She Was Golden
No doubt, you may have already read that actress, Estelle Getty, passed away recently. At 84, she had suffered from dementia, a disease that robs people of dignity and independence. I just wanted to pay a little tribute to a woman who made such a huge impact in television when she was already well into her fifties. Estelle proved that a woman can have a successful career in show business at any age, providing the right role comes along. In her case, she would play the mom of Beatrice Arthur, even though she and Beatrice were not that far apart in age. Estelle was able to create the illusion of a much older woman, but with such incredible humor that she became an icon. Although Estelle is no longer with us, she will always be a part of our lives through her role on the still popular "Golden Girls".
