The past couple of weeks have been an emotional roller coaster for singer and *NSYNC alum Lance Bass. The 39-year-old announced Friday that he had made a winning bid on the iconic house used in the 1970s TV series Brady Bunch -- but things didn't have a perfect, family-sitcom ending.

"Super excited to announce they accepted by offer on the #BradyBunch house last night!!!" the singer posted Friday on Twitter. Many were wondering what would become of the famous North Hollywood house, which went up for sale in July. Maureen McCormick, who played Marcia Brady, even congratulated Lance, joking, "may all your problems from here on out always be solved in a half hour!"

Things took a turn in the days after Bass' tweet. After Lance announced the news, he says his offer was thrown out for a higher bid. A bummed-out Bass posted an emotional post on Instagram reading, "Here's the tale of a shady Brady."

"I'm feeling heartbroken today," Bass wrote. "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. 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? This was a dream come true for me and I spent the night celebrating amongst friends, family, and fans alike." 

However due to "unforseen circumstances," Bass claims that "the same agent informed us that there’s another Corporate Buyer (Hollywood studio) who wants the house 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. How is this fair or legal?? How can I compete with a billion dollar corporate entity?"

Bass finished the post by saying that he "feels used" and says that he is hopeful that the house is not demolished by the new corporate ownership.

Marcia Marcia Marcia! Im feeling heartbroken today. 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. 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? This was a dream come true for me and I spent the night celebrating amongst friends, family, and fans alike. The next day, due to “unforeseen circumstances” the same agent informed us that there’s another Corporate Buyer (Hollywood studio) who wants the house 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. 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. I feel used but most importantly I’m hurt and saddened by this highly questionable outcome. I just hope it is not demolished. Thanks for all the love and support. #CrushedDream #ShadyAF #DouglasElliman #ShadyBrady To make me happier you can register and vote November 6th!
