For several generations of TV viewers, Brady Bunch star Florence Henderson was the ideal suburban mom, never saying anything that wasn’t cheery and uplifting to her brood of six TV children. Well, it wasn’t the Carol Brady we all know and love who startled reported at a Television Critics Association event in L.A. today when she ripped into TV son Christopher Knight‘s reality show marriage.

While promoting her upcoming Hallmark Channel movie Ladies of the House, Florence made it pretty clear that Christopher’s foray into reality TV, which includes stints on The Surreal Life and two seasons of My Fair Brady, which saw the actor tie the knot to fellow reality star alum, America’s Next Top Model champ Adrianne Curry, didn’t exactly do wonders for his personal life.

While Florence admitted that she offered her advice to Chris and Adrianne before their 2006 marriage, she then sighed, adding, "Maybe [now] I’ll come and counsel the divorce."
