People Bid(s) Valerie Harper Goodbye

Some members of the Mary Tyler Moore group I belong to on Facebook have been expressing dismay that Valerie Harper only got a refer instead of the cover of People magazine, as Mary had when she died. But after being greeted with a few blank stares by even some Gen Xers at work when I said we should run Valerie’s obituary, I’m just happy she’s out front at all.

Rhoda’s Revenge (1980)

With trainer-cum-husband Tony Cacciotti

Dick Schaal, Valerie's first husband about whom she writes very lovingly in her “I, Rhoda,” memoir, played four different characters on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show”: Howard Arnell, his brother Paul, Chuckles the Clown and Dino; three characters on “The Bob Newhart Show”: Carol’s boyfriend with the bad feet named Don Fezler (aka Dr. Scholl); Don Livingston and Chuck Brock; one on “Rhoda” (as Charlie Burke); before becoming a regular on “Phyllis” season one, as the dimwitted photographer Leo Heatherton. Schaal died in 2014.
