After being passed over for a more serious role in the movie Midnight Express, starring Brad Davis, she landed a role in Take Down in 1979—but by that time, she was frequenting the cocaine dens of Hollywood, becoming addicted to drugs and pills. She once admitted to dating actor Steve Martin while she was "fried" out of her brain. The two had only one date. During the production of The Brady Brides, McCormick's agent found her in her closet,
high on cocaine, after missing three days of production.
"I was so addicted to cocaine, it nearly destroyed me," McCormick said in an interview with Access Hollywood. "It became my everything."
McCormick married actor Michael Cummings on March 16, 1985. Their daughter, Natalie Michelle, was born on May 19, 1989. McCormick released her only CD, When You Get a Little Lonely, a collection of country songs, in 1995.
After marrying Cummings, McCormick confronted her depression and addictions head on. She had several stints in rehab and dabbled in experimental therapy, which proved successful. She and her family settled in Westlake, California.
McCormick returned to TV in 2007 for VH1's Celebrity Fit Club, losing weight and ultimately winning the onscreen contest. This experience led her to make the connection between her weight gain and depression, and she publicly addressed her mental health and drug issues.
