"Of all the Golden Girls profiles aired, these are by far the most thorough and accurate tellings of each of the actresses' stories. And included here is perhaps one of the last (if not the last) interviews of Estelle Getty."
GETTING TO KNOW THE GOLDEN GIRLS IN THEIR OWN WORDS!!!

"When I first learned this dvd would be available on Amazon I was delighted because Beatrice Arthur is my favorite Golden Girl, and I had missed seeing her intimate portrait when it aired on Lifetime. Needless to say I was absolutely thrilled to pop in the dvd and learn more about my favorite funny lady!!!
The main thing I most enjoy about the intimate portrait series are the interviews are in the star's own words, so you really get to know them more intimately! Bea, Rue, Betty, and Estelle we love you!!!!"
"A Must for Your Golden Girl Collection"

"Did you know anything about the actresses of the Golden Girls? If not, then you will soon know after buying this above average biography of each Golden Girl. Here are some shockers, Bea Arthur used to be a man, just kidding. However, Bea Arthur did use her manly voice to her advantage when she starred in Broadway. Bea Arthur, of course, became an international star when she starred in Maude. Sadly, the end of her marriage also ended, when success became too big for her husband. Rue McClanahan has been married 6 times. She is also a survivor of breast cancer. Betty White found the love of her life in her late forties but tragically he died and left her a widow. Lastly, Estelle Getty is a big aids activist and has a big gay following. Estelle also is separated from her husband. Sadly, Estelle Getty is also a victim of Parkenson disease. This may very well be her last interview. Special Guest Appearances including the late John Ritter, Mary Tyler Moore, Ed Asner, Rosie O'Donnell and other surprises. This is a must for your Golden Girl collection. Buy it today as a compliment to any Golden Girl dvd series."
For The Fans!

"This DVD proved to be quite a treat for fans of The Golden Girls when it was released. It features 4 wonderful specials on each of the Golden Girls: Bea Arthur, Estelle Getty, Betty White, and Rue McClanahan. Each episode lasts about 40 to 50 minutes long and is entertaining, yet very informative. What fan doesn't want to learn more about their favorite Golden Girl? I'm so glad this DVD was released. It's a treat for all the GG fans out there."

"The interviews were very informative and gave a background of each actress. The cover can be confusing as it is not necessarily about the show Golden Girls, and why they have Estelle Getty in Sophia make-up is their way to sell more DVD's I assume. Each interview only includes a only small amount of information about their time on Golden Girls."
