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.Read more ›
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.
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!
A superb read!!!
White begins the book with a brief description of how she grew up in California (an only child, with “the best parents ever invented”), where she was among the first of many stars who attended Beverly Hills High School, aspiring to become an opera singer. After four years with the American Women’s Voluntary Service during World War II, she launched into show business. White began her television career back in the days when few homes had television sets, when many programs were produced locally, when most national shows were filmed in New York and viewed on the west coast as fuzzy videotapes, when performers often lacked a script, and television hosts had to memorize lengthy commercials and present them live.Read more ›
