NEW YORK (AP) - At last, the truth about Rhoda Morgenstern.
Valerie Harper, the actress who played one of television’s most beloved sidekicks, is working on a memoir called “I Rhoda Book.” (Yes, meaning “I wrote a book”). Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, announced Monday that the memoir is scheduled for January 2013 and would feature Harper’s years on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and as star of the spinoff series “Rhoda.”
According to Gallery, the book will be “filled with charming anecdotes” about Mary Tyler Moore, Betty White and other performers Harper has worked with. In a statement Monday, the 72-year-old Harper said she still gets “called Rhoda so often” that she forgets “who’s who.”
