The lovely Rue McClanahan passed away as a result of a stroke early today. Most of us know her as Blanche Devereaux, the saucy man crazed scene stealer from The Golden Girls.
As Blanche, Rue gave off such a air of confidence and style that you couldn't help but fall in love with her. She was loud and so much fun to watch every week. She is the main reason I can't turn the show off when I catch it syndication as I'm channel surfing.
Rue was a staunch animal rights activist and was one of the first celebrities to become a spokesperson for PETA.
Whether in her personal life or professional, Rue was a true star who shall be missed by us all.
