Happy 90th Birthday Betty White
Here's wishing for a wonderful day for America's Grandma and my all time favorite TV star.
I echo your sentiments! Many more happy, healthy years, Ms. White!

Yes and probably at many other things she has said or done over the years.
Sue Ann: I hope I didn't bother you Dear.
Mary: I was in bed.
Sue Ann: Oh good then you were alone.
Her Adam and Eve palimony skit with Carson is a riot as were her appearances as Ellen on Mama's family. As much as I love her as Rose, Betty sure was fantastic at playing catty characters. Plus there was no great game show guest or player than Betty (for those of you who actually remember when game shows were on TV).
I do love Betty as a cattier lady--or at least one with a quicker wit. She's earned the right to some snappy repartee.
Speaking of game shows in the good old days, here's a poignant episode of the revised To Tell the Truth. Betty White isn't a panelist, but it's an interesting piece of really important modern history: the contestants are three women claiming to be Rosa Parks. Watch especially for how Nipsey Russell deals with the situation, and what he reveals about himself.
I love Betty! I loved her as the gma in You Again, but I grew up with her being on the Golden Girls, so, well... she'll always be Rose to me.
