    Actress Valerie Harper (Rhoda) has 3 months to live !!



    Actress Valerie Harper Has Brain Cancer

    By JACKIE WILLIS

    March 06, 2013

    The Mary Tyler Moore Show star Valerie Harper revealed that she has been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer.

    The 73-year-old actress, who played Rhoda Morgenstern on Mary Tyler Moore Show and its spin-off, revealed to People magazine that she learnt of the news earlier this year, Jan. 15, after a number of tests revealed she has leptomeningeal carcinomatosis. According to People, this is "a rare condition that occurs when cancer cells spread into the fluid-filled membrane surrounding the brain."

    Her doctor has given her three months to live. This is Harper's second bout with cancer, who also battled it in 2009. "I don't think of dying," she said of the diagnosis. "I think of being here now."

    People magazine reported on its website Wednesday that the 73-year-old actress received the news on Jan. 15.

    Tests revealed she has leptomeningeal carcinomatosis, a rare condition that occurs when cancer cells spread into the fluid-filled membrane surrounding the brain. The report says Harper's doctors have said she has as little as three months to live.

    "I don't think of dying," Harper told the magazine in a cover interview. "I think of being here now."

    Harper's character, Rhoda, was one of television's most beloved characters during the 1970s, and the tart-tongued, self-deprecating Rhoda made Harper a star. She won three consecutive Emmys (1971-73) as supporting actress on Mary plus another for outstanding lead actress for Rhoda, which ran from 1974-78.
    Dancer on Broadway

    Harper began show business as a dancer in several Broadway musicals, and worked in summer stock and with the Second City improv group.

    "I was a dancer but I was always a little overweight," she once told The Associated Press. "I'd say, 'Hello, I'm Valerie Harper and I'm overweight.' I'd say it quickly before they could. ... I always got called chubby, my nose was too wide, my hair was too kinky."

    Accordingly, she played Rhoda at first as a plump, wisecracking contrast to slender, winsome Mary Richards. But as The Mary Tyler Moore Show evolved, Rhoda trimmed down and her own brand of beauty was acknowledged.

    The character was wildly popular and soon inspired her own CBS sitcom, which saw Rhoda moving back home to New York City and even getting married.

    After her success on TV, Harper returned to theatre. Several TV movie and feature films followed, including Chapter Two and Blame It on Rio.

    In 2000, she reunited with Moore in a TV film, Mary and Rhoda.

    "Rhoda Morgenstern gave a wonderful impetus and propulsion to my career," she told the AP in 2001.

    At the time, she had stepped into the role originated by former Alice star Linda Lavin in the Broadway comedy The Tale of the Allergist's Wife.

    Harper played what she described as "an angst-ridden Woman of a Certain Age," and she likened that character to Rhoda, whose shared creed, she said, is "Get into life, and enjoy it. Just stop with the white knuckles and relax. Be OK with yourself."

    In recent years, Harper had guest roles on several TV series, and in 2010 was back on Broadway playing Tallulah Bankhead, a flamboyant star from Hollywood's Golden Age.

    AP Drama Critic Michael Kuchwara wrote that "Harper submerges the iconic Rhoda Morgenstern" and "has a ferocious sense of comic timing."

    In January, Harper published a new memoir, I, Rhoda.

    Really sad to hear this.... loved Valerie as Rhoda and she's indeed a great comic actress. Also a passionate supporter of equal rights. It's a shame she has so little time left but appears she's making the most of it. Thoughts and prayers go out to Valerie and her family.

    This is very sad. I always enjoyed watching Valerie.

    To be told you have 3 month (when that in and in itself is just a guesstimate) is horrible.
    I may be bad, but I'm perfectly good at it.

    .
    Recently, Ms. Harper has made a few appearances on my radio - very pleasant. I fondly remember an episode of the MTM show where Rhoda opens up a flower shop and names it "Rhoda's Dendron." Funny lady. She will be missed.

    I don't care about a 73 year old with cancer that I've never known personally.
