GOLDEN GIRL ESTELLE GETTY: GOOD NIGHT SOPHIA!
Gay friendly Estelle Getty of “The Golden Girls” died today after a long battle with Alzheimer’s. We used to live in the same building and tiny Estelle seemed waist-high in the elevator. She was always friendly and in the company of sociable gay men. Keep in mind that Estelle not only starred on one of the biggest hit shows of the 80′s, but this show undoubtedly inspired Candace Bushnell, the creator of “Sex & the City,” whether she admits it or not. We can already imagine Sarah Jessica Parker and the girls getting back together in twenty years for “Golden Girls in the City.”
