Question Which Golden Girl Would Katherine Helmond Have Been?

The creators and producers of Golden Girls and Katherine Helmond had previously worked together on Soap.

After Soap was cancelled, Katherine Helmond bounced around doing episodics before getting Who's The Boss? in 1984.

Golden Girls producers tested every single actress over 50 for the four parts on the show. If Katherine Helmond DID NOT get Who's The Boss?, you can bet she would have been cast on Golden Girls because the producers and creator of the show held Katherine Helmond in high regard.

Either Rose since apparently Jessica was more like her (I've seen only one episode of Soap), or Blanche, as she obviously could have played her well (sharing some similarities with Mona).

Rose, but I base that mostly on her hilarious portrayal of Jessica Tate.

Definitely Rose or Blanche. Just not sure which one.
