I know we are all focusing on the negativity that Will Smith caused at the Oscars. However, there were a lot of positive things that happened during the Academy Awards. Things like Troy Kotsur winning the Oscar and Lady Gaga telling Liza Minnelli, “I got you.”

While those were in front of the camera, there was something really sweet happening behind the scenes.

During the In Memoriam, Jamie Lee Curtis paid tribute to the late Betty White by holding a puppy from Paw Works that needed a home. I say needed because Mac N Cheese is living with her new family. John Travolta shared the happy news, “Ben adopted this dog from last nights Oscar tribute to Betty White. Thank you @curtisleejamie & @pawworks”

Curtis explained how it all happened. “A MAGICAL ending to the story from last night. At the Oscars I reconnected with my friend, John Travolta. @johntravolta We starred together in the movie PERFECT back in 1984. I had already left the Dolby theater last night after honoring Betty White and was on my way home when someone texted me a photo of John holding little mac & cheese in the green room before his presentation of the best actor Oscar. I thought it was so beautiful to see him with her and then today I found out that he and his son, Ben have adopted beautiful little mac & cheese and are taking her home today,” the actress wrote. “It is an emotional end and a perfect tribute to Betty White and it shines a light and AMPLIFIES the message that heroes who, like Betty, and Chad from @pawworks and Nancy from @perfect_pet_rescue and the team at @maedayrescue and the hundreds of thousands of other rescues, who love and support ANIMALS, that rescuing animals and offering them shelter from the storm of life and a warm and loving home is one of life’s most important actions we humans can take! #adoptdontshop”

Talk about six degrees of separation, Betty White worked with Jamie Lee Curtis in You Again, and she also worked with Travolta in Perfect. And now Travolta is working with Mac N Cheese on The Luckies Puppy.

Too bad Mac N Cheese is a girl because Oscar would’ve been an excellent name for her. However, since she is a girl, maybe they can go with Adele Dazeem. Too soon?

On Monday night, NBC is going to honor the late Betty White with a star-studded event. One of the stars is Cher, and she sings Andrew Gold’s Thank You for Being a Friend.

The legendary singer shared a sneak peek of her performance, and I am sure it just became the biggest single of the year. I mean, two huge Gay icons merging like this. It is almost too good to be true.

They are President Joe Biden, Drew Barrymore, Valerie Bertinelli, Cher, Bryan Cranston, Ted Danson, Ellen DeGeneres, Jimmy Fallon, Tina Fey, Ana Gasteyer, Goldie Hawn, Vicki Lawrence, Jane Leeves, Jay Leno, Anthony Mackie, Wendie Malick, Joel McHale, Tracy Morgan, Jean Smart, Mary Steenburgen, and few surprises.

A post shared by Betty White (@bettymwhite)

Betty White died on New Year’s Eve, just days before what would’ve been her 100th birthday. To commemorate that big day, she recorded a message for her fans 11 days before she died.

Today her assistant posted that video and explained, “When we recorded her special message to fans who attended the movie, we also recorded one that we had planned to put on social media on her birthday. She was using the occasion of her 100th birthday to celebrate YOU – her fans. She knew how lucky she was; she felt the love, and she never took it for granted. I think it’s appropriate to post today as a thank you from Betty and the animals.”

In the joyful video, she thanks us for our love and support. And her final words to us were to “stick around.” Miss White might not be with us physically, but she will always be in our hearts. So we will stick around with her for the rest of our lives.

She was gorgeous inside and out, even in her final days.


BTWF: Betty White hosting The Betty White Show
January 3rd, 2022 under Before They Were Famous, Betty White. [ Comments: none ]

Before Betty White was all the hosts’ favorite talk show guest, she was hosting her self-titled talk show with a controversial guest.

I don’t know if you read the story over the weekend, but here it is. In 1954, White had booked Arthur Duncan, an African-American tap dancer on her show, and the Southern States told her to cancel him. She told them, “He stays. Live with it!” She then proceeded to book him two more times before her show got cancelled.

That is why we love her so much! As someone wrote, “You know you are loved if at 99 people say you died too young.” But that was Betty, and that is how we feel.

And how do you feel about seeing her hosting her show and singing when she was 32 in that 1954 episode?


RIP Betty White

Betty White passed away today, just days before her 100th birthday on January 17th. Jeff Witjas, her agent and friend, said, “Even though Betty was about to be 100, I thought she would live forever… I don’t think Betty ever feared passing because she always wanted to be with her most beloved husband, Allen Ludden.”

What more can someone say about America’s sweetheart, who everyone loved. Whether you got to her know her on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Golden Girls, Hot In Cleveland, the game shows, the late night appearance, and everything else she did, you couldn’t help but to adore her.

I interviewed her, and she was just what you thought she would be. The actress was the nicest person you could meet, and she was also humble with all of the success she had throughout her career. One night, me and a friend went backstage and got to talk to her after a taping of Hot in Cleveland. She thanked us for laughing at all the right times. I thanked her for making us laugh.

And I thank her again for all of those laughs. So spend today watching her do just that and laugh with her. You can see her shows all over the TV. And if you want to make it even more special, you can check out her first two sitcoms, Life with Elizabeth and Date with the Angels, on Tubi, today.

I guess today was her day to have a date with the angels and be with her late husband and the love of her life Allen Ludden. Hopefully, she is being greeted by him at the Rainbow Bridge by all the animals she loved on her way to the Pearly Gates.
