Blanche, Rose, Sophia or Dorothy - Which Golden Girl Are You? Play our fun Golden Girls quiz to see which Golden Girl you would best match up with personality-wise! The Golden Girls aired on television for seven seasons from 1985 to 1992. It was the Walt Disney Company's second TV production under the Touchstone Television label. The show is about four older women who live together in Miami, and it follows the ups and downs of their friendships, relationships and families. The show starred Bea Arthur, Betty White, Rue McClanahan and Estelle Getty.

The Golden Girls won several awards, including an Emmy Award for each of the four stars of the
show. Only four sitcoms in history have achieved this. The show was critically acclaimed throughout
most of its seven-season run. It also ranked in the top 10 in the Neilsen ratings for six of those
seven seasons. The series continues to attract new fans and is definitely a prime example of a
situation comedy that has aged well. Have fun finding out which Golden Girl you are!

Fun Facts

Estelle Getty, who played the part of the little Italian spitfire, Sophia Petrillo, suffered from extreme
stage fright. She was less experienced than the other three actors and even stated in an interview in
1988 that working with the rest of the cast scared her. She worried that the fans would discover she
wasn't that good an actor. She need not have worried. Getty also had a phobia about death — a fact
that she disguised extremely well when tossing off funny quips in funeral home scenes.

During the first season of the show, Estelle Getty spent 45 minutes in The Golden Girls makeup
department transforming into Sophia. That complex aging process took even longer in season two,
when Estelle returned to set looking even younger after the show's first hiatus —  she'd had a face-
lift. In actual fact, Estelle Getty was one year younger than her television daughter, Dorothy.
