The sad passing of "Golden Girls" star Rue McClanahan, who died today at the age 76 from a stroke, had many fans of the beloved actress taking to their twitter pages to pay their respects. Jaimie Alexander posted, "R.I.P Rue McClanahan (February 20, 1934 – June 3, 2010)" while Mandy Moore wrote, "RIP rue mcclanahan. sending love and prayers to her loved ones....."
Many reflected on their love for Rue's iconic character, the saucy Southerner Blanche Devereaux. The All-American Rejects rocker Nickolas Wheeler tweeted, "I knew that I would Rue the day we lost yet another Golden Girl! RIP Blanche Devereaux" as Lance Bass paid homage with the show's classic theme song, "Thank you for being a friend Rue McClanahan! You will be missed Blanche!"
