Talk show host David Rubin sat down with his sassy octogenarian grandma Elaine to discuss life and love, as one is wont to do with one’s 85-year-old grandmother.
Elaine — who, for the record, does not feel old (or look it, Miss Thing) but simply “happy to be alive” — barely remembers that her grandson is gay and couldn’t care less. “If you’re happy that’s all that counts,” she says.”You’re a good person and that’s all that counts.” She then hits this perfect Arthurian take:
“How many people aren’t gay and they’re stinkers?”
Bea Arthur that is. She’s already got the kimono, and yet her gay grandson neglected to provide a cheesecake.
