Farewell Golden Girl ~ Rue McClanahan Dead

There is a Golden Girl reunion going on in Heaven and Rue McClanahan just joined it. Rue is known for her role as the sexiest man-eater of the 80s, Blanche Devereaux on the hit TV show The Golden Girls. The show ran on NBC from 1985 to 1992. We have lost one Golden Girl each year for the last three years (Beatrice Arthur, died from cancer in 2009, Estelle Getty died in 2008).
Rue McClanahan passed away June 3, 2010 of a massive stroke. She was 76-years-old.

  1. What a great picture of Rue. She was fantastic, and a friend of the community, I think. I thought she was the most pungent of the GG's; I learned later that a lot of the words that came out of her mouth were put there by Marc Cherry, the creator of Desperate Housewives, who is gay. Cherry once said that most of the writers on the GGs were gay, thus the constant run of dick jokes, size jokes, and deliciously off-color sex jokes.
