It’s official, your favorite confidants are now on Instagram and to celebrate Disney is hosting a special live event with Queer Eye host Jonathan Van Ness and Marc Cherry, a writer from the original 80s sitcom.
For those who are not familiar, The Golden Girls originally aired on NBC back in 1985 and ran through 1992. The show was a half-hour sitcom starring Bea Arthur, Betty White, Rue, McClanahan, and Estelle Getty, and revolved around these four ladies who all shared a friendship and a home in Miami, Florida.
The show was produced by Witt/Thomas/Harris Productions, in association with Touchstone Television (Disney). The show, which is still in syndication on television today, and runs on a marathon every Sunday on TV Land (in most markets), has now officially made it into the new Millenium with the permanent staple of an Instagram (@goldengirls) account–and we couldn’t be more excited!
As of yet, the new account features a series of image posts that come together to form a large mural image of the golden cast. In the account’s bio, it reads: “Thank You For Being A Friend” with the most appropriate emoji: cheesecake.
