Christine Baranski went to Marcia Brady's Slumber Party !

....and she brought her old nose! mamma mia! What a youtube find !

She went by the name of Chris Charney and had guest appearances in several TV series, including COMBAT and FLIPPER in the 60s. This selection comes from THE BRADY BUNCH, Season 2, Episode 3: "The Slumber Caper" (originally aired on October 9, 1970). Christine played Paula; was not yet 18 and she still sported her original nose.

Baranski would later do Broadway and her Patsy Stone / "Lumley Lite" routine on the sitcom "Cybill" and in the mega hit Meryl Streep musical MAMMA MIA!

Dear Christ, she was young once!? I always thought of her as one of those women that was born as a stodgy adult. Like your mom's friend from the local Lioness Club that drinks red wine in the daytime.

She was awesome even back then! And she's currently in "The Good Wife".

Does anybody have a clip of when she did Flipper? I've been forever looking for it!

Despite what Roger from "American Dad" said, (Google it) Christine did NOT SIT ON HER BALLS! Believe me, she sat on something much more precious in that slumber party... something beyond the clutches of any of the Brady males! She sat on...PARADISE!!
