Betty White, whose television career spanned more than 80 years, has died, TMZ and People reported. She was 99 years old.
Born Jan. 17, 1922, in Oak Park, Illinois, White is considered to be a trailblazer of television.
Her career was longer than any other female entertainer, having worked in the industry since 1939.
White is famously known for her iconic sitcom roles.
She played the sweet, but salacious, Sue Ann Nivens on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show."
White probably is best known for her role of the sweet and naive Rose Nylund on 1980s hit "The Golden Girls."
She was a staple of many popular TV game shows of the 1960s, leading to the title of "First Lady of Game Shows."
White earned eight Emmy Awards, three Screen Actors Guild Awards, three American Comedy Awards and one Grammy Award.
She was the first woman to win an Emmy Award for Outstanding Game Show Host for "Just Men!" in 1983.
Off-screen, White was known for her love of animals, working with several organizations whose work focused on animal rights and welfare.
White said her secret to a long life was: "Don’t look ahead and … try not to look back."

She was in great health. Like, better than Madden, who was said to be healthy also. This just blows on so many levels. I won’t make 99 though…so she did really well. And she did exactly what she wanted when she wanted to.

There were many interviews and stories about her in the past few days with I’m sure many more coming ahead of her 100th birthday in 2 weeks. People Magazine has her on the cover this week. Eerily similar to Madden in how much talk there was about them right before they died. White said she was in great health and was joking that the key to a long life is avoiding vegetables in the interview I read just yesterday. But if you gotta die it’s great that she died suddenly near 100 with no decline in health or mental capacity at all.

From other indications, Madden was on a death watch the last 6 months.  He was deteriorating fast.

Never heard that before. Is the suspicion because she never remarried?

I think it's more simply because of the fact that she was a staunch supporter of LGBTQ rights so they claimed her as one of their own. And in this world if you aren't against things like gay marriage then you must be gay.

When asked why she never remarried, Betty simply said "when you've had the best, who needs the rest ? "

She supported gay rights because her stepdaughter is a lesbian. She also supported animal rights, but that doesn't mean she wanted to bang Mr. Ed.

here's a link to an article that mentions her stepdaughter

This is likely the completely right answer.

Plus some people love their spouses enough that they really don't get the feels for anyone else again. More common a long time ago, but White lost her husband a long time ago.

Right.  I think it was her support for the gay community.  That is what it seems to me. There was also some third or fourth hand gossip from like 55 years ago.  
I just never heard that before.

Exactly. If she was gay or bi, she would’ve just said so in the last 10 years. There would be literally no reason not to. She was already a huge “ally” as the kids like to say, and if anything it would’ve helped her career, not that she had to worry about that at 90. Not everyone is fucking gay. And not everyone from the 1600s was fucking trans. These people love to go back in time and write their silly fan fiction about people from history, even though all history is bad and everyone born before 1986 is literally Hitler. I just hope that no one finds out that Betty White made a comment that could possibly be construed to be a gay joke on a game show in 1955 and now she needs to be posthumously canceled.

I don’t think you will find out anything bad about Betty. Never heard anyone say anything but great things. This wasn’t someone who was known for saying distasteful things about anyone. The most you might find is Hollywood squares appearance or match game where they would make suggestive jokes. I have watched repeats of those old game show and it’s ridiculous how those shows were considered entertaining. McLean Stevenson of Mash attempting to be funny. I think Betty appeared on some of those shows when she was on the Mary Tyler Moore show. She was great on that show. Playing someone totally opposite of herself. I don’t think anything stupid or embarrassing will be found.

SNL aired the episode where Betty hostedl last night.  It was really fun. About 10 years ago. That was probably the last cast of SNL that was really funny. Betty joked that Facebook was a waste of time for her if she wanted to reconnect with friends. She said the only way she could do that was with a ouija board. :)

There's more to this than meets the eye Died at 99. Invert that it's 66. We all know what that is. Died on the 31st. Invert that it's 13. FRIDAY the 13th!!! It's right in front of you sheeple. The Illuminati claims another one of their own.

Betty White watched Allen Ludden die of cancer around 1980/1981. He suffered tremendously, as do so many people that die of cancer. My mom suffered horribly for a month before dying; Ludden lived 18 months before succumbing. Betty White has said that he was the love of her life and it completely broke her heart to watch him suffer and die. She said that she didn't feel that she could go through that again, and from what I've seen, she never even had a boyfriend after this point in time. My aunt did the same thing, her husband died in 1982 when she was about 58, and she stayed single until the day of her death in 2009. She wasn't gay or bi, and neither was Betty White.

So for reasons that I am surely not smart enough to understand, Betty White is the latest QAnon conspiracy theory. She died 17 days before her 100th birthday, and Q is the 17th letter of the alphabet and the most important number in the Q cult. So that means…something.

Also, a comedy video from 2017 went viral in which Betty White jokes about staying alive by drinking the blood of virgins, so that’s totally in the Q wheelhouse about what they think about Hillary, Tom Hanks, etc.  Clearly she slipped up and admitted there was a Hollywood elite pedophile sacrifice club by accident. What a blunder! 

And finally, they claim Betty White got the booster shot days before she died and that’s clearly what killed her, otherwise she would’ve lived forever.

When you add all this up, it clearly means…I’m not sure but it’s huge and THEY don’t want you to know about it!

I'm happy no one has taken over her Twitter after she died as happened to Stan Lee.
