Despite the fact that Betty White has “enjoyed the opposite sex a lot,” she says other people shouldn’t have to follow suit.
“I don’t care who anybody sleeps with,” White told Parade. “If a couple has been together all that time - and there are gay relationships that are more solid than some heterosexual ones - I think it’s fine if they want to get married.”
“I don’t know how people can get so anti-something,” she added. “Mind your own business, take care of your affairs, and don’t worry about other people so much.”
The 88-year-old pin-up girl also said, despite her sexual desire, she won’t enter cougar-ville.
“I’ve always liked older men. They’re just more attractive to me. Of course, at my age there aren’t that many left,” she joked.
White also told the magazine how she maintains her bod:
“I have a two-story house and a bad memory, so I’m up and down those stairs all the time,” she said. “That’s my exercise.”
Damn, Betty, so have I.
I LOVE Betty. Too bad she is not running for the President.
Love the girl. Best as Sue Ann Nivens, in my book.
I always enjoyed Betty White's performances and her great sense of humor. She also has a high level of integrity. God bless you, Betty!
Betty is a national treasure. Besides her wonderful acting in the Mary Tyler Moore Show and Golden Girls (my personal favorite) she was great on the game shows in the 60s and 70s. She's very smart, witty and always has a twinkle in her eyes. We should all aspire to be the kind of person she is.
Hey guys, let's chip in for we older men. I will be 94 next month, have been married for 62 years, and we both live happy, joyfilled lives. And yep, who has not watched the Golden Girls without having a great time.
You are a petty minded ,snivelling whining little nerd!
She is a great lady.
Could God give Betty one more lifetime?
she could be on the Supreme court or President, she always had so much commen sense and happiness to go around, what this world needs are more people like Betty
They must be getting harder and harder for her to find.
She is one of my favorite Betties
The other two are the one from the archie comics and betty rubble
There's a saying that....over time people don't remember what others say or what others do...but they remember how they make them feel. And Betty White makes me feel pretty damn good. She's a true treasure.
She's hilarious. I hope to see her in another commercial getting tackled or kicking some butt.
I feel sorry for her. At her age, the selection of older men is not what it used to be.
I want to be Betty White when I grow up!
Really Betty? At your age you better be dating the over 100 crowd...LOL
I's love to see Betty take on Shirley Phelps. Betty would kick her a**!
Betty.....you are 'da bomb. Never slow down.......I want to see you on TV celebrating your 100th birthday!
FACT: EVERYTIME I SEE BETTY WHITE, I SAY TO MYSELF, IF SHE CAN I CAN...
Effin barracuda. Baby just give me a chance, because once you go young, you'll NEVER go back!
She's the best!
And what she said about minding your own business and tending to your affairs...that's the best bit of advise someone could give. Don't worry about other people. That's one thing that's wrong with the world today...too much meddling. If it doesn't concern you, then mind your own damn business!
Betty White for Minnesota Quarterback Brett Farve stinks. I know defense would be great on protecting Betty White. I would break a leg for her . Brett should retire. Betty White don't retire ever.
I've always loved Betty White! She's a great inspiration, and loaded with common sense. “Mind your own business, take care of your affairs, and don’t worry about other people so much” is great advice. She had a remarkable love story of her own, done wonderful acting work, and devotes herself to her charities such as animal rescues. I agree with the doc above, though - there are a lot of women in our own neighborhoods with the same kind of zest for life and the same great life wisdom...it is just easier to fix on Betty because (luckily) we can invite her into our homes as often as we like via the miracle of video tape!!!
Betty is such a beautiful person. We all could learn quite a bit from her...
I love me some Betty. And Angela... gotta love the older ladies.
Hat's off to the old girl. Hope I'm that spry just before I become a nonogenarian.
