Mary Tyler Moore unrecognizable with swollen face

Mary Tyler Moore, 74, was almost unrecognizable when she showed up at the opening night of the Broadway revival of Stephen Sondheim’s Follies at New York’s Marquis Theater last night. Her appearance sparked rumors that she’s had more cosmetic surgery done, adding to her past face lifts, nose job and lip augmentation, but a source said Mary’s swollen face was the result of a fall when she tripped over her Golden Retriever at home. Moore, who has never admitted to having had surgery on her face, underwent brain surgery earlier this year to remove a benign tumor. Moore shot to fame in 1961 when she was cast as Dick Van Dyke’s young wife on The Dick Van Dyke Show, then became a TV icon when she starred in her own series, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, which ran from 1970 to 1977.

    What a courageous woman.

    Oh yuck. Looks like a hemorrhoid of epic proportions. I remember getting scared by something at the Ringling Bros. Circus by something that looked like that.

    This is not courage, this is a problem. No woman in her right mind who looked like MTM would EVER go out in public. Something is wrong here, and the face is secondary…

    Maybe it was a costume themed event and she is going as Batman villain Two-Face.

    Meow Meow, so you’re saying a person that has brain surgery and possible deformation after said surgery should just hide away in a tower like the hunchback of Notre-Dame? lol.

    How unkind some of you are…who knows what life has in store for you. Let’s hope people are kinder to you when you need kindness, than you have been to others. “Nasty and Mean are two words that apply here, and people many times get what they’ve got coming.
