Valerie Bertinelli speaks out on working with Betty White

Betty White passed away just a few months shy of her 100th birthday.

Betty White left a lot of impression in the lives of people and that’s why she will be remembered forever.

Betty White was born in Oak Park, Illinois on January 17, 1922, to Horace White and Tess Curts White.


As a child, she always wanted to be a forest ranger but fell in love with acting while in high school.

Her childhood dream came true in 2010 when she was honored with the title of a forest ranger by the U.S forest service.

Betty White said at the time, “In my heart, I’ve been a forest ranger all my life, but now I’m official, whether I’ve been a legitimate forest ranger or not, I’ve been working for the cause for the last 89 years. I know this is an honorary position, but it’s also one where I can use a voice to try to protect the remaining beautiful parts of this gorgeous world we live on.”


Betty White decided to go into the entertainment industry after graduating from high school and worked in radio before getting her show.

Betty White had a successful career, but her love life has been a roller coaster. She was married thrice.

She was married thrice to Dick Barker, then to Lane Allen.

In 1960, she met her third husband, Allen Ludden. They lived far apart from each other and maintained a long-distance relationship.

In 1963 they got married and Allen tragically passed away in 1981 due to stomach cancer and Betty never remarried.

She became a stepmother to three kids, and their relationship wasn’t all that great. Her stepdaughter, Martha never seem to get over the fact that she was married to their father.

“Allen used to argue with Martha constantly over her anger towards Betty,” the source explained. “Her tumultuous relationship with her father caused him a lot of grief.”

Betty has no regrets whatsoever that have happened, she only regrets not spending enough time with Allen.

Valerie told Rachael Ray, “To be able to experience five years of working with Betty White…who gets that lucky?! Beyond her talent and how impeccable she was with timing and watching her work ethic, she was just one of those super ridiculously kind people.”

“It just oozed out of her. I tell people that this woman glowed because she did. She walked into a room – not making an entrance at all, she just walked into a room – and you knew she was there.

There was just a light around her because she was so kind and grateful for her life. And it was a huge lesson to be able to watch that and watch her just live in gratitude.”

Betty White was a wonderful person and we hope she keeps resting in Peace.
