As I mentioned before, my guess is that Bea didn't so much hate Betty, as she was jealous of her. And I doubt she had to force herself to join her for lunch.

Going to lunch with Betty White would not be an act of sacrifice or generosity, it would be a joy. She's a delightful person. I'd be thrilled to have lunch with her any day.

"Betty starred on a game show at one point"? At one point?

Are you freakin' kidding me? Betty White starred in two television shows in the early days of TV. Life With Elizabeth and Date With the Angels. She has done numerous motion pictures. (How many movies was Bea Arthur in?) And she was a FAVORITE guest on so many early television shows even Betty herself probably can't remember them all.

And since when does "coming from Broadway" justify calling someone "the c word" or giving her own son the impression that she was "more of an actress" than she was? Let's face it. She mistreated Betty. She mistreated Estelle Getty, and she mistreated an entire Broadway audience one night just because she got drunk.

Nice try, Matthew. I get it..you loved your mother. But you just provided more proof to the rumor that she was a bee-otch, without meaning to.

Agreed! No disrespect to him but if he is going to summarize Betty's Resume, then get the details. She did more than game shows. Betty had been in the industry close to 70 years (possibly even more). Bless his heart.

Bea and Betty had two very different personalities. Bea was a natural pessimist and low key, while Betty is a natural optimist and high energy. Betty seemed to be of the opinion of working hard but having fun while working, while Bea seemed more like she wanted things to be very serious.
