Valerie Harper to join 'Mary Tyler Moore' reunion on 'Hot In Cleveland'

Betty White's "Hot In Cleveland" is giving "Mary Tyler Moore" fans a special opportunity to see the cast together once again.

TV Land announced Friday that their original series will host Mary Tyler Moore, Cloris Leachman and Valerie Harper on an upcoming episode. The news that the actresses are going to get together on TV again is likely particularly poignant in light of Harper's recent cancer diagnosis.

"In the episode, Elka (White) and Mamie Sue (Georgia Engel) decide to get their bowling team back together, aptly named GLOB: the Gorgeous Ladies of Bowling," the TV Land announcement says. "The team, which includes Elka, Mamie Sue, Diane (Moore), Peg (Leachman) and Angie (Harper), had a falling out decades ago after their championship season went to their heads."

Although Moore's previously guest starred on "Hot In Cleveland," having appeared in a season two episode, the upcoming reunion will be the first one in more than 30 years for the former castmates.

The summer season of "Hot In Cleveland" returns to TV Land on June 19 at 10 p.m. ET.

    A flash from the past. It will be a rude awakening of the aging process. Can't avoid it. We either get old or we die young.....must of us get old....really old and looking it, no matter what. Ha....

      Brain cancer sucks. My heart goes to her. I would make sure I get a good DNR, meaning enforced on all levels. Nothing is worst than having a feeding tube but questionable consciousness.

    I hope they can get Ed Asner to show up too...and I'm sure hoping Valerie proves the Drs. wrong and can be around to watch it when it is on TV!

    I say bring back Ed Asner and Betty White too. And hurry up, cause a couple are going to kickoff soon. We all know Ted is gone, but how about Georgette, and the bald lead writer guy?

      Georgette (Georgia Engel) is already on Hot In Cleveland 🙂 She is playing "Mamie Sue". She and "Elsa" are amazing, funny ladies!

      Betty White is unreal. She is so cool and her new show " off their rockers"...hilarious. She has been really blessed with a great sense of humor and good health. She is not your basic glamour puss but she has substance.

    lets all just do what the program intends: sit back and enjoy....good cast, good memories, nice 'easy chair' stuff. no "wife swap" or "Gypsy sisters".... just good stuff that most of us grew up with!

    I remember her on Valerie's Family before it was Hogan's family with Sandy Duncan. I kinda remember my mom watching Mary Tyler Moore, but only things I remember were when she was at work. I'm sure she was funny though for her to be around for so long

    This is such a nice idea. I think I'll actually watch that one. So, when is the episode going to air? I just think that Valerie Harper is handling her diagnosis with so much courage. I really do admire her for that.

    I was told by a whack job doctor that I had only 3 months to live.. whoops, his mistake~!! 🙁

    I know what she is feeling.. At least I did for a couple days..
    So sorry that she had to hear such news.. No one should ever have to hear their life is limited to months ... So hard..

      They never like to give anyone a clue about " the time" because no one really knows. These are guesses and usually patients are pushing to hear they may finish their projects and get "ready". Of course, there are always the "miracles" one can foresee. At the end, we all die and that is a fact but putting a time on it complicates everything. You would think it helps but it does not really.

    TJ has the best idea. Betty White could have a dream that she was once on a cooking show with the MTM gang. To bad all the Golden Girls are gone except for White, that would be a good show too. I loved Betty White as Sue Ann Niven, just as I loved Betty as Rose on the Golden Girls. What a talented woman.

      @gahh – don't forget she was good on some episodes of the "Family" skits from The Carol Burnett Show as Eunice's sister Ellen. Betty White is truly a talented lady!!

  22. Pahlease!

    We haven't seen this woman in years. Now she is everywhere to 'say goodbye.' If you have months to live spend them with loved ones, not glamming it up for the camera.

    • Really

      If you only have a few months to live, do whatever you want!! If your family truly loves you they will support you.

    I can just imagine in the episode that Ed Asner plays the bowling shoe rental guy behind the counter who tells the ladies, "You got spunk. And I hate spunk!!!!!"

    They should do an episode where one of the women dreams of the Mary Tyler Moore show and Betty White, Mary Tyler Moore, Valerie Harper and Cloris Leachman reprise their roles. Get Ed Asner and Gavin McCloud on there too!
