Betty White has turned 97 and she is celebrating
it in a way only she could.
Betty White’s career started in the late
1930’s and she’s well known for her part
in hit sitcoms like The Mary Tyler Moore Show
and The Golden Girls.
Betty has always celebrated her birthdays
with a lot of flair, for example in 2012 when
she turned 90 she had a TV special on NBC
called Betty White’s 90th birthday: A tribute
to America’s Golden Girl.
A representative for White said “Betty is
feeling great, She has the absolute best sense
It seems that she celebrated her birthday
by playing poker and eating cake.
Which in my honest opinion, is a pretty nice
way to celebrate your bday.
Last September, White went on stage at the
2018 Emmy Awards and had a few things to say
about her age.
“Somebody said something the other day about
first lady of television, and I took it as
a big compliment,” And then she delivered
the punchline “And then I heard her talking
to her daughter a little later, and she said,
‘First lady, she’s that old.
She was the first one way back.’
Betty also said the following about her amazing
career which is still going strong.
“It’s incredible that I’m still in this
business and you are still putting up with
me … It’s incredible that you can stay
in a career this long and still have people
put up with you.
I wish they did that at home.”
Betty, also had the following to say to the
next generation “Enjoy life, Accentuate
the positive, not the negative,” She followed
it up with “It sounds so trite, but a lot
of people will pick out something to complain
about, rather than say, ‘Hey, that was great!’
It’s not hard to find great stuff if you
Betty White is loved by a lot of people and
Ryan Reynolds is one of them.
He went on Instagram and posted a picture
of the two together and congratulated her
by saying the following:
“I don’t usually wish ex-girlfriends Happy
But Betty’s special.
Happy Birthday to the one and only, @bettymwhite.
Cheers to another year of ‘Tinis and Weenies!”
Ryan was referencing an interview Betty did
where she told people her secrets to long
and happy life.
Which are martinis and hotdogs.
Reynolds played White’s grandson in the 2009
comedy “The Proposal,” and the two have been
friends ever since.
Happy Birthday Betty White and I hope you
get many more.
