Death! Lies! Realityshowtape!

Alas and alack the day!  One of the two remaining Golden Girls, Rue McClanahan, has died.  We here at Square Eyes are heartbroken that Blanche Devereaux has gone to the big lanai in the sky, leaving only Betty White to represent the feisty foursome.  Though Ms. McClanahan had a long and storied stage, television and film career, it was her iconic role on the hit show for which she is best remembered.  Let’s take a look back (through the tears!) at some of Blanche’s best moments:

Everyone knows celebrities die in threes (protect yourself, Betty White!  Surround yourself with soldiers, doctors and angels, and load up on cheesecake and lemonade!), and with Art Linkletter, Gary Coleman (whose wife was really his ex-wife and may have killed him!  Sordid!) and Dennis Hopper all going last week, perhaps this week it’ll be three women?  My money is on Zsa Zsa Gabor and Lindsay Lohan.  Or perhaps Amy Winehouse (she’s been looking rough again lately—actually, she always looks rough).  Maybe Angela Lansbury, just because she hasn’t really been in the news lately.

Did you hear, gentle readers?  Heidi filed for divorce from Spencer Flesh-colored Beard Pratt!  Kray-zay!  But wait, but wait.  It was an entirely scripted pack of lies.  Lies!  What?! I know, right?!  See, Heidi is moving out to live with her BFF Jen Bunney (yes, that’s her real name) to think about her marriage and try to focus on her acting career.  No, not porn.  Acting.  Not porn!  Acting!  She’s an ACTOR, destined for greatness!  Haven’t you seen The Hills?  Jeez.  You’d think she was some sort of reality show famewhore or something.

Anyway. Spencer’s production company is producing it. And it’s called The Heidi Show.

What a weird, crazy couple of weeks it’s been! Soothe your soul with some So You Think You Can Dance tonight, and Friday Night Lights tomorrow!

Betty White Hosting SNL? Almost There!

Posted by ERIN in Saturday Night Live, The Golden Girls

February 22nd, 2010, 02:45 PM

betty whiteWhat began as a grassroots campaign on Facebook to get America’s sweetheart, Betty White, a gig as a Saturday Night Live host is rumored to be a success! broke the exclusive that the 88 year-old Golden Girl is now being seriously considered to host along with comedic broads from SNL’s past. The names being thrown around include Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Molly Shannon - hey-yooooo!

This season of SNL has been a frigid mess, so maybe a fellowship of funny females would beat some life into the late-night comedy sketch series. Picture it! A Sarah Palin (Fey) vs. Betty White skit, or maybe the return of Mary Katherine Gallagher (Shannon) and White as an equally eccentric nun. The possibilities are endless.

I’ll leave you with the most appropriate Golden Girls clip for this news. Remember when Rose (White) was about to undergo surgery and had an anesthesia-induced conversation with her daughter? No?

Click below and be sure to listen to her delivery of, “Live from New York - it’s Saturday Night!” at the 0:47 time mark. This lady was born to host SNL.

Warning: this is not for the faint of heart. Now, I’m not saying I condone the following actions or endorse this video in any way, I just feel as though it is my duty to post any Golden Girls updates that cross my path.

With that disclaimer, here goes nothing:

Gross, right?  Some dude painted The Golden Girls on his face and then strategically wiggled his face around to the tune of the theme song.  Was this worth your time?  Probably not.

So I was all SNOOZE scrolling through a big batch of ‘For Your Consideration’ posters on, when my eyeballs encountered this gem and did a major BOING:

The Proposal FYC Poster: Betty White

If it’s wrong, why does it feel so right?

Golden Girl Betty White’s FYC poster should be printed on a t-shirt and worn by people everywhere.  Have you ever seen something so incredible?

Golden Bells with Golden Girl Betty White

Golden Girl alert!  What holiday season is complete without a video of living legend Betty White dressed as Santa?

