It’s confession time and I have to admit that I have watched (and own) every episode of The Golden Girls. I have spent countless hours watching the lives of Blanche, Dorothy, Sophia and Rose, and I have loved every minute of it! Of course, the next logical step was for me to learn more about these wonderful women, and so I started listening to Betty White’s memoir, Here We Go Again: My Life in Television.
Betty White has had an amazing career in television. She has spent over 50 years on the screen! I had no idea how many shows she had actually been on. From watching special features about the Golden Girls I knew that she had been part of The Mary Tyler Moore Show, but I had no idea about The Betty White Show she hosted or the multitude of game shows that she was part of. After listening to the audio book I watched some old episodes to see Betty in action. My favorite character of hers will always be Rose Nylund though.
This memoir also looks at Betty’s life off camera. Betty tells of her loves and losses and everything in between. Animals play a huge role in her life and Betty has done a lot of work as an Animal Activist. She even had her own show, The Pet Set, where she featured celebrities and their pets!
This is a wonderful audio book for any Betty White fan. You’ll love that she narrates it herself and that her trademark humor is evident throughout.
Even if you haven’t had a chance to listen to the audio book yet, what is your favorite Betty White show or character?
