      “Estelle was just like everyone’s grandmother”?
      That’s strange since Estelle Getty was actually younger than Betty White and her “daughter”, Bea Arthur.
      According to Wikipedia:
      “In the pilot episode, the women had a gay cook named Coco (Charles Levin), who was subsequently eliminated.”
      So much for “being a friend”.

      Oh for fuck’s sake. Are you really going to hold the non-recurrence of a one-note character against one of many writers on the show who got the writing job years later? coco wasn’t kept on because Sophia was considered funnier and it was considered kind of redundant to have a cleaner/cook/housekeeper in a house with four women (as sexist as that sounds).

      The fact is Golden Girls was one of the most gay-friendly shows ever on TV and decades ahead of its time on social issues.

      I loved the Golden Girls. Still do as a matter of fact. It’s funny i’ll watch the GG’s and still laugh but watch comparable shows that were around it at the time like Who’s the boss, facts of life etc and there was just no comparison. The humor and adult content was just way ahead of it’s time.
