Anyone else find that whole story about her having a blood problem at age 16 and so went to boarding school a bit ridiculous and unbelievable?? I think first you would know the name of the malady you've been diagnosed with, second, I highly doubt that's the preferred method of treatment for blood not clotting- boarding school, strange. Also that it would just work itself out eventually and then that's it, never have to think about this malady again. Just fishy as hell

Makes me so disappointed to hear the producer saying he shouldn't have done golden palace, like it was some colossal failure because I love that show, I wish that it would have gone on because it was awesome!

I always wanted to know why she never claimed being in the marines. Wonder why she was ashamed of it?

If they did a live action Archer, she would fit the role of Mallory!

Such an amazing performer. I'm so glad I got to see her one-women show live when she came to Columbus, Ohio. It was spectacular.

I adore everything about her, especially how down to earth she is. She was a treasure more than she'd ever know.

Damn I love her. I love her on Golden Girls, Maude and Mame. Aside from her witty characters, I admire her so much as a person for every reason you can think of admiring someone.

I think a lot of people confuse Bea Arthur with Dorothy as if they were one and the same

Bea Arthur was and always will be a true American treasure. I looked at her son Matthew's Facebook page and saw a picture of his mom (Bea) and her grandkids. Who knows maybe one of them will grow up to be the next Bea Arthur and make their grandma proud! Love you Bea! 💜💛💜💛

Why does every retrospect of the Golden Girls use that same line about "in what Blanche, Dog years?" I see that every time and it's no where near the funniest of some of her scenes on that show.

+Natalie Panaro Stack Mine is when mrs claxton dies and rose is at the table and says to dorothy, "why do people die?" And then bea says " I dont even know why fools fall in love". The delivery was just perfect

mark40511 one of the best was when rose asked why does she need a kidney and dorothy says to " feed the cat rose!!!" Lol

Screw anyone who dared say that Bea was not beautiful or did not have the right "bone structure"! I have always thought she was gorgeous!

According to Elaine Stritch in her "At Liberty" show, she auditioned for the role of Dorothy but did not get along w/ Golden Girls creator Susan Harris. Look for it on here -- it's a hilarious story =^)

"Bone structure!"

I've loved her since I was a child. I even named my first car after her. A 96' Honda, it was temperamental, had been there done that, and was loyal even after the countless times people had tried to steal her.
