Betty White is one of the most recognizable faces in the United States. She's also the living embodiment of how fame can be too much pressure for some. In an exclusive interview with the Los Angeles Times, the former game show host said she's no longer living up to the "Ideal Betty" image. Part of this comes from retirement.White—whose full name was Betty Marion White—was born on January 17, 1922, in Oak Park, Illinois. She was the only child of Christine Tess, a homemaker, and Horace Logan White, a lighting company executive. When she was a year old, White’s family moved from Illinois to Alhambra, California, and later to Los Angeles, where White got her first taste of acting after she wrote and played the lead in her high school graduation play. After she graduated from high school, White worked as a model and hd her first professional acting job at the Bliss Hayden Little Theatre in Beverly Hills. She went on to work on the radio and have her own radio show, The Betty White Show, before her television debut in 1949 on the variety show, Hollywood on Television.

What did Betty White make from The Golden Girls? White starred as Rose Nylund on The Golden Girls for seven seasons and 180 half-hour episodes and from September 14, 1985 to May 9, 1992. The NBC show, which also starred Bea Arthur, Rue McClanahan, and Estelle Getty, revolved around four older women (three widows and one divorcée) as they shared a house in Miami. The house is owned by a widow named Blanche Devereaux (McClanahan), who is joined by fellow widow Rose Nylund (White) and divorcée Dorothy Zbornak (Arthur) after they both responded to an ad on the bulletin board of a local grocery store. The three women are joined by Sophia Petrillo (Getty), Dorothy’s 80-year-old widowed mother, after the retirement home she had been living in burned down.Betty White died on December 31, 2021. She was 99 years old. Her death, which came three weeks before her 100th birthday, was confirmed by her agent and friend, Jeff Witjas. “Even though Betty was about to be 100, I thought she would live forever,” Witjas said in a statement to People at the time. “I will miss her terribly and so will the animal world that she loved so much. I don’t think Betty ever feared passing because she always wanted to be with her most beloved husband Allen Ludden. She believed she would be with him again.”

How did Betty White die? White died in her sleep at her home in the Brentwood neighborhood of west Los Angeles at around 9:30 a.m. PT on December 31, 2021, according to TMZ. “Betty died peacefully in her sleep at her home early this morning,” Witjas told People. In an interview with People before her death, White expressed her excitement at turning 100 years old. “I’m so lucky to be in such good health and feel so good at this age,” she said at the time. “It’s amazing.” White also joked about her secret to a long life. “I try to avoid anything green. I think it’s working,” she said. Witjas also told People that he and White would often joke about her 101st birthday because they were so sure she’d live to be 100. “We kidded. I said, ‘Betty, we know you’re going to turn 100. Let’s start focusing on 101.’ I mean, that’s really how we kidded around,” he said. “She never made it a big deal.” Though White never made a “big deal” about her age, Witjas did recall White telling him, “Wow, that’s a pretty large number,” when she realized how close she was to turning 100 years old. He continued, “But we didn’t sit there and say, ‘Betty, how did you do it? What did you do?'” He also told People that White would often joke about her diet. (Source: stylecaster.com)
