Golden Girls Star Rue McClanahan Passes Away

Golden Girls star Rue McClanahan has passed away. She was 76.

"She passed away at 1 a.m. this morning," her manager, Barbara Lawrence said. "She had a massive stroke."

Betty White to Host the Oscars?

McClanahan had also suffered a minor stroke earlier this year while she was recovering from a bypass surgery.

If you guys recall, McClanahan played Blanche Devereaux in the '80s sitcom Golden Girls. The very popular show was in syndication from 1985 to 1992.

Betty White, 88, is currently the only Golden Girl alive. Beatrice Arthur died from cancer last year and Estelle Getty died in 2008.

RIP Rue!
