Rhoda Morgenstern on "Rhoda." My favorite tv show in the day...just love you Valerie!
Valerie Harper (b. Aug. 22, 1939) is best known for her role as Rhoda Morgenstern in the 1970s TV series The Mary Tyler Moore Show & its spin-off, Rhoda. In the 1970s/80s, she was involved in the Women's Liberation Movement & an advocate of the Equal Rights Amendment. With Dennis Weaver she co-founded L.I.F.E. in 1983, a charity that fed thousands of needy in L.A. On March 6, 2013 she revealed that doctors have given her as little as three months' life expectancy due to a rare brain cancer.
Mary and Rhoda are together again. The nostalgia ME-TV Network just added the 1974-78 CBS comedy series \"Rhoda\" to its weeknight lineup airing right after \"The Mary Tyler Moore Show,\" the landmark 1970-77 CBS sitcom which introduced Valerie Harper as Mary's bubbly window dresser neighbor. Harper was an overnight sensation as Rhoda, winning three Emmys for her work. The character was so popular, Harper got her own series, which found Rhoda leaving Minneapolis and returning home to New York.
