Looks like Lance Bass isn’t going to be able to live out his “Brady Bunch” fantasy after all.

The pop singer is “heartbroken” after learning that he was outbid on the 2,500-square-foot home in Studio City used to film the exterior of the popular television sitcom, the Los Angeles Times reported. It hit the market last month for $1.85 million.

On Aug. 3, Bass excitedly wrote on Twitter that the sellers had accepted his offer. That ended up being a misunderstanding, and the winning bid actually went to a Hollywood studio. The sale is expected to close in the next 10 days.

The next day, Bass tweeted: “How is this fair or legal?? How can I compete with a billion dollar corporate entity? I truly believe I was used to drive up the price of the home knowing very well that this corporation intended on making their offer and it’s not a good feeling.”

Ernie Carswell at Douglas Elliman has the listing. Bass’s offer, he told the LAT, was never a done deal. A spokesperson for Douglas Elliman said the seller chose the “highest, most qualified buyer.”

Located in Studio City, the Traditional-style home includes two bedrooms and three bathrooms.

The house was used for the exteriors of the Brady household during all of its original run from 1969 to 1974. Bass tweeted he was planning on renovating the home’s interior to match the Brady’s family home, which was actually shot inside a studio.

Violet and George McCallister bought the home in 1973 for $61,000, roughly equivalent to around $361,000 in 2018 dollars. [LAT] — Natalie Hoberman
