Battle Of The TV Moms


Shirley Jones’s new memoir just landed on my desk. I flipped through it and laughed out loud when I saw this picture taunting her rival for TV’s best mom. I hope the legends don’t have to take it outside and settle this feud like Danny Bonaduce and Barry Williams did a few years back. Jones won her Oscar for Elmer Gantry in 1960, and Florence Henderson was nominated for a CableACE award in 1994. What? Really? No other awards for Carol Brady? Outrage! Well, they both have stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and they both have high-priced DVD box sets (only one is covered in green shag carpet). Point goes to Mrs. Brady on that one. Can’t wait to see what old time showbiz lore made it’s way into this new tome.
