Brady Bunch Star Ann B. Davis Has Died

Ann B. Davis, who played Alice Nelson on The Brady Bunch, died today at the age of 88. CNN reports that she suffered a brain injury after falling and hitting her head. Along with her role as Alice, the Bradys' lovable, wise-cracking family housekeeper, Davis also won two Emmys for her portrayal of secretary Charmaine "Schultzy" Schultz on The Bob Cummings Show. While Davis mostly left show business in the late '70s to live a quiet religious life, she continued to do some commercials and stage work, and also had a cameo as a trucker in the 1995 Brady Bunch Movie. "I'm shocked and saddened! I've lost a wonderful friend and colleague," said Florence Henderson, who played Carol Brady, in a statement Sunday.
