Just saw her on the Betty White 90th Birthday Special this week and there's clearly something wrong. All the other presenters were shown walking to and from the microphone during their tributes, but MTM gave two presentations and, both times, she was already standing at the microphone when her name was announced. She also looked as though she didn't know what to do with her hands. One of the tabloids has her on the cover this week, in a wheelchair, with a headline about her "brave last days." I don't know about that, considering she's still acting, but it does sadly sound like she's having a few health problems.

I'm actually surprised that doctors would allow a diabetic to have a lot of plastic surgery. Comedian Totie Fields insisted on having a facelift, despite doctors advising against it due to diabetes, and she ended up losing a leg because of blood clots. And she didn't live more than a couple years after that.

Just my 2 cents...but...I was backstage at an event she did maybe 5 (?) years ago.
I believe it IS the diabetes wreaking havoc. No one has mentioned it but I think the gal is nearly blind. I think she just sees vague shapes and images. She had people helping her around the entire time, and when it was time to go onstage they helped her up to the stage and she walked to the podium by herself. There was a prompter in front of her with large font and she still had trouble reading it. And remember this was years ago.
Obviously she'd had some bad plastic surgery as well, but the worse part was how dependent she's become. Even needing help to step over small bumps on the floor (like cables that are covered by those yellow plastic cable covers). Even the small covers were like going up a ramp for her and they had to help her over it. I mean she's an old "pro" so she tried not to "let on" while onstage. It's certainly the reason we never see her on television anymore (bad facelift or not)
It must be worse by now and I'm sure her assistants walked her to and from the recent television podium before and after the cameras turned to her. All "keeping up appearances".
I didn't get much more insight into her personality. She was pleasant enough during the "downtime" but it was just sad to see her like that. EVERYthing is geared towards dealing with her health issues.
Diabetes can do awful things to people.
I can't even blame her if she's a cranky old lady now (though I don't know if that's the case). I think I would be to!

It wasn't that many years that Mary's youthful appearance had to be worked around by scriptwriters.

R46. Yes, Valerie Harper and Betty White appeared together on The Mary Tyler Moore Show." They were together when Sue Ann Nivens (Betty) cooked dinner at Mary's apartment in the "Veal Prince Orlof" episode.
Valerie Harper (Rhoda) brought Henry Winkler as her date to Mary's dinner party (it was Winkler's first ever television appearance), even thoough Rhoda wasn't suppoed to bring a guest, so Henry had to sit at the kiddie table away from the formal dining table. Winkler's only line from the kiddie table was, "Could you pass the salt."
Sue Ann Nivens was about to serve the Veal Prince Orlof even though the congresswoman guest of honor hadn't arrived yet. Because if you don't serve Veal Prince Orlof when he's ready to be eaten, as Sue Ann says, "He dies." When dinner was finally served, Mr. Grant took half of the entire serving of the veal until Mary had to pull him aside and ask him quietly to put back half of the veal back so the other guests had something to eat.
It was a hilarious episode of MTM. One of the best.

You're right, R59. That episode was definitely one of the best!
I think Rhoda might also have been at Mary's party where Sue Ann was introduced and ran off with Lars.
And, Rhoda definitely confronted Sue Ann directly in the episode about a Sunday TV magazine program, co-hosted by Ted and Sue Ann and produced by Mary (with Rhoda's assistance, because it was her idea).
That was another memorable episode. "Mary, I've been a producer for a very, very long time and [taunting] I know something you don't know."

From the NYT today...
GREENWICH, Conn. â In her office at her home here Mary Tyler Moore has one case that holds her Emmy statuettes (she has won seven) and Golden Globe awards (three). A second case has, among other honors, her Peopleâs Choice awards (four). Sheâll have another piece of hardware after this weekend. She will receive the Screen Actors Guildâs lifetime achievement award on Sunday during that organizationâs annual ceremony in Los Angeles, which will be broadcast at 8 p.m. on TNT and TBS.

