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 […]

Coco

Charles Levin as Coco

Writers, directors and producers all have an arsenal of tricks up their sleeves to keep their shows flowing in the right direction.  For example, if an actor or actress leaves the show they “kill them off”, or write into the script that they are moving away.  If an actress is pregnant in real life but […]

Golden Men Part II

Harold Gould played Miles Webber on The Golden Girls

We know quite well how Sophia and Dorothy for that matter felt about Stanley Zbornak!  I can’t  count the numerous times that Sophia referred to him as a “yutz”, or a “botchagoloup” among other things!  Dorothy at times can’t believe she married him, falling for his “smoothness” to get her to sleep with him!  There […]

Golden Men

Herb Edelman as Stan Zbornak

Our four golden ladies were wonderful in their own right, now doubt, but without the right supporting cast and crew, they would never have been able to pull off some of their infamous stunts and even funnier lines! Enter Herb Edleman and Harold Gould!  Their recurring roles on the Golden Girls gave us added enjoyment, […]

Under the Knife

Our Golden Girls

Everyone wants to look their best!  People spend tons of money on going to the salon, cutting and coloring their hair, manicures and pedicures.  Woman smear makeup on their faces (myself included) to jazz up their appearance and make them feel beautiful! Others go a more drastic route and diet, or workout to achieve a […]

Golden Obsession

Elvis impersonators at Sophia's wedding!

Everybody has at least one, maybe even more!  Obsessions!  They can be for fun, for a hobby, out of interest or they can also be not so fun, scary, dangerous and even deadly!  Our favorite girls were no different! One obsession we all know and love about our ladies was their obsession for cheesecake!  I […]

Religion

A young Estelle Getty

There is much to learn about our beloved Estelle Getty!  One thing we do know is that she was incredible, especially as our favorite golden mother, Sophia Petrillo! In our favorite TV series of all time, Estelle’s character, Sophia was a witty, sharp tongued, sarcastic, firecracker of a woman!  She made us laugh almost to […]

White Wedding

Our golden ladies, Blanche, Dorothy, Rose […]

So Sleepy…

Susan Harris, creator of The Golden Girls

As I sit here on this dreary, gray, rainy Monday, the thought of taking a nap definitely crosses my mind!  Hunkering down on the sofa under the soft handmade cotton blanket my Mom knitted for me, with the Golden Girls playing on the DVD player in the background of course is a stellar idea.   My […]

Part of the Magic…

Estelle Getty[1]

So, who is your favorite Golden Girl?  How many of you love Sophia?  Whether she is your favorite GG or not, you cannot deny loving Estelle for her portrayal of the witty, outspoken and sarcastic Sophia Petrillo!  I cannot even begin to imagine what The Golden Girls would have been like without Sophia or worse […]
