It seems all anybody is talking about these days is Oprah’s infamous interview with Meghan Markle. But did you know that Brady Bunch actor Christopher Knight also had an unexpected role to play in this interview? Christopher Knight is famous for playing Peter Brady in the beloved sitcom. It seems he surpasses the lovable role and becomes a successful businessman. He found the perfect opportunity to expand his profits during Oprah’s pivotal interview.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle became the Duke and Duchess of Sussex after their marriage in May of 2018. Meghan Markle did her best to fit into the British Royal family. She realizes that no matter what she did, she smears by the press. Finally, the two had had enough, and they seceded from the royal family in 2020. This action meets with great controversy. Oprah Winfrey uses her signature interviewing ability to get Harry and Meghan’s side of the story.
Meghan Markle reveals that, during her pregnancy with Archie, she deals with severe depression, as well as thoughts of suicide. After attempting to open up about her problems, however, the royal family refused her request to seek treatment. To make matters worse, while pregnant with Archie, the royal family discusses that they worry about the baby’s skin color. These incredibly racist remarks only fueled Meghan’s depression. In a country so obsessed with the royal family, she is afraid to say a word against them.
Oprah knows there’s more to the story than the couple will say. She is set on getting to the bottom of it. They had an intimate interview that lasted a total of two hours. Many people are excited to learn all the gossip about the royal family. They’re instead deeply saddened by all that the couple will say. At first glance, the interview was simply an intimate gathering between three people. However, another person played a secret role in the discussion.
In today’s video, we’re going to take a look at what the former Brady Bunch actor Christopher Knight has been up to these days, including some of his past failed marriages. Make sure you stick around, because we’re also going to reveal the unexpected role that he played in Oprah’s famous Meghan Markle interview!
Christopher Knight’s Transition from Star Actor to Business Mogul
Christopher Knight followed in the footsteps of his father, Edward Knight, to pursue acting. At first, his roles were quite small, making minor one-time appearances in various television shows. However, his luck turned around when he landed the role of Peter Brady on the beloved show The Brady Bunch. After the show ended, he made some more minor appearances in films and television shows. Christopher Knight realizes that his talents will be put to better use elsewhere.
In 1988, he realizes that his self-proclaimed “geeky” interests might be better off in the computer industry. He leaves his career as an actor. He discovers that he is a whiz at sales, and was soon promoted to Vice President of Sales. In 1991, however, he decided to found his own company in 3D graphics. Before long, he decided to start a second company of his own and has since become an incredibly savvy businessman in all sorts of industries. While he did an excellent job as an actor on The Brady Bunch, he seems to have fit in far better in the world of sales.
The Role Christopher Knight Played in the Meghan Markle Interview
Oprah Winfrey chose a special location for her interview: a sunny backyard patio. She knew that the content of the interview was quite heavy, and to help the interviewees feel more comfortable, she chose a warm and soothing location. For those more interested in decor than the actual material of the interview, the furniture was immediately eye-catching.
The patio chairs were stylish yet comfortable, with a light grey cushion and stylish wicker and wooden armrests and legs. As the trio sat down in the beautiful backyard, one couldn’t help but notice just how well the furniture fit into the scenery. People all over the country immediately thought about how wonderful that furniture would look in their own backyards. But who was the designer behind these gorgeous patio chairs? None other than Christopher Knight himself! People flocked to online selling locations, and even though the chairs cost $554 a pair, they sold out almost overnight! In a statement on Facebook, Christopher Knight announces that he was honored his chairs made an appearance in such an iconic interview.
Christopher Knight’s First Two Failed Marriages
Believe it or not, Christopher Knight marries a total of four times throughout his life! It’s not uncommon for Hollywood stars to have turbulent romantic lives, but it seems like Christopher has bitten off a bit more than he can chew in the past. He married his first wife, Julie Schulman, in 1989. The two had been dating for only a year before they married, but their union only lasted three years. In 1992, the supposedly happy couple put an end to things for good. While we don’t know why the two eventually divorced, Christopher’s pattern of failed marriages leads one to assume that he may just be the culprit.
In 1994, Christopher thought he had found love again. He met a gorgeous woman named Toni Erickson, and the two began dating. Just like with Julie Schulman, Christopher married Toni just a year later. In 2000, after five years of marriage, the two separated.
While these marriages may not have made headlines, Christopher Knight made his relationship with his third wife far more public. Make sure you stick around until the very end, however, because we’re going to reveal how Christopher Knight finally found a love that would last.

He Still Stays Close with His Former Co-Stars
In March of 2021, Christopher Knight shared a heartwarming photo of himself and several former members of The Brady Bunch cast all hanging out and eating lunch together. Susan Olsen, Maureen McCormik, and Barry Williams, who all played Cindy, Marcia, and Greg, respectively, on the show, were all present. Even though they’re all grown up now, it’s nice to see that they’ve still remained friends after all this time. Even though Christopher Knight has mostly stepped out of his career as an actor, and all of his fellow co-stars have gone their separate ways, there are some bonds that you just can’t break!
While the get-together was still missing a couple of people, it’s obvious that those years filming for The Brady Bunch formed a tight bond, no matter the time or distance that has passed between them.
Christopher Knight’s Third Disastrous Marriage
In 2006, Christopher Knight married Adrianne Curry, who became famous for winning the first season of the hit show America’s Next Top Model. While his previous wives aren’t famous to the public, everyone knew Adrianne Curry’s name, and the whole world shocks to discover that she is settling down with the former Brady Bunch star.
However, the two had a rather messy marriage. After meeting on the reality TV show Surreal Life, it becomes clear to many that the couple’s marriage plague is afflicted by drama. The two appeared on an episode of Dr. Phil, where they complained about their marital problems. Dr. Phil immediately noticed their constant bickering. He also mentioned that Christopher Knight was prone to making rather hurtful comments toward his wife. Dr. Phil summarizes his lecture by stating that, if the two didn’t learn to reconcile their differences, they end up getting divorced. He was right. In 2013, the two split up.
Finally Settling Down
Even though Christopher Knight’s third marriage fills with drama, he finally managed to settle down with another woman. Like Christopher Knight, Cara Kokenes is a savvy businesswoman who has worked for Arrow Electronics and IBM. The two bonded over their love of entrepreneurship and electronics, and married in November of 2016. While they haven’t been married all that long, the two seem to have a strong connection. But will it last?
Christopher Knight has a long history of messy marriages and disastrous divorces. Will this marriage be any different? We can only hope so! At the very least, his career seems to be going rather well, especially after his furniture designs sold out following the Meghan Markle interview. Even though Christopher Knight was well loved for his role in The Brady Bunch, it’s clear that where his heart truly lies is in business.
While Oprah Winfrey’s intimate interview with Harry and Meghan Markle chiefly involved those three people, Christopher Knight’s furniture made a popular cameo.
