We almost went an entire month in 2017 without a celebtity death. Sadly, TV legend Mary Tyler Moore died yesterday from cardiac arrest and pneumonia. She was 80 years old, and was with family and friends when she passed.
This moment from Oprah in 1997 has been circulating since the news came out yesterday. A nice one to re-live. Ever thought you could see a star struck Oprah?
Mary was a pioneer for women in Television. Oprah also released this statement after hearing the news.
“Mary Tyler Moore majorly influenced my life and career. I respected and admired her business acumen, her passion, and compassion for all life, and most importantly, the values espoused through her storytelling. I thank her for being a light that shined so brightly, it let me see myself in her.”
