My name is Rhoda Morgenstern. I was born in the Bronx, New York in December, 1941. I've always felt responsible for World War II. The first thing I remember liking that liked me back was food. I had a bad puberty, it lasted 17 years. I'm a high school graduate, I went to art school. My entrance exam was on a book of matches. I decided to move out of the house when I was 24, my mother still refers to this as the time I ran away from home. Eventually I ran to Minneapolis where it's cold, and I figured I'd keep better. Now I'm back in Manhattan. New York, this is your last chance!

In the spin-off of The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Rhoda Morgenstern moves back home to New York City from Minneapolis. There, she met Joe Gerard, and married him soon after. However, their marriage did not last, and Rhoda had to face New York City as a 30-something divorcée, and constantly deal with her mother, Ida.

During its 5 seasons, Rhoda was nominated for a total of 11 Emmys and 7 Golden Globes, and won 2 Emmys and 2 Golden Globes.
