We knew she’d make it! Not only is she very much here to celebrate this remarkable occasion, but it’s quite obvious she’s smoothly sailing right past her momentous milestone with plenty of energy for life ahead.
And of course we knew there would be a big party, televised for all of us to enjoy, a modern-day version of her classic Dean Martin dinner roast. She undoubtedly deserves this honor, while her fans– including myself– love her for all she’s become as the most “golden girl” of all, the reigning senior queen of comedy.
May any of us who live to see this day for ourselves be as sexy, good-humored and sharp-witted as she. January 17 is the very day for us to say, as she sails on into yet another new decade:
Happy 90th Birthday, Betty White!
