Betty, Betty White Biography


Betty Marion White was born in January of 1922 in Oak Park, Illinois. Her legal name is Betty, not the typical nickname for Elizabeth. During the Great Depression, her family moved to Los Angeles, California. Although White originally wanted to be a forest ranger, women were not allowed to work in that position at the time. Instead, White turned to writing, then performing, and decided in high school to become an actress.

After being told by movie studios that she was “unphotogenic”, White then turned her attention to radio, where her looks did not matter. She began by making background noises, reading commercials, and doing bit parts for $5 a show. White went on to perform in almost every acting or singing venue there was, including theater, television, radio, live television, and movies. In her 75 year long career, White has won 7 Emmy Awards, 3 American Comedy Awards, 3 Screen Actor Guild Awards, a Grammy, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

White is perhaps best known for her roles as the empty headed Sue Ann Nivens on the Mary Tyler Moore show, and as well as the naive Rose on The Golden Girls. Sometimes called the First Lady of Game Shows, White has hosted a dozen different game shows, including Password and Match Game. This ageless comedian is the only woman to receive an Emmy nomination in all comedic categories. She also holds the record for the longest time span between nominations – her first in 1951 and her last (to date anyway) in 2011 – an amazing 60 years.

Most people are unaware that White is also an accomplished writer, with more than 7 books to her credit. In 2013, the Guiness Book of World Records recognized White with the award for being the longest female entertainer in television history.

White still lives on her own, unassisted, in her $10 million Los Angeles mansion. Her current net worth is estimated at $45 million, however, since this timeless star is still working, her true lifetime net worth is anyone’s guess.

Carrie Frances Fisher was born in October of 1956 to famous actor/singer parents Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher. Her parents divorced when she was 2.

Although she went on to perform in numerous other movies, including Ages of God, The Blues Brothers, and Hannah and Her Sisters, it was the Star Wars Trilogy that she is best known for.

This multi-talented actress also published numerous book, most of them semi-autobiographical. Her book Postcards From the Edge, was made into a very successful film starring Meryl Streep. Other books include Surrender the Pink, Wishful Drinking, and Delusions of Grandma.

Married for a short time to singer Paul Simon, she gave birth to a daughter, Billie Lourd, in 1992, after divorcing Simon. Although Fisher describes her child’s father, talent agent Bryan Lourd, as her second husband, the two never actually married.Fisher was loved for her bluntness regarding her bi-polar disorder, drug addiction, and electroshock therapy. Her therapy dog, a French bulldog named Gary, accompanied the actress everywhere.

Unfortunately, Fisher suffered a fatal heart attack while flying from London to Los Angeles. Although valiant efforts were made to save her life, her daughter reported that her mother had passed away December 27th, 2016.

Fisher’s mother, Debbie Reynolds, also passed away, 24 hours after her daughter, from a stroke. Mother and daughter will be buried together January 6th,2017, in what has been described as an “ultra private” service at Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Los Angeles, California.
