Golden Girls star Rue McClanahan is doing well after undergoing a cardial bypass, according to the actress' rep.
"She is doing absolutely great," McClanahan's rep told Access Hollywood. "She went for her physical the other day and her doctor didn't like what he found.... She was in great spirits when she went in for surgery yesterday. She's resting in a hospital in [New York] and she'll probably be out in a week."
The unexpected surgery forced McClanahan to cancel her appearance at a Nov. 14 tribute event in San Francisco. "My darlings, I'm just devastated that I am going to have to miss my own tribute at the Castro Theatre," McClanahan said in a statement to The Advocate, which first reported her hospitalization.

It's going to be a busy weekend for Mad Men star Rich Sommer.
Before the AMC drama wraps up its third season Sunday night (10/9c), Sommer will appear in a ripped-from-the-headlines episode of Law & Order (Friday at 9/8c on NBC). "The episode is sort of inspired by the woman who drove the wrong way down the Taconic [Expressway]," Sommer tells TVGuide.com.

As Natalie, an eccentric woman whose boyfriend recently overdosed, she wears a spiky black wig, purple lipstick, tattoos and outfits that might charitably be called "layered."
