Beverly, who often plays the stereotypical blonde and nice moms and girlfriends to the stars, especially on TV, occasionally supported both Mary Tyler Moore and Valerie Harper in their respective sitcoms and in several TV movies with Moore. She also starred in her own one-woman show on stage entitled Yes Sir, That's My Baby in the late 90s. She began writing the play after taking a UCLA writing class. The show details her failure to conceive a baby at 40+ years of age, and then the later frustrations of the adoption process.
