The ladies of the Mary Tyler Moore Show are back together on a sitcom stage. Mary Tyler Moore, Valerie Harper, and Cloris Leachman will join their former costars Betty White and George Engel in an episode of Hot In Cleveland. For Harper, the guest stint follows her recent announcement that she has terminal brain cancer.
In the episode, which tapes April 5, Elka (White) and Mamie Sue (Engel) decide to get their bowling team, named GLOB (The Gorgeous Ladies of Bowling) back together. They reunite with former team members Diane (Moore), Peg (Leachman), and Angie (Harper). The quintet had a falling out after their championship season went to their heads.
This is believed to be the first time the five former castmates will act in front of a camera since taping the MTM finale in 1977.
