The Harper family is dealing with the recent diagnosis by preparing to replace Harper, following her death, with Sandy Duncan.

i knew marrying eddie van halen would mess her up in the long run.
 
2013-03-06 09:25:01 AM  
Her husband announced to the family that she will be replaced by Sandy Duncan.
 
2013-03-06 09:36:21 AM  
So she's not gonna make it after all?

/that was bad and I feel bad.
 
2013-03-06 09:40:06 AM  
Is it too obscure to make a Sandy Duncan joke here?
 
2013-03-06 09:44:39 AM  
Valerie, why don't you put that down. If you don't get off of this eatin' jag, they're gonna take you home in a body bag..
 
2013-03-06 09:49:27 AM  
Isn't anyone going to make a Sandy Duncan joke?
 
2013-03-06 09:50:44 AM  
Damn. It's right about this juncture I'd be considering my options for checking out, before it gets really bad.

I feel bad for her, and her familiy.   Brain tumors are terrifying enough without the "we can't do anything for you" coming right after.

There.  I said it.
 
2013-03-06 09:59:27 AM  
Never really liked her, but damn, that's too bad.
Hope she passes with little or no pain.

F*ck cancer.

True Story:
A friend and myself were out one night at a really nice restaurant in Los Angels. Next to us, sitting at a table was Sandy Duncan. This was back in the late 80s and Miss Duncan is looking very pretty and I can't stop staring at her. Suddenly, Sandy sneezes and her glass eye flies out across the table. I reach out and catch it. I politely walk over and hand her the eye back. Finding myself caught up in the moment, I tell her that I love her as an actress and would really like to spend the evening with her. Well, after we finish eating, she invites me back to her place and I sleep over. In the morning she makes me this really nice breakfast. the I say to her "Do you make breakfast for all the guys you meet?" and without missing a beat, she replies "No, you just happened to catch my eye."

Wow, that's amazing, the same thing happened to me with Jack Elam.

It was an adhesive used by actors in the 70s and 80s to help them hold onto TV shows they're on a little better.

Uh, Sandy Duncan does not have a glass eye. She had to have a benign tumor removed from her left eye and subsequently lost sight in it, but it's not glass.

Also...what does she have to do with Valarie Harper?

Lt. Cheese Weasel: It's right about this juncture I'd be considering my options for checking out, before it gets really bad.


My wife's great aunt died from brain cancer a few years ago. Aside from getting weaker it wasn't too bad for her. She was able to do most of her life activities and wasn't in any real pain until near the end. One morning she woke up and could only speak gibberish. She went into the hospital, slipped into a coma within a day and that was it.

/her husband of 62 years followed her about 6 months later

She replaced Valerie Harper in a 1980s sitcom named Valarie, the change was more abrupt than Bewitched.

Here's a sitcom I'd like to see: The Adventures of Tyrion Lannister and Titus Pullo.

I still remember the I famous 'condom' episode that most stations refused to show in prime time.
 
2013-03-06 01:18:10 PM  
I always thought it'd be a car accident. :\
 
2013-03-06 01:19:50 PM  
Loved her as Rhoda, especially in that spinoff show.  Especially when she married Joe.  Of course, that didn't work out.

Thanks for everything, ma'am.
 
2013-03-06 01:49:14 PM  
Oh man she is too young to die. She was just getting her life back in order losing, weight and getting a new show on TV.
 
2013-03-06 02:00:59 PM  
Very sad to hear this.
I guess there will be no Rhoda recovery for her.

So funny.  So wrong.

Very sad indeed. I've always been a major Rhoda-rooter.
