The recently released memoir "Sex, Drugs & Pilot Season" by former casting agent Joel Thurm sheds light on some backstage drama of the popular sitcom “The Golden Girls”. Thurm reveals that Bea Arthur and Rue McClanahan thought Betty White's behavior was unkind to Estelle Getty, who struggled with dementia and memory loss. Despite their personal disagreements, it did not affect the show itself. Thurm also writes about encounters with other Hollywood stars, including Robert Reed and Rock Hudson, as well as incidents of the "casting couch" in action.
