Long before the Kardashians were TV's most popular family, "The Brady Bunch" ruled. Now, the matriarch of that family, Florence Henderson, is speaking out about Kim and her family.

"They disturb me," Florence told me on the set of "New York Live." "What credentials do they have? They haven't paid their dues, but they certainly know how to make money."

Promoting her new book "Life Is Not a Stage," the 77-year-old star told me that the biography is packed with stories about her upbringing, her failed first marriage and affairs -- including a one-night stand with New York City Mayor John Lindsay that resulted in a case of crabs.

"I believe in Karma but didn't think it would be instant Karma," Florence joked about the embarrassing sexually transmitted infection.

Florence also admitted that she left some stories out of the book.

"I hope I didn't hurt anyone," Florence said.

And what does Florence think about Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries' sudden split? "I couldn't care less about the Kardashians," Mrs. Brady tells me.
