Rue McClanahan

Friday, June 04, 2010

Rue McClanahan was a veteran of the stage, but she will always be remembered for her role as Blanche Devereaux, the man-devouring Southern belle in the hit television series, “The Golden Girls.”  She died just recently at the age of 76. 

She came to speak with Leonard in 2007 for her autobiography, called “My First Five Husbands… and the Ones Who Got Away.”   She is survived by a sixth husband, Morrow Wilson.
