'Golden Girls' Star Rue McClanahan Dies at 76

Thursday, June 3, 2010 , Posted by Jimmy Kicks Corner at 10:56 AM

It seems this year is a bad year to be a celebrity, there has been at least 5 deaths this year. Those are just from T.V. shows, not all of them are up in their years, some are too young to go. I keep hearing the tune in my head "And another one bites the dust", I know it's harsh but it is what it is. This makes me look at the stars of today and compare them with the one's of later years, in my opinion there are only a handful of stars that can hold their own with the stars of the past.
Yes the movies may be better in today's time, but stop and think about it, is it because of the acting or because of the special effects? I believe the movies today are bigger and better in the effects department but not the acting department. I hope we don't lose all of our older actors at one time, that would be a tragedy. For those that don't know who this woman is, she played Blanche Devereaux on the 'Golden Girls' a long running sitcom in the mid 80's to the early 90's. She won an Emmy for her role on this show.

    My wife will be highly upset when she hears the news! She really loves the Golden Girls. I don't see why, but she does.

    I was very sad to hear this news. There is a little Blanche in all of us. She was always avoiding her real age, but then who wants to be 70? She was an old lady hood rat but she just wanted to feel sexy and wanted, who doesn't want that? The world is less of a place without her and i know I will miss her. I will leave you all with a classic quote of hers: "I'm jumpier than a virgin at a prison rodeo"

    I agree whole-heartedly with you Ann! You hit the nail on the head--we can relate a little to Blanche...:-)
