"Gosh, we were so close," she said. "We used to fly to Texas and we would hang out and go out to dinner and we really spent a lot of time together — you know years after the show, and just admire her."

At the time of Davis' demise, McCormick said in a statement that the late actress made her a better individual, Fox News reported.

"How blessed I am to have had her in my life. She will be forever missed," she said.

McCormick struggled mostly in her personal life in the years after "The Brady Bunch" ended.

In her 2008 autobiography, "Here's the Story," the actress reportedly says her life turned into the perfect opposite of her character. She wrote:

"I had played Marcia Brady for five years. But I wasn't her in any way, shape or form. She was perfect. I was anything but that."

McCormick then revealed in her book how she got deeper and deeper into Hollywood's drug scene. She wrote:

"I sought refuge in seemingly glamorous cocaine dens above Hollywood. I thought I would find answers there, while in reality I was simply running farther from myself.

"From there, I spiralled downward on a path of self-destruction that cost me my career and very nearly my life."

McCormick added that she battled drug addiction and bulimia throughout the years.

"I was treated in a psych ward, went in and out of rehab, and looked to God for answers," she shared.

McCormick continued that she traded sex for drugs with a Hollywood cocaine dealer. There was also a time that in exchange for drugs, she permitted an older man to videotape her naked.

"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."

In 1985, McCormick got married to Michael Cummings. The two fell in love upon meeting in a church.
