Golden Girl Rue McClanahan in hospital

You know you’re really unwell when you can’t make it to your own tribute… Former ‘Golden Girls’ star Rue ocClanahan had to take a rain-check to her ‘Golden: A Gala Tribute to Rue ocClanahan’ evening in San Francisco, which was set to recognise her contribution to acting, after she was hospitalised suffering from a cardiac illness.

Rue (75) assures her fans, “oy darlings, I’m just devastated that I am going to have to miss my own tribute at the Castro Theatre. Unfortunately, my doctor has laid down the law and I’m currently having some maintenance on the old ticker. Trust me, I’d much rather be in San Francisco having fun and being adored by all of you.”
