rue mcclanahan: died!

June 3, 2010

Golden Girl Rue McClanahan has died at the age of 76.

“She passed away at 1 a.m. this morning,” her manager, Barbara Lawrence, tells PEOPLE. “She had a massive stroke.”

McClanahan, who played man-happy Blanche Devereaux on the still-popular ’80s sitcom Golden Girls, had suffered a minor stroke earlier this year while recovering from bypass surgery. Lawrence also said that at the time of her death Thursday, McClanahan “had her family with her. She went in peace.”


All these celebrities keep dying. How sad! I loved her on Golden Girls. That accent killed me. Now there’s only one Golden Girl left, who happens to be the hugely popular Betty White. Anyway, it’s good to know that Rue McClanahan died with her family, peacefully.