Fred R. Conrad/The New York Times Mary Tyler Moore will receive the Screen Actors Guild's lifetime achievement award on Sunday. When asked if there was a souvenir from her long career that she was particularly proud of, she pointed not to the trophy cases, but to the wall.
âI think the M,â she said. It was the large letter familiar from the apartment of Mary Richards, her character on âThe Mary Tyler Moore Show,â the popular and pivotal 1970s series.
Ms. Moore had agreed to watch an episode of the show with me to see what memories it stirred, an apt exercise in a television season notable for new female-centered sitcoms and stars like Zooey Deschanel (âNew Girlâ) who have cited the earlier show as a touchstone.
The M is goldish in color but apparently not solid gold. âWe did a retrospective, and they wondered whether or not they could have the M,â Ms. Moore recalled. âAnd I said, âSure.â I couldnât imagine what could go wrong.â
What could go wrong, it turned out, was the exchange between a prop handler and a truck driver. âThey dropped it, and it shattered into about four different pieces,â Ms. Moore said. âThis is the original, glued back together.â
The M was given a shout-out in one of Ms. Mooreâs most recent television appearances, a funny cameo last year on her friend Betty Whiteâs sitcom, âHot in Cleveland.â Ms. Whiteâs character has landed in jail, and her cellmate turns out to be Ms. Moore. âWhatâs with the big Mâ on the wall over her bunk, Ms. White asks. And jailbird Mary replies, âStands for murder.â
That M was merely painted; Ms. Moore admitted sheâll be reluctant to let the original leave the safety of her office again. Its fragility seemed fitting somehow, earlier in my visit Ms. Moore, who is 75, had talked about her own fragility, a consequence of Type 1 diabetes.
âIâve been a diabetic for about 35 years now, and Iâm one of the very lucky few who has managed to live that long without having major problems,â she said. But, she added, âI do have problems with my eyes, one eye in particular, and if I fall, I generally break a bone.â
About the falling: Itâs made a bit more likely by the presence here of four dogs. With her vision problems, she tends to trip over them. But theyâre not going anywhere; animals have been right up there with diabetes on the list of Ms. Mooreâs causes. (She and Bernadette Peters organize Broadway Barks, the annual pet-adoption event in Shubert Alley.) One dog in particular, a friendly, face-licking pit bull named Spanky, is earning his keep. âHe has, as with some dogs that have been written about, the ability to sense when things are off in their owners, their masters, whatever weâre calling them in this day and age,â she said. âHe can tell when my blood sugar is dipping low.â
Ms. Moore also had a run-in with a brain tumor last year, but one that she says was exaggerated in some quarters.
âAny time you mention the brain, it terrifies people,â she said. âThere were those who delighted in spreading the rumor that I have brain disease, or some other really gripping, nonpleasant situation. But I was very fortunate.â What she had, she said, was a meningioma, a small tumor on the lining of the brain, removed without incident.

We also talked about a side of her career â her film work â that few people think of because of her tremendous television success, first with âThe Dick Van Dyke Showâ and then with her own series.
One film she is particularly proud of that might not spring immediately to mind, she said, is âMiss Lettie and Me,â a 2002 television movie about a bitter spinster surprised by a visit from a young relative. âThat really gave me a lot of joy and a sense of juiciness in that when she comes on the screen sheâs a woman in her 80s,â she said of her character. âAnd with the help of a rather inspired makeup artist, we were able to pull that off.â
The film that stands out, of course, is âOrdinary People,â the Oscar-winning 1980 drama directed by Robert Redford. Ms. Moore said that Mr. Redford had reservations about casting her as the icy mother Beth Jarrett because she was so thoroughly identified with her comic TV roles. But, she said, he had also wondered âwhat the dark side of Mary Tyler Moore was, and could she pull this off.â
âAnd I did all but jump up and down and scream: âYes, I can. I know this woman. I grew up with her.â â
âI was thinking of my own family history and how we missed the mark of being everything that Iâm sure people thought I was,â she continued. âBecause I had, though nothing that would raise your eyebrows. I had problems with my father, in that he expected more from me than I was able to give. I did not do well in school, and that was a big disappointment to him.â
But, she said, her father, George Tyler Moore, who died in 2006, eventually got over that.
âWe did our shows, both the Van Dyke show and mine, in front of audiences, and he and my mother would come to every show,â she said. âAnd I could recognize my fatherâs laugh.â Enlarge This Image

