HGTV Is Going to Save the Original Brady Bunch House


"One of our projects for HGTV will speak to those Brady Bunch fans on the call", Zaslav said. The seller of the home, listed for $1.885 million, selected the ultimate prevailing bid and a backup.

HGTV's parent company Discovery confirmed to ABC News on Tuesday that CEO David Zaslav announced the purchase as part of the network's second quarter earnings.

Two days ago, Lance Bass of NSYNC fame tweeted that "The Brady Bunch" house, which was put on the market last month for the first time in almost half a century (see the Zillow listing here), had been snatched out from under him.

"As many of you may have heard, we placed the winning bid on the iconic Brady Bunch house - at least that's what we were told", he wrote.

Among the people to make an offer was *NSYNC member Lance Bass, who announced last week that he had made the winning bid. The company claims it intends to return it to its "1970s glory."Lance Bass has someone who is squarely siding with him in the mess over the sale of the "Brady Bunch" house. that someone is his real estate broker, who says his client was shamelessly defrauded". "We were prepared to go even higher but totally discouraged by the sellers agent, they will outperform any bid with unlimited resources".

A disgruntled Bass further expressed his frustrations in the post, thinking he had been used, adding: "How is this fair or legal??" Bass said. "How can I compete with a billion dollar corporate entity? I feel used but most importantly I'm hurt and saddened by this highly questionable outcome". "Thanks for all the love and support".

It sounds like the sitcom home is in good hands.

"Congratulations", she tweeted. "May all your problems from here on out always be solved in a half hour!"

Another losing bidder was Gregory Storm, a Hollywood screenwriter and director, who replied to the same Bass tweet that Scott did.

The singer replied promising McCormick would be the first dinner guest.

Violet and George McCallister bought the two-bedroom, three-bathroom house in 1973 for $61,000, records show. The McCallisters are both deceased and their children are selling the home.

The network, which specialises in home improvement and gardening shows, will "restore the home to its 1970s glory", Discovery said.
