Eve Plumb, the actress best known to people who could actually sit through The Brady Bunch as Jan Brady, is in New York to star in Miss Abigail's Guide to Dating, Mating, & Marriage, an audience-participation theater comedy off-Broadway. Plumb previewed the "celebrity advice" portion of the show in which she's featured with some of the tips she'll probably bring up:
"Being yourself is important but keeping in mind manners are important and dating is a process but it should also be a lot of fun. Maybe go back to dating as dating and not necessarily booty calls and hookups online – it is okay to take a little time with your relationships."
On that note, Plumb (in-step with her new alter ego Miss Abigail) also suggested to keep things sweet and simple, at least until a few dates in.
"Wait until the third or fourth date to bring up anything controversial. You want to take time to reveal some of your more personal history. And there are things you should and should not talk about on a date – like don't mention your troll doll collection right off."
"Miss Abigail" will be dishing dating tips and teaching women how to score older men, how to kiss properly (apparently it is all about the lip position) and how to "flex those flirting muscles" with seminars and a blog. [News.com.au via Fox News]
This is the first time we've seen Brady/Plumb in the news since Perez Hilton ran a story about how Brady/Plumb refuses to participate in any Brady Bunch reunions in which she might run into Marcia/Maureen McCormick. Cindy/Susan Olsen explained:
"I don't like there to be a rift in the family. I love them both and this means whenever we get together for any project there will only be one or the other. But I do understand Eve's point of view. She got tired of Maureen gaining attention for herself by regurgitating the tiresome and false insinuations that they had a lesbian affair." [Fox]
