'Brady Bunch' Stars React to Death of TV Mom Florence Henderson

From: NBC News
The former child stars who gave Americans a sugary dose of sitcom escapism on "The Brady Bunch" posted tributes in honor of their beloved TV mom Florence Henderson, who died Thursday night.

Henderson, 82, died of heart failure in her Los Angeles home while surrounded by her family and friends, her manager said.

Between 1969 to 1974, Henderson was known as Carol Brady, the "lovely lady" and lively mother of three daughters who wed a widower and created one big blended family with his three sons.

The actors and actresses who grew up with Henderson as their TV matriarch responded to her death with heartbreak and sadness on social media.

Maureen McCormick, who played eldest daughter Marsha, tweeted:

Eve Plumb, who played middle daughter Jan, tweeted:

Susan Olsen, who played the youngest daughter Cindy, wrote:

Barry Williams, who played the eldest son Greg, tweeted:

Christopher Knight, who played middle son Peter, tweeted:

Michael Lookinland, who played youngest son Bobby, told the New York Daily News on Friday that he was still "shocked and amazed" by Henderson's death.

"She was the kind of person that is just great to be around. Just to be in the same room with her was a pleasure. You can't say that about most people," Lockinland told the newspaper. "She was just 100 percent fun and professional."

Boxer Orlando Cruz: “I Want To Inspire The Gay Community By Becoming A World Champion”

The boxer is hoping to make history with a win in his match this Saturday.
From: NewNowNext
 Orlando Cruz has already made history as the first openly-gay professional boxer, but he’s looking to take things one step further by becoming the first gay World Champion as well.

Cruz will have his chance to claim victory tomorrow  in a match against WBO World Lightweight champion Terry Flanagan.

 Cruz acknowledges Flanagan is a great boxer “who will defend his title with everything he has,” but says there’s an even bigger reason why he admires his opponent.

“He respects my life and my choices,” Cruz told Boxing Scene about Flanagan. “He sees the man boxing him and that is it.”

 The boxer said he was mostly met with support from family and friends when he decided to come out three years ago, but he doesn’t let the anti-gay slurs from less-accepting boxing fans get to him.

“I don’t care if they say, ’Orlando Cruz is gay. Faggot.’ I don’t care,” he told CNN. “I look at my family when I walk in the ring. I look at my mum, sister, I look at my brother. I don’t care, you know, I’m just focused on my family.”

This year he’ll also be able to look out at his husband, Jose, who will reportedly be watching him from the stands, and he hopes that his openness about his sexuality will help to make an impact no matter the outcome of Saturday’s fight.

“When I look at my story, it makes me hopeful that more people will be inspired to come out,” Cruz said. “[But] right now, my focus is fully on the big fight.”

Florence Henderson On Broadway At 79

From: Boy Culture

Amazing that this vital woman was performing like this at 79, and indeed was still making the scene as recently as Monday evening, could die so quickly. When it's our time, it's our time, but man, I wish it hadn't been hers.

Harvey Fierstein, “Hairspray Live!” Cast Bring The Beat To Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade

Jennifer Hudson, Ariana Grande and more belt it out in Baltimore.
From: NewNowNext
 Viewers got the first taste of NBC’s Hairspray Live! yesterday when the cast performed a number during the 90th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Below, Jennifer Hudson, Ariana Grande, Harvey Fierstein, Kristin Chenoweth and others perform the show-stopper “You Can’t Stop the Beat.”

Not only does the number put Fierstein in drag before millions of Americans watching the pre-recorded number at home, there’s a blink-and-you-miss-it homage to Divine in one of the Baltimore store signs.

Right-wingers went nuts when the dragged-out cast of Kinky Boots performed in the parade back in 2013.

We can only imagine what they’re thinking now.

Hairspray Live! airs December 7 at 8/7c on NBC.

Green Party's Jill Stein Raises Millions for Election Recount

From: NBC News
Green Party nominee Jill Stein appeared to have met her initial fundraising goal early Thursday for recounts of the vote in three key swing states that went to Donald Trump — Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

However, she quickly raised the sum being sought by another $2 million. "Raising money to pay for the first round so quickly is a miraculous feat and a tribute to the power of grassroots organizing," a message on her website read.

