How old is Florence Henderson? This mom of four is old enough to know better! The woman best known as squeaky clean mama Brady seemed to be on a mission to dirty her reputation last night during her “Dancing with the Stars” premiere.
Henderson is 76, and don’t get me wrong, she looks terrific. But just in her short 5-minute segment, we got references from her to spanking, swearing and sex. It felt forced to me, just like the dirty-old-granny act that Cloris Leachman and Betty White have been peddling recently.
Is this what we demand of our grandmothers these days – acting sexy to stay relevant? I say just because you can wear a skirt slit up to THERE doesn’t mean you should. It’s a strange example to set for kids, that just because you’re a certain age you can suddenly act naughty and get away with it.
Still, Florence’s flirting with judge Len Goodman could be the season’s most intriguing storyline – he usually goes for the young ones!
