    Golden Girl Rue McClanahan has died at the age of 76.

    "She passed away at 1 a.m. this morning," her manager, Barbara Lawrence, tells PEOPLE. "She had a massive stroke."

    McClanahan, who played man-happy Blanche Devereaux on the still-popular '80s sitcom Golden Girls, had suffered a minor stroke earlier this year while recovering from bypass surgery. Lawrence adds that at the time of her death Thursday, McClanahan “had her family with her. She went in peace."

    That means they're all dead now. I just wish someone would bury the corpse of Betty White already . . . . .
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    Betty had more life in her on SNL than most of the regular cast.

    WHAT!!!! Betty White rules.
    I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad

    She was so good they had to bring in past SNL stars to back her up, like Tina Fey, Molly Shannon and Maya Rudolph (all of whom I think are funny, but not half as funny as two of the original SNL chicks-Jane Curtain and Gilda Radnor).

    I haven't been a regular SNL viewer since Will Farrell left. There are really only two funny casts in the history of the show-the original (although Bill Murray is funnier than Chevy), and the group with Phil Hartman, Jan Hooks, Dennis Miller, Dana Carvey, Mike Meyers, etc. The rest of the casts would have one or two funny people (like Eddie Murphy), and a bunch of people who weren't funny. Or, like Julia-Lewis Dreyfuss, weren't funny yet.

    Hate to hear about Blanch, may she rest in peace.

    Betty White is awesome!
    I loved her most recently in the movie The Proposal.

    Agree with everything you've said. Betty White is an amazing woman. I met her at a banquet for the Wolf Sanctuary in St Louis and talked to her for about a half hour. She's got more life in her than so many younger people. Policon is way wrong. :mad:

    I heard that Betty often tells jokes so raunchy they would make a sailor blush. Just another reason I think she's awesome.

    One thing about Rue dieing is it is a reminder to me of how old I have gotten since I watched the show 20 plus years ago.

    This is true. She was involved in one of those Comedy Central Roasts, I can't remember which one. Shatner maybe... or perhaps, Pam Anderson.
