Featured ItemsRue's 1985 LA Weekly LAWEE Award
Did you know that after 35-years LA Weekly has stopped the LAWEE Awards this year? Rue received her LAWEE Award 30 years ago in 1985 for a performance she gave in a play entitled “In The Sweet Bye and Bye.” Interestingly, while Rue was in this production, a pilot she had done for NBC was picked up for a whole season. That pilot was “The Golden Girls!” That meant Rue was working at NBC taping this new show during the day, and then she was going on stage in the evenings with this theatrical production. The play was doing well and it ended up extending – in no small part because of Rue’s stellar performance – and the new show for NBC took off, too. Rue had two hits on her hands. Rue’s LAWEE Award comes with prints of the images shown and a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$325 NOW $162.50Rue'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 $87.50Why Was This Red Plastic Bauble in Rue's Jewelry Box? [SOLD]
We have absolutely no idea how this huge red adjustable plastic ring landed in Rue’s jewelry box – alongside diamonds and emeralds – but it was there. It is almost 1.5″ across and is another 1.5″ from the bottom of the band to the surface of the “stone.” It is a mystery, but there is one thing for sure, it belonged to Rue McClanahan and thus will come with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$14.14Rue's Peter Max Hat
Part of Rue’s job involved showing up at big network events, so she hit the red carpet for the CBS 75th Birthday Celebration held in New York City in the early 2000s. One of the gifts presented to the celebrities that attended was this special piece of memorabilia – a hat designed by the world-famous artist Peter Max. Rue’s Peter Max hat comes with prints of the photos posted – Rue with Peter Max in his studio, and one of her on the red carpet from the night of the party – and a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$375 NOW $187.50Rue's Past President Chew Toys
Aren’t these a hoot? These past president chew toys made Rue roar with laughter; she especially loved the little Dan Quayle attached to President Bush! These chew toys are over 25-years old and they still are in good shape, even the squeakers in the bottoms work. Rue’s past president chew toys measures about 5.5″ high and they come with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$175Original, Signed "Doodle" from Rue's Manhattan Apartment [SOLD]
We probably don’t need to write much about this piece, it speaks for iteself. By now, you probably know that Rue “doodled” – as she called it – all the time. Betty White talks about how Rue used to doodle on “The Golden Girls” scripts on the video she made for Rue’s Facebook page – “The Official Rue McClanahan Memorial Facebook Page.” Rue had some of her more intricate doodles framed and kept them on the walls of her California houses and NYC apartments, and this is one of them. In addition to her elaborate drawings, this particular doodle is special because of the writing Rue did on it, and the intimate peak inside her heart the words reveal. This original work of art, signed by Rue McClanahan, comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
