Ninety years ago today a wonderful lady was born named Betty Marion White. Miss White is truly a relic of a time that has passed. She has been in the entertainment business since 1939 and has been keeping her career strong with her current hit show, Hot In Cleveland. There is something about Betty’s charisma that is encapsulating, making you want to reach out and give her a hug. Whenever anyone asks Betty why she won’t retire, she replies, “Why should I quit when I’m having such a good time?”
Betty White began her career modeling after gradating high school and then joined the American Women’s Voluntary Services during World War II. After working with a variety of radio shows, she finally landed her own, The Betty White Show. The next milestone in her career was her role as Sue Ann Nivens in The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Her next major career highlight was her role as Rose Nylund in The Golden Girls. I am probably the biggest Golden Girls fan I know and it is all because of Betty.
Betty White’s career has spanned over seven decades and counting, and now her life is eclipsing nine. She has won seven Emmy awards, among countless others, and was included in Television’s Hall of Fame in 1955, a mere 16 years into her amazing career. I cannot wait to see what Betty White still has in store for us. Below you can see her getting some lip action for hottie Zachary Levi for her 90th birthday celebration!
Happy birthday Betty from all of us here at Lulu*s, we love you!
