Growing Old with the Girls

Dorothy and Blanche visit Rose during one of her hospital stays.

Any fan of the Golden Girls can tell you what the show is about; four single, older women living together under one roof. Together the four friends that are Blanche, Rose, Sophia and Dorothy share the house, jewelry, dates, tears, fears and cheesecakes. Though they have many things in common and a few things that […]

The Spin Off of Golden Girls

1396711346-0

I am not quite sure what the first ever TV series spin-off was.  One article I have read states that it was the Andy Griffith show, being spun from The Danny Thomas Show.  Another resource says that Jackie Gleeson claimed the first spin-off with his show The Honeymooners in 1955 that supposedly came from The […]

These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…”, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year…”  Just two of the many, many Christmas songs that you are most likely hearing on the radio and in the stores this time of year!  However, when I hear the one about whiskers on kittens, and soft woolen mittens, […]

Seeing MORE Stars

Quentin-Tarantino

In my last article we discussed some of the mega stars that had graced the set of The Golden Girls, some already known, and some getting their start.  However, I knew it would take a whole other article to further discuss some of the magnitude of star quality that I was surprised by!  If you […]

Seeing Stars

golden girls

We can certainly agree that our four main characters were/are brilliant and bright stars in their own right!  But during the show’s run, there have been more stars walk through Blanche’s, Dorothy’s, Rose’s and Sophia’s home than you can see when you look up at the nighttime sky.  Okay, slight exaggeration, but not by much!  […]

May I Have This Dance?

Dorothy and Blanche's shocked faces when Rose does somersaults around the dance floor!

During the course of The Golden Girls’ seven year stretch, we saw the four best friends that were Dorothy, Sophia, Blanche and Rose have so many good times!  The friends, the games, the men, the parties, the dancing!  So many good times to be had by four women in their 50’s, living together.  But the […]

Nothing to Fear but Death Itself

The one and only Estelle Getty

We have had many conversations, rather, I have and you have read about how awesomely amazing the Golden Girls truly were!  Both on screen and off, we have a certain love affair with them!  We have talked about how no one else in this world could possibly do the job that they have done as […]

To Assist Or Not To Assist

Bea Arthur

When a loved one is sick and miserable it can break your heart and you would do anything in your power to help that loved one.  I remember many nights when my children were babies and were up at night due to teething, tummy aches and fevers.  Even now that they are older, they still […]

A Love of a Lifetime

Betty White and Allen Ludden

During the Golden Girls’ seven year stretch Rose Nylund had few romances.  Rose’s one true love undoubtedly was her husband Charlie!  It took a long time and few short romances and some crazy dates in between, but she finally met and fell in love with Miles Webber.  Similar to Rose, Betty White had to go […]

Repeating History

Today as I was walking through a popular department store, I took extra special notice to the kitchen wares department and the home décor aisles.  Many of the products were quite “retro” and would go perfectly in a home where the owners were looking to step back in time to the 1970’s!  I saw a […]
