NEW YORK (AP) - Valerie Harper, who played Rhoda Morgenstern on television's "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and its spinoff, "Rhoda," has been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer.

People magazine reports on its website Wednesday that the 73-year-old actress received the news on Jan. 15. The report says she has as little as three months to live.

Harper tells the magazine: "I don't think of dying. I think of being here now."

Harper's character, Rhoda, was one of television's most beloved sidekicks during the 1970s.

The Associated Press was trying to reach a representative for Harper.
