Rue McClanahan Dead at 76: Another Golden Girl Gone

9

And only Betty White remains.

Rue McClanahan -- or as you may know her Blanche Devereaux, the saucy Southern lady on the hit show, The Golden Girls -- passed away at 1 a.m. this morning from a stroke. McClanahan was at New York Presbyterian Hospital, surrounded by family.

McClanahan joins fellow cast mates, Bea Arthur (Dorothy) and Estelle Getty (Sophia) who passed last year and in 2008, respectively.

 

I loved that sexy dame. She gave all the ladies an excuse to use potty language and showed that sex wasn't something you gave up even when your hip went out.

We'll miss you Blanche!

I'm just glad Betty White had her SNL moment to shine this year.
