STUDIO CITY—On Friday, August 3, former NSYNC member Lance Bass took to Twitter to announce he would be buying the home featured in the TV series “The Brady Bunch.”
He tweeted: “Super excited to announce they accepted my offer on the #BradyBunch house last night.” Fans of Bass commented on his post. “…Please make the inside EXACTLY like the Brady house was on air” in which Bass responded, “That’s the plan!”
Bass took to Instagram on August 4 to announce that his plans of buying the house was halted by an outbid by a Hollywood Studio, that is prepared to pay whatever it costs for the home.
He posted a photo of the home with the caption, “Here’s a story… of a shady Brady,” along with a lengthy post on how he felt “used” and was very “heartbroken” about his loss. According to reports, HGTV won the bid to purchase the home.
“One of our projects for HGTV will speak to those ‘Brady Bunch’ fans on the call,” said Discovery CEO David Zaslav during the call about the company’s second-quarter earnings. “You may have heard that the house from the iconic series was recently on the market in California. I’m excited to share that HGTV is the winning bidder and will restore the Brady Bunch home to its 1970s glory as only HGTV can.”
The home hit the market in July. “The Brady Bunch” was about a widower and a divorcee who married to create a blended family. The sitcom aired on ABC in 1969 and ran until 1974. The home is located on 11222 Dilling Street.
