Help me remember a TV comedy show from the 1970's...

Hi Metafilter, I am trying to remember a north american TV show from around 1977-1980, scant details inside...

From what I remember (IIRC):

-the setup was that there was a group of attractive women, I can't recall if they were cheerleaders, or a beauty pagent, or a dance team...

-the main characters were a less-attractive dark-haired woman who was their manager or something, and her son who was in his early teens. (& were they on a cruise ship? IDK)

-one of the attractive women was blonde and named 'Bambi' (on one episode the boy is getting a gift and he gets confused, he thinks his gift is her. "Just what I always wanted! Bambi!" he says as he runs to embrace her).

My google-fu is coming up short, and my hazy memories aren't coming through, and it really bugs me :/

Any ideas?
thanks!

Blansky's Beauties?

Flying High only meets your first criterion (they are sexy flight attendants), but it's from exactly that time period and is extremely weird.

Blansky's Beauties! Yes! that has to be it! thanks (and my memories were that the teenage kid was like Scott Baio, I guess it really was him!)

You gave excellent clues! "Less-attractive dark-haired woman" + (c) 1977 = Nancy Walker and no one else.
