Betty was born on 17 January 1922 in Oak Park, Illinois USA, to parents  Tess and Horace White: her father was an electrical engineer and her mom was a homemaker. Betty had no siblings, and at the age of two she was forced to move to live in Los Angeles along with her parents. For the TV fanatics, Betty is best known as a comedienne starring in TV’s “The Golden Girls” and “The Mary Tyler Moore Show”.

Betty White Net Worth $45 Million

Betty White started her career in the early 1950s and since that time the famous actress has appeared in many films and TV talk and game shows as well as series.  Betty started her career in television, while assisting at a TV station. Her debut as a producer of TV series is considered to be :Life with Elizabeth”, on which Betty worked in collaboration with George Tibbles who wrote the series. This debut not only increased the total size of Betty White’s net worth, but also made her one of the first female producers on TV in Hollywood.

The biggest revenues helping Betty White to increase her net worth have undoubtedly been the ones coming from “The Mary Tyler Moore Show”. She became very popular for portraying Sue Ann Nivens, a very witty character. Probably, it was the time when Betty’s great talent in comedy was noticed, since she won two Emmies for this role.

The cast of “The Golden Girls”, a sitcom that was aired in the 1980s, included such stars as Bea Arthur, Rue McClanahan, and Estelle Getty. Here Betty appeared as the very sweet, innocent and inexperienced character Rose Nylund. It was a character totally different from Sue Ann Nivens, however Betty managed that and won one more Emmy Award for this role. For the record, “The Golden Girls” was recognized as one of the most watchable and watched series during the 1980s.

Betty White boosted her net worth with her performances in “Golden Palace”, and “The John Larroquette Show”. Her career in the later stages ended with an Emmy Award for Betty. Betty is the star of “The Bold and the Beautiful”, “The Proposal”, and “Legal”. In “The Proposal” Betty appeared along with such stars as Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock. Her most recent TV project includes hosting “Saturday Night Live”.

Betty White’s later career has included appearances on “Petticoat Junction”, “The United States Steel Hour”, and “The Tonight Show”. Betty boosted the overall amount of her net worth while participating in the game show named “Password”. This show was fatal for Betty as she met there Allen Ludden who later becomes her husband, the third one, in fact.

In her persoanl life, Betty White has been married three times, to Dick Barker(1945–1945), Lane Allen (1947–1949), and Allen Ludden(1963–1981).

Betty White is known as a strong supporter of animal rights.

9 Met Mark Goodson, Bill Todman, Frank Wayne and Chester Feldman; when White was in New York, doing game shows.

15 Alongside Norman Lloyd, William Daniels, Dick Van Dyke, Ernest Borgnine, Mickey Rooney, Angela Lansbury, Edward Asner, Phyllis Diller, Adam West, Marla Gibbs, Larry Hagman, Florence Henderson, Christopher Lee, Shirley Jones and Alan Alda, White is one of the few screen actors who have lived into their 80s and/or 90s without ever either retiring from acting or having stopped getting work.
16 Friends with Shirley Jones, Gavin MacLeod, Florence Henderson, Mary Tyler Moore, Edward Asner, Cloris Leachman, Doris Roberts, Rue McClanahan, Charlotte Rae, Marla Gibbs, Della Reese, Norman Lloyd, Dick Van Dyke, Carol Burnett, Tom Poston, Susan Harris, Mark Goodson, Dick Clark, Bill Cullen, Doris Day, Barbara Walters, Richard Dawson, Alex Trebek, Robert Wagner, Carol Channing, Bob Eubanks, Joyce Bulifant, Ed Begley Jr., Vicki Lawrence, Ralph Helfer and Joan Rivers.

19 She has never had children.
20 Best known for her starring role as Rose Nylund on The Golden Girls (1985).
21 Of the four principal stars/actresses on The Golden Girls (1985), Betty White is the oldest (first born), as well as the last surviving. (In order: Betty White, born on January 17, 1922; Bea Arthur, born on May 13, 1922; Estelle Getty, born on July 25, 1923; and Rue McClanahan, born on February 21, 1934).
22 She is a member of the Unity Church.

27 Attended the same school as Jamie Luner.
28 Was portraying the conniving, gold-digging Ellen Harper, the niece of Rue McClanahan, who played the prudish Aunt Fran, On Mama's Family (1983) at the same time as they were working together on The Golden Girls (1985) in almost opposite roles.
29 Betty was originally considered for the role of the sexpot, "Blanche," on The Golden Girls (1985). However, Betty had already been the aggressive "Sue Ann Nivens" on Mary Tyler Moore (1970) and Rue McClanahan had played the introverted "Vivian" on Maude (1972). It was thought best not to have these two actresses reprise similar characters. Therefore, Betty got the part of naive "Rose Nylund" and Rue played the oversexed "Blanche".

