He appeared on virtually every sitcom as either recurring character or a guest star.

I used to know someone whose father was a character actor. They lived in a mansion in Beverly Hills. I never heard of his father and didn’t recognize him as anyone familiar when I saw him on a Perry Mason rerun. But being a character actor was good money.

Character actors were often wealthier than stars of tv shows. They kept working for years while the stars got cancelled when their shows did.

Allan Melvin had to be one of the steadiest workers in television.

From what I see in this thread. Ann was either asexual or a lesbian. Bible thumping either way would nix the concept of any exploration of her sexuality.

Robert Reed was such a DILF before the atrocious perm. I think he had naturally curly hair (which he rocked in later years) too so it seemed unnecessary.

Another thing is women on average have a smaller sex drive than men. It's easier for a woman to focus on other things than sex. Also dildos exist.

She may have been accepting of her sexuality, doubtful...I think it sucks that if you are a celebrity there’s an expectation that people I have a right to know about your private life. That would really suck If I were an actor I would do my best to keep my personal life separate from my career and in interviews out focus on that... It’s a celebrities that are dying for attention that serve their life up on a platter to the public, famewhore style.

Its interesting that people claim to be outraged by Will Smith speaking publicly about his sex life and the same people talk shit about Ann B Davis for not speaking publicly about her sex life.

FYI gays: In R112's pic, Allen Melvin and Don Knotts are standing in front of Aunt Pittypat's house, on the old Back Forty lot. Sadly, her porch had been removed, not sure about the lawn jockey.

If you watch The Brady Bunch, you can see Carol's pussy juice on Alice's upper lip in several episodes.

Spinster Women without families would often become nuns late in life, so they had someone to take care of them in their old age.

I highly doubt Carol would have scissored with Alice (since she was getting to ride Mike's 10" hog every night), but it was the 70s and time of sexual freedoms so......

R124- I could EASILY picture Ann B. Davis as a nun if she weren't Protestant.

Florence seems chill and accepting. Her TV husband was gay and her TV housekeeper was lez. Didn't seem to judge either way.

It was actually Mike who was doing all the 10" hog riding.

So that's what he was up to at the office. "Drawing up blueprints" was code for 'legs up in the sling'.

The episode where Alice taught Carol how to use a vibrator was my favorite.

She couldn't have been that mad after a while. The Brady Bunch was still recognizable prior to her death. The Partridge Family fell into obscurity much quicker.

Why did Alice always have to wear a maid's outfit? It was humiliating.

R160 The whole show was written for kids. Like they had to remind the young audience, Alice was the housekeeper all the time and they barely showed she had a life outside the Bradys besides the appearance of her boyfriend Sam once in a while.

Um, maybe because she was the... maid

" Alice was the housekeeper all the time and they barely showed she had a life outside the Bradys"

Tell me about it...

Remember when they took her to Hawaii and Carol made Alice clean the hotel rooms and make the beds.

I worked with Flo Henderson's daughter Barbara. She's maybe the loveliest person I ever met, inside and out. If she's any indication, Florence was a very cool person.

I know this thread is about Ann B. and not Florence, but I wanted to add how much I admired Florence Henderson. As others mentioned, she had a difficult early life. She talks about her mother in this short clip with Rosie O’Donnell.

Florence was beautiful inside and out. And a great actress and singer. She truly loved Robert and Ann for who they were. It's nice to know that the Brady clan in real life is like a real family. Even though Robert and Eve felt the show a waste of their talent, they were still willing to do all the reunions and I don't think it was just for money.
