Rue McClanahan passed away early this morning after suffering a massive stroke. The Golden Girls star suffered a previous stroke in November, from which she never fully recovered. More to come. Thank you for being a friend, Rue. [People]
So Golden Girls started in 1985 meaning she was just 51 then... I didn't watch it often but I always thought of them as old ladies. 51 isn't old. It's not even retirement age. Wow, how my perspective has changed. Wasn't she kind of young for that role?
