The Betty White Renaissance truly began with Hot in Cleveland—the TV Land show netted White an Emmy nomination and a pair of SAGs, while revitalizing the careers of several '90s treasures, including Dan Cortese's pecs.
When She Hosted 'SNL'
She likes to sit, and lean, and sit! She's 90! And at 90—well, 88, White became the oldest host in Saturday Night Live history, proving that social media campaigns are good for something after all. For her comedic efforts, Betty won her fifth Primetime Emmy, nearly 60 years after her first of 21 nominations.
That Time She Took a Hit Like a G.D. Champ
Betty White had to work seven seasons with Bea Arthur, the toughest quarterback television has ever known, so you think some twentysomething punk is going to take her out? Think again. Think.
The Dab Dabbed Round the Dabbing World
Fun story: Betty White invented the Dab, not Cam Newton, as anyone who follows these things would think. So yes, Betty White is cooler than noted hater Paul Ryan, no matter what he says.
All This Prime Beef She's Still Pulling
Betty White has probably had more man-action in the last five years than you've had in you entire life—but don't hate the player, hate the game 'cause Betty's been a champ for nearly a century.
Sometimes a lady needs a cartoonishly large glass of wine to end the day. Or start it. Or continue it midway—hey, when you roll with Betty White there are no rules, no judgments.
All These Fucks She's Not Giving
When you've lived as long as Betty White, and slayed for as long as Betty White, you've earned the right to do pretty much whatever the hell you want, and Betty's been exercising that right for years.
That Time Bradley Cooper Assaulted Her Face
Betty White made Bradley Cooper's year/life when she allowed the Oscar-nominated A-lister to get all up in dem lips during SNL's 40th Anniversary Special.
Her Cole Porter Tease
What you know about this "glimpse of stocking looked on as something shocking" moment? Like I said: Hate. The. Game.
The Enduring Appeal of "The Golden Girls"
While Betty White may well outlive us all, The Golden Girls, it's safe to say, will still be on the air when our children's children are in the ground. With a puppet show, an upcoming themed restaurant, and the endless parodies, tributes, toys, memes, etc., Betty and the Girls will live on literally forever.
