You might have noticed that Bea Arthur was a trending topic on Twitter Thursday!
No birthdays or anniversary’s to speak of. There was an article in Forbes about her generosity, leaving $300,000 to the Ali Forney Center, the US’s largest agency devoted to homeless youth in the LGBTQ+ community. Also the news of a Golden Girls Cruise might have sparked the sudden trend… But sadly, it wasn’t either of those things… It was Chrissy Teigen, queen of twitter who set off the trend by taking to the social media platform to announce that she thought the name “Bea” was super cute!
“bea” is such an adorable name. someone name their kid bea please. I am not ready for another daughter and John says no more dogs. I will be their god parent
