- The late actress Rue McClanahan became a household name in the 1980s as one of the stars of the hit sitcom 'The Golden Girls.'

In her honor, longtime friend Michael LaRue is reportedly opening a cafe in Washington Heights he'll call 'Rue La Rue Cafe.'

According to DNAInfo.com, co-star Betty White has already agreed to attend the ribbon cutting.

The cafe is slated to open at the Sofia Storage Building in early September at 4396 Broadway.

LaRue says he plans to decorate the cafe with items he inherited from McClanahan after her death in 2010.

'The Golden Girls' which aired during the 1980s and 1990s, centered on four previously married women living together in Miami during their golden years.

It also starred Bea Arthur and Estelle Getty.
