Time can't alter solid friendships. Just ask Mary Tyler Moore, Valerie Harper, Cloris Leachman and Georgia Engel – who reunited with Betty White this week to tape an upcoming episode of the TVLand sitcom Hot In Cleveland.
It made for an emotional week, agreed the women, who gathered Thursday afternoon for a press conference on the CBS Radford studio lot, where the classic The Mary Tyler Moore Show was filmed from 1970-77.
"The tears come up, but then they're part of the laughter," said Harper, 73. "Did you ever laugh till you cried? That's been happening a lot. It's been so full of life and joy and love. And fun!"

Betty White doesn't have many qualms about aging. In fact, she's reveling in it.
"Best thing about being in your 90s is you're spoiled rotten," the Hot in Cleveland star says on Betty White's Second Annual 90th Birthday Special, which airs on NBC Tuesday, Feb. 5 at 8 p.m. "Everybody spoils you like mad and they treat you with such respect because you're old. Little do they know, you haven't changed. You haven't changed in [the brain]. You're just 90 every place else."
The actress, who has recovered after catching the flu just before her birthday last month, jokes, "Now that I'm 91, as opposed to being 90, I'm much wiser. I'm much more aware and I'm much sexier."

Betty White received a very special – albeit very slimy – gift for her 91st birthday.
To mark her Thursday milestone, the Lifeline Program – a company dedicated to life-settlement specialists for which she is a spokesperson – adopted a red-tailed boa from the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens in her name.
For White, a longtime supporter and ambassador to the zoo, the snake was a familiar face.

Christmas is going to be very cozy for Betty White and her dog Pontiac – especially since the 7-year-old pooch has been relinquished of his Elizabethan collar, a.k.a. the "cone of shame."
"He had little growths on his leg and he had to have it removed, so he had to wear one of those plastic collars so he wouldn't take his stitches out," White told PEOPLE at Monday's one-year anniversary party for L.A. Love and Leashes, a nonprofit that finds homes for dogs and cats in Los Angeles shelters. "Well, he got it off today and he's a happy Ponty tonight!"

At 90 years old, Betty White says she feels "so good and energetic" – but she doesn't owe her health to good habits.
"I should follow better eating health rules," the Hot in Cleveland star admits to PEOPLE. "But hot dogs and Red Vines and potato chips and French fries are my favorite foods."
But White doesn't owe all of her well-being to plain luck.
"I have a two-story house and a very bad memory," she says, jokingly. "I'm up and down those stairs all the time."
