Mary Tyler Moore reunites with her former television co-star Betty White on the second season premiere of the comedy series "Hot in Cleveland" on Wednesday after more than 33 years. Moore, 74, and White, who turned 89 on Monday, starred on the sitcom "Mary Tyler Moore" in the 1970s. Moore played Mary Richards, a local news producer in Minneapolis, and White portrayed Sue Ann Nivens, host of the Martha Stewart-inspired show "The Happy Homemaker," whose punch lines often involved sexual innuendos. White told OnTheRedCarpet.com in November that she and Moore spent the entire day hugging one another when they filmed the "Hot in Cleveland" episode. On the show, set to air on TV Land at 10 p.m., Moore's character meets up with Elka, played by White, who was arrested in the season one cliffhanger, the cable network said in a statement. After "Mary Tyler Moore" ended in 1977, Moore went on to star in shows such as "The Naked Truth," "That '70s Show" and "Lipstick Jungle." White was voted the "AP Entertainer of the Year" by the Associated Press in 2010 after enjoying a pop culture comeback, especially among younger fans, following a "Saturday Night Live" hosting stint. She joked earlier this month that she thinks people have had an "overdose" of her. Check out Betty White's interview with OnTheRedCarpet.com below.
