Dr. Harry Weston was a widowed pediatrician with two adult daughters living in his Miami home. And Sophia, Blanche, Rose and Dorothy were his next-door neighbors. “The Golden Girls” was a hit show that followed four seniors and it spawned two spin-offs: “Golden Palace” and “Empty Nest.” While the former failed to take off, the latter had no problems becoming a hit. For its first three seasons, “Empty Nest” was one of the top-ten shows watched in America. All four of the golden girls made guest appearances on the show and Sophia, played by Estelle Getty, eventually became a show regular.
