Actress Mary Tyler Moore dies at age 80

Quite a run for a performer who started out as a dancer, getting her first national spotlight at 17 as Happy Hotpoint, the dancing elf in commercials for Hotpoint appliances.

In the 1960s, she played the unforgettable Laura Petrie on The Dick Van Dyke Show, another landmark program that broke the mold. It was too radical for Ms. Richards to be divorced when she set off for Minneapolis to answer the theme song's question, "How will you make it on your own?" "I walked her down the hall to [Show producer Sheldon Leonard] and said 'I found her!'" "Love Is All Around" will be anchored by "CBS This Morning's" Gayle King and feature interviews with many of Moore's admirers, including Oprah Winfrey.

The show also tackled issues often considered taboo on television, such as addiction and equal pay for women.

For seven seasons, Moore starred on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show", as Mary Richards, a single working woman who became an inspiration for a generation of young girls that dared to have it all.

She is survived by Levine, her third husband. It wasn't a great script, but I worked diligently and, I'll never forget, just before we shot the episode, Mary came over to me and said, "We feel our investment in you has worked out". "And I loved that about her", Moore explained. It's the funniest moment yet, not only for the rapid emotional switch, for this essentially good person once against doing the exact wrong thing, but because it is entirely true to the vulnerability she has stuffed into this character.

Sanctuary cities represent the best this country has to offer: a spirit of inclusiveness and respect for individual rights. The New York Times reported Trump will sign the order during a visit to the Department of Homeland Security on Wednesday.

"She spent her last months at home with hospice people around, not communicative", Reiner says. Other MTM Enterprises shows included "Hill Street Blues", "The Bob Newhart Show" and "St. Elsewhere". She also appeared in films such as "Six Weeks" and "Flirting with Disaster". They urged the subcommittee to release federal funding for research involving embryonic stem cells, which they said could lead to cures for diseases such as Parkinson's, juvenile diabetes and Alzheimer's.

Moore received a Life Achievement Award from the Screen Actors Guild in 2012. And then she even managed an impressive third act by playing against type, tackling a variety of roles that weren't what you'd remotely describe as sweet.

"But I don't agree with everything you've said. I really didn't believe that". "She wasn't always forthright in her opinions, but she was real". Though we didn't have the term glass ceilings, she in fact came through one, and made it better for a lot of other women in television by showing that she was somebody who was - a woman could pull, pull the audience in a very big way.

The show was noted for being one of the first to focus on a career woman.
