I am so, so, so saddened by this.
I saw her as Madame Morrible, which was such a pleasure for me because I was pretty much raised on The Golden Girls (reruns, of course, but my dad was *obsessed*.)
This morning when I was in school I saw Perez Hilton's tweet saying that he heard some very bad rumors about Rue that he hoped weren't true, and he was sending her good vibes. So I googled her and saw that she underwent heart bypass surgery, but her doctors said she was doing well and had accepted a new job for January.
Then I just logged onto yahoo during my study hall and saw that she died. I'm so beyond upset!!
Sorry for the rambling. I loved her. </3 Rest in Peace Rue. Thanks for the laughs!
