'Golden Girls' star Rue McClanahan suffered stroke last November

Posted on

The Golden Girls star Rue McClanahan had a minor stroke last November while recovering from heart bypass surgery, the actress’ rep confirmed Thursday to EW. McClanahan has been in the hospital since then, but is expected to be released in two weeks. Contrary to some reports, McClanahan has not been paralyzed or crippled. “She’s still very funny—It all came back,” her rep said. “I was just talking to her about how, when she gets out, she might want to have a camera crew meet her in her house and watch her walk and wave.” McClanahan won an Emmy in 1987 for playing Golden Girls‘ Blanche Devereaux.
