Mr. X Blind Item #2

Which A+ list mostly television actress who's a legend in the medium thanks to two shows which are constantly in reruns might not live to see the rest of the year? She's currently in a coma at an NYC hospital and her family is preparing for the worst.

Flora Goforth said...

MTM

NATHANIEL MANELLA said...

Looks last me she's NOT gonna make it after all..

Nutty_Flavor said...

Yeah, Betty is still turning out new episodes of 'Hot in Cleveland' on a regular basis, although they seem to have her sitting down in the majority of scenes these days. MTM has been ill for awhile.

OhNoooo!!!!

LottaColada said...

@FSP good guess!

ItsCourtneyD said...

I just saw Betty white on Conan the other night so def not her. If so, she went downhill quick. I'm guessing Mary or Valerie. Most likely Mary.

Mary Tyler Moore

Valerie Harper?

Eros said...

Wouldn't it say former A+ if it was MTM?

auntliddy said...

Holy moly, thats too too sad!

msgirl said...

Mary doesn't need a rating, it's understood by the word legend. Crap I grew up on her shows, as a young kid watching the MTM show I thought 30 was ancient. The clown funeral is classic.

Essie said...

How can an A+ actress be in a hospital and it's not known by the New York media? EVERYTHING that happens in NY is known by at least the Post or Daily News.

Gossip-Monster said...

MTM is forever A+ list and, no, she is not doing well

Poor Mary

trudi said...

MTM has diabetes and has been doing poorly for the last few years.

sandybrook said...

It is either MTM with varied diseases or Valerie Harper with the recurrence of her cancer.

Simon said...

Mary Tyler Moore has struggled with diabetes most of her life. Dick van dyke said he never sees her but talks to her and she is not at all well. Has to be her.

meme deemed said...

Mary Tyler Moore

Read last week, they don't expect her to survive past another 3 months.

ItsCourtneyD said...

Oh the clown funeral episode is gold. I've never seen anything that beats that episode. I loved that show!

Freya said...

@ Essie The same way Angelina Jolie had surgery and no one told the media.

BlondeB said...

MTM will ALWAYS A+++, she is a legend and an icon, there is no former about it.
Hope it's not her, The Mary Tyler Moore show let me know as a female there were other options available other than wife and mother. Little did I know how my life would take a parallel journey to her characters journey.

Chris J said...

That's my thought as well.

Steven O said...

"Broadway Barks", a charity MTM founded along with Bernadette Peters, was held this past Saturday night. And Moore, who always appears, was "unable to make it this year".

sugarbread maker said...

Mtm.

teresa crane said...

I gasped when I saw Betty White as the answer

I think she's doing ok (thank god)

Sadly this is MTM

What is it about type 1 diabetes that ravages them? I thought if you control your blood sugar and eat the right foods then you can keep it under control.

Moxie Girl said...

@Nathaniel Manella hahaha.

Paint Chips said...

It's MTM.

Betty's not going anywhere anytime soon, she made a deal with the devil.

Dena said...

Yo no hablo.

Penelope said...

MTM, and this makes me so sad.

Jacq said...

I think it's Valerie. She had the MTM Show and Rhoda. :( that gives me the sads

Scallywag said...

@barleye, Type 1 is very different from Type 2. Type 1's produce no insulin at all. Treatment and diet help tremendously and with MTM she went decades in relatively good health and managing complications, it will eventually catch up with you in nerve damage, heart disease, osteoporosis, and many more complications.

I think it's her, too. There were reports of MTM's eyesight being all but gone earlier this year. At 78 it's quite possible other complications have set in as well.

Zoe Cialite said...

Yup, it's MTM and she's forever A+.

auntliddy said...

Riven- i think she's very debilatated by diabetes-i know shes practically blind, which accounts for falling- and i think theres an element of alzheimers going on there. She gets pretty nasty. Hubby, like alot if us family members, is at wits end with her. And no matter what he dies for her, everyone is gonna be all look what he's doing ti out mtm!!!!! He's in a no win dealio. Im guessing the husband wufe relationship has gone by the wayside, no conversations or compatability. Whatever happens, hope she passes peacefully.

Number12 said...

I haven't seen Rhoda in reruns in years, so Mary seems more likely.

I think it's Mary Tyler Moore. I just heard not to long ago that Valerie Harper was doing better.

Carol Burnett?

Tyger Lilly said...

@Nathaniel - thank you for that. Just thank you.

PookieTwo said...

Agree with other posters here that this would have leaked to the NY tabs by now if true. Then again Enty/s has magical medical sources that surpass anything the Post, Daily News or other hardcore NY paper could drum up.

Or TMZ would've posted it by now, they have sources at the major medical centers on both coasts that feed them info.

kelliknows said...

I've gone through a lot of medical problems, and when I'm most upset I watch mtm show dvds and I forget pain, worries..so calming. Wish there were a way I could thank her.

Aoife said...

Sadly I agree this is MTM. I read somewhere earlier this year that she was starting to have mental issues. :(

SeƱior Seamhead said...

I don't care if it's Betty, Val or MTM. It just gives me the sads.

Snootches said...

Enty forgot " This will be revealed"!

Prunella Buggerweeds said...

I thought MTM got divorced. Or was that Victoria Principal?

Anyway MTM has had diabetes forever. Eventually it takes its toll. I did read a few months ago that she's not doing well at all.

Pity, she was America's sweetheart. Never a breath of scandal or bad press either. Nobody had a bad word to say about her.

gail from Long Island said...

Sadly, it is MTM, who is in a NYC hospital. She lives in CT.

drewh1979 said...

damn MTM sads

Clark Elliot said...

Sadly this is Mary Tyler Moore. Diabetes has really beaten the hell out of her. Sads....

Unknown said...

Could it be Elaine Stritch? She just died today :/
