    She was 99 years old, just a few weeks shy of what would have been her 100th birthday.

    She was Sue Ann, she was Rose, she was Elka, she was so many other indelible characters. But most of all she was our Betty. So sad. The last of the stars of The Mary Tyler Show to pass away (of the regular cast members). The last of the four Golden Girls to pass away ):

    This is heartbreaking to me because Betty White was an amazing actress and a huge lover and advocate of animals. A lot of people do not know that Betty White had a show in the 1950s and had Arthur Duncan, an African-American entertainer on her show. Stations in the south wanted Betty White to get rid of Arthur Duncan and Betty refused to do so and said “live with it.

    I discovered the Golden Girls in 2007 during a very depressive time. They all slowly started to pass. Now the final Golden Girl is gone.

    We hosted a fun interview with Betty White back in 2011. Included in the article below along with some great photo galleries:

    I’m a huge Mary Tyler Moore fan and gosh! what a sad year. (loved Betty in everything, though). A true TV icon.

    Betty brought so much light to the world. She led an extraordinary life. See you in the stars, dear Betty.

    Looooovve Betty White yet I couldn’t believe she won back-to-back Emmys over Rhoda’s little sister (Julie Kavner as Brenda Morgenstern) in the mid-1970s. (That’s how much of an awards show junkie I was even then.) Happy 2022!! Health, peace, and happiness for all of us.

    I cried like a baby when I found out. Like it broke me. The one person that just was so perfect and funny and nice.

    It is interesting that there were some years where there were three nominees in some years, four nominees in some areas, and five nominees in others. Betty White was a force as Sue Ann Nivens. I am glad that she received Emmy love for that role. Julie Kavner did finally win in 1978.