36 Played the same character, Rose Nylund, on four different TV series: The Golden Palace (1992), The Golden Girls (1985), Nurses (1991), and Empty Nest (1988).
37 Moved to Los Angeles when she was only two years old.
38 Per her autobiography, White was named "Betty" at birth not "Elizabeth" because her parents did not want her to be saddled with any of the nicknames and derivatives of Elizabeth -- i.e. Beth, Liza, Ellie, etc.
39 Beloved frequent guest celebrity/panelist on numerous game shows, including every version of Password All-Stars (1961), The Hollywood Squares (1965), Match Game 73 (1973), The $10,000 Pyramid (1973), and countless others.

#Quote
1 On Bones (2005): I had seen the show, of course and heard it was one of the happiest sets in town. That's a great reputation to have and is well deserved.
2 I've worked with Morris Animal Foundation for more than 40 years now, and I'm so proud of all they've done to advance veterinary medicine for animals worldwide.
3 I'm having the time of my life and the fact that I'm still working - how lucky can you get? I'm 90 years old and still able to work as much as I do. That's a privilege.
4 Mary Tyler Moore (1970) was - it was my first big hit.
5 When I realized I could use Facebook as a way to communicate directly with my fans, I thought it would be a great idea.
6 Well, I mean, if a joke or humor is bawdy, it's got to be funny enough to warrant it. You can't just have it bawdy or dirty just for the sake of being that - it's got to be funny.
7 When we started in television, there was that magic box in the corner of the room, and 'Oh my gosh - look what it's doing!'
8 I just want to bring as much natural as I can. I'm not saying that people who take acting lessons are false. They're much better than I am, but it doesn't work for me.
9 If you get into a Broadway show and it doesn't work, you're a failure. And if it does work, you may be stuck for who knows how long. It just doesn't sound great to me!
10 I am the luckiest old broad on two feet if the truth were known. It's - but it all goes back to Mary Tyler Moore, The Golden Girls (1985) all those - actors love to take the credit. We couldn't do it without the writers.
11 I'm in the middle of my sixth book, which is about animals at the Los Angeles Zoo.
12 I'm the luckiest broad on two feet, I'll tell you that. They say once a woman passes 40 she doesn't get any good parts, so I'm blessed.
13 I was one of the first women producers in Hollywood.
14 I love Cadillacs and name them after birds.
15 I stayed in show business to pay for my animal business.
16 I'm not what you might call sexy, but I'm romantic. Let's put it that way.
17 I like double entendre because then the people who get it enjoy it, and the people who don't get it don't know about it.
18 The audience today has heard every joke. They know every plot. They know where you're going before you even start. That's a tough audience to surprise, and a tough audience to write for. It's much more competitive now, because the audience is so much more - I want to say 'sophisticated.'
19 I have the backbone of an eel.
20 I don't get political.
21 I think that a show that is as successful as The Golden Girls (1985) is a once-in-a-lifetime thing. If you don't feel proud to be part of a show that has that kind of track record, then shame on you, because that's a privilege.
22 I was an only child and I had a mother and father who were just - there wasn't a straight man in the house, and I mean that in a very nice way. They were fun, and we would laugh a lot.
23 It's been phenomenal, but everybody keeps congratulating me on my resurgence and my big comeback. I haven't been away, guys. I've been working steadily for the last 63 years.
24 Of course, nobody's tearing my door down. If you're successful you're going to intimidate and scare off the people you'd like to spend time with. They're not going to approach you. And the ones who do are often there because you are a celebrity.
25 I cannot stand the people who get wonderful starts in show business and who abuse it. Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen, for example, although there are plenty of others, too. They are the most blessed people in the world, and they don't appreciate it.
26 You know what the problem that animal activists sometimes have? They only concentrate on the heartbreaking things to the point where the general public thinks, 'Oh, here comes those animal folks again and I'm going to hear all the things I don't want to hear.'
27 I'm in the acting business. That's the ego business.
28 Take personal responsibility. A lot of people go, 'Well, I'll get a dog because I have a kid and a kid needs a dog.' And it doesn't work out for that dog and the dog is on the street.
29 I have my golden retriever now, Pontiac. He's a career-change guide dog from Guide Dogs for the Blind.
30 It's fun once in a while to do a serious part but I really enjoy doing comedy because I love to laugh.
