This week, it was announced that Rue McClanahan is recovering from a stroke.
After appearing in Dallas in September (which is when the above picture was taken), McClanahan had bypass surgery in November. While recovering, she suffered a stroke. The clot was successfully removed from her brain and she spent two weeks in intensive care. The stroke was considered mild and she is expected to recover.
We love you Rue. The 30 minute interview I did with her lasted two hours and we had a ball talking. We have the same favorite “Golden Girls” episode and giggled like school girls reciting favorite lines back and forth to each other.
Here’s a link to that interview. And Rue, get well. We love you here at the Dallas Voice.
