For decades, she’s been making us laugh, burned us, and proven to be the ultimate Queen of Sass. Her secret? Making life her b**ch.
With “celebrities” having their fifteen minutes of fame every day, it’s hard to think of someone with a more solid career than Betty White’s. At ninety-seven years old, she’s still incredibly relatable and current for the newer generations, and the secret to all that, my friends, is her sass and coolness. And, of course, the fact that no one can deliver such savage, tongue-in-cheek comments like our lovely Betty.
With a career spanning several decades, she's somehow managed to adapt and evolve as comedy and showbiz change, and for that, we love her so much. Her secret? Living her best life at all times, and making life itself her b***h. Here are some of the most hilarious moments and lessons we should all learn from the great Betty White.
Make vodka and playing with animals your #1 hobby
In a 2011 interview with David Letterman, the host asks Betty what she likes doing in her free time, to which she answered: “I like almost anything, play with animals mostly. Vodka is kind of a hobby.”
Your sass can make you hot
Trust Betty and her awesome “I’m Still Hot” video, in which she definitely outshines her young companion. By the way, Betty is the only one who can“rock our worlds with her cheesecake!”
Love-burn relationships are gold
Her speech after receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award at the SAG Awards, given to her by Sandra Bullock, is gold. Take a look at the savage moment: “Thank you from the bottom of my heart and the bottom of my bottom… This lovely lady, she’s such a wonderful one. And with all the wonderful things that have happened to her isn’t it heartening to see how far a girl as plain as she is can go?”
Hotdogs and French fries are the secrets to a long life
Not to mention alcohol, which, according to Betty, can extend your life. Exercise? Memory loss is key, so you can go up and down constantly.
Learning to say no is sometimes overrated
When asked at the Lopez Tonight Show how come she’s been getting more work in recent years than in her “glory days” (which, by the way, are still running), she just said it’s because she’s “such a whore, I can’t say no.”
Beauty sleep is crucial
As one of the top ten Betty White tips for living a long and happy life, our sweet queen of sass recommends getting at least 8 hours of beauty sleep, or“9 if you’re ugly!” Oh, snap!
Never ever hold your thoughts
Perhaps what makes her such a funny and irreverent character is the way she doesn't care and always tells people what she thinks of them.
“Make night appointments with Mr. Johnny Walker”
Because there's never enough booze.
There’s nothing I can say right now that can top her savage wisdom, so let’s round up this list with one more gif to lighten up our day, shall we?
