R.I.P. Rue McClanahan
Sad news Golden Girls fans. One of the last two remaining of the bunch has passed away at the ripe age of 76 today in New York City of a stroke. I’ll always remember the fiesty and salacious Blanche Devereaux that showed women everywhere that sex drive didn’t stop after menopause and inspired a generation of Cougars and MILFs worldwide.
The star of so many other great television comedies has passed on, leaving only Betty White as the sole survivor of The Golden Girls cast. I can fondly recall watching her on both Mama’s Family and The Golden Girls with my mom. I guess now I’ll have to cross one item off my bucket list seeing how it’s impossible to fulfill now.
I still think her role as the blind teacher during the bug dissection scene in Starship Troopers was her pinnacle of her geek popularity. We’ll miss you Rue.
