I was very upset to read on yahoo new the other day. This show is old from the 90's but ever since I was little to this day this lady makes me laugh. She was a great actress and comedian. She was my favorite golden girl. Did you know that she auditioned for the part 3 times. Only on the 3rd try did she get the part. It was because she didn't look old enough. When I was little I didn't know it was a wig and all that makeup making her look old. Do you like the show and who is your favorite golden girl

Very funny woman. Golden Girls would not have been funny without her. Didn't she also do the "Where's the Beef" commercials?

I loved the Golden Girls and I am only 34! My Grandma and I used to watch it together. We would laugh so hard....now I'm a littled bored by it when I tune in, but probably because I think I saw every episode at least twice. But I still have warm feelings about the show simply because my wonderful late Grandma and I shared it together. Dorothy was my favorite but Sophia was a close second.
