Actress Florence Henderson says she
can't understand parents who disown their gay kids.
The 80-year-old Henderson, who is best
known for playing Carol Brady on The Brady Bunch, recently
told GregInHollywood.com's Greg Hernandez that a modern version of
the Bradys would address LGBT issues.
“At the time that we actually did the
show, they wouldn't have addressed that,” she
“But if the show were on today, I
think it would definitely be addressed. After all, their father was
gay,” Henderson added, a reference to the late Robert Reed, who
played Mike Brady on the show.
Henderson added that many of her gay
friends confided in her that they were disowned.
“And all of them, they all knew they
were gay from the time they were 5 or 6 years old. The kids that
have no place to go and the parents don't get it, don't understand
and stop loving them. How can you do that to a child?”
“Who are we to judge anyone,” she
added. “It always came natural for me to love people.”
