Who else binged Golden Girls this year? These four ladies have the best advice, fashion, friendship, and, well, everything! You too can be like these incredible women. Check out our guide!
Live Like Rose
Rose is loving, down-to-earth and curious — maybe a little too curious. Rose likes to ask questions, even if she knows she’s going to get a sarcastic answer in return, but she still loves her roommates anyway. Her innocence keeps her friends in check.
Our Favorite Rose Traits:
Love your pets: “When I was a child, I used to get overexcited and pet the cat too hard.”
It’s okay to ask questions: “I don’t understand how a thermos keeps things both hot and cold.”
Don’t Brag: “Well, it’s been my experience that people who talk about it a lot don’t do it very often.”
Don’t be afraid of your age: “The older you get, the better you get. Unless you’re a banana.”
Dress Like Blanche
Blanche is cheerful, extroverted and a tad bit promiscuous. Even though she’s in her 60s, Blanche makes the most of Miami’s bustling nightlife. Age is nothing but a number to this fun-loving gal. She’s living the life of a twenty-something with wisdom that only comes with experience.
Our Favorite Blanche Traits:
Dress as if it’s your last outfit: “I saw my entire life flash before my eyes and I thought. ‘What a shame if I die now, I’m too young…and I’m wearing the wrong underwear.’”
Always know your worth: “If only I could do something to make myself less attractive.”
Always tell the truth even if they don’t believe you: “Well, nobody ever believes me when I’m telling the truth. I guess it’s the curse of every devastating beautiful woman.”
The amount of time that is appropriate to wait for someone: “According to the rules of etiquette, you should never wait more than twenty minutes for a date.”
Think Like Dorothy
Dorothy is strong, humble and compassionate. Despite going through dark times with her ex, Dorothy heals with the help of her friends. Over the years, they’ve become as close as sisters tackling life’s challenges together.
Our Favorite Dorthy Traits:
Never hold back: Dorothy to Rose: “Go to sleep sweetheart, pray for brains.”
Dessert first: Rose: “Where are you going?” Dorothy: “To get ice cream. Or commit a felony. I’ll decide in the car.”
Coffe First Always: Dorothy to Blanche and Rose: “If I had that money I could have moved into a swinging condo instead of living with—I better not say anything until I’ve had my coffee [sips coffee]—a slut and a moron!”
Calling your friends BS out: Blanche: “Now, only women in their twenties and thirties have babies, whatever is a woman in her forties to do?” Dorothy: “I don’t know, why don’t we find one and ask?”
Speak Like Sophia
Sophia is loud, decisive and eccentric (in the best way)! But she’s also caring when she needs to be. Sophia loves Rose and Blanche as if they were her own children and adores her own daughter, Dorothy. She’s quick to dish out advice — and it’s not just because she loves the sound of her own Brooklyn voice. She truly wants the best for her friends and would do anything for them.
Our Favorite Sophia Traits:
Be honest with your friend’s choices: “Your heart’s in the right place, but I don’t know where the hell your brain is.”
Set boundaries: “Have I given you any indication at all that I care?”
Remember your blessings: “I always wondered why blessings wore disguises. If I were a blessing, I’d run around naked.
You can’t control everything: Blanche: But you have to promise me you won’t do anything to embarrass me. Sophia: I’ll try but if they serve me cauliflower, it’s in God’s hands.
