Rue McClanahan Dead at 76
Rue McClanahan died at 1AM on Thursday (June 2).
The 76-year-old Golden Girls star and Emmy-winning actress had a massive stroke on Monday and passed away on Thursday. But she “had her family with her,” her manager, Barbara Lawrence, tells People. “She went in peace.”
Betty tells ET, “Rue was a close and dear friend. I treasure our relationship. It hurts more than I ever thought it would, if that’s even possible.”
Thank you for being a friend, Rue. RIP!
