The Golden Girls is the story of four older women who share a house in Miami Beach, Florida. Bea Arthur plays Dorothy Zbornak, a divorced school teacher, with a sardonic wit. Rue McClanahan plays Blanche Devereaux, a man-hunting Southern Belle. Betty White plays Rose Nylund, a very sweet woman who is somewhat spacey. Rounding out the trio is Estelle Getty, playing Dorothy's outspoken mother, Sophia Petrillo.
Susan Harris was interviewed on November 16th 2018 on a radio program for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Discussed are how she became a writer and the many years of the Golden Girls.
Dorothy: “Honey, you don't do too well under pressure. Remember the time in the coffee shop when you didn't have enough money, so you ran into the ladies room and tried to climb out through the skylight?”
Rose: “That doesn't happen anymore since I switched to decaf.”
