Betty White, whose television career as an actress and entertainer spans incredible 80 years, is turning 98 on January 17!
Speaking to Closer Weekly, one of her closest friends unveiled Betty’s plans for the big day.
“It will be at her home with her longtime friends and stepchildren,” she said. “She’s still close with them and their children. They’ll order food in and have fun.”

Started celebrating my birthday a little early with @parademagazine. That’s a LOT of candles!!! #parademagazine
As her fans are still speaking of her last year’s celebration that was all about poker and a huge cake with her besties, they are eagerly waiting to see if this year’s party will top that one.
But for Betty, who loves being part of the Hollywood glam and whose life right now revolves around “laughing and telling good stories,” reaching another magnificent year that she can spend around those she loves is all that matters.
What’s the secret behind a successful and long life like that of America’s sweetheart Betty? Well, asked about it back in 2018, she told Parade, “You just keep plugging away. You don’t give up.”
“Enjoy life,” she said. “Accentuate the positive, not the negative. It sounds so trite, but a lot of people will pick out something to complain about, rather than say, ‘Hey, that was great!’ It’s not hard to find great stuff if you look.”
Happy Birthday Betty and many more to come! You are a true diva and a true inspiration to all of us!