The Green Party didn't single out any specific evidence of fraud, nor does it need proof of irregularities to call for a recount. Stein's party won only 1 percent of the vote.

"After a divisive and painful presidential race, reported hacks into voter and party databases and individual email accounts are causing many Americans to wonder if our election results are reliable," Stein said Wednesday. "These concerns need to be investigated before the 2016 presidential election is certified. We deserve elections we can trust."

A small but vocal group of scientists and activists has emerged in recent days advocating for a recount on the basis of Trump's unexpected win and concerns about Russian involvement in the election. They note that only a small minority of public polls predicted Trump's success, and although public polls have been wrong before, the magnitude of their error this cycle was unprecedented.

They also point to evidence that Russian hackers infiltrated the Democratic National Committee and potentially a top adviser to Hillary Clinton's campaign as evidence of both ability and willingness. Hackers compromised voter records in Illinois and attempted to breach voting systems in a handful of other states before the election.

Clinton campaign officials haven't commented on Stein's efforts, which hinge on the Green Party's ability to pay for a recount.

Stein told supporters Wednesday that she needed to raise "over $2 million by this Friday, 4 p.m. central," to put her plan to action. The deadline to file for a recount in Wisconsin is Friday, while the deadlines for Pennsylvania and Michigan are next week. Recounts are costly to conduct, and each state requires various fees depending on the size of the vote lead and how expansive the recount is.

She surpassed her website's original $2.5 million goal by 3 a.m. ET Thursday. Within around 20 minutes, the sum had been increased to $4.5 million. And by 7:30 p.m. ET Thursday, that goal was only $200,000 away.

"Now that we have nearly completed funding Wisconsin's recount (which is due on Friday), we can begin to tackle the funding for Michigan's recount (due Monday) and Pennsylvania's recount (due Wednesday)," a message on her site read. "In true grassroots fashion, we're turning to you, the people, and not big-money corporate donors to make this happen."

A recount wouldn't change the outcome for Stein. She came in fourth, behind Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson, Clinton and Trump, taking a little less than 1.4 million votes overall.

But there's a very small chance that a recount in those states could boost Clinton. Trump won Michigan by about 9,500 votes, Wisconsin by 22,500 votes and Pennsylvania by 69,700.

Given the relatively wide margin for Trump and Clinton's narrow advantage in more traditionally blue states like Minnesota, it's unlikely that compromised voting machines were to blame.

Trump aide Kellyanne Conway took a jab at the effort Thursday, tweeting, "Look who 'can't accept the election results.'"

Most political observers agree that the more likely reason for Clinton's loss was an unforeseen breakdown in the Democratic turnout machine in key states, which meant Democrats simply stayed home. There was no evidence of any vote tampering on Election Day, and even flipping one state in Clinton's favor wouldn't give her the Electoral College votes needed to win.

Last week, two experts advocating for a recount, voting-rights lawyer John Bonifaz and J. Alex Halderman, director of the University of Michigan Center for Computer Security and Society, made a phone call to Clinton campaign officials. The voting experts urged the campaign to file for a recount in key states, but their efforts, a person on the call said, were rebuffed.

"While many of us were hoping Clinton's campaign would pursue this, it seems clear they won't, because they said there's no clear proof of fraud" at the ballot box, which candidates typically cite in calling for a recount, that person said.

The source said it was clear that the Clinton advisers were also concerned about not disrupting the transfer of power or causing further unrest over the Trump presidency, which has already sparked protests and marches across the United States in the weeks since Clinton conceded and Trump became president-elect.

But proof of fraud is both "usually unattainable and also unnecessary" in many states to file for a recount, the person on the call said, and at the very least it would allay the concerns of voters who insist that the results of the election don't reflect them.

"There's either a huge subset of hidden voters that didn't tell pollsters how they were going to vote, or something went awry with those voting systems. If we can X out that second option, why not?" the source said.

Florence Henderson, ‘Brady Bunch’ Mom and TV Icon, Dies at 82

From: Variety
 Florence Henderson, the actress who defined the television mom of the modern era with her starring role in “The Brady Bunch,” died Thursday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. She was 82.

