We’ve always gotten along,” Betty White said during the reunion. “It would be different if it were one of those shows where we don’t speak. That wouldn’t have been any fun,” the actress also claimed.
However, there were not only good news that the famous actresses have to share. Valerie Harper has unfortunately been diagnosed with a severe condition. The star is facing terminal cancer and doctors have given her the worst prognosis possible. In March the actress has announced that doctors have given her as little as three months to live.
