Funny how she says that neither she nor Eddie drinks. From what's been said since, Eddie did little else.

An IV drip isn't technically drinking.

Yes Babalu, that sounded disingenuous to me.

She and Eddie were having a lot of problems at the time (per her book) and it seems like she was just trying to put a good face on things.

She said it was her favorite character, the one she was waiting for and Barbara Cooper wasn't as strong as she was. (paraphrasing here). The poor little thing had to wait until she was 30 to get that series.

As for the show, well if you blink you missed it and I blinked.

I did like her very much in "Cafe Americain". The producers wanted Rue McLanahan as her costar and threw a lot of money at her to take the part after The Golden Girls ended. In Rue's memoir she was very dismissive of the idea of playing second fiddle to Valerie Bertinelli and said that despite the amount of money they were willing to pay her it was beneath her.

I love Rue but I thought she came off acting very snooty about the whole thing. The irony is years later Val and Betty White had a huge hit in "Hot in Cleveland" so there was at least one Golden Girl who recognized Val and her comedic gifts.

I'm sure she said it (Sydney) was her favorite character because she was promoting it at the time. Cafe Americain was widely panned and she was panned for not putting much of an effort into it. She pretty much said that she took the show because she could work 9-5, say her lines, and leave. It was the lowest rated show on TV and there wasn't much to it. The only interested I ever had in either show was looking at her. Hot in Cleveland too. I would tape them and fast forward to her.

Maybe in Rue's defense, she had good thing on GG and didn't want to blow it. Can't really blame her there. Go with the sure thing.

Go to 9 minutes 20 second for Rue's take on the situation...she was not impressed with Valerie's comedic talent but admitted she was beautiful.

This whole interview is kind of fun, Rue is very opinionated and dismissive at the same time about her experiences in the TV industry. She did not like Dabney Coleman, that is for sure. Or the producers of Mama's Family. Or most of the projects the interviewer asked her about. You would think she would be grateful for all the opportunities she had in the industry but she seemed kind of bored with most of them. Not a schmoozer, that's for sure...
