Estelle Getty, most famous for her role as Sophia Petrillo on The Golden Girls died today, just three days shy of her 85th birthday. She was actually younger than than Bea Arthur and Betty White. One of the best episodes was Dorothy walked in on Sophia and some guy in bed and asked, "What's going on here?" Sophia replied, "Afterglow." [TMZ]
Estelle- as Sophia, you proudly represented the fiesty nature of the Italian-American woman and for that I shall forever adore you. Thank you for being a friend. I shall hereby begin all posts today with "Picture it, pussycat. (Insert city here, insert year here)."
