The Brady Bunch may be coming back to TV. Well, the house from The Brady Bunch might be, anyway. This isn’t some kind of reboot, that’s already been done. But HGTV announced on Tuesday that they’ve purchased the home from the classic TV show, and Lance Bass is “heartbroken” over it.
According to Yahoo, the home improvement simulator that airs non-stop in your parent’s living room is buying the home and plans to restore it to “it’s 1970s glory” according to David Zaslay, the CEO of Discovery. Zaslay announced the acquisition at an earnings conference call on Tuesday, answering the question many had earlier in the week: who stole the house out from under former NSYNC member Lance Bass?
Bass tweeted about his failed quest to purchase the house late Sunday, saying he was “heartbroken” that an anonymous company was willing to pay any price to get its hands on the most famous establishing shot of a mid-century split level home on the planet.
“How is this fair or legal?? How can I compete with a billion dollar corporate entity?” Bass asked. “I truly believe I was used to drive up the price of the home knowing very well that this corporation intended on making their offer ad it’s not a good feeling.”
Bass said he felt “used” but mostly was “hurt and saddened” by the series of events. But after the news was announced by HGTV on Tuesday, Bass seemed to change his tune.
HGTV will almost certainly film the renovation process and make some sweet, sweet programming out of it, which is pretty exciting if you like wood paneling.
