She's Rhoda. She will always and forever be Rhoda. Her gravestone will say Rhoda.
Ok, that will probably say Valerie Harper, but to millions of Americans she is and will remain Rhoda Morgenstern, BFF to Mary Tyler Moore's Mary Richards on the "Mary Tyler Moore Show" and star of the eponymous spinoff "Rhoda."
Plenty of stars would take pains to point out that they've done other work! Valerie Harper has, but she clearly understands what the iconic role meant to her career and her fans.
Harper joins the show to talk about her new memoir "I, Rhoda."
