Few television shows are as cherished in the gay community as The Golden Girls, which is why everyone is stirring over the prospect of a gay male version—a gay Golden Girls, if you will, though, somehow, that sounds redundant.

Two of the writers from the 1985 original series, Stan Zimmerman and James Berg, have penned a pilot for Silver Foxes, a series built around four older gay men. Zimmerman and Berg also have writing credits on Roseanne and Gilmore Girls, meaning we just might have an instant classic on our hands. Read More

Afterwards, he wrote a glowing review, and she called to thank him.

While Carrie Fisher is best known for her work in front of the camera, she was also a celebrated writer of books and films. The late Star Wars actress and icon, who died at age 60 on Dec. 27 after a heart attack, was even responsible for writing a few key funny one-liners for Oscar hosts and accidentally covering them in glitter.

Vilanch recently shared with PEOPLE three of his favorite memories from working with Fisher, here they are in his own words: Read More
