Actor Barry Williams recently suggested
“going transgender” to promote his upcoming reality show.
The 60-year-old Williams is best know
for playing Greg Brady for five seasons on the ABC series The
In A Very Barry Branson,
Williams trades in Hollywood for Branson, Missouri, where he performs
his 70s Music Celebration! musical variety show.
During a HuffPost
Live appearance to plug the upcoming Great American Country
original series, Williams attempted to deflect rumors about his own
personal life by making a joke about Bruce Jenner.
“I want to find out if Bruce Jenner's
gonna become a woman or not,” Williams stammered.
“I think you're going to find out
pretty soon,” host Ricky Camilleri replied. “That's the kind of
gossip you're interested in.”
“That guy is committed. He is
committed to promoting himself. And I'm thinking, maybe, I don't
know, I could say, I'm just saying, If this thing doesn't work, and
the series isn't doing as well as I want, I'm going transgender.”
“I think it's a much more emotional
process than people like to give credit for,” Camilleri said.
“I'm an actor,” Williams replied
with a shrug. “I can handle it.”
