In March, Valerie Harper said she was in the process of saying her lifetime goodbyes –but it sounds like her health is good enough for a least one more great achievement. The Emmy-winning star of The Mary Tyler Moore Show and its spinoff Rhoda who at age 74 is suffering from terminal brain cancer, will compete on season 17 of Dancing with the Stars!!
The actress is apparently paired up with Irish hunk, Tristan MacManus, 31.
She told People Magazine: "Cancer makes real what we try to obscure from ourselves. We spend our lifetimes thinking, 'I'm never going to die.' But cancer says, 'Hey, not so fast.' "
This is going to make for some very emotional moments on the new season. I can't wait to see her win!!!!
