    Golden Girls' Rue McClanahan Suffers Stroke

    Golden Girl Rue McClanahan has suffered what her rep terms a "minor" stroke while recovering from heart bypass surgery.

    The erstwhile Blanche Devereaux had her heart operation in November. The Emmy winner then spent two weeks in the ICU after doctors successfully removed the blood clot in her brain. Her recovery is slow but steady, with her speech and movement on the right side of her body affected.

    McClanahan, 75, is undergoing physical therapy but should be out of the hospital by the end of the month, according to her rep.

    With the death of Bea Arthur last year, McClanahan and Betty White are the last surviving stars of the hugely popular former NBC sitcom.

    Let's hope this Golden Girl is back in the pink as soon as possible.
