"What happens where there is only one of us left"?

Anyone remember that line that Rose said? Ironic, isn't it?

It was eerie how all the Golden Girls except Betty all passed away within a year apart of each other. I am so glad that it didn't happen to Betty too, I hope she sticks around at least for another ten years.

I loved Betty's 90th Birthday special with castmembers of The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Carol Burnett Show and Hot In Cleveland, but it was so sad there was no other "Golden Girl" there. I really missed them, especially Rue!

Smile Celebration!!

Yippee! I enjoyed every moment of her birthday celebration. I sang along "Thank you for being a friend" after her speech while crying happy tears. Bet they served a mouth-watering cheesecake during the party!

Sadly, she's one of the last dozen or so of those great actors we all loved in the 1970s-1980s and into 1990s that was "grandparent-like" in those years. It's sad that between 2010-2020, many of who are still left of the great actors of that time period who were grandparent-like will be gone. For example, George Gaynes who played Henry on Punky Brewster is around 96 now. No way he will live past 2015/2016, if he does, he'll be over 100 I think. Very few will live past 2020 who are left.


But Betty is still going strong at age 91, acting, and seems to be doing great!

It trully would be amazing if Betty and some of the last celebs that are almost 100, that they live to 110 or so, but it's highly unlikely. Most celebs pass on around age 90-99 who live the longest.

I really enjoyed the special as well! I think that would have been awesome to see what Estelle, Bea and Rue would have said in regards to her birthday!

It's now December, 2016. Betty will turn 95 years old next month. I just saw her interviewed last week. She made the comment "At 94 you just don't expect to be this healthy."

That made me SO happy! Apparently she's not experiencing any serious health issues or she wouldn't have said that. Her voice is sounding raspier and raspier as time goes on, but I'll take my Betty any way I can get her.

Happy 95th birthday on January 17th, Betty. We love you!
