Relive some Fun Facts about the Golden Girls






1. It took 9 hours to film 1 episode


2.NBC was against casting Bea Arthur as Dorothy
-They thought that Bea's ratings with the general audience was to low and they would not warm up to her


5.Estelle Getty (aka Sophia) was only one year younger in real-life than her TV daughter Bea Arthur (aka Dorothy)



7.There were only 3 chairs at the kitchen table even though 4 women lived in their house
-The camera crew didn't want to have one of the women facing away from the camera so they only had 3 chairs to keep everyone in frame


10.Elaine Stritch auditioned for the part of Dorothy, but said she didn't get the role because the show's writer didn't like her
