"Golden Girls" Star Bea Arthur Dies at 86

Posted: April 26th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Golden Girls" Star Bea Arthur Dies at 86Submit Comment
Beatrice Arthur, the actress whose razor-sharp delivery of comedy lines made her a TV star in the hit shows "Maude" and "The Golden Girls" and who won a Tony Award for the musical "Mame," died Saturday. She was 86.

Arthur died peacefully at her Los Angeles home with her family at her side, family spokesman Dan Watt said. She had cancer, Watt said, declining to give further details.

Arthur first appeared in the landmark comedy series "All in the Family" as Edith Bunker's loudly outspoken, liberal cousin, Maude Finley. She proved a perfect foil for blue-collar bigot Archie Bunker (Carroll O'Connor), and their blistering exchanges were so entertaining that producer Norman Lear fashioned Arthur's own series.

"Maude" scored with television viewers immediately on its CBS debut in September 1972, and Arthur won an Emmy Award for the role in 1977.

"Golden Girls" (1985-1992) was another groundbreaking comedy, finding surprising success in a television market increasingly skewed toward a younger, product-buying audience. The series concerned three retirees Arthur, Betty White and Rue McClanahan and the mother of Arthur's character, Estelle Getty, who lived together in a Miami apartment.

In 1992, Arthur announced she was leaving "Golden Girls." The three other stars returned in "The Golden Palace," but it lasted only one season.

In recent years, Arthur made guest appearances on shows including "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "Malcolm in the Middle." She was chairwoman of the Art Attack Foundation, a non-profit performing arts scholarship organization.

Arthur is survived by her sons and two granddaughters.

Great Actress, awesome comedian and a lovely woman. She lived a very full life and brought laughter and tears to many TV and movie lovers like myself. I pray for the repose of her soul and grieve with her family and friends for their, no, OUR loss..

...and that gets her plumbing working...how? You get her to fit on a warming plate...how? Ranger...sigh...nevermind. You've been sent to suck the joy and laughter out of everyone's slightly humorous phrases. My horse is dead- want to beat it? jesus man.

Mmmmm... dead horse - bigger hot plate please.

At least when they're dead, they're not chatty after you plug-em, they don't hog the sheets, and aren't so bitchy in the morning (like yourself - f*ckhead).

And 'slightly' humorous is correct.
