    Yes, this is real. There are actually several foreign versions of The Golden Girls, including in the U.K. (The Brighton Belles), Russia (Bolshie Devochki or Big Girls), and Greece (Chrysa Koritsia or Gold Girls). The Dutch version premiered just last fall in The Netherlands — yes, 27 years after the original series began.

    It's the one where Blanche thinks she's pregnant because she's going through menopause. The subplot is the women raising minks — in this version, chickens. If you're a fan of The Golden Girls, you'll be surprised at how much you understand.
