Step aside, golden-haired Serena and bitchy Blair. Before there were Gossip Girls, there were the original Gs: "The Golden Girls," who kept it super real with bamboo furniture and mumus. And they had dude issues and boy-girl sleepovers well into their golden years. Whether they were getting robbed at a Madonna concert, getting hit on by super skeezy dudes, sleeping in hotel lobbies, buying condoms, battling hurricanes, going to nudist colonies, meeting Julio Iglesias, or dealing with hard-hitting issues of the day (like when Blanche accepted her gay brother, or when Rose had an AIDS scare on a VERY SPECIAL "Golden Girls"), Rose, Blanche, Dorothy, and Sophia/ "Mahhh!" had the ultimate girl bond, even if they were just chillin' over coffee on a floral tablecloth-covered kitchen table, or admonishing their token promiscuous friend -- picture it!
Which is why I'm loving this acrylic Golden Girls tribute necklace by Etsy seller TrashedClothing:
