Sadly, yet another Golden Girl is gone.
Rue McClanahan passed away early this morning at age 76 after suffering a massive stroke.
Her death follows those of fellow Golden Girls stars Bea Arthur, who died last year at age 86, and Estelle Getty, who died in 2008 at age 84 .
But we’ll always remember Rue for her wicked wit, which often revolved around her characters’ overactive libidos.
Case in point, while chatting with our TV Talk host, Shaun Daily, last year about a role on NBC’s Law & Order, Rue said:
“I had to play a woman who had an affair with a United States president—or hadn’t.
“That’s the question: did she or didn’t she?
“Because her son says he is the president’s son, so they’re asking her, Did this happen?” she continued, before quipping:
“That’s something I’ve never done before. I’ve known a couple of presidents—but not that well!”
