MARY TYLER MOORE: THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES – AND INSPIRATION

We wonder if Mary Tyler Moore realized what a feminist inspiration her character Mary Richards was back in the 70’s. Until then, most females on TV were moms, housewives, teenage girls or passive women hunting for husbands. It was a revelation to see a professional independent thirtysomething single woman NOT obsessed with getting married. She was cute and funny, a good friend, and successfully navigated around the egotistical men in her office. Mary Richards inspired young women everywhere to create their OWN future.(We only wished her character had moved to New York for a better TV job and a Manhattan penthouse.) Of all the acting that Mary Tyler Moore did, she will most be remembered for her own MTM show, which she FINALLY embraced in her later years. Good night, Mary.

    When sitcoms were well written and funny. All downhill since then. She had a very good life, sorry it ended this soon. I sure thought Valerie Harper would go first, she has continued to beat the odds

    RIP Mary Tyler Moore. She ushered in the age of the modern woman and she passed just in time not to see the civil rights of the modern woman (and others) be banished.

We hear she keeps him satisfied by supplying her MALE porn costars for his entertainment. The bad boy pays each guy $5000 per visit so they are highly motivated to make him happy. It’s a family affair – the girlfriend watches while the bad boy fiddles around with the guys!
