You’re Gonna Make It After All!
Written by Rebeka Knott
Who can turn the world on with her smile? Mary Richards, that’s who! Mary Richards (Mary Tyler Moore) was the beautiful, fresh-faced, single, career woman on the hit television sitcom, The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Mary was thirty-something, never married and set out on her own, in that iconic 1970 Ford Mustang, after breaking up with her fiancé. She landed in the big city of Minneapolis and the rest, my friends, is history!
Upon arrival in the big city, Mary Richards was starting to realize the gravity of her situation. She was in unfamiliar territory and was about to find out what she was really made of. Mary found herself living in a modest, 3rd floor apartment of a beautiful Victorian house. She made fast friends with her housemates/neighbors, Rhoda and Phyllis. Rhoda and Phyllis were constantly trading insults, leaving Mary as the unofficial referee.
