Dorothy, Rose, Blanche, and Sophia in doll form
I’m constantly surprised by what constitutes “news” in the world of The Golden Girls. Recently, the creation of action figures debuting at New York’s Comic Con was a super-big deal. A big deal to everyone except Betty White, that is.
Ms. White wasn’t readily available for comment. “There’s nothing really for Betty to say,” said Jeff Witjas, a representative for the actress. “She has not seen the dolls.”
Picture it: Off-Broadway, 2016
In other Miami Nice super-big deal news, there’s a Golden Girls puppet show in a limited run on Broadway, er, off-Broadway. I heard about the show and was immediately annoyed. I’m a bit of a purist, and, well, how do I say this? I don’t like puppets. However, for the love of the Girls, I forced myself to watch the trailer, and it’s lovely. They had me at Dorothy biting her knuckles. Kudos, Jonathan Rockefeller. Well done.
That Spelling show
Two things of note in the world of Spelling: Spelling Manor is up for grabs (all 123 rooms of it), and Tori is pregnant with her fifth child. I HOPE People paid her substantially for the story because homegirl’s in debt. BFF Jennie Garth was obviously around with congrats. I’m still sad their mystery show didn’t work out, but I’m more sad that they didn’t hire better writers for it. WOOF.
