Deciding who is the best Golden Girl… in order:
1. Betty White (Rose)- Obviously.
2. Estelle Getty (Sophia)- And not just a sympathy vote because she just died, but a nod to pure uncut sass.
3. Bea Arthur (Dorothy)- Because she originated the “handsome woman” persona, now adopted by Glenn Close, Hilary Clinton, and Kate Mulgrew.
4. Rue McLanahan (Blanche)- Quite clearly the weak link in the Golden chain. She puts too much sex in “60 and Sexy” for my taste.
