I was so sad when I heard about this. Estelle was really something special, and though her health had been failing for some time, I still hoped that this day wouldn't come anytime soon.

She always lit up the screen in whatever she played in. It was impossible to not watch and enjoy.

I will definitely miss her. :(

Rude. lol!

Actually, she was the first ‘Golden Girl’ to die. She was about as old as the rest of them, too. When she played that cantankerous old woman on GG, she was only in her 50's. She had a gray wig and everything.

I was never a big fan of "Golden Girls“ or ”Stop or my mom will shoot"… But it's sad when a ‘real-person’ type of celebrity dies. Probably because she had success so late in life was she so down-to-earth. I guess she had been suffering from dementia for a while. That always hard on a family. :(

Ah, well. Rest in piece.

Always sad to lose a memorable entertainer, but, alas, all people die. At least she had a full life and left her mark on the world.

She was old, to be sure, but I think they made her look a lot older than she was. When she was in “Stop or My Mom Will Shoot” she appeared younger (but still old!) than her character on GG who played Bea Arthur's mother.

i think it's funny that i'm in my twenties and i could tell you all about the golden girls.

has anyone else here seen that robot chicken sketch that mixed the golden girls with sex and the city? oh my god… i was laughing so hard…
you know why birds don't write their memoirs? because birds don't lead epic lives, that's why. who'd want to read what a bird does? nobody. that's who.

Tons of people die every year, including a fair amount of celebrities. Perhaps you just never noticed before.
