Henderson played beloved matriarch Carol Martin-Brady from 1969 to 1974, but she admits there were many occasions when she wished her homemaker character was a little more like herself.
She says, "I begged them to give Carol Brady a job. They wouldn't do that. I mean, those clothes, for God's sake, take a look at them! I didn't choose those, please!
"But I said, 'Can I just hit the kids every now and then? I mean, real life!' They wouldn't let me.
"I'm the youngest of 10 and I have four children, and every once in a while you get a swat on your behind. I mean, that's the way it goes."
