Maureen McCormick has a sex tape. The now 52-year-old actress, who is best known for her role as Marcia Brady on the primetime series, "The Brady Bunch", is afraid that her long-ago indiscretion with a coke dealer at the Playboy Mansion will finally be released to the public. Only two years after playing the angelic Marcia Brady, she became addicted to drugs and went into a downward spiral that she discloses in detail in her book, "Here's the Story." As she describes her struggle,
I was battling depression, went through a really hard time in my marriage, and I used to cry myself to sleep. I went through years and years of pain and suffering, and finally got help. I feel so much better now, feel like a new person, so now I can be happy about it.
At her lowest point, Maureen McCormick undressed on a bed while being videotaped by an older man in exchange for drugs. Her troubles would also prop up during auditions; one memorable instance occurred while she tried out for "Raiders of the Lost Ark" after being awake on drugs for several days. Steven Spielberg apparently offered her an orange, but did not offer her a part.
Now, Maureen McCormick is the mother of a 19-year-old daughter and lives in the suburbs of Los Angeles. She even has a relatively active acting career. On "Celebrity Fit Club", a weight loss show, she won the challenge in season 5, losing 34 pounds. Her latest role was on Country Music Television's reality TV show, "Outsider's Inn", which follows her business misadventures as she attempts to open a Bed & Breakfast in Tennessee.
