Golden Girls Take Over The TV Land Awards

June 9th, 2008 // 17 Comments

This is a moment….I can’t even speak. These women are divas, feminists, pioneers. Their sparkling repartee and glamorous charisma brought us all through some dark years. They are the Golden Girls and if they taught us anything, they taught us that old people still like to f*ck. God, I don’t care if Bea Arthur’s face is caving in on itself, she’s 80,000 years old and earned the right. She reminds me of Ri-Ri Harvey’s mom Claire. Sassy, snarky and ready to snap on a bitch! I miss you, Nana! And I will never forget when you took off out of Lane Bryant with an entire rack of lingerie attached to your Lark and tried to make out like it was an accident. Wink, wink, girl!

Some other hoes showed up for the TV Land Awards but all I see is gold. Well, there were a couple of other gems. Maniac Roseanne was in the hizzy, and Mary-Ann from Gilligan’s Island (Dawn Wells) explained her marijuana bust from last October.

“None of it was true,” Wells said. “I was weaving on the road and trying to find the (car) heater. (Police) never gave me a breathalyzer test, but they asked to search my car and found three (marijuana) roaches. My friend had been driving my car earlier in the day. He admitted to it all.”

She also said that “the story mushroomed, and I lost out on a Girl Scout speaking engagement.” Bitch, you were high as a kite on your three hour weed tour. But I think the Girl Scouts of America could use a dose of reality and perhaps having some stoned pigeon old school TV star teaching them how to roll a blunt could be it. It ain’t all about the cookies, ladies.

    it kind of makes me sad to see betty white looking so frail.

    bea arthur too, now that i look at the thumbnail fullsized.

    i used to watch this show EVERY stinkin’ day in the summertime with my granny. i hated it. now, i wish i could do it just once more.

    This is what Sex and the City looks like in 20 years. They’re even wearing the same color suits. This is fantastic. And yes, a little sad to see them looking their age.

    Sex and the City would be lucky to look this good now. At least the Golden Girls have a reason to look elderly…they ARE elderly. SATC has no excuse.

  5. The picture of Roseanne shows her to look actually really really good…she is growing in her natural grey it seems, which is a beautiful steel colour and I think she’s going to actually look amazing when its all grown out…I’m not a fan of Roseanne but of anyone who chooses to stop dying their freak’in hair….

    Wow the Golden Girls look great all considering. I read about them at celebrityprayerlist.com too.

  7. Applespice

    Wow- I love me some Golden Girls. I still watch the re-runs. My friends and I try to pick who we’ll be like…

    I wish Estelle’s dementia wasn’t so bad. I think seeing the four of them together again would be fabulous.

    (And since on one has gotten to it (except the prayer list one): “Wow- Bea looks hot! I saw her on datingrich.com. Go check it out to see… BLAH BLAH BLAH”)

    Lighten up on The Golden Girls, will ya, huh? They’re still here, let’s be thankful for that. I think Bea looks great considering she’s 86 now.
    As for ‘nancy’, come on, girl. Not everyone looks good with gray hair. There is nothing wrong with hair dye. It is simply a grooming choice.

  9. Demetria Cavallari Clyde

    I would watch this show with my nana everyday when I would visit her as a kid. I constantly watch the show now and laugh my ass off. It is difficult to see them aging because in my mind they are still young. I am glad to know they are still alive and looking great. The Golden Girls are one of a kind.

  10. Golden Girl FAN

    I hate seeing the 3 strong women look so down. i mean come on they have done so much for everybody by making us laugh to making us cry on the last episode but whatever they did they did together and now seeing them like this makes me hurt. but you know what they will always be the sexy and vibrant Golden Girls that we all know and love!

    THE GOLDEN GIRLS IS MY FAVORITE SHOW OF ALL TIMES. THEY ARE ROLE MODELS FOR WOMEN OF ALL AGES. THEY ALWAYS BE IN MY HEART. GOOD BYE TO SOFIA,SHE WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBER.

    I am very glad & proud. Please respond me quickly.

    Does anyone know why Bea Arthur always wore such loose fitting, almost baggy, clothes? She was not over weight but seemed to be hiding her body. I love this show….I watched it live in the 80′s and still watch all the reruns and will as long as some smart channel descides to show them. And even after all this time I still laugh at every one.

  15. Graeme

    These four women literally shaped the course of my life and brought me untold joy and laughter for 24 years and counting. I thank them for all the work they put into making Golden Girls a phenomenon. I am the proud owner of all seven seasons on dvd, and consider Bea, Rue, Betty and Estelle angels on Earth. I hope Sophia found her white light and her beloved Sal waiting for her in Heaven.

    They deserved to get the awards from TV Land from last year. Betty White is my favorite as she was played Rose Nylund on the Golden Girls and I love Rose’s St. Olaf stories. I missed Estelle and Bea. I am still watching the rerun of the Golden Girls and I still do love it.
