Florence Henderson Had An Affair With Former NYC Mayor & Got Crabs
Florence Henderson has revealed she once cheated on her husband and had an affair with a former New York City mayor.
Henderson, who portrayed beloved Carol Brady on the popular hit TV sitcom "The Brady Bunch," admits she once had a one-night-stand with married politician John Lindsay in her new memoir, "Life is Not a Stage."
She writes, "I was lonely. I knew it wasn't the right thing to do. So, what did I do? I did it."
But the actress claims the encounter wasn't exactly perfect - she awoke the next morning to find she had contracted a sexually-transmitted disease, pubic lice.
She adds, "Guess I learned the hard way that crabs do not discriminate, but cross over all socio-economic strata... He must have had quite the active life. What a way to put the kibosh on a relationship."
Lindsay felt so guilty about the incident he sent flowers to the star to apologize.
Lindsay, who served as mayor from 1966-1973, passed away in 2000.
