Rue McClanahan Hospitalized


Golden Girls star Rue McClanahan, best known for her Emmy Award-winning role as Southern belle Blanche Devereaux, was hospitalized this week for heart bypass surgery. The actress was scheduled to appear at Golden: A Gala Tribute on November 14, an event in her honor that has since been canceled. McClanahan released the following statement from her New York hospital room: "My darlings, I'm just devastated that I am going to have to miss my own tribute at the Castro Theatre. Unfortunately, my doctor has laid down the law, and I'm currently having some maintenance on the old ticker. Trust me, I'd much rather be in San Francisco having fun and being adored by all of you." Get well soon, Rue. [Popeater]
