In a stunning announcement that has left fans of “The Golden Girls” in shock, it has been revealed that Judge Jeanine Pirro has been offered the role of Dorothy in an upcoming reboot of the beloved sitcom.
The news was first reported by the Hollywood Reporter, which claims that Pirro was approached by the show’s producers after they were impressed by her outspoken personality and tough-talking demeanor.
But while some fans have expressed excitement about the prospect of seeing Pirro in a new role, others have criticized the move as a blatant attempt to pander to conservative audiences and capitalize on Pirro’s political views.
“It’s clear that this is just a stunt to get more viewers and appeal to a certain demographic,” said one longtime fan of the show. “There’s no way that Pirro can replace Bea Arthur, who was the heart and soul of the original series.”
Others have gone even further, calling for a boycott of the new show and accusing Pirro of being a divisive and polarizing figure who has no place in a lighthearted comedy like “The Golden Girls.”
But despite the backlash, Pirro remains undeterred, insisting that she is the perfect choice to play Dorothy and that the show’s fans will love her performance.
“I’m honored to be considered for this role, and I think that I can bring a fresh perspective to the character of Dorothy,” Pirro said in a statement.
“I know that there will be some people who don’t like this decision, but I believe that I can win them over with my talent and my charm.”
As of now, it’s unclear when the new version of “The Golden Girls” will be hitting the airwaves, or who else will be joining Pirro on the cast. But one thing is for sure: this is a show that will be watched closely by both supporters and detractors alike.
