Mary Tyler Moore died Wednesday at age 80, her publicist confirms to the AP. Sources previously told TMZ that family members were at the hospital saying goodbye, and Moore's publicist says she was surrounded by family and friends when she died. Moore, star of her own show as well as The Dick Van Dyke Show, was reportedly in critical condition due to a number of health problems and had been on a respirator for more than a week, according to TMZ's sources. She'd had Type 1 diabetes for some time, and also had brain surgery to remove a benign tumor in 2011. (More Mary Tyler Moore stories.)
