The Golden Girls: Please! Give Betty White a Break!

Betty WhiteTo say that 88-year-old Betty White has been having a busy year would be an understatement. She’s a regular on TV Land’s Hot in Cleveland, a recurring guest on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, a guest on the season premiere of Community, a guest on The Middle, a frequent visitor to talk shows, a tireless animal activist, and she’s writing a new book besides.

Heck, even before Betty White had hosted Saturday Night Live, other campaigns started popping up to have her host the Academy Awards and the Emmys.

Though we all love the last surviving Golden Girl, you have to wonder how much work she can take. Is someone trying to kill her? Well, finally, someone has said enough’s enough.

Take a look…

What do you think? Do you think Betty White needs a break? Have you had too much?

    I think it’s great that she is working. I think anyone who enjoys what they are doing should do it until they can’t anymore. It is sad that she is the last of the golden girls ,but she has proven that she brings way more to the table than her character of Rose.

    I don’t see this as a ‘dis’ on Betty White at all. I found it very funny and I remember what I felt when reading how people wanted to start – or already had started – campaigns for her to host the Academy Awards, to be on Dancing With the Stars etc..

    Give the woman a break – Ms. White can pick and choose what she wants to do and always turns in a great performance but does anyone think it’s realistic to expect Ms. White to go through the grueling weeks of physical rehearsal required for DWTS?

    Betty White is a versatile actress and always fun and interesting to watch. I still laugh whenever I catch an episode of Mary Tyler Moore featuring Ms. White’s Sue Ann Nivens!

    It’s just a joke, people, and a funny one at that, lol. I’m happy to see Betty White working; it’s what any actor wants.

    I agree with Chris. Let’s just put all of these old people out to pasture; find a good rest home for them. Heck, why wait until they are old? Mental faculties begin declining in our 40s. Let’s just start doing it then.

    Chris, I really, really, really feel sorry for you.

    Yeah, please.. humans who don’t know when to call it quits.. just embarassing.
    Everyone has to step down one day and every single one of us has to die at some point in time. But some people are so afraid of losing everything they had in life, they are developping a strange disorder. They are trying to compensate their mortality via blind workaholism. Personally, i am already tired of seeing the old lady Betty White since the 90s dawned.

      I AGREE WITH THE OTHER SHERRY. SHE IS A TRUE TREASURE AND WE BECOME RICHER WITH EVERY YEAR SHE IS AMONG US WHETHER SHE IS WORKING WITH ANIMAL RIGHT OR JUST SHARING HER BRAND OF COMEDY THAT MAKES LIFE A LITTLE BRIGHTER.

    I am not tired of Betty White. I am a fan of her for a long time since she was on Password with her late husband Allen Ludden in 1963. I am looking forward to see Betty again on TV Land’s Hot In Cleveland in January, 2011. The ‘Save Betty White” is just pathetic!