CBS Dick Van Dyke and Ms. Moore in a scene from âThe Dick Van Dyke Show,â which ran for five seasons in the 1960s. Just before we sat down to watch TV, Ms. Moore apologized, not for the first time that day, about a watery eye that was giving her trouble. âForgive my teardrop,â she said. âYouâre not making me sad."
She had wanted to watch the episode titled âChuckles Bites the Dust,â a daffy high point of Season 6 that involves the death of a television clown. But hereâs a secret: Mary Tyler Moore does not own all of the âMary Tyler Mooreâ DVDs. So instead we watched the series finale, broadcast the next season, in March 1977.
|by Anonymous||reply 62||01/26/2012|
I had to ask about the signature moment in the opening collage in which Ms. Moore joyously tosses her hat into the Minneapolis sky.
âIt was a hat that my aunt had given me for Christmas,â she said, âand I brought it with me because they said: âBe sure and dress warm. Itâs going to be freezing in Minneapolis.â So â I forget which writer it was â but we were all outside, and he said: âYou know what would be good? If you take that hat, the beret, and throw it in the air.â â
Ted Knight dominates the finale, in which the entire staff of the TV station where Mary works is fired except for his loopy newscaster character. âHe was a real actor,â Ms. Moore said during a particularly hilarious turn by Knight, who died in 1986. âHe took every moment seriously.â
Knight was cracking up the audience. âThat was my fatherâs âHu,â â Ms. Moore said, recognizing his laugh.
Another scene also stirred her emotions: when Valerie Harper and Cloris Leachman, whose âMary Tyler Mooreâ characters had been spun off into their own sitcoms, return. âThis was hard,â Ms. Moore said as their scene played out, âdoing this hello again, then goodbye.â
At the episodeâs end Ms. Moore introduces her co-stars to the studio audience one by one. âThe best cast ever,â she calls them. Time may have proved her right: two â Ms. White and Ed Asner â already have the lifetime achievement award that Mr. Van Dyke is to present to Ms. Moore this weekend.
Then the camera pans the audience as it applauds the final bow. âThereâs my dad,â she said, pointing him out. âWith the white hair. Tall.â Heâs in the front row.
As we finished, Ms. Moore reached for the tissue box. âNow I am crying,â she said. âItâs not just a bad eye.â

I read her autobiography a few years ago and believe I remember her saying she had a facelift during her MTM Show days, which I suppose would have been her first. She's definitely had work done many times. I think her son had problems and, although she claims he accidentally shot himself while cleaning one of his guns, he probably committed suicide. I suppose that's her way of dealing with his death. Decades of diabetes has definitely taken a toll on her frail body. Regardless, I've always liked her.

She is 77. I have now triple checked. She is at the age where extreme thinness absolutely robs your face of any last gasp of beauty. The exact same thing is happening to my own mother who is 80. Coincidentally my mom was often compared to MTM, Audrey Hepburn, and Jackie Onassis. She was one of Ford's early runway models in the late/mid 50's-'65. She was leaving modeling when Twiggy was becoming the FACE. She, like MTM stayed stick thin her entire life. She could still wear her high school clothes today. And it has garnered her a lot of attention, which she has to have all day every day. But suddenly, BOOM! Her face started looking more and more gaunt and wasted. She was not having Botox at all, but she had done a face lift at 60. Now she is a 5'9 size 2 who frankly doesn't look as well as the 10 year older Betty White. Betty has a little fullness left in her face, which gives her a better appearance IMO. You know what they say, "after 55 it's your face or your ass--choose."

I've been with type 1diabeties for 31 yrs. and not complaining, though she's been my hero... For being 75 and gone through the harsh life of being diabetic. And having medical surgery a few yrs back. Hats off to Mary. She's made many people laugh for yrs to come. Reading some of the responses r only giving sad thoughts, try changing ur words. Has she ever done wrong to u. Most likely not. Then why wld u say such things... What a sad place to b, really life is short so make good with the time u have. Live, laugh and love. And remember to smile often. What someone does to their self is their decision. And not ours!

I am appalled at how mean spirited everyone is! She is suffering from the ravages of diabetes. She is a truly lovely lady who gave us all MANY MANY happy hours watching her on t.v. We should be sympathetic now and supportive and try to "repay" the happiness she gave us growing up with kind thoughts and well wishes!

Years ago I saw Alan Cumming being interviewed (I think it was on Graham Norton). And the interviewer was asking him about the people he worked with and mentioned MTM. Alan must have been a little drunk because he said, "Yes I worked with Mary and everyone in the project kept saying, Doesn't Mary look wonderful? and I am thinking, NO!! she doesn't look wonderful. Look what she did to her face"
I have searched the web for this interview and can not find it, but it was funny and honest

70 is not old enough to look that bad. Betty White looks better at 92 than MTM at 75-ish.

Yes, some is diabetes, but plastic surgery when you are diabetic is insane. Especially more than once. Healing, etc. She ruined her own face. Plain and simple.

I am wondering about the "medical surgery" cited in R85. Actually, I'm wondering what other kinds of surgery there are

R87 Apparently he said
"Everybody's saying 'Oh, doesn't Mary look great!' and I want to say 'No - she looks like she's been in a fire!'"

Mary Tyler Moore...a favorite of mine forever who had the best show on television ever. Love her. MTM is a national treasure.
If she doesn't have a Kennedy Center Honor--she should!
