Valerie Harper, TV's Sassy Rhoda Dies

Valerie Harper, who scored guffaws, stole hearts and busted TV taboos as the brash, self-deprecating Rhoda Morgenstern on back-to-back hit sitcoms in the 1970s, has died. Harper was a breakout star on 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show,' then the lead of her own series, 'Rhoda.' In recent years, Harper's other appearances included "American Dad!" ''The Simpsons" and "Two Broke Girls."
