Fond Farewell to a Real Golden Girl

Estelle Getty died around 5:30 this morning in her Hollywood home. Getty had been suffering from advanced dementia for some time. Estelle will be best known world wide for her role as Sophia Petrillo, the spunky mother of Dorothy Zbornak on the hit series Golden Girls which followed up with the spinoff of Golden Palace which also starred Getty as Sophia. She was by far the most memorable character on the show with her burning one liners, her Sicily stories that always started with the memorable "picture it", and of course the fact that she never went anywhere without her beaded purse. Keep Estelle's spirit alive and don't forget to catch your favorite reruns on Lifetime!
