Heart wrenching.

Upon hearing the news of Rue McClanahan's passing, her fellow Golden Girl, Betty White, released this statement:

"Rue was a close and dear friend. I treasured our relationship. It hurts more than I even thought it would, if that's even possible."

We can't even begin to fathom how difficult losing all her former co-stars must be.

Rest in peace, Rue.

You will be missed.

  11. 11

    RIP Rue I love the golden girls.



  12. 12

    They worked together since the late 1960s. So sad! I will never forget Rue playing Betty's aunt in Mama's Family. Especially since Betty was more than a decade older than Rue.



  13. 13

    NO! Stop dying!



  14. 14

    BETTY WHITE IS A FKNG (C)UNT!!!! HOPE THIS BITCH FEELS THE WORST POSSIBLE REMORSE AND REGRET, FOR SAYING WHAT SHE SAID ON FEBRUARY 2ND OF THIS YEAR: "I hope you die, so I can be the last Golden Girl." (directed to Rue).



  15. 15

    I've just started watching "The Golden Girls", it's sad that they're all gone except Betty. I'm so glad she's out there and doing well. You feel like you know them. Sweet show.



  16. 16

    Betty then went to her refrigerator, removed the heart of Rue and laughed as she ate it, knowing that by finishing off her former co-star and eating her life force she would live for another year!!! Or is that was the Scientologists believe and it's Jenna Elfman trying to eat Tom Cruises heart? Ugh, well anyway, I get old sitcoms and Scientology confused.



  17. 17

    we know you love this fatass, now you have something to chime in about ad nauseum for the next 2 weeks.

    you're all about the benjamins cum bucket, others pain and loss is your gain.

    Fuck off!!!



  18. 18

    Oh that breaks my heart :( I feel so sad for Betty. It must be frightening, too, to be 88 years old and to be the only one left of that circle. I can't imagine what she's feeling right now. I just want to give her a big hug. I've been on the verge of tears since this news hit, and this may break the threshhold. RIP Rue McClanahan, a classy Southern belle.

    i'm a fairy !! guesss what I've been up too? misspeling wdors and , yes copy and payste all day!!!

    Re: BeaunycBECAUSE SHE TRULY DOESN'T GIVE A FUKK. NOW SHE CAN BRAG ABOUT BEING THE LAST-STANDING GOLDEN GIRL. EVEN IF SHE JOKINGLY MADE THAT STATEMENT (02/02/10 — LOOK IT UP UNDER THE OLD BETTY WHITE ARCHIVES ON THIS SIT), IT WAS/IS VERY TASTELESS. I HOPE SOME REPORTER DIGS UP THAT QUOTE AND THROWS IT UP IN HER FACE. LET'S SEE HOW FUNNY SHE FINDS IT NOW.



  21. 21

    Sad. Loved her !



  22. 22

    May rue rest in peace. She was definitely a tv icon. This year has been death magnets for celebrity and 5 listers. Why



  23. 23

    Re: Andy27 – Are you retarded? that's her sense of humor. everybody laughed about it, including rue. It's sad that rue died, but god, they were good friends. people make jokes that would seem terrible or rude out of context, but when it's between friends it's a whole nother story. Women do this all the time, probably far more than men do.



  24. 24

    Yup I remember that quote by Betty to Rue a few months back. I didn't find it amusing at all even if it was between good ole friends. But I guess Rue didn't seem to mind and that's what matters. RIP Rue.



  25. 25

    Re: Andy27 – You are a fucking moron. That was an a personal joke, and Rue knew it!



  26. 26

    Gosh im so sad, rose is the only one left, i wonder if the other 3 ever got their heads frozen haha. I feel like doing a golden girls marathon today. :(



  27. 27

    hated the golden girls, loved the cast. would have loved to throw a few back with those gals in real life I bet they were hysterical.



  28. 28

    This makes me want to cry.



  29. 29

    R.I.P. Rue! :(

  32. 32
