1. “Ann B. Davis R.I.P.” The actress, best known for playing Alice on The Brady Bunch, dies at 88.
“Actress Ann B. Davis, an American television legend who held The Brady Bunch together in her role as housekeeper Alice Nelson, died Sunday. She was 88. Bishop William Frey, a close friend of Davis, told CNN the actress died at a hospital in San Antonio, Texas, where she was treated after hitting her head in a fall. The actress suffered a subdural hematoma, he said, and never regained consciousness. Appearing in her trademark light blue maid’s uniform with a white apron, Alice anchored The Brady Bunch with her cheerful attitude and witty one-liners. As the sitcom’s famous theme song played, showing each member of the Brady family’s face in a grid, the devoted housekeeper was always smiling in the center.”