Henderson’s manager, Kayla Pressman, said Henderson died on Thanksgiving night surrounded by family and friends. She’d been hospitalized the day before

Henderson seen was on camera as recently as Monday when she attended the taping of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars.” Her one-time TV daughter, Maureen McCormick of “Brady Bunch” fame, was a contestant on the show this season. Henderson herself was a contender on the show in 2010

 Henderson had a busy career on Broadway in the 1950s and ’60s, but it was “The Brady Bunch” that turned her into a household name and face. The ABC sitcom created by the prolific Sherwood Schwartz ran from 1969 to 1974, presenting a G-rated image of an typical American family, albeit a blended one, during a turbulent period for the nation.

Henderson played the genial Carol Brady, the widow (or “lovely lady” in the words of the show’s famous theme song) with three daughters who fell in love with a widower, Mike Brady, with three sons. Henderson’s TV mom was always cheerful, always ready to soothe her children’s problems with sound advice and a warm snack.

Henderson maintained a good sense of humor about the role that set the course for the rest of her career. She never tired of participating in “Brady Bunch” revivals, whether in TV or film, and she traded on her trustworthy Carol Brady persona to become a pitch woman for products ranging from Wesson Oil to Polident denture grip.

Henderson was well-liked by her TV family, and has often been hailed by friends and co-workers as a warm and generous actress with impeccable comedic timing. McCormick and the other five actors who played the “Brady” kids reunited to celebrate Henderson’s 80th birthday in 2014. Robert Reed, the actor who played Henderson’s on-screen husband, died in 1992.

“Brady Bunch” has endured for decades in syndication, ensuring that Henderson remained a bankable TV icon for decades. Henderson kept up a tireless schedule of guest star roles, ranging from “Ally McBeal” to “30 Rock” to “WWE Raw.” Her resume includes visits to virtually every TV game show and talk show of the past 40 years. Long before she was Carol Brady, she notched a TV milestone as the first woman to guest host “The Tonight Show” in 1969.

“Brady Bunch” also spawned “The Brady Bunch Variety Hour” in 1977, the 1981 TV movie “The Brady Girls Get Married” and subsequent “Brady Brides” TV series, followed in 1990 by another attempted revival, “The Bradys.” She played the grandmother of her original Carol Brady character in the 1995 feature “The Brady Bunch Movie,” which starred Shelley Long and Gary Cole.

More recently Henderson fronted two series of her own for Retirement Living TV: “Who’s Cooking with Florence Henderson” and “The Florence Henderson Show” talk show that earned an Emmy nomination in 2010.

A native of Dale, Ind., Henderson was the 10th child in a family of tobacco farmers. She began singing as a toddler. After graduating from high school, Henderson moved to New York to attend the American Academy of Dramatic Arts.

Henderson made her 1952 in the musical “Wish You Were Here.” Her stage credits also include starring in the touring production of “Oklahoma!” where she became lifelong friends with Shirley Jones, “Fanny.” She was also in Noel Coward’s last Broadway play, “The Girl Who Came to Supper.”

Her only major film role came just as she was signing on to star in “Brady Bunch.” In 1970’s “Song of Norway,” she played the wife of Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg.

Henderson recounted her career in the 2011 memoir “Life Is Not a Stage: From Broadway Baby to a Lovely Lady and Beyond.” She detailed the drama that existed behind the scenes on “Brady Bunch” as well as in her personal life during the run of the show, including stories of fighting on the set and dealing with infidelity in her marriage to  theatrical manager Ira Bernstein.

During her decades in the public eye, Henderson was an active philanthropist and prominent supporter of numerous causes including City of Hope and the House Ear Institute. (Henderson herself had to undergo surgery in the 1960s to prevent deafness). She also raised money for the Sisters of St. Benedict monastery in Ferdinand, Indiana, including through appearances as a celebrity contestant on game shows like “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” and “Weakest Link.”

Henderson and Bernstein had four children before divorcing in 1985. She soon married hypnotherapist John Kappas, who died of cancer in 2002.
