Death Watch: Estelle Getty

Sadly, Estelle Getty has died at age of 84. Getty was best known for her role of Sophie on The Golden Girls. Even though Getty played the mother of one of the sitcom's geriatric characters, in real life she was about the same age or younger than her silver-haired cast mates. Apparently there was a lot of make up involved.

As a youngster I learned a great deal about sex from the watching The Golden Girls. Which is a really weird fact, and something I will try to never remember again.
