Despite her terminal cancer diagnosis, Valerie Harper is determined to compete on the upcoming season of the hit dancing competition, Dancing With The Stars.
The Mary Tyler Moore Show actress, who turned 74 last week, was diagnosed with leptomeningeal carcinomatosis, in March and was given a mere three months to live, but she is reportedly doing well and has signed on to compete on the popular dance show.
According to sources, Harper has been practicing with her dancing partner Tristan MacManus and can’t wait to continue her battle on the dance floor. Other contestants rumored to be joining the show include reality star Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi, actress Elizabeth Berkley, Glee actress Amber Riley and singer Christina Milian.
Leah Remini, who hit the headlines when she quit the Church of Scientology earlier this summer, is also among those who will be dancing for the show’s coveted mirror ball trophy on season 17.
