    Yes, and Rue McClanahan was supposed to play Rose. There was lots of connections already:

    Rue McClanahan and Betty White were both on "Mama's Family" before "The Golden Girls."

    Rue McClanahan had also played a neighbor of Bea Arthur's on "Maude".

    Yes, but she did not want to play that part. She wanted to play Rose.

    Yes and Bea Arthur was going to refuse the show because it sounded similar to the one they already did together, but when she found out Betty and Rue were switching roles she gave it a chance.

    Yes , I knew that and Blanche was supposed to play the Rose character. The bosses decided to switch so they play different characters from a previous sit com they were in..
