MSNBC Host Reports Death Of Wrong 'Brady Bunch' Actress

Posted: Updated:

MSNBC honored the late "Brady Bunch" star Ann B. Davis on Monday with a picture of the wrong actress.

While talking about the beloved Davis (Alice in "The Brady Bunch") who died on Sunday at age 88, “Jansing and Co.” accidentally aired a picture of Henriette Mantel. Mantel played Alice in "The Brady Bunch Movie" in 1995, a film made nearly 25 years after the sitcom's original debut.

Host Chris Jansing apologized for the mixup after a commercial break, re-airing the photo using the correct picture of Davis.

"And there’s the Ann B. Davis we know and love,” she said. “Our apologies, because we showed a picture of the woman who played Alice in 'The Brady Bunch Movie.'"
