I know. When she was doing interviews before SNL, she mentioned that she just talked to Rue and she sounded so excited that Rue seemed to be doing well.

Scary how things can happen so suddenly. A fan received an autograph back from Rue less than a month ago as well.

The Golden Girls fell like dominoes in recent years:
Estelle Getty-2008
Beatrice Arthur-2009
Rue McClanahan-2010
Berry White-2011? (I hope that doesn't happen. She's got way too many current endeavours right now)

Default Betty White Remembers Rue McClanahan

Betty White Remembers who dear friend Rue McClanahan.

http://blog.zap2it.com/thedishrag/20...ar-friend.html
In a statement to Zap2it, Betty White, who co-starred with Rue McClanahan for seven seasons on "The Golden Girls," says of Rue's passing: "Rue was a close and dear friend. I treasured our relationship. It hurts more than I even thought it would, if that's possible."

Rue McClanahan passed away in the early morning hours on Thursday, June 3 after suffering a massive stroke. She had previously suffered a minor stroke earlier this year after undergoing bypass surgery. She was 76.

The Zap2it team is enormous fans of Rue's work and so saddened for her friends, family, fans and Betty White, the last remaining regular cast member of "The Golden Girls." Fellow "Golden Girls" Estelle Getty and Bea Arthur passed away in 2008 and 2009, respectively. We have posted a tribute to Rue's work on the show.

RIP, Rue McClanahan and our condolences to everyone who loved you. Thanks for the laughter.

Betty White, Leslie Jordan, and friends remember Rue McClanahan
by Kate Ward
Categories: In Memoriam, News
Friends and co-stars of Rue McClanahan have begun pouring out their tributes to the late actress. Read below to see what some of the actress’ best pals had to say about the Golden Girl.
Betty White, who co-starred with McClanahan on Golden Girls: “Rue was a close and dear friend. I treasured our relationship. It hurts more than I even thought it would, if that’s possible.”
Paul Junger Witt, executive producer of Golden Girls: “When a series is on as long as we were, with the same unit of people who have worked together for seven to eight years, you do become a family. A loss becomes very personal. It’s a very sad day. When shows come to an end, that’s a period of mourning. But to lose the ladies that we have — we still have Betty, thank God, who’s a treasure. But it’s a real loss. The afterlife of the show has been so extraordinary. Women are still visiting [the show] in their living rooms all over the world. Watching the four of those ladies work was certainly the highlight of those years. Every day to get to watch these four consummate performers, there’s nothing like it. She was an intuitively funny person. She was a force of joy for all of us. And we miss her already.”
Dustin Hoffman, who starred alongside McClanahan in the Broadway production of Jimmy Shine: “I have fond memories of working with Rue on Broadway in the ’60s, and I am saddened by her passing. My thoughts are with her family and friends.”
Leslie Jordan, who co-starred with McClanahan on Logo’s Sordid Lives: The Series: “I got really close in the twilight of Rue’s life. She’s one of the true Southern ladies. She showed up in Shreveport, La. to play my mother on the series Sordid Lives with a portable sewing machine, and she wanted to make her own hats. She just said, ‘I just think that this lady would have made beautiful Sunday hats.’ We got so close, though, Rue and I. We did a tour of comedy from the show. She was in a wheelchair, I think after a hip replacement, and rather than stand-up comedy, she called it sit-down comedy. Honey, we wheeled her out [and] I thought we were going to have to get the hook! We said, ‘You have 20 minutes.’ Well, she had that audience on the palm of her hands. From the moment they wheeled her out. I thought, how are we going to get her off the stage? It was watching a master at her craft. She was Southern, and a storyteller, and she had a story for any occasion. Oh, she was something. One night, she came to me and said, ‘I just had a fight with my husband.’ I said, ‘About what, Rue?’ She was very upset, she said, ‘Well, we were watching Everyone Loves Raymond, and my husband said that he liked Patricia Heaton’s acting. And I said, yes, she’s a good actress, but her posture is terrible. And my husband said, “Oh, you always have something to say.” But I was just commenting that a lady should have good posture!’ So she’s fighting with her husband about Patricia Heaton’s posture. And I thought, that’s Rue right there. There are ways we handle ourselves. You can be a wonderful actress, but you have to have good posture as well. She was a lady, but she was a bawdy lady too. She could get down with the best of us. She was filthy. She will really be missed.”
Beth Grant, who starred with McClanahan in Sordid Lives: The Series, and Golden Girls: “I loved her so much. I did a play called Picnic in Los Angeles with her [years ago], and she played the mom. It was my first big break. And she was so kind to me. And we did an out-of-town try-out in Denver, and I had told her that when I was a little girl, I had always wanted to go to Mardi Gras, because a lot of my friends had gone, and they had come back with these crystal beads, and how I always wanted those crystal beads. So opening night in Denver, she gave me the most gorgeous crystal beads that you have ever seen. I still have them. And she had forgotten all about it. When we did Sordid Lives, I reminded her. For her to bring that magic to it by remembering this silly little story I told, it was so special. It sounds so cliche, but she was the consummate professional. She had the best timing in the world, playing Blanche — as a southerner, believe me — to perfection. Her timing was so great. You could just feel if there was a funny moment coming on, she could send out a vibe to let you know to hold or to jump in. She could lead you to good timing as well. She was a comic genius. She really was. In every way. I miss her so much right now. She’s a magical person to me. I’m going to wear
