And The Winner Is…

Betty White; lover of animals!

Betty White has been quoted as saying “Of all the characters I have ever played, Rose Nylund is my favorite.”  Well of course she was!  Not only was ‘Rose’ a part of the dynamic foursome that was The Golden Girls, she was a loving, caring, most of the time naive, and always simple minded character […]

White Wedding

Who doesn’t love a good wedding?  The bride, the groom, the cake, music, flowers…all the elements coming together to make one perfect, romantic day for a couple of lovers getting ready to take their vows, exchange rings and start a new life together!  What’s not to like about that? Our golden ladies, Blanche, Dorothy, Rose […]

Craft Is The Word

Rue McClanahan working on a quilt she started while appearing on Maude.

I am not sure I have a favorite Golden Girl.  I guess I always leaned towards liking Blanche the best, followed by Sophia.  As I got older and continued to watch the shows, the episodes and the characters took on new meanings for me.  Although I love them all, Blanche, well actually Rue, has taken […]

Mom’s The Word

Bill Engvall once guest starred as Blanche's son on The Golden Palace

I am ever so grateful to still have my mother in my life!  At a very young age, my Mom along with her sister and brother lost their mother, my grandmother.  My Grandmother was only 39 years of age at the time of her death from Leukemia.  My cousins and I never knew her. So each day […]

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 […]

Remembering Bea

On April 25, 2009 the world said good bye to Bea Arthur.  At the age of 87 Bea had accomplished more than most people do in a lifetime.  Her legacy lives on today and will for many years to come! Bea is probably most famously known for her epic roles as Maude Findlay on the […]

Thank You For Being A Friend?

Bea Arthur, Betty White & Rue McClanahan At Barnes & Noble

Every once in a while a certain TV character enters your heart and has the power to leave an imprint that stays.  The Golden Girls had four of those characters!  Blanche, Rose, Dorothy and Sophia were, from the beginning an awesome foursome that proved that no matter where you came from, or what your belief […]

The four ladies had all been previously married and now they are of a certain age and live together in Blanche’s home in Florida.   Dorothy is […]
