    I heard ,originally, the people of the show wanted Rue to be Rose, and Betty White to be Blanche.

    They should have did an episode where Rose and Blanche pretend to be one another to fool their blind dates.

    Yep you are correct.  Betty White decided that she did not want to play another horny vixen type character again. 

    So she got Rose and Rue got Blanche.  Where she gave Blanche the southern accent.  The Blanche character was just going to be from the south with no accent.  She gave her an accent to give the Blanche more of a character and distiguish her from the rest.
