Thank you for being a friend, Blanche!!


Thanks for all the memories Blanche.. You filled our living rooms with laughter!

You will be missed!

You were the sassiest gal on the tube!!!

Thank you so much, Rue/Blanche for all you have given us!!! We love you!
A few hours ago, I found out from my friend in L.A., that one of my FAV sit-com actresses, Rue McClanahan passed away this morning at 1 a.m. She suffered a massive stroke and didn't pull through. She was 76 years old. She was said to have been surrounded by her family at the time... Sooo sad!
I just LOVEEEEED The Golden Girls and Blanche was really my favourite character on the show. Now she's up there with Bea and Estelle... RIP Rue. You will be missed!

Leesa, I am also saddened by the death of Rue MacClanahan. Now only Betty White remains and she is well into her eighties... Betty actually has a sitcom coming up in some cable channel, so she is still working. Anyway, I woke to the bad news that "Blanche" was gone and that has kind of made me moody all day... Hugs.

Golden Girls was great, does not seem that long ago but I guess it must be! Sad news to hear from you first thing this morning. They will all be missed. Diane

Hi Leesa,

I also remember watching "Golden Girls", sometimes in Spanish and others in English at my parents'.

May I write also about Dennis Hopper, recently dead actor who starred the famous film "Easy Rider"?

Best Regards,

Antonio (Zaloette)

Bonjour Leesa!

What a beautiful tribute to one of my favorite actresses/comediens.

Golden Girls was a show that was very popular during a special time in my life, so seeing these photos brings back those times in my heart. Gosh, it seems like it was yesterday when I was watching this show every Saturday night with my friends and LAUGHING our butts off!

Truly one of the BEST shows on TV!

RIP RUE. You will be greatly missed!

Thank you for being a FRIEND!

I loved that show too. I actually met Rue McClanahan many years ago. She was at a TV function party, some sort of made for TV movie thing-and I got to go. She was very nice and had a real life southern accent. She and I were surfing the buffet table.

Hi Linda...

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your memories of Rue... That was great that you got to meet her-- in her prime, right? I just adored her for being so bold and sassy.... I loved them all, but she was my particular fav!!!
I am glad she had a "real" So. Belle accent and that she was sweet in real life.. I can picture that... She seems like the kind of person you'd like to have as a friend! She must have been a hoot!!
Take care, Leese

Hi Antonio....

Glad you also enjoyed Golden Girls!

Thanks for adding that about Dennis.. I think he also wrote it.. if I'm correct. I never saw it but I should defin. get around to watching it.. He was one of Hollywood's "greats!!!"

Hi Diane...

I was surprised and saddened at her passing... Sorry to be the bearer of sad news, but I had to do my tribute!

Hiya Ron...


You and I share the same sentiments for a wonderfully talented lady... I will always remember her, along with the others... Bea and Estelle...
What a HUGE reunion party must be going on up there now.. Still very sad, though!

Thanks for stopping by and adding your cherished thoughts...
