Last-Minute Halloween: Golden Girls

Halloween is now less than a week away. As the peer pressure mounts and “carrying a bag of chips” starts to sound like a clever costume option, consider the wisdom of your elders: Miami’s most sprightly roommates, The Golden Girls. Whether they’re jitterbugging in gold lamé or gossiping about the lighter sides of death and sex, Dorothy, Blanche, Rose and Sophia are always up for midnight cheesecake. Now call up your ladyfriends, figure out who’s the Rose and don’t forget the dessert: it’s party time.

    I can't believe I never thought of this! I continuously watch all 7 seasons on DVD over and over again (only in chronological order of course). Love it! Maybe this year I'll be Dorothy, (instead of my usual Where's Waldo...also a super easy and fun costume)!

  • uncostumed

    uncostumed said 5 years ago

    Trivia Fact #1: Blanche/Rue McClanahan was originally cast to play Rose & Rose/Betty White was originally cast to play Blanche. The producers originally wanted Rue McClanahan to play a version of her naive Vivian Cavender character from "Maude" (1972) & Betty White to play a version of her man-hungry Sue Ann Nivens from "Mary Tyler Moore" (1970). They switched roles because they didn't want to be typecast. (Wow, Betty White as Blanche?) Trivia Fact #2: Dorthy/Bea Arthur is the only Golden Girl to have nude portraits painted of her by John Curin in 1991. Trivia Fact #3: Sophia/Estelle Getty is 15 months younger than her TV daughter Dorthy/Bea Arther. Trivia Fact #4: The number one selling semi-nude calendar for 2011 is one featuring none other than - you guessed it - Betty White. (If it featured any of the other Golden Girls it would just be wrong, as they've all passed.) Any balding guys willing to dress as Stan? BTW, Who remembers the spin off Empty Nest or the sequel Golden Palace (it had all the girls except for Dorthy/Bea Arthur)?

    I had the opportunity to spend an evening with Betty White (Rose) and meet her in person at a small, intimate event in support of Colorado Raptors/Birds of Prey. What a lovely, generous and sincere person! I think it would be a great tribute to "be" the Golden Girls for Halloween. Plan on suggesting this to my daughter and her friends/ room mates in SF.

I rent to roomates and just today put GG names on everybodys doors ,I'm blanch ...lol. even got a captial one cc with them on the front, fav esp. is the on where blanch comes out of her bedroom in a silk flowing robe saying to dorthy "i'm as nervous as a virgin at a prison rodeo" or the one where sophia says "" i live 80, 90 years i survive pneumonia a stroke and one night i'll belch and stable mable here will blow my head off" I could go on for days!!!

    At first I thought this was a slightly depressing feature, mainly because at 36 I don't think I'd need much to pass as a Golden girl, ha! Then I thought, when do you get the excuse to wear gold lame (and not have to look like a Charlie's Angel) and carry around a cheesecake? THAT is a happy thought.
