National treasure Betty White turns 99 on Sunday, and she already has her celebration planned.
She told Entertainment Tonight, “Running a mile each morning has been curtailed by COVID, so I am working on getting ‘The Pet Set’ re-released, and feeding the two ducks who come to visit me every day.” (The Pet Set was a show Betty hosted in the ’70s where she would hang out with other celebrities and their animals. It’s coming to DVD and streaming platforms next month.)
Betty also said she’s “blessed with good health,” adding that a sense of humor keeps her going. “Don’t take yourself too seriously. You can lie to others . . . not that I would . . . but you cannot lie to yourself.”
Another thing that helps is, “Just looking at the positive side and not dwelling on the downside. [It] takes up too much energy being negative. Also having a good agent who keeps me busy all the time.”
Can we just circle back to her running a mile a day for a minute? Because if she’s doing that in her 90s, what the what are the rest of us doing on our couches???