31 A lot of people think this is a goodie two-shoes talking. But we do have a tendency to complain rather than celebrating who we are. I learned at my mother's knee it's better to appreciate what's happening... I think we kind of talk ourselves into the negative sometimes.
32 I kid around a lot, but pranks are not my best strength!
33 I'm so compulsive about stuff, I know if I had ever gotten pregnant, of course, that would have been my whole focus. But I didn't choose to have children because I'm focused on my career. And I just don't think, as compulsive as I am, that I could manage both.
34 I like bawdy humor. I love bawdy humor, but not dirty humor.
35 The writers are the stars of every really successful sitcom.
36 I really don't care with whom you sleep. I just care what kind of a decent human being you are.
37 My mother and dad were big animal lovers, too. I just don't know how I would have lived without animals around me. I'm fascinated by them - both domestic pets and the wild community. They just are the most interesting things in the world to me, and it's made such a difference in my lifetime.
38 I've enjoyed the opposite sex a lot. Always have. Always will.
39 I go out to the kitchen to feed the dog, but that's about as much cooking as I do.
40 I think it's your mental attitude. So many of us start dreading age in high school and that's a waste of a lovely life. 'Oh... I'm 30, oh, I'm 40, oh, 50.' Make the most of it.
41 If everyone took personal responsibility for their animals, we wouldn't have a lot of the animal problems that we do. I'm a big spay-and-neuter supporter. Don't have babies if you're not going to take care of those babies. We don't need more. We just need to take care of the ones we have. Take responsibility and breathe kindness.
42 I enjoy being busy, I really do. Remember, I'm the stub end of the railroad. I have no family, so I'm not taking busy time away from people that I should be spending it with. So I'm just relaxing and enjoying it.
43 A lady likes to be complimented on her looks, her eyes, her figure. But the personality comments are much appreciated.
44 I don't seem to require a lot of sleep. I just - if I get four, five good hours, I'm fine. But sleeping is sort of dull. There's a lot of other good stuff that you can do without just lying down and closing your eyes.
45 If you have one good series, you know, it's a blessing. Two good series is unusual. Three is a phenomenon, but right now, I'm working with these wonderful women on Hot in Cleveland (2010) and Valerie Bertinelli, and Wendie Malick and Jane Leeves are like, it's like the buddy-ship we had on The Golden Girls (1985) and Mary Tyler Moore.
46 Retirement is not in my vocabulary. They aren't going to get rid of me that way.
47 It's a little known fact that one in three family pets gets lost during its lifetime, and approximately 9 million pets enter shelters each year. That's why it's a wonderful thing to get your pet microchipped and registered with your contact information because then they can be located and the owners can track where their pets are.
48 Wendie Malick and Valerie Bertinelli make fun of me, but I take care of my health - I don't abuse it.
49 I have a two-story house and a bad memory, so I'm up and down those stairs all the time. That's my exercise.
50 A good friend of mine was Lucy Ball. Her mother and my mother were best friends.
51 Long ago, I did a five-and-a-half-hour-a-day, six-day-a-week talk show for four years, early on, in Los Angeles - local show. And when you are on that many hours with no script, you know, you get very comfortable, maybe overly comfortable with that small audience.
52 I don't care who anybody sleeps with. If a couple has been together all that time - and there are gay relationships that are more solid than some heterosexual ones - I think it's fine if they want to get married. I don't know how people can get so anti-something.
53 Wilderness is harder and harder to find these days on this beautiful planet, and we're abusing our planet to the point of almost no return.
54 Hot dogs and Red Vines and potato chips and French fries are my favorite foods.
55 Doing drama is, in a sense, easier. In doing comedy, if you don't get that laugh, there's something wrong.
56 Animals are near and dear to my heart, and I've devoted my life to trying to improve their lives.
57 When I pontificate, it sounds so, you know, Oh, well, she's preaching. I'm not preaching, but I think maybe I learned it from my animal friends. Kindness and consideration of somebody besides yourself. I think that keeps you feeling young. I really do.
58 I just make it my business to get along with people so I can have fun. It's that simple.
59 I always wanted to be a zookeeper when I was growing up, and I've wound up a zookeeper! I've been working with the Los Angeles Zoo for 45 years! I'm the luckiest old broad on two feet because my life is divided absolutely in half - half animals and half show business. You can't ask for better than two things you love the most.
60 I'm a big cockeyed optimist. I try to accentuate the positive as opposed to the negative.
