Format: Paperback
Not many celebrities can say they are enjoying a renaissance and resurgence in their careers at the tender age of 88, but Betty White is not your every day celebrity. In 2010 Betty became the oldest performer to host "Saturday Night Live" (for which she won an Emmy), plus she continues to work in movies and primetime TV, most recently in TV Land's "Hot In Cleveland". She also had a memorable role on the soap opera "The Bold and the Beautiful" and she continues to appear in commercials. Suddenly Betty White is everywhere.

With a career that has spanned sixty years on television, Betty White continues to shine and is an example to other celebrities who have reached that certain age that it doesn't matter how old you are; just keep working and love what your doing.

In this insightful biography that was published way back in 1995, Betty describes her life in television and how she got started in the business. Eventually it wasn't long before she became famous for being the celebrity who appeared regularly on game and talk shows, working with Jack Parr, Johnny Carson, and Allen Lunden, with whom she married. Eventually Betty did a guest-part on "The Carol Burnett Show", became famous for her role as man hungry Sue Ann Nivens on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show", and to a whole new generation of fans played naive Rose Nyland on the 1980's/1990's sitcom "The Golden Girls".

In these pages Betty discusses how she got her two most famous roles on two of the most beloved comedies in TV history, how it was like to work with the giants in the industry, and how and why those beloved shows came to an end.

There is much more too on these pages on the the wonderful life of a lady who never slows down.

Format: Paperback
I find it amazing that someone who has been on tv as long as Betty White has managed to reinvent herself so many times. Truthfully, 'reinvent' is probably an unfair description. White appears to have the humor and creativity and vigor to remain current when her contemporaries are passing time at the Motion Picture Country Home or Forest Lawn.
This book is a quick and humorous (though sometimes poignant) look at Betty's life seen through her career in television and her 'third time's the charm' marriage to tv host Allen Ludden. It is loaded with anecdotal stories about the people she has worked with, her own career and personal history, and is imbued with her own personal charm and vivacious personality. I liked this book a lot from the perspecive that she sailed through her story without speedbumps and drama and brought her reader on a long lived tour of television and performing without missing a beat or a punchline. Her account of meeting Allen Ludden and their marriage was very touching and definitely revealing while it also gave me a sense that the tv Betty was pretty close to the private Betty.
This is a good book that will keep your interest and bring back a lot of fond memories of some of the best comedy tv has offered.

I remember watching Golden Girls and Mama's Family reruns with my grandma as a kid, but not knowing much about Betty White, the actress or the woman. So imagine my surprise when I came across her memoir (originally published in 1995) and discovered that she'd had so many television accomplishments under her belt well before her roles as Rose from GG and Ellen on MF.

Born an only child to two loving and encouraging parents, Betty worked as a model, stage actress, and joined the American Women's Voluntary Services before making radio appearances in the 40's. She made the jump from radio to tv as host of Hollywood on Television, one of the first live variety shows. It was also daily and there were no holiday breaks, but Betty loved the work too much to mind. So much so that she also starred as the title character in the 50's sitcom Life With Elizabeth, a later show titled Date with the Angels, and participated in a slew of game shows.

Betty also found time for love and was happiest with her third husband Allen Ludden. You can tell how much she loved him and how painful it was losing him, but it's not written in an overly dramatic kind of way.

Betty seems like a really down to earth woman who's seen alot, done even more, but is always humble and thankful for everything. To be in your eighties, in good health, and make such an incredible comeback is a major blessing. Keep goin' til the wheels fall off, BW!

This book is like a history lesson on how THE television industry began and hearing it from Betty makes it all the more fun!!! She is witty, humorous, and very very genuine about all the things that have happened to her and how her life has revolved around TV.
A superb read!!!

I want to be like Betty White when I grow up. Her voice is apparent through her funny, touching and informative biography. Packed with lots of TV and Hollywood history, as well as tales from her various jobs in entertainment. Many touching moments about her marriage to Allen Ludden. Overall, a good read.

Betty White--a true television icon--has written an account of her life and the industry in which she worked (and continues to work) for so many years. Her book is everything one would hope for from an actress of her stature!
