Read from November 24 to December 01, 2011 , read count: 1

Many of us equate Florence Henderson with Carol Brady...the mother of a blended family from the Brady Bunch....but did you know she has also done other television, Broadway productions, and even has sung? All that and more....

Her autobiography is a decent read....it seems she puts more emphasis on the beginning of her life and how she got into show business eventually getting the roles in different plays and untimately getting role of the matriarch of the Brady clan...but there is so much more. Her latter life is touched on but without the detail you find from the first half of her life.

For those that love the Brady Bunch...meet the real lady behind Carol Brady...Mrs. Wessonality, Florence Henderson!
