The Inspiration Board: Blanche Devereaux

News of Rue McClanahan’s stroke — get well soon, Rue! — got me thinking about her “Golden Girls” character. Blanche Devereaux was by far my favorite roommate on the hit show because she had a sexy spunk that her golden years couldn’t temper.

    Five Dating Tips From Dorothy Zbornak

    I used to dog sit for two of the cutest pups in the whole world.Their owners gave me strict instructions to always leave the TV on, set to Lifetime, whenever I left them alone. Without fail, when I’d come back, I’d find the dogs lying on the rug together, holding paws and watching the “Golden Girls.” Aww!
