After getting the bad news, the 76-year-old Henderson told co-host Brooke Burke she’s been in television for over 50 years and Dancing with the Stars is “one of the best produced shows” she’s ever done.  The actress praised the crew, makeup people, the costume department, the music and even the judges.  Henderson got a bit choked up when she saved her final thank you for her partner, “this darling man,” Corky Ballas.

Henderson told co-host Tom Bergeron she’s been a fan of the show since the beginning and hopes she has inspired people to “get up off their behinds” and move and dance and enjoy life.  Henderson said she was surprised by the intensity of the work and revealed that she hasn’t had a day off since her run on the show began.  Despite the hard work, Henderson said she felt like a kid again.

After the show, Henderson appeared on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live, where she revealed that the actors and actresses who played her kids on The Brady Bunch all voted for her on the show.

"Oh yes, I taught those kids how to behave, believe me," said Henderson.  "I would've whipped their bottoms if they didn't."
