Rue McClanahan, who is best known for her role as the fiesty, optimistic (and perpetually horny) Blanche Devereaux on the popular 80’s series “Golden Girls” has died. PEOPLE Magazine is reporting that she suffered a massive stroke early this morning and died at the age of 76. Fellow “GG” stars Estelle Getty and Bea Arthur passed away in 2008 and 2009, respectively.
“Golden Girls” was a huge part of my “coming of age” years, as my roomie Keisha and I would always sit down together to watch this show, without fail, every single night. It was a fun part of my day, being able to watch these old “biddies” bicker and tease – and most of all – love and support each other.
Here’s a great clip that I found on YouTube, that I think everyone would enjoy watching to remember these very funny women.
