Longtime Betty White agent confirms there will be no public memorial


Betty White was a big star, but she never wanted people to fuss about her, including after she left.

Inside Edition spoke with their longtime agent Jeff Witjas about their final days.

“I’ve never seen Betty’s morale drop. We had a great conversation. His mind was relatively sharp. His sense of humor was there, ”Witjas said.

The beloved “Golden Girl” died on New Year’s Eve from natural causes at the age of 99.

A fake social media post claimed the TV legend died after receiving a COVID-19 booster. Witjas said White had never had a callback because she lived in a COVID-19 bubble and had very few visitors.

“For about a few years, Betty never left her house and those who entered were very few,” Witjas said. “Everyone wanted to keep her healthy.

He says his daily routine was simple.

“I think it was a bit bland. She read a lot, she played puzzles. Every time I went we would play gin rummy, which we loved to play together, ”said Witjas.

Witjas also confirmed that there will be no public memorial.

“Betty never wanted it. She didn’t want people to change their schedules to go out of their way for her,” Witjas said.

Today, White’s 1983 appearance on the “Tonight Show” with guest host Joan Rivers goes viral as the two swapped funny beards on the covers of competing magazines.

Rivers looked glamorous on the cover of People magazine, while White posed with a dog for Kennel Review magazine.

The viral clip is now 40 years old – further proof that White’s comedy lives on.

Meanwhile, animal shelters across the country are benefiting from the Betty White Challenge, urging fans of the star to donate $ 5 to their local shelter on January 17, which would have been her 100th anniversary.
