Our dear Betty White died before she could reach her 100th birthday in just a couple of weeks. Social media is going viral with #BettyWhite and #BettyWhitechallenge. Someone came up with the wonderful idea of donating $5 to an animal shelter in Betty’s name on January 17, her birthday. If you love all that Betty gave the entertainment world and the animal world, please consider donating.
“She’d come on my show, [The Carol Burnett Show], and if there was a tinge of risqué humor in one of our sketches, she’d roll with it and make it even funnier and add a little wink to show that she was thinking of something sexy,” says Carol Burnett. “She’s not a stand-up. She’s not a jokester. It’s the way she can twist a line to get a laugh.”
(Many thanks to Lenora R. for the article.)
The event will offer a look into the beloved star’s behind-the-scenes life, her relationship with her office staff and her efforts as an animal advocate.
The movie event will screen in 900 movie theaters nationwide on Jan. 17, 2022, the day of White’s centenary. Screenings will begin at local times of 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tickets are now available for purchase. (Today Show)
