>> One of the most iconic homes in TV history, finally has a new owner. But not without some drama. The Brady Bunch house, located at 11222 Dilling Street in Studio City, California, the exteriors of which were used for the 1970s sitcom, recently went up for auction. Former NSYNC star, Lance Bass thought he had won it, writing on Instagram that he was told by the real estate agent he had placed the winning bid.
Only to be told the next day, that the house would be going to a corporate buyer willing to top any price. The buyer turned out to be Discovery Networks, run by David Zaslav, one of the highest paid CEOs in America, and home to Oprah's network OWN and HDTV.
Zaslav on Tuesday announced, on the company's second quarter earnings call, that HGTV will restore the Brady Bunch home to its 1970s glory. That's little consolation for Bass, who believes he was used to drive up the price of the home. Zaslav did not specify what Discovery paid for the house, but joked that the company would move its chief financial officer into the attic if Discovery did not meet its financial goals.
