Betty White Biography

Betty White produced and starred in the pioneering sitcom "Life with Elizabeth" and was a popular TV personality throughout the 50s and 60s. A rabid game player in real life, Betty was a much sought-after game show contestant. It was during an appearance on "Password" where she first met the man who would become her husband and the love of her life, Allen Ludden.

The 1970s saw Betty win two Emmys for her role as the man-hungry "Happy Homemaker" on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show." Betty earned another Emmy in the mid-80s for her role as Rose on "The Golden Girls." She made history when she hosted "Saturday Night Live" in 2010 at the age of 88 - and won yet another Emmy. Although she continues to attain roles and accolades, Betty's true love is animals; she has been a passionate animal advocate throughout her career.
