Rhoda's a Winner on Her Own and So Much for TV Taboos
At a time when TV has evolved from the sophistication level of a "G"-rated movie to what the trade calls a soft-core "R" in some instances, Rhoda has managed to bust three of TV's oldest taboos: she is Jewish, they live in New York and her husband was divorced. Valerie, 33, who is not Jewish but a lapsed Catholic, has herself flown in the face of all expectations: she has pulled none of the prima-donna tactics of other overnight rating stars. Observers are wondering if motherhood will be next for Rhoda. "I've never wanted a baby and I've felt great guilt," confides Valerie. "But thank God in the 20th century a woman can make a choice. With Rhoda, Dick [Schaal, her husband of 10 years] and I wouldn't have to work it in between the TV seasons, we could just work it into the script."
