In Memoriam: Rue McClanahan

Rue McClanahan arrives for Bea Arthur Memorial Service in New York

The Emmy-Award winning Oklahoma native died at age 76 at New York Presbyterian Hospital today, following a stroke.  Here's part of a recent interview in which she discusses "Golden Girls," and her fellow cast members.  If you can believe it, the producers originally wanted Betty White to play Blanche, and Rue to play Rose.

Skip past the annoying buzz to the :20 second mark.

I really liked her and was sad when I heard the news. R.I.P.

Me too, she had that Southern belle thing down pat.
