Tell-all celebrities

By Tom Quiner

Florence Henderson of Brady Bunch fame has published her memoirs.

She reveals that she had a one-night stand with a New York politician who gave her a sexually-transmitted disease.

Do we really need to know this?

Ms. Henderson defends her decision to “tell-all” this way:

“I love to read memoirs but I know when they’re not being really honest and I thought if I’m going to write this I’m going to write about  myself as a human being who has had to overcome an awful lot in my life and had to face a lot of challenges, make a lot of mistakes, make some bad choices but I’ve managed to keep growing and evolving to live a very full life filled with friends, four children that I adore, five grandchildren and a career that I dearly love. So I just want people to know that they can make mistakes, have a hard childhood, but you don’t have to be a victim of all of it.”

Who is she trying to kid? She’s not being honest, she’s being undignified. She’s showing no class, and I suspect that Ms. Henderson is indeed a classy lady.

To me, the lesson from celebrities is that a little discretion can go a long ways.

    I wonder if she’s suffering from dementia. She should have just gone to confession. It would have been better for her.

    My guess would be that she bought a big House recently and the Balloon payment is coming due……that is how Hollyweird Rolls…..

    I would say that young people could take a lesson from this, but most of them think “ew, that’s gross. The Brady Bunch Mom!” That is if they even know who this older lady is.
