The 60s sitcom The Brady Branch has managed to stand the test of time and is still widely watched on millions of TV sets around the globe. While the plots and characters might have appeared largely angelic, there were pretty dark secrets being held on set. Here’s a look:


30. Mr. Brady’s Big Secret


Robert Reed, who played Mike Brady, was a closeted homosexual. His co-star Florence Henderson caught on to his secret pretty early on when she noticed how uncomfortable he was with acting romantically towards her. After admitting the truth to her privately, the two rehearsed kissing and hugging scenes off-camera to look more natural. The entire cast and crew kept Reed’s secret until after his death from HIV in 1992.
