$99 NOW $49.50Rue's Girl on a Bench T-Shirt
This casual 3/4-sleeve T-shirt of Rue’s was probably from some professional gig because the tag was cut out and there were half a dozen sequins hand sewn on the front. Usually Rue or a costumer on set would do something like that to make sure the tag didn’t stick out after a quick change, and to catch the lights and make something have a little extra pop. However, since we can’t find any photos of Rue wearing the piece in a production, and we have no idea what it was used in, we’re listing this shirt here in her closet. Rue’s girl-on-a-bench tee comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$175 NOW $87.50Rue's Juicer
Rue owned four juicers – the girl liked fresh juice! She was always blending up something with fresh ingredients and droplets of this or that homeopathic something or another – potions, really. However, she did NOT like the cleanup involved with the other three juicers she owned. Of all of them, this was the most user friendly. You literally snap up the little silver lip that the fresh juice pours out of and the entire thing comes apart. All the pieces are dishwasher safe, too. Rue’s SMART juicer comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$175 NOW $87.50Rue's Fabulous St. John Outfit from "Law & Order" [SOLD]
I was with Rue the day the wardrobe mistress from “Law & Order” took her shopping, and this outfit cost over $4,000! Can you imagine? Anyway, as per her contract, Rue always got to keep her costumes, and since she was playing a wealthy Park Avenue widow – who supposedly had an illegitimate son with President Kennedy – Rue steered the wardrobe mistress to the St. John Flagship Store on Fifth Avenue (she knew she wanted something she would wear again – smart Rue!). Here it is, four fabulous pieces. The pants and jacket are both size 14, the top is “L” and the studded, rhinestoned encrusted tie is 5.5″ long. Immediately after filming the episode, Rue wore the jacket and tie to the “Sordid Lives” release party – those pictures are of her with her co-stars and the series/movie creator. We realize that this is a pricier item on the site, but the reality is – even if it weren’t owned by Rue McClanahan – this outfit is a STEAL at twice the price!
$750 NOW $375Personalize Signed 8" x 10" Memoir Cover Shot - "To Joseph" [SOLD]
Why Rue never sent this personalized, signed photograph to whoever this Joseph was, we’ll never know. Perhaps she didn’t like the signature, but she never threw it out. We found this in her desk. Certainly there is a Joseph out there that you know, or perhaps you are one yourself, who is a Rue McClanahan fan. This is very likely the only way you’ll ever get an original, personalized, signed picture of Rue. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$99Signed Jazz Program From Event Rue and Bea Hosted
This piece probably won’t appeal to everyone, but to the fan of jazz, this piece is going to be AMAZING! First of all, how bizarre is it that Rue McClanahan and Bea Arthur hosted this jazz event at all? If you knew Rue though, you’d know she was a huge fan of jazz from the very beginning. She and her best friend, later her second husband, Norman, were jazz nuts. Rue’s son, Mark, is a jazz guitarist to this day. Can you see the paintings Rue had hanging around her Manhattan apartment? They are lots of jazz greats, and Rue didn’t buy those works of art, she had them commissioned directly from the artist! Anyway, this event had a lot of jazz greats in person, and many of them signed Rue’s program. And although she did not sign her name, we think that note on the back, which reads: “To My Dear Rue, Thank you!!!” was from Bea Arthur. Rue was the one that convinced her to do it, and Bea ended up having a fabulous time and falling hard for jazz. We haven’t found anything public about this event, either, so this is a rare document from what was certainly an unbelievable gathering of musical and acting talent. This originally signed piece of jazz and television history comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
