Bea Update :: Hearing loss and future project

Posted by & filed under News.

Thanks to Deb, who tipped me off this morning that Bea would be on E.T. tonight talking about her hearing loss. I’m glad that this subject was finally addressed, as I know from personal experiences in meeting her that hearing was quite fragile, making conversation sometimes frustrating to the both of us. Anyway, I recorded the interview and have put it up on YouTube for all of you to get caught up with! Still no slowing her down, however, as she is still planning to be on TVLand’s Back To The Grind early next year!

Funny how many hits this site gets every time Bea is on the news… hopefully, doesn’t crash my site :) Welcome all!

Kev!

More wonderful things to come in the future!

Two thing to look forward to ::

It’s official! A&E Biography will be filming a special on Bea Arthur in October.  Release date unknown at this time.
Second, all the ‘girls’ are being interviewed for the 7th season of the Golden Girls DVD… saving the best for last!

That’s what I have for now… stay tuned for more when I know more!
Take care all,
Kev!

Good things to come for those who wait!

A reliable source (leave it at that please) has informed me that it is true that Bea IS filming for the next 3 Fridays for the TV Land show mentioned earlier. Also, Bea is tentatively working an a biography!!! This is wonderful news for the recent lack of news and appearances over the past few months. I will let you know more as soon as I hear of more! In the meantime, please respect that this is all the information I have and emails asking for more information will be ignored. (I have to say that over and over because I continue to get emails like this all the time)

Kev!

Anonymous News Tip – Back to the Grind

Posted by & filed under News.

Take it for what it’s worth, being that it came from someone that wouldn’t she his or her name… hmmmm… but still sounds interesting if true! This is what he/she just wrote me ::

Bea will be taping an episode of TV Land’s new show, ‘Back to the Grind’ where tv stars of the psat go perform their characters old occupations. MTV’s TVLand Network is inviting Los Angeles-area Kaplan SAT students teens to be in their new “Back to the Grind” comedy reality series in which former sitcom stars do the jobs their characters did on TV. For this episode, Bea Arthur (“Golden Girls,” “Maude,”) will “teach” Kaplan students about the SAT. Previously-filmed episodes have featured Erik Estrada (“CHiPs”) working with the California Highway Patrol and Loni Anderson (“WKRP”) as a radio personality.

Summertime… break?

Posted by & filed under News.

It’s been awful quiet lately. Unfortunately, I have no new Bea news to reveal either. So, I thought I would simply say hello to everyone and which everyone a wonderful summer, as we have hit the midway point! If you are looking for something new to do, then mosey on over to the Fan Stories section, where I have posted two new stories! One from Steven Kyle and another from Joshua who attended the same show that I was at last year in Mount Pleasant, Michigan! Also, be sure to say hi or read up on what the other fans are talking about in the Yahoo Group!

Hope you are all well and hope you all have a wonderful rest of the summer season! I now have to get back to replying to some emails from Bea fans. I’m only two months behind (as usual!) Bye bye for now! (7 days till my birthday (August 6) ! I’m old (31) so buy me something nice!)
