Rating: NNNNN

Were Captain Hogan and Colonel Klink’s secretary really doing it? You betcha. Bob Crane and Sigrid Valdis were a major item that blossomed into a long-standing marriage that weathered Crane’s bizarre sexual predilections. Turns out TV co-stars — from the most unlikely series — have been getting it on all over the place, sometimes with serious consequences.

Genius kids’ show host Paul Reubens, aka Pee-wee Herman, was busted in a Sarasota porn theatre for indecent exposure. Herman’s Pee-wee’s Playhouse took the hit — CBS cancelled the five-year-old show. Exposing a little peewee had a big impact on his career.


Rock Hudson’s onscreen kiss with Linda Evans caused a ludicrous panic when it was revealed that Hudson had AIDS at the time.


The Price Is Right host Bob Barker found out the cost of casual talk when two employees filed wrongful dismissal charges against him in the fall of 2001. The two complainants said they’d been treated in a “lecherous manner” and were wrongfully dismissed when they supported former employee Holly Holstrom in her legal suit against Barker. Decisions in all suits are still pending.


Who knew the Brady Bunch were so randy? Peter (Christopher Knight) and Jan (Eve Plumb) put an incestuous twist on things when they started sharing bunk beds. Then Cindy (Susan Olsen) and Bobby (Mike Lookinland) got caught in Tiger’s doghouse. Marsha and Greg (Maureen McCormick and Barry Williams) also couldn’t keep their hands off each other. To say nothing of the sad case of Robert Reed, who never came out of the closet and died from AIDS-related illness in 1992.
