Christmas Themed "Doodle" Script

We posted some Polaroids a couple of days ago taken behind-the-scenes that show Rue wearing this two-piece outfit, now here it is. The top is sized “Medium” and made by a company called “Mamos Sue’s.” The pants don’t have a tag, so they may or may not be by...

Blanche's Classic Black Leather Mules [SOLD]

Rue's MADD Certificate of Merit

Right off the bat we want to make clear that Rue drank alcohol, she was in NO WAY a teetotaler. However, Rue was adamant about NOT drinking and driving. One of her great nephews did that and she was horrified to see his body opened up in the emergency room as a result. He survived, but the...

"Blanche's" Final Episode Silk Gown and Floral Cover-Up [SOLD]

Stunning Blue Dress with Matching Cover-Up from Final Season of "The Golden Girls" [SOLD]

At the risk of coming across as Mrs. Danvers from Daphne du Maurier’s 1938 novel “Rebecca,” we must say that this dress is stunning and Rue looked amazing in it. (For those who haven’t read the book: first of all, do; and second, Mrs. Danvers is this great lady’s...

Saks Fifth Avenue Silk Two-Piece Outfit

Guess Sweater from Season Three of "The Golden Girls" [SOLD]

Do you remember when “stone-washed” was all the rage? Naturally, being a stylish lady, Blanche was wearing stone washed items in the late ’80s. This sweater was made by Guess and is now considered “vintage;” it is almost 30-years old! As a costume piece worn by...

"Blanche's" FABULOUS Earrings [SOLD]

"Blanche's" Purple Flowered Blouse

Rue wore this blouse on “The Golden Girls,” Rue wore this blouse on the stage, Rue wore this blouse in a “People Magazine” interview, and Rue wore this blouse in her personal life. We think it is safe to assert that Rue really liked this blouse. Amazingly, after all of...

Rue's Large Cocktail Ring [SOLD]

We don’t think this is a genuine diamond ring, but it isn’t exactly a piece of junk jewelry either! It is stamped inside with 14KTGF, which we think means it is plated or filled with real gold. There are about 36 prong set rhinestones around the outside of the large black stone,...

Earrings "Blanche" Wore in "The Golden Girls" Pilot(!) [SOLD]

"Filched" Poster from DVD Release Party [SOLD]

Rue could be such a bad girl! The last time “The Girls” got together in NYC was for a DVD release party. Estelle Getty was either too sick to travel or had already passed by that point, but Rue, Betty White, and Bea Arthur all attended the event. Rue noticed these large foam board...

Rue's Personal NBC Logo Makeup Room Robe

All four of “The Golden Girls” had robes or coverups they used in the makeup room because sometimes they would already be in costume when the professional makeup people would be doing their jobs. Or, as Rue pointed out, even if they weren’t in costume, she didn’t want to...

Rue's FABULOUS Sugar Bowl (And a Story) [SOLD]

First lets get the bowl out of the way: yes, it is fabulous; it is 4.5″ high, the opening is 3″, and the base is 3″, but the middle flares out; it is handmade and signed by the artist, and it seems to be in great shape. Now, the story: so, this sugar bowl sat on Rue’s...
