If anyone makes 90 look like the new 60 it is you, you fabulous, funny, frisky old broad.
I’m really enjoying your latest project ‘Hot in Cleveland’.
Of course I adored your character Rose in ‘The Golden Girls’ and Sue Ann Nivens on ‘The Mary Tyler Moore Show’. Rose was so delightfully naive and Sue Ann was so deliciously wicked.
I found some videos of ‘Life With Elizabeth’; I didn’t know you had your own series from 1952 to 1955. I first saw you on ‘Password’ with your husband Allen Ludden. I love how you talk about your 18 year marriage to Allen with such warmth and romance.
I know that you won 5 Emmys and were nominated for many more awards. I think you deserve an award for just about everything you do.
I’m looking forward to NBC’s tribute to you airing this Monday, January 16th. I hope they gave you lots of goodies and boy toys.
Perhaps all you want is money for your animals. I smile every time you tell an interviewer that you have to keep working to care for your animals. The work you’re doing with the Morris Animal Foundation has saved many animal’s lives.
At least you sometimes get off your 90 year old feet to sit at a keyboard and do some writing. I found 45 titles attributed to you.
I love you Betty. I hope you keep on doing all that you love for a long, long time.
Happy Birthday Betty
One last thing Betty, when the studio made you pose like this didn't you just want to start dancing on the pole? Bet you did.
