Betty White is turning 100 in a matter of weeks — on Jan. 17, 2022 — and the actress and comedian’s got plenty of spice and spunk left to share as she looks forward to turning the page on age 99 and reaching her centennial.
In an exclusive statement shared with Fox News Digital on Thursday, Dec. 30, 2021, about how she stays happy and healthy — and what keeps her going — she captured so much in such a succinct couple of lines.
“I’ve always been a cockeyed optimist,” Betty White told Fox News. “I got it from my mom. I’m gonna stick with it.”
White was born the only child of her “beloved mother,” homemaker Christine Tess, and her dad, Horace Logan White, a lighting company executive.
