Twilight for a Golden Girl


Dish is reporting on the declining health of Estelle Getty:

Estellegetty Since 2004, it’s been common knowledge that Getty suffers from dementia. But, apparently, it’s getting worse.

RUE McCLANAHAN, who played Blanche on the [Golden Girls], told Entertainment Tonight: “Estelle doesn’t know anything about having done a show called Golden Girls. She doesn’t recognize any of us; doesn’t recognize us in person and doesn’t recognize us over the phone. And she can’t really carry on a conversation anymore.”

Here is a bonus link to some of the best Estelle/Sophia quotes.  One of our favorites:

Blanche : I treat my body like a temple.
Sophia : Yeah, open to everyone, day or night.
