She was 85?!

I thought she was 85 back in the mid 1980s?

She was 84 :P
They made her look older back then.

The three remaining Golden Girls have a combined age of 246. The reunion might be closer than you think.

I always found 'Golden Girls' sort of repulsive.

The last thing I want to come across my mind is old ladies talking about sex. I'd rather hear them nag and pet their 7 cats just like any other old lady.
Comedy writers love to come up with unrealistic environments, and make people think that a wrinkled woman with her tities hanging down to the waist can be as promiscuous as a hot 21 year old bimbo.

I'd totally hit that.

Is she still warm? It might not be too late.

Well, I loved the Golden Girls. :-P Betty White was always my favorite. Seems like she's been old forever.

Betty White reminds me SO much of my Grandmother.

@ Jingles: Actually, even though she portrayed the oldest one on the show, Estelle Getty was the youngest member of the cast. I had heard she wasn't doing well recently. I'm sorry to hear of her passing.

I always liked her character...that's what I want to be like as an old lady. Her sense of humor was fabulous!

I hate how my avatars turn to broken jpegs after a day or two :( At least that's how it looks on my end.
