Dr. S. Robert Levine, to whom Moore had been married for 33 years, spoke to People magazine.
A week since the death of television icon Mary Tyler Moore, the star’s husband, Dr. S. Robert Levine, is finding solace through his grief in the knowledge that her legacy will influence new generations of young women, opening up for the first time since she died.
On January 25th, the beloved actress passed away at the age of 80, surrounded by friends and family. She had been hospitalised and dependent on a ventilator for a week previously, suffering from pneumonia brought on by complications in her decades-long battle with diabetes.
A number of Moore’s friends and family – including New York-based cardiologist Levine, to whom she had been married for 33 years – remembered her for a cover feature for the new issue of People magazine.
The Emmy-winning actress passed away surrounded by her friends and family in Connecticut on Wednesday.
The much-loved television and film actress Mary Tyler Moore has died at the age of 80, according to a statement from her publicist.
The Emmy Award-winning star was best known in the United States for her TV roles in ‘The Dick Van Dyke Show’ in the 1960s and her eponymous ‘The Mary Tyler Moore Show’ in the 1970s. In 1980, she picked up an Oscar nomination for her memorable performance opposite Donald Sutherland in Ordinary People.
Moore is credited with having revolutionised the depiction of women on the small screen as the medium evolved, particularly on her own show which ran for seven seasons between 1970 and 1977 and was described by Time magazine as one of 17 shows that changed television. She played TV producer Mary Richards, a single woman jilted by her boyfriend who resurrects her career in a new town.

Last year's Slackers proved this was tepid comedy ground at best, and thankfully Cheats improves on the formula a tad thanks to its younger and more engaging cast. It's still the usual stuff: stealing tests, making crib sheets, bribing teachers' children, all with virtually no remorse -- stuff that was done impressively in Animal House and hasn't gone very far since. This is 2003, man! Where's the technology!?

The sophomore effort of writer/director David O. Russell (whose first film, Spanking the Monkey, was a real jaw-dropper by virtue of its title alone) is a comedy/romance that somehow captures the feel of both a home movie and an acid trip together. On the surface, the story of Mel Coplin (Ben Stiller) and his search for his birth parents is a tried-and-true tale. In reality, Flirting With Disaster has more twists than a French braid and as much comedy as, well, as much brash and uncompromising comedy as anything else has given us this year.

We soon see that Conrad's problems run deep, as what should be quaint little interactions between he and doting mom (Mary Tyler Moore, excellent here), or he and imperviously upbeat dad (Donald Sutherland, ditto) turn perverse and creepy. His shrink (Judd Hirsch) doesn't offer any "It's not your fault" platitudes, leaving Conrad's healing process up to himself. The only joy he finds is with his new girl Jeannine (Elizabeth McGovern, in her second role ever), who would be perfectly cast -- except she looks too much like Karen (Dinah Manoff), Conrad's friend from the hospital.