61 I love words. Sudoku I don't get into, I'm not into numbers that much, and there are people who are hooked on that. But crossword puzzles, I just can't - if I get a puppy and I paper train him and I put the - if all of a sudden I'd open the paper and there's a crossword puzzle - 'No, no, you can't go on that, honey. I'll take it.'
62 I had to make a major decision with myself because I just don't think you can do both: try to have a baby career and raise it and have a baby baby and raise it. And to try to do justice to either one. It was a very conscious decision on my part not to have children - which I have never regretted.
63 During the Depression, my dad made radios to sell to make extra money. Nobody had any money to buy the radios, so he would trade them for dogs. He built kennels in the backyard, and he cared for the dogs.
64 I may be a senior, but so what? I'm still hot.
65 I don't know where I learned elephants like their tongues slapped. Whatever turns you on.
66 The bottom line is, I'm blessed with good health. On top of that, I don't go around thinking 'Oh, I'm 90, I better do this or I better do that.' I'm just Betty. I'm the same Betty that I've always been. Take it or leave it.
67 Animals don't lie. Animals don't criticize. If animals have moody days, they handle them better than humans do.
68 If you're walking with your lady on the sidewalk, I still like to see a man walking street-side, to protect the lady from traffic. I grew up with that, and I hate to see something like that get lost. I still like to see that a man opens the door. I like those touches of chivalry that are fast disappearing.
69 Why retire from something if you're loving it so much and enjoying it so much, and you're blessed with another group of people to work with like the gang on 'Hot in Cleveland?' Why would I think of retiring? What would I do with myself?
70 You can always tell about somebody by the way they put their hands on an animal.
71 Anger tears me up inside... My own... or anyone else's.
72 I didn't know what Facebook was, and now that I do know what it is, I have to say, it sounds like a huge waste of time.
73 I am interested in a lot of things - not just show business and my passion for animals. I try to keep current in what's going on in the world. I do mental exercises. I don't have any trouble memorizing lines because of the crossword puzzles I do every day to keep my mind a little limber. I don't sit and vegetate.
74 Animal lover that I am, a cougar I am not.
75 I've worked with the Los Angeles Zoo for 45 years, and we have this magnificent photographer, Tad Motoyama. He takes these wonderful, wonderful animal pictures. All through the years he's given me copies of these pictures. Well, I have all these gorgeous ones, so I said, 'Tad, I want to do a book with your picture on one side.'
76 I'm not into animal rights. I'm only into animal welfare and health. I've been with the Morris Animal Foundation since the '70s. We're a health organization. We fund campaign health studies for dogs, cats, lizards and wildlife. I've worked with the L.A. Zoo for about the same length of time. I get my animal fixes!
77 I think older women still have a full life.
78 I think a lot of people like hidden-camera shows where they think they're spying on somebody who doesn't know they're looking at them. And nobody takes it seriously - you either enjoy it and get a laugh out of the reactions or not.
79 Don't try to be young. Just open your mind. Stay interested in stuff. There are so many things I won't live long enough to find out about, but I'm still curious about them. You know people who are already saying, 'I'm going to be 30 - oh, what am I going to do?' Well, use that decade! Use them all!
80 It's your outlook on life that counts. If you take yourself lightly and don't take yourself too seriously, pretty soon you can find the humor in our everyday lives. And sometimes it can be a lifesaver.
81 [on Bea Arthur] Bea was not that fond of me. I don't know what I ever did but she was not that thrilled with me. But I loved Bea and I admired her.
82 The audience today has heard every joke. They know every plot. They know where you're going before you even start. That's a tough audience to surprise, and a tough audience to write for. It's much more competitive now, because the audience is so much more - I want to say sophisticated.
83 I'm in the acting business. That's the ego business. When you get offers, the way things are going now you've gotta enjoy it. You've gotta take to time to taste it, and appreciate it and make the most of it.Those offers aren't going to come around all the time. By the time I'm 100...
84 [At 90] I can credit my folks for my genes. That said, I can't get over that at this age I don't feel this age. I'm not trying to be any younger. I'm not lying about my age. If I were lying about my age, I would say I was 89. I'm just at one of those good times in one's life. I'm at one of the high spots. I'm healthy enough to enjoy it. I'm surrounded by friends I adore. Isn't that kind of the best way to sign off?
