Rue McClanahan Dead at 76

Filed under: Celebrities

Rue McClanahan, actress, star of stage and screen, vegan and ardent animal rights activist died today of a Massive Stroke; she was 76. She’ll forever be remembered as the saucy southern belle Blanche Devereaux from the hit 1980’s sitcom “The Golden Girls”.

Here’s an amazing quote from Ms. McClanahan:

“Compassion is the foundation of everything positive, everything good. If you carry the power of compassion to the marketplace and the dinner table, you can make your life really count.”

Rest in peace Blanche; stay golden.

    I loved watching Rue McClanahan and was happy she was doing something to further compassion. However, she was not vegan or an animal rights activist. She was vegetarian and an animal welfare activist. There’s a difference.

    I remember seeing her speak at the NY League of Humane Voters (aka Vote Humane) Gala in 2007 and she was delightful.

    In response to this comment: I know the difference between a vegetarian and a vegan, but DO NOT KNOW the difference between an animal rights activist and an animal welfare activist. I am a vegetarian and always felt that animals had rights FOR THEIR own welfare. Please explain the difference.
    Rue will be so sadly missed by God’s precious creatures and in the entertainment industry.
