Now that we know Larry Hagman will be making a guest appearance on Desperate Housewives, we find that another former prime time favorite is making her guest appearance there too. It’s Valerie Harper known from her days playing spunky Rhoda Mergenstern on Rhoda and the Mary Tyler Moore Show.

It should be fun to see what kind of character she’ll bring to the show, but from this description, it may be quite fun to watch:

When Lesley Ann Warren returns to Desperate Housewives for the first time in six years as Susan’s spacey mom, Sophie, she’ll be bringing along her sister, Claire, played by Rhoda Morgenstern herself, Valerie Harper! Housewives executive producer Bob Daily tells me Aunt Claire, who likes her booze, will come visit niece Susan (Teri Hatcher) in the hospital after she sustains injuries in a dangerous neighborhood riot that will close out 2010. Look for Valerie, 71, to appear in the second new episode of 2011.
