Another Golden Girl is Gone to Glory. Here’s to you, Rue McClanahan!
I woke up yesterday to find out (via Twitter) that Rue McClanahan died. I bust out an EPIC *WALL SLIDE* all up through there! Not Blanche!!! Not now! I loved Blanche. She was the Matron Saint of Classy Geriatric HoSh*t. No one wore a floral negligee like Blanche. And her love of her bosoms was admirable. She was conceited and she KNEW she had a reason. Plus the super country accent? *hollers* BLANCHE!!!
Rue McClanahan was super talented and this is a huge loss. This makes me sad. Last year, I wrote about how old TV shows rocked, and Golden Girls was at the top of my list. When I wrote that post, there were 3 of them alive. Bea Arthur hadn’t passed then. All we have is ONE Golden Girl left now. One has died every year since 2008. Estelle Getty (Sofia) left us first. Bea Arthur (Dorothy) stole away to Jesus in 2009. Now Rue McClanahan (Blanche) don passed on to sit on the right hand of the Lawd.
Someone go anoint Betty White with some holy oil! *WALL SLIDES AGAIN* My eSis PBG started off a prayer circle with this: “Dear Lord, Let us keep Betty White. Please. Take anybody from FoxNews or the bamas from BP. Just let us keep MotherWhite.”
So I wanted to keep it going. My heart can’t take harm befalling Betty White. Rose is my homette. So join me as we pray for her safety. I’m even willing to bargain a couple of my ratchet habits. So I say this prayer of protection:
Dear Lord, can I sacrifice 2 baby lambs and 4 of Janice combs’ chinchilla coats? Wrap Your armor of protection around Betty White! I promise to not watch BET’s ratchetness or VH1′s troop of trifling trollops for 2 weeks if you keep Rose safe. I’ll even go a week without proclaiming my hate for Lil Duval if you let us have Betty White indefinitely. Please CC all the other deities. Vishnu, Buddha & ‘em.
Thank You for being a friend
Travel down the road and back again
Your heart is true, you’re a pal and a confidante
And if you threw a party
Invited everyone you knew
You would see the greatest gift from me to you
Was a card attached that said…
