'Marcia Brady' embraces her wild side



It's been more than forty years, and we're still talking about "Marcia, Marcia, Marcia."

Maureen McCormick, who played the oldest sister on the classic TV sitcom "Brady Bunch," is shedding her squeaky clean image and getting into some gross situations on the reality show "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!"

She's no longer in danger of getting hit by a flying football, but now she's in Australia jumping into vats of elephant dung.

According to News.com.au, the 58-year-old was suspected to be a weaker contestant on the popular reality game show, but she's embraced her wild side and has quickly become an unlikely favorite among viewers.

For anyone who is familiar with McCormick's struggles, it's no surprise she's thriving in the wilderness. In her 2008 memoir "Here's The Story: Surviving Marcia Brady and Finding My True Voice," McCormick revealed she was addicted to cocaine when she was just 18 and at one point was even having sex with her dealer in exchange for drugs.

"If there was coke, I had to stay up and do every last flake even if it meant going without sleep for days," she wrote. "Nothing else mattered."

McCormick eventually went to rehab and turned her life around after meeting her husband Michael Cummings, the Daily Mail reports.

Compared to her past struggles, elephant dung is totally conquerable.
