Sad, Sad Situation



The ever lovely Dr P sent me a link to this story about a Golden Girls reunion and boy was I glad.

To start with...
But, Arthur noted, getting together now isn't at all like the old days.

"No," she said, flatly.

After all, Getty, 81, was conspicuously absent. Getty retired in 2000, after announcing she had Parkinson's disease.

Arthur could barely get through a sentence, choking up when talking about how Getty's memory had faded.

And McClanahan detailed her own recent phone conversation with her former co-star.

"I said, `Hey, Estelle, how ya doin'?' And all she said was ... `Yes.'
Brings tears to the queers, don't it?

    And to the straights as well. I had no idea about Estelle. How sad.

    Thanks for sharing this with us. :)
