Dave!Anybody who has read this blog for any length of time knows how much I love Betty White. Fortunately for the world at large, Betty shows no sign of slowing down and is making frequent guest appearances on various shows.

This past Friday, Betty was her usual brilliant self on a total crap show that I never watch called Complete Savages (directed by Mel Gibson, of all people... yes, the Mel Gibson). Of course, she totally owned. This time she played a horrible old lady with one leg who lives next door to the Savage family. Leave it to Betty to elevate an unwatchable show to watchability.

It's Betty!

Adding to my Betty high, DVD Talk has posted a short (but no less terrific) interview with her on the release of the first season of Golden Girls on DVD, which you can read here.

Here's some previous Bettylicious posting on Blogography...

We need more Betty.

    Tell me what it is you love about Miss Betty 🙂

    Gee. Where do I start? First of all, she is a generous person who has worked tirelessly to support animal charities… giving voice to those who have none. In addition, every interview I’ve ever seen with her (and I watch every one I can find) has shown her to be kind, caring, witty, and charming. She’s definitely somebody I would like to meet.

    On top of all that, she’s an absolutely brilliant actress. She has never allowed herself to be typecast, and can play any role thrown her way. A scheming nymphomaniac on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, a naive ditz on Golden Girls, a foul-mouthed geriatric on Lake Placid, a greedy liar on The Practice… you name it, she can do it… and has been doing it for nearly 60 years.

    Anybody who can last this long in Hollywood and not only survive, but excel… WHILE keeping herself so down to earth… well, you gotta love somebody like that! And I do. 🙂

    Aww, I love Betty as well.

    Hurrah for ‘real’ actors!

  4. Dave2 says:

    Oh yes. Betty White kicks serious ass! 🙂

    I’m a fan as well. Was so disappointed that she didn’t do any commentary on the 1st season DVD release. Any idea if there are plans for her to do upcoming releases?
