Florence Henderson - Henderson Had Affair With New York Mayor

Actress 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 American 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 apologise.
Lindsay, who served as mayor from 1966-1973, passed away in 2000.

TMI! Does she think we wanted to know this piece of disgusting information.Why speak of this, when the man is dead and can't defend himself. How wrong and unladylike. She must be trying to sell her new book; is getting senile, close to being broke, or a combination of the three. Everyone knows, a true lady never talks about her escapades or in her case sex-capades, whether its in the past, or present. 'Mrs. Brady', shame on you. How about this man's family and hers? Wow! You know, I always thought Florence Henderson was flaky and I was correct!
