Show Biz Buzz: Is Valerie Harper Coming Back To TV?


Talk about going out in a blaze of glory! Actress Valerie Harper is returning to television. This time, she will be the subject of a documentary chronicling her battle with rare, terminal brain cancer. reports former “Today” co-anchor Meredith Vieira will be host of the hour-long program produced by NBC News to air on the network in prime time. There is no date yet for the broadcast. In early March, Miss Harper learned that a recurrence of her 2009 lung cancer spread the disease to the membrane surrounding her brain. Since then, she has allowed camera crews access to doctors’ visits, surgeries, reunions with friends and more to help share her story. NBC says it is a raw, emotional and hopeful journey as the lady we loved as ‘Rhoda’ on TV in the 1970’s goes through experimental treatments and lives each day to the fullest with her husband Tony Cacciotti and their daughter Christina. A week after announcing her condition, Harper said she was “trying to live every moment as much as I can. I can’t say it’s terminal. I’m saying it’s incurable so far, but we’re all terminal. No one is getting out of this alive. The key is, don’t go to the funeral until the day of the funeral.” That’s brave advice, and so true.
