Florence Henderson On Her Alcoholic and Abusive Father

VIDEO: Henderson discusses her new book with Fr. Edward L. Beck.

One of the privileges of working at ABC News is the opportunity to meet a lot of interesting people.  Some you like, others perhaps not so much.  This one I loved.  Having watched Florence Henderson as Mrs. Carol Brady on THE BRADY Bunch when I was a teenager, she was like the second mother that we all wished we had.  She’s not too different from that in person either.  She’s warm, funny and emotionally available.  So very present in the interview.  We talked about many things, and the interview is cut into a few parts.  In this segment Florence talks about how her faith saw her through a difficult childhood with an alcoholic and abusive father and a mother who abandoned the family.
