R.I.P. Rue McClanahan

3 Jun

There is one less funny lady in the world today after the death of actress Rue McClanahan

The former “Golden Girl,” 76, died earlier today after suffering a brain hemorrhage.  The Emmy award winner made a name for herself in television comedy having appeared on Maude, All in the Family and The Golden Girls, where she played her most famous role as the saucy Blanche Devereaux.

McClanahan spent almost 50 years in the entertainment business and definitely kept busy after Golden Girls ended in the early 1990’s.  In recent years she made guest appearances on Hope & Faith, Law & Order and Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns.

She married six times and is survived by a son.

      Yep 6 times. Maybe she was more like Blanche than I thought…
