Originally posted 08/29/2016 01:30PM

Bea Arthur continues to leave her mark on the LGBT community.

The late Golden Girls star left $300,000 in her will to the Ali Forney Center which led to the planning and building of the Bea Arthur residence center, an organization that provides shelter and supportive services to LGBT youth.

"The 18 bed residence will house AFC's transitional living program which in addition to offering homeless LGBT youth a safe and affirming home also offers a host of comprehensive services aimed at empowering youth to become independent," according to the Ali Forney Center.

VIDEO: 15 Heart-Warming Classic TV Christmas Moments and Miracles

Originally posted 12/09/2015 04:15PM

Television shows didn't invent the idea of a Christmas miracle, but they sure help remind us that come Dec. 25, there's a chance that whatever woe and strife we're facing could vanish in a single, magical instant. And while not every show has a Christmas moment – and not every Christmas episode delivers a miracle – we thought we'd celebrate the season with 15 of our favorites.

When TV Goes on Holiday: The Hottest Small-Screen Vacation Spots, by the Numbers

Originally posted 08/12/2015 05:00PM

It seems like every time our favorite TV characters take a vacation, they end up in one of three main destinations: Hawaii, Paris or Disney World.

It makes sense that these would be such popular destinations – after all; they're familiar, easy to film in and ripe for sitcom hijinks. And really, who doesn't want to hang with Mickey and Minnie or sunbathe in the tropics or even take a romantic stroll along the Seine?

Since all three of these locations seemed to entice our favorite shows over and over again, we couldn't help but wonder which other exotic destinations are statistically more likely to attract our favorite TV shows. Since we never pass up an excuse to binge watch Friends and Saved by the Bell, we dug through some classic shows from the TV archives and did a little math. You'll notice that some shows managed to rack up some serious frequent flier miles during their runs!

Watch: Estelle Getty Channels Alicia Silverstone in a Golden Girls Parody of Clueless

Originally posted 07/20/2015 05:00PM

[YOUTUBE "EJE9tr7GR3g"] It's been fun looking back on the 20th anniversary of the teen classic Clueless, which first hit theaters on July 21, 1995. But one of the more surprising bits of Clueless nostalgia to surface actually comes from 1996, from the first MTV Movie Awards to air after the film's release.

Even die-hard Golden Girls fans may have forgotten that the awards show featured a Clueless parody featuring Estelle Getty as Cher, Betty White as Dionne and Rue McClanahan as a fusion of Tai and Amber.

Terry Crews Lip-Syncs Golden Girls Theme to Betty White at TV Land Awards

Originally posted 04/16/2015 02:35AM

[YOUTUBE "g7-4UVmke5E"] There are a few truths in life. 1. That there's no such thing as too much Betty White. 2. That most people know the lyrics to the Golden Girls theme song. 3. That watching Terry Crews lip sync that song to Betty White is must-see TV.

Crews, who hosts the TV Land Awards on Saturday, gives a spirited performance as he mouths the lyrics to a medley of TV theme songs in the clip above. The number – taped earlier this month – includes nods to The Addams Family, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Friends and, of course, The Golden Girls.
