Beloved actress, comedian, legend and American icon, Betty White, has died at age ninety-nine (99), just weeks before her milestone 100th birthday on 17th January 2022. According to TMZ, Betty passed away at her home on Friday morning (31st December 2021).
She had the longest running career in TV as a female prior to her death — having starred in multiple shows over the past eight (8) decades, starting in 1939. Betty is perhaps most famous for her lead role as Rose Nylund in "The Golden Girls," which ran from 1985 to 1992 and is still beloved today by many across the globe. She was the last surviving main cast member of the iconic television series.
TMZ notes that she got her start in radio in the 1940’s, making appearances on "Blondie," "The Great Gildersleeve," and "This is Your FBI." She eventually got her own radio program. In 1949, Betty began working on a televised variety show with Al Jarvis called "Hollywood on Television" which she later co-hosted — before breaking out into more TV roles in the 1950’s and beyond.
With 115 acting credits to her name, Betty has been in productions such as "Life with Elizabeth," "Date with the Angels," "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," "The Betty White Show," "The Love Boat," "Mama's Family," "The Golden Palace," "Ladies Man," "That '70s Show," "Higglytown Heroes," "Boston Legal," "The Bold and the Beautiful," "Pound Puppies," "Hot in Cleveland," and many other shows and films.
She has received numerous accolades over the course of her career, including multiple Emmys, Screen Actors Guild Awards, American Comedy Awards and even a Grammy. She was nominated for several Golden Globes and has also been honored with numerous Lifetime Achievement Awards.
During the Pandemic, Betty had been extra cautious, mostly staying at home and passing the time by reading, watching TV and doing crossword puzzles.
Rest in peace with your cheesecakes, Betty.
