Susan Olsen, who played Cindy on the Brady Bunch, did a brief radio interview, cut short by her hangover. She rushed out at the end, gagging, covering her mouth and saying she was about to throw up.
Olsen fessed up that she had drank too much Wednesday night, but between retches she urged listeners to come see her show Thursday night at Loonee’s Comedy Corner on North Academy Boulevard in Colorado Springs, where she opened for headliner Chris “Crazy Legs” Fonseca.
Olsen blamed Fonseca for her condition.
“Chris got me so wasted last night, and I’m so ready to vomit on the microphone,” she said. She urged fans to come to Loonee’s to watch her and Fonseca “fight with each other.”
Olsen ended the brief interview by telling deejay Darren McKee, “I’m going to go throw up now.”
Of course, her manager said that it wasn’t that Susan had too much to drink, but it was because of Colorado’s high altitude that she couldn’t handle her alcohol intake. He also defended her saying it wasn’t ‘like she was shooting heroin in the studio or something.’
Admittedly, she wasn’t indulging in illegal drugs while doing an interview to promote her comedy show, but she was hungover with her 12-year-old son in the room. Her son didn’t seem to bothered by the incident, telling listeners to come along to her show and ‘watch her drink like a pig tonight’.
Susan was once rumored to have a career in the adult film industry, but all it amounted to was that she had helped a friend with the soundtrack for their adult film. After Brady Bunch finished and she graduated from high school, Susan worked as a graphic designer for ten years. Her last acting experience was in the Brady Bunch Movie. She has also worked as a radio host and is raising her son who has asperger’s syndrome.
Here’s a video of her radio appearance. Around 2:00 minutes in she starts gagging and covering her mouth, and rushes out of the studio saying she’s about to throw up.
