Frail Betty White clutched the arm of her limo driver to walk on an outing just one day before her 97th birthday, as RadarOnline.com's exclusive photos show.
But The Golden Girls and The Mary Tyler Moore Show star, who was born January 17, 1922, never slows down and she flashed photographers a bright smile as she prepared for her special day.
White will turn 97 on Thursday, January 17, 2019, and her many fans will rejoice at her longevity.
On Wednesday, January 16, 2019 White was a trouper as she beamed for photographers while doing errands in Beverly Hills.
The beloved comedienne wore a blue Patagonia puffer jacket to ward off the rare California rain. Her layered look included a cheerful floral shirt with a white tee shirt underneath, blue pants, and heeled dress shoes.
Old school White always looks her best when going out in public. She wore full makeup, sporting red lipstick with matching colored polished fingernails. The star bravely clutched the arm of her limo driver as he escorted her around.
White smiled for adoring admirers during her day out. On Thursday, January 17, she will be hailed by friends and fans alike as she reaches the number 97 milestone!
As Radar exclusively revealed, White stays young by bellying up to the bar! An insider said the former Golden Girl is seen constantly at the ritzy restaurant the Pacific Dining Car in Santa Monica.
According to Radar's source, boozing Betty often enjoys drinks with an entourage on hand. "Betty loves her Grey Goose!" the source said. This summer, White stirred concern by holding the arm of her driver in order to walk. But six months later, the actress doesn't show any signs of slowing down!
White recently told an interviewer her advice for getting to be a ripe old age. She said to "enjoy life, 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." Her third husband Allen Ludden died in 1981 after their long and happy marriage.
The showbiz legend, who recently starred on Hot in Cleveland, told Parade she never gives up because "I just love to work. I’ll keep working until they stop asking."
