Alas! Original Golden Girl Estelle Getty (Sophia) has died at 84.
Check out “Sophia’s” comments on the ages in obituaries at 1:21 of this clip.
Speaking of ages, you know who is 86? Bea Arthur! She was two years OLDER than the woman who played her mother on TV! Very Anne Bancroft as Mrs. Robinson, no?
I was planning to post some Golden Girls shopping suggestions later this week, but I’ll share them now, since this is an important day in Golden Girls history. First, all you Golden Girl wannabes should consider this Proenza Schouler top on Net-a-Porter.
These Alexander McQueen leggings are wine-colored rather than gold, but they’re so beautiful I’d grant honorary membership to anyone who gets them. I think that’s sufficient motivation for spending $2,345 on them, don’t you?
that is so sad she was my favorite and still is i watch it everyday on lifetime at 9 and 4
Great tie in-and for some reason I just thought none of the golden girls would ever die! I thought the were just eternally old and lovely. So sad.BTW, love the McQueen leggings!
so sad to see her go, but at least lifetime still plays the golden girls right? 🙂

June Shin says
She was my favorite Golden Girl. I think I heard somewhere that she was actually the youngest out of all of them!
CULTURE CREATORS says
GOLDEN GIRLS! gotta love it.
Miss White, I know, right? But I had the gang stuff already to go and what with talking about Estelle, I decided to just go for it.
Jill Sherman says

…or my mom will shoot.
Yes, I’ll be firing up my credit card right now for those leggings! And that spangly top.
I’m so sad about Estelle Getty. I loved her. She had her own brand of caustic.
Practically Perfect In Every Way says
she was my favorite, she is my inspriation as a mother. (I hope my daughter doesn’t grow up to look like an ugly drag queen…)
ps. I think they should bury her in the outfit you picked out… she will look rockin for eternity!

What sad news. We were just singing the theme tune “Thank You For Being A Friend” before bed on Monday night after watching “Burn Notice” which is set in Miami which reminded us of Golden Girls.

How sad, I love Estelle. I was such a huuuge Golden girls fan, it was one of mine and my grandmother’s favorites (along with Murder She Wrote) when I was little. I would watch them with her…. RIP, Estelle! 🙁
Always In Style says
Oh no — I had no idea about Estelle but I’d definitely buy that Proenza Schouler and rock it in her honor 🙂
Grant Miller says
She was no Betty White.
ah yeah, i think betty white was my favorite on the series too… it was kind of like the precursor to sex and the city… heheh
you know i think i remember that estelle was younger than bea arthur… but she was also made up to look older as in real life she actually colored her hair.
(i’m such a nerd for knowing all this)
