Inspired by Blanche Devereaux in The Golden Girls (1985), played by Rue McClanahan.
One often thinks of southern belles as meek and mild types, but Blanche Devereaux kept her roommates’ eyes wide open with her saucy tales of romance and not-so clandestine canoodling. Though married most of her life to her high school sweetheart, George, Blanche wasn’t about to let having fifty years under her belt slow her down. Perhaps Blanche said it best when she said, “He is so sophisticated and charming and rich and handsome. He screams Blanche. At least, he will when I’M through with him.” Go get him, grandma!
