Now this goes to the grave with you - I hate cheesecake!
When you are working with someone it's like family, you are together every day.
I don't think there was ever an embarrassment, there was such love going back and forth between the audience and us, that nothing was embarrassing.
I guess just, I don't know, I didn't know I was that vibrant, I just love being alive, and I love people, and I find something wonderful everyday.
I watch a lot of news shows and I love Nick at Night, and the Comedy Channel.
I think I always sang, I always used to listen to old Bessie Smith records, and Kate Smith. And Billie Holiday. Before television when there was radio.
I've been blessed with both shows, with that and with Maude, working with terrific writers and directors.
But I did like the fact that we did a lot of good in presenting problems that had not been tackled before on television.
I think the mother-daughter between Estelle and me was one made in comedy heaven.
I love cooking, I love reading, I love anything that doesn't take too much exercise!
There was so much more we wanted to cover on the show, but since I couldn't get the network censors to budge, I decided to leave the show.
Unfortunately opening night in Minneapolis I fell of the stage.
There are moments, I'll be home cooking or something, and it comes to me all at once, and I can't believe it.
Every time you perform you learn a little bit more.
Life is filled with a lot of stuff, you know. There is never a dull moment.
In a theater you have that many more seats, so that many more people, and they are feeding you, telling you how far you can go or what you can do.
And I hate autobiographies, I don't know why.
I did a thing on Malcolm in the Middle which I loved.
It's so rewarding when you hear the audience respond.
I guess having two kids who are bright and articulate and have great humor and are decent.
I'm here now in Chicago doing my own show, and I think Golden Girls is shown three hours a day here, and everybody loves it.
An Evening with Bea Arthur and Billy Goldenberg at the Piano.
But at least I'm not playing other people for a change.
If you would have told me ten years ago I'd be doing this and being received like I am now, I'd say you're crazy.
