Favorite Golden Girl: Dorothy or Sophia?
Dorothy, Rose, Blanche, and Sophia are all TV icons and goddesses—but who is truly your favorite Golden Girl? Get out your cheesecake, take it to the lanai and let's vote!
Dorothy was the tough, smart, jaded, witheringly sarcastic, sometimes intimidating, and usually most grounded realist of the four housemates. Arthur's portrayal of caustic Dorothy is her most famous role, and her shrieks of "MA!" and glowering threats of "Shady Pines!" whenever Sophia crosses the line are the stuff of legend.
"Picture it!" Sophia is the oldest of the four housemates. A stroke has left her without any social filter whatsoever, and perhaps because of it, she maintains the most equilibrium of the ladies, wisecracking, insulting, scheming, and telling tales of her possibly mob-connected life in a Sicilian village while stirring a pot on the stove.