I just have to say that I think Betty White is such an awesome entertainer. TRUE STORY, I watch Golden Girls every Monday right after I get out of work until I go to sleep. Grant it, I do my daily work outs but as I am running, I am watching my girls. I'm a loyal Betty White and Golden Girls fan! :)
I love Betty White, I wish there was a way to ensure she'd be around for another 88 years.
This woman has (not had) a stellar career. It's hard to pick which of her characters is the best, so will just continue to watch Hot in Cleveland to see if Elke turns out as great as Sue Ann Nivens and Rose Nyland.
I agree with someone above – I would MUCH rather see Betty in the news for ANY reason then the talentless hacks like Lindsay, Paris, the Kardashians, etc. Betty is still kickin ass, taking names AND donating to charities. We should have our children looking up to Betty and her ilk, not the wastelands that are "popular" now.
Live forever, Betty!
Amy said it best–"I would rather watch Betty White than the news about all the drug addicts like lohan, Hilton, etc.
Go Betty !!!!!
I agree with Amy 100%
Betty is the embodiment of "Live and let live".
She must be running out of prospects, by now...
Betty White is a national treasure. The story about how she exercises had me rolling on the floor laughing.
Then you are easily entertained. I like Betty White, but saying she climbs stairs for exercise hardly has me rolling on the floor in laughter.
She loves to date older men, all three of them.
Betty White is an inspiration to all of us. We should all age so gracefully.
How can u bring yourself to hate on a 88 year old. Jealousy will kill you before you see 65.
Thank God, because no one past 65 needs to be talking about their s3x lives. Every time she opens her mouth I think of the old lady in the bathtub that kisses Jack Nicholson in "The Shining" ugh
@ Steven Seagal
She looks better than Steven Seagal!
Thats absurd.. We live until we are dead and we have the right to enjoy and talk about every aspect of life, untiil that happens.
Agree with above; Betty rocks!! You go girl :)
Betty is great fun to watch.
I'd like, however, to remind everyone that there are many Betty's out there. As a MD I see many 80 year olds daily and many are with fantastic sense of humor and outlook on life. They are all blessings–80 year olds, that is.
What's the saying – woman are like a fine wine – we get better with age....
I've officially become annoyed with the over saturation of this woman.
She's 88. What's she supposed to do...pace herself?
Absolutely agree. Thanks for saying that.
And Yet you read the story and took the time to respond. Over saturated my butt. Betty White rocks. Admit it your a White lover.
betty is the best
LMAO, good comeback :)
Go Betty!!! She has energy & vibe 2 go on!
Go betty!!!!!! You are still number 1
Well said Betty.
Exactly! On a similar note – why ppl talk so much about abortion? leave the decision to the couple..huh
U know I really expected someone to say something mean about Betty.im so glad there was all good here.
We love Betty!! She is a fantastic person with a great personality. we try to watch her in whatever she is on. She is so spunky, keep up the great work u r doing Betty.
Gosh I love the golden girls. Betty is beautiful and I love her zest for life.
I love Betty White... she is just amazing
Betty is a legend,great humor and personality.go betty
She is a beautiful woman. And she don't look or act like a 88 years old. She is in a better shape than some of us younger Ppl.
I'm 71 old & I always enjoyed seeing her on TV from the time that I was just a kid. She alway had that nice smile & a twinkle in her eyes. She still looks as good as she did then.
John, you are awsome. 71 years old and you can navigate the internet and post replies, good for you. I still had to show my 75 year old grandfather how to type yahoo in the browser and hit enter.
Can you also program in Cobol and Fortran?
Betty is awesome ! She will always be adored by her many many fans!
She is lovely... We should appreciate her spirit and her vitality.
i freakin love betty white, and i faithfully watch golden girls reruns if i catch them on :) god bless her for keeping her humor all these years!
I agree! :0)
GREAT AT HER AGE IT LOOKS LIKE SHE CAN DATE MONTY BURNS
she likes older men? you mean like ....dead?
I don't think Betty cares how you feel. sorry
