During the time when The Partridge Family was still airing new episodes, there was a tie-in book published that was called Susan Dey’s Secrets on Boys, Beauty and Popularity. The book might’ve purported to reveal Susan’s secrets, but it didn’t reveal all of them! Two secrets that were casually left out of the book included the fact that Susan was in love with one of her on-screen siblings, as well as the fact that she had begun suffering from anorexia during production. Susan Dey has claimed that there were numerous things that led to her becoming anorexic on the set of The Partridge Family. Thankfully, her eating disorder wasn’t something that plagued her later in life. However, that sadly can’t be said for the other dark secret that Susan kept during the series. Over the course of The Partridge Family’s four seasons, Susan Dey grew to have quite the crush on David Cassidy. Though the crush wasn’t reciprocated, David ended up relenting to his costar’s romantic advances by sleeping with her… but for one night only. Many years later, David would admit in his 1994 memoir that he had never been attracted to Susan. Many believe that this revelation why Susan never talked to David again, not even before his death. Susan Dey retired from the entertainment industry in 2004, though she is still alive and well! Not only did she give David Cassidy the silent treatment until his death, but she also refused to participate in any Partridge Family reunions before her retirement. Thankfully, Susan wasn’t pigeonholed in the role she played on the show. In the 1980s, she got another big role on a series when she was cast on L.A. Law.
