Ross Mathews wondered the same thing on “Hello Ross,” so he presented us with this spoof in which Dorothy (played by Jackie Beat) says some choice words to Hannah Horvath that we’ve all longed to say ourselves.

Yesterday, Julie sent me a link to this scale model of the house from “The Golden Girls,” I just immediately started crying with joy. It cost $175, but for that level of detail and the number of hours I would spend making my Dorothy paper doll shake her head at my Rose and Blanche paper dolls in the living room, and then serving tiny slices of cheesecake at the kitchen table while my Sophia doll told a funny story about her childhood in Sicily, it seemed like a total steal.

It’s National Cheesecake Day, according to the people who make up these kind of things.

As the fight for marriage equality reaches the Supreme Court this week, this video is a reminder that “The Golden Girls” were able to sum up the case for gay marriage in less than a minute. Where is Sophia Petrillo when we need her? [YouTube]
When flawless “Golden Girls” star Bea Arthur passed away, she left a bucket of money to the Ali Forney Center in New York City, a shelter for LGBTQ teenagers. Ali Forney was a drop-in day center for kids who were thrown out of their homes or ran away from home when their families would not accept their sexual orientation.

Hurricane Sandy destroyed the Ali Forney Center last week. Keep reading »
