Back in April 1987 love was truly in the air for Tony Cacciotti and Valerie Harper. The bride and groom had just exchanged their vows to lawfully become husband and wife. But, as we’ll explore later, the smitten pair would have been blissfully unaware of the heartbreaking way their romance would come to an end 32 years later.
The couple getting married were certainly no ordinary Joes; Cacciotti was a producer and actor, while Harper was a household name in America. She had starred in one of the country’s most beloved TV shows of the 1970s: The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Yes, we are talking about the woman who brought Rhoda Morgenstern to life.
