Here's a story, about a boy named Lance Bass—okay, so the song could use some work, but the former NSYNC singer confirmed that after losing out in the bidding war for the Brady Bunch house, he's still going to be involved with it.
"The fans went to my rescue. I got totally hosed out of this deal, so they convinced HGTV to let me at least produce the show," Lance told . "We have no idea what the show is, but at least I get to put my hands in it."
Though Lance didn't have any details on the show, might. According to the website, Lando Entertainment sent a letter and a box of snickerdoodles and chocolate chip cookies to the houses surrounding the famous home, which mentions that the company will be chronicling the renovation of the house's interior, so it matches the classic show. (As famous as the house is, only the exterior was shown on TV. All of the interior shots were filmed on a soundstage.)

ICYMI: The iconic Brady Bunch house hit the market in mid-July for $1.885 million by . The Studio City, California home — which was used for exterior shots in the show — received eight offers, reports the , one of them from Lance Bass.
The NSYNC singer took to on August 3 to announce that he had purchased the house, and that his offer was accepted. He even teased plans for the property, responding with "that's the plan!" after someone requested that he make the inside identical to how the Brady house looked in the show.
Just one day later, Lance posted to to tell followers he was feeling heartbroken. "As many of you may have heard, we placed the winning bid on the iconic Brady Bunch house — at least that’s what we were told," he wrote. Bass explained the situation, saying, "The agent representing the estate informed us we made the winning bid (which was WAY over the asking price) after the final deadline for all offers had passed—even writing up the 'winning bid' for my team after informing me of the good news. Isn’t a deadline a deadline?"
According to Bass, the same agent informed him that there was a corporate buyer who wanted the home at any cost. "We were prepared to go even higher but totally discouraged by the sellers agent, they will outperform any bid with unlimited resources," he wrote. Bass said that he feels used and saddened by the "highly questionable" outcome. "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," he said in the Instagram post.
The potential buyer who outbid Bass hasn't been identified yet, but the Los Angeles Times reports that the sale is expected to close in about ten days.
