Yes, I know that’s redundant since The Golden Girls is really gay. But I’m talking about a version of the Golden Girls starring gay men, and no, it’s not called Golden Gays. It’s called Silver Foxes. I can already see Anderson Cooper rolling his eyeballs over them stealing his nickname!
As HuffPo points out, the producing and writing team of James Berg and Stan Zimmerman, who wrote episodes of The Golden Girls and Roseanne as well as A Very Brady Sequel, were on the podcast Party Foul Radio with Pollo & Pearl to talk about stuff. James and Stan said that after watching the documentary Before You Know It, which is about the struggles of elder-gays, they got the idea to do a show about four older gay men. So they wrote the pilot for Silver Foxes and last year they did a table reading of the script with George Takei, Bruce Vilanch, Leslie Jordan, Todd Sherry, Cheri Oteri and more!
Usually when Christmastimes roll around and a few of my loved ones ask me if I want anything for Christmas, I say, “Oh, that Christmas shit is for children and I don’t need anything but your love… However, I don’t want to make you feel bad, so…“, before whipping out my What I Want For Christmas catalog complete with pictures, Amazon links and my favorite kinds of weed strains. But this year, all I have to do is scream five wonderful words: THE GOLDEN GIRLS BOARD GAME!
