Golden Girls vamp and longtime Bea Arthur-costar Rue McClanahan has released an exclusive statement to RadarOnline regarding the death of her dear friend.
“Thirty-seven years ago she showed me how to be very brave in comedy.
I’ll miss that courage and I’ll miss that voice,” she says.
Arthur passed away this morning due to complications from cancer in her Brentwood, Ca. home.
McClanahan and Arthur cated side by side for seven years on Golden Girls, with Betty White and Estelle Getty.
