    did any one else who watched the golden girls greatest moments special notice that bea arthur seems to be heading in the same direction as estelle getty. she seemed to be forgetting things, and had a hard time thinking of what to say. i think she may be getting dementia or alzheimers. it doesn't look good for the two who were the perfect mother-daughter duo for seven years

    I'm sure it has more to do with age than any sickness. She is, after all, 82-years-old. I saw her on stage a few years back, and she seemed perfectly healthy, just older. Of course, she actually fell off stage when I saw her, but that's a different story altogether.

    That's true, it could be just age. (At least, I hope so, anyway.)

    The scary thing is that when I saw her at Pamela's Roast, she looked like Estelle Getty!

    Estelle is younger than Bea. And of course she is going to be looking older and she like most of the people now a days hasn't gone on to get plastic surgery.
