R.I.P. Estelle Getty
Golden Girls matriarch Estelle Getty, who played Sophia Petrillo on the show from 1985 to 1992—and for eternity in "Lifetime" reruns—has died at the age of 84.
Revel in her sassiness!:
Rose: Dorothy, you're the smart one, and Blanche, you're the sexy one, and Sophia, you're the old one, and I'm the nice one. Everybody always likes me.
Sophia: The old one isn't so crazy about you.
Her son had this to say: "She was loved throughout the world in six continents, and if they loved sitcoms in Antarctica she would have been loved on seven continents."
