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!"

Harper, who has terminal brain cancer, will join Mary Tyler Moore and Cloris Leachman as guests on an episode of TV Land's Hot In Cleveland, which stars other Mary Tyler Moore Show alums Betty White and Georgia Engel, PEOPLE has confirmed.
A source tells PEOPLE: "The cast is really excited to have Valerie guest star. They feel she is a true icon, and they are touched by her story."

She's already tackled Dancing with the Stars, but Cloris Leachman has another reality competition in her sights – American Idol.
When her manager (who is also her son) asked the veteran actress what she wanted to do after her stint on DWTS, "My mouth said American Idol," Leachman told PEOPLE recently while promoting her Fox sitcom Raising Hope.

Following the success of Betty White's SNL hosting gig, bookers at NBC might be hoping to have another senior moment.
And while it would be tough to top White's digs at Facebook, double entendres about her muffin and her racy kiss with MacGruber, Hollywood has more than its fair share of women who are over 60 and up for the job.
In fact, a Carol Burnett Facebook campaign has sprung up – it worked for Betty, after all. But as The New York Times points out, Burnett should be in no rush. This coming weekend will bring the SNL season finale, to be hosted by Alec Baldwin.
