Anyone who knows me, is aware that I absolutely LOVE the Golden Girls. I watched them every week after the Cosby Show years ago when the show first aired, and I still watch the reruns till this day. I am even collecting all of the seasons on DVD.
The Golden Girls can still make you laugh with their timeless wit and humor. I have sat and watched all of the episodes for hours on end, holding my sides while I laughed and laughed. That show is a true classic.
Estelle Getty, a.k.a., Sophia Petrillo, was a star whose mouth made her one of my favorite characters ever on television. Her one-liners were hilarious. She will truly be missed.
Sophia Petrillo had her moments with various characters on the show, but one of the funniest and most memorable "Sophia" episodes for me was, "Yes, We Have No Havanas." The episode involved a Cuban gentleman that Sophia and Blanche were both dating. When Blanche found out that Sophia was also seeing her beau, they agreed to share him. Watch the very funny clip below:
Estelle Getty, a.k.a., Sophia Petrillo, thank you for
being a friend. You were truly a Platinum Golden Girl. :-)
