RIP Rue McClanahan

Before SATC and all those other raunchy rip-offs, there was the O. G. Golden Girl Blanche Devereaux — played by Rue McClanahan — kept it classy and held it down for the cougars of the world. In the words of Sinead: Nothing Compares 2 U.

And Rue walked the talk. In real life, she was married six – six!! – times.  As compassionate as she was licentious, she was also an animal welfare advocate and one of the first celebrity supporters of PETA. Rue, hope you’re sharing a laugh and causing a scandal with Bea and Estelle in your retirement resort in the sky.
