Well, we all know this is going to happen. The Golden Girls were in their fifties and sixties back in the eighties. But, didn't you feel like they will always we around? Like for some reason they will live 100 years and still be saucy, quick-mouthed hot older chicks calling each other sluts, whores and idiots? I'm never going to get that Golden Girls reunion.
It's sad, I remember an episode where all of Sophia's friends were dying and she was scared she would be the last one. The last two remaining Golden Girls must feel that way.
