She walked to the car clutching the man’s arm less than a year after she was rushed to a doctor’s office after a scary collapse. She was wearing blue pants and a white shirt as she slowly made her way to the vehicle.

A source told Radar in late 2017 that the Golden Girls star was battling early signs of dementia. Her rep denied that she had an emergency or was overworked.