Here’s Ms. White on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, mouthing off:

Charming as ever!  I know it’s cheap, but I can’t help but find old ladies acting edgy hilarious.  Could you picture Rose Nyland on The Golden Girls shooting off at the mouth like that?   NOPE!

Golden Girl Rue McClanahan Cancels SF Appearance

Posted by KAT in The Golden Girls

November 5th, 2009, 12:42 PM

The Golden Girls: Blanche DevereauxOh noes!  Blanche Devereaux isn’t feeling so well!

Golden Girls alum Rue McClanahan had to cancel her November 14th appearance at the Castro Theatre right here in San Francisco due to heart problems!

The appearance was all part of a tribute to the actress, with a full on-stage interview and partial proceeds going to the AIDS Housing Alliance.

But no more!  Here’s what poor Rue had to say about her cancellation:

“My darlings, I’m just devastated that I am going to have to miss my own tribute at the Castro Theatre.  Unfortunately, my doctor has laid down the law, and I’m currently having some maintenance on the old ticker. Trust me, I’d much rather be in San Francisco having fun and being adored by all of you.”

Aw.  Get better quick, Miss Blanche Devereaux!  I just couldn’t bear the thought of another Golden Girls casualty anytime soon.

Golden Girl Tat Alert: Forearm Emblazoned With Bea

THIS JUST IN: Somebody got a Bea Arthur tattoo!

Bea Arthur tattoo

We here at Square Eyes HQ are devoted to giving you the latest breaking Golden Girls news, especially when someone gets inked with an image of the fantastic foursome. This particular forearm/Bea homage belongs to comedian Eliot Glazer, who tweeted the image of his new tat yesterday morning.

Well played, Glazer!  Though I must say, I’m still partial to the “Stay Golden” laptop.

Post-script: It was revealed recently that Bea Arthur left $300,000 in her will to the Ali Forney Center in New York, which houses homeless LGBT kids.  They were able to build another property wtih her generous donation.  Truly a lady worthy of being homage’d.

30 Rock: Betty WhiteZOMG!  This week just keeps getting better and better…

Living legend, national treasure, and Square Eyes favorite Betty White, formerly of The Golden Girls, has signed on for a guest spot on other Square Eyes favorite, 30 Rock!

Ms.White will reportedly be playing herself on the award-winning NBC comedy series.

And this is all from the mouth of Tina Fey herself!

Fey reportedly also wants to get Justin Timberlake in for a guest role.  But enough about him!  Back to Betty!

Does anyone else smell Emmy for Betty White for her future role on 30 Rock? She’s been hitting the guest spot circuit pretty hard lately, even earning an Emmy nomination for “Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series” for My Name is Earl this year. Betty on 30 Rock will surely be nothing short of unbeatable.

Betty White FTW!  Get excited, people!

Coming Soon: The Golden Chicas!

The Golden Girls

ZOMG!  Could this day get any better?

Jezebel’s got the scoop:

According to a press release, Disney’s announced “a Latin American reversioning” of The Golden Girls, Los Años Dorados. It’s tailored for a Hispanic audience with actresses from Mexico, Colombia and Cuba; set in Miami and filming in Venezuela. ¿Cheesecake, anyone?

Oh HELL YES!  I haven’t been this excited since the Turkish Golden Girls were announced.

What do you think?  Blanche Deveraux, Dorothy Zbornak, Rose Nyland, and Sophia Petrillo recast with a group of senior Latinas?  Muy bien!

I hope the “reversioning” includes infusing The Golden Chicas with some local flavor.  Flan instead of cheesecake?

If The Golden Girls Were on Twitter…

The folks over at Pophangover?  Kindred spirits!  Take a look at this amazing Golden Girls-inspired Twitter feed they’ve slapped together:

Pophangover: If the Golden Girls were on Twitter...

Chortle!  I could read these all day!  I wish Dorothy would @reply Sophia with a straight-up “Maaaa!” on that most recent tweet (made from the lanai, mind you!).  I’d RT that.

But…. no cheesecake?
