I got to interview this lovely woman today!

Do you recognize this beautiful face? It’s Rue McClanahan – a.k.a. Blanche Devereauk – who is in Austin right now for a champagne brunch this Sunday!

My chat with Rue will be posted on Austinist tomorrow (including an aside on Rue’s cat Kate, who had her first heat at the McClanahan home…a milestone Rue would prefer to “not eva experience again” so spay and neuter your pets people!) In the meantime, if you are a breast cancer survivor or activist, I urge you to attend her talk this Sunday at the Renaissance Hotel, a fundraiser for Breast Cancer Resource Centers of Texas.

Thank you for being a friend, Rue!
