Well its now official Betty White is the last of the Golden Girls. Rue McClanahan passed away today due to a stroke. Next to Betty she was my favorite Golden Gal, I remember watching her man crazy character Blanche Devereaux on a weekly basis (when the show originally aired) with my mom and sister back in the late 1980’s. I remember her being so graceful and tactful and yet raunchy at the same time, which was half the fun of watching that show! I spent most of this evening watching episodes of the Golden Girls remembering all of the good times I had watching her as a child.
Rest in peace Rue, you will be missed by many a gay, especially this one! I imagine that she, Estelle and Bea are enjoying a couple of mint juilips while lounging on a large lani catching up on old times.
