A Golden Birthday for a Golden Girl

In honor of Betty White’s 90th Birthday, we offer this tribute to Miss Betty White

You are still and will forever be “our” Golden Girl.

Betty has been on television forever, here she is as a young and beautiful tv star

Betty has had two great loves in her life , her late husband Allen Ludden

and one that I share with her and that is her love of animals. Betty has dedicated her life to helping with animals, wild and domesticated.

aww I love giraffes!!!!

Betty was first known to me as the sassy Happy Homemaker on The Mary Tyler Moore Show.

here she is in the newsroom with Mary and the gang

here she is put in her place by Murray after she tried to boss him around as producer of her show.

Betty’s  next television triumph was as Rose on The Golden Girls. This television hit was made by the same producer as SOAP and son of television legend Danny Thomas, Tony Thomas.  Interestingly enough , Betty was being read as man hungry Blanche since she had played it so well on MTM . But a clever change of casting was done and Rue was cast as Blanche and Betty as the naive Rose Nylund. Sadly all of Betty’s co stars are now in heaven.  But we will remember our girls forever.

Betty loves game shows. She has a special reason for that . It was when she was doing the show Password , she met her late husband Allen Ludden. He was the host of the show.

Betty has now been introduced to a new generation. Here she is on the TV Land hit Hot in Cleveland. Betty shares the spotlight with three other actresses who have all made their mark on television.  The show’s producer is W and G actor , Sean Hayes. He has actually appeared on the show.

Here is Betty hosting SNL . There was actually a Facebook campaign to have her host SNL.  Of course, we voted.

Here she is in a Super Bowl commercial for SNICKERS


But whatever you remember her for and , she is truly a national treasure so. . .

    Happy   90th Birthday!!!!!!!  Betty!!!!!!!!
