Share Your Valerie Harper Memories Here

We were saddened to learn of the passing of Valerie Harper yesterday at the age of 80 following a heroic battle with cancer. Best known for her performance as the smart and sassy Rhoda Morgenstern on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and its spin-off Rhoda, Harper charmed audiences with her work on stage and screens large and small since the late 1950s. As we remember Harper and the impressive entertainment legacy that she leaves behind, we encourage you to share your memories of this comedic great in the comments below!

    I only vaguely remember Rhoda. Mostly for “Carlton your doorman”. What I really remember is the series she was in in the late 80’s Valerie.

    Watching the Mary Tyler Moore show, I could never understand how Rhoda was supposed to be this frump. Seemed pretty sexy to me

      She looked better in Hot in Cleveland than she ever did in the 70s.
