The Golden Girls

Trying to figure out how to spend your Mother’s Day? Well, TV Land has made that decision a little bit easier for you! TV Land’s “The Golden Girls” marathon pays tribute to the mother of all mothers, Sophia Petrillo (played by Estelle Getty), the very entertaining but tough-love mom to Dorothy (Bea Arthur). Tune in for the Mom-athon event this Sunday, May 11th from 7pm-10pm ET/PT.

TV Land kicks off “The Golden Girls” marathon with “Mother’s Day,” an episode where the girls reminisce about past Mother’s Days as they wait for phone calls from their children. In another episode entitled “Two Rode Together,” Dorothy (Bea Arthur) wants to spend some "quality" time with Sophia (Getty) so she takes her away for the weekend to Disney World. However, her attempts fail when a fed up Sophia storms out. Meanwhile, Rose (Betty White) and Blanche (Rue McClanahan) try their hand at writing children's stories. The marathon continues with “An Illegitimate Concern,” where Dorothy and Sophia enter a mother-daughter pageant at Shady Pines as Sonny & Cher.

Plus, stick around because there will be many more fan favorites that salute Sophia Petrillo. So, curl up on the couch with your mom and celebrate Mother’s day with TV Land!

Betty White

TV Land will debut the Emmy® Award-winning comedy “The Golden Girls” on Saturday, March 16th. Marathons will launch on Saturday and Sunday, March 16 and 17, from 3-11pm, followed by a week-long primetime tribute to each of the characters. Then, fans take over the air! Viewers can go online now* and choose their favorite episodes on TV Land’s Facebook Page, then watch the results on Friday, March 22 from 7-10pm. After launch week, the show will settle into its regular timeslot of 7pm, Monday through Saturday, and 5pm on Sundays. Fans of “The Golden Girls” can keep up with the series on Facebook and TV Land’s Tumblr, which will be posting fun activities like tips for throwing the best viewing party and character “sass-offs” all week long and beyond!

The show revolves around Dorothy (Bea Arthur), Rose (Betty White), Blanche (Rue McClanahan) and Sophia (Estelle Getty), four single women “of a certain age” who live together in Miami, years after being widowed or divorced. Rose’s endearing innocence, Dorothy’s sharp wit and cynicism, Blanche’s man-eating ways and Sophia’s no-holds-barred approach to life make “The Golden Girls” ready for laughs. Though they don’t always get along, these women remain loyal “pals and confidants” through every life-changing moment.

Wedding Of Rue McClanahan And Morrow Wilson

Rue McClanahan

Old friend Rue McClanahan, the Emmy-winning actress who brought the sexually liberated Southern belle Blanche Devereaux to life on the hit television show "The Golden Girls," has died of a stroke. She was 76 years old. This is a very sad day in American television history and a very sad for us here at Times Square Gossip. Rue was a old time actress with old time values. She came from the days when stars were really stars and knew how to act like one. I was very lucky to have shot her wedding to actor Morrow Wilson on Christmas day at the famed Waldorf Astoria. Jack Klugman was there and Honeymooner Joyce (Trixie) Randolph as well as many more stars to help her celebrate. The paparazzi were swarming everywhere, but somehow we managed to keep them away and I got the exclusive shots that went worldwide. She looked stunning and was all smiles even know she was fighting Breast Cancer. I was also very lucky to go on the honeymoon with Rue and Morrow, to capture the happiness of their very special moment. I remember that day. A huge snowstorm as we rode in the limo drinking champagne and laughing at so many things. It was a very long trip to some ultra exclusive place in Connecticut and Rue and Morrow had the best time despite Rue not feeling very well from chemo. We did many things over the years together. We hosted each others birthday parties at the top nightclubs in New York City, we did photo shoots in the Hampton's and we had wonderful dinners together. Rue was a working actress. I never knew where she got the energy, she always wanted to work. She wore me out with all her stamina. Rue was also very lucky to have Morrow Wilson and they adored each other. He watched over her and was always ready to support her in any project she was involved in. She used to tell me how she met him, in some show they were both involved with. She looked across the stage and saw Morrow and that was it. They were both hooked. They were the perfect couple. After so many marriages for Rue, she finally found her guy. Sadly, the past few years I lost contact with Rue, as I had so many problems in my life, that we just drifted apart. The last time I saw her was at some Broadway signing a couple of years ago. I meant to call her to say hello, but I just never got around to it. I walked by her home last week and was thinking about ringing her bell to say hello, but I was late for a meeting. Rue brought so much joy to my life and hopefully I brought some joy into hers. I will miss this talented actress so much, she made me laugh, she made us all laugh!
