Did Betty White Really Spend Her Final Days In A Home She Couldn’t Stand?

Many admirers felt as though they had lost a dear friend and confidant when they learnt of Betty White’s terrible passing. She played Sue Ann Nivens on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” a role that earned her a lifetime admirer in “Deadpool” actor Ryan Reynolds even before they collaborated on “The Proposal,” per People. In a 2011 CNBC interview, White referred to Sue Ann Nivens as “the local nymphomaniac” in a 2011 CNBC interview. But for many others, she will always be known for playing the innocent Minnesotan Rose Nyland on “The Golden Girls.” White’s deadpan delivery of Rose’s bless-your-heart style of humor helped her become a fan favorite since Rose was not nearly as guileless as she frequently appeared to be.

On the program, Rose was never alone because her roommates Blanche (Rue McClanahan), Dorothy (Bea Arthur), and Sophia (Estelle Getty) could never resist rolling their eyes at her ridiculous tales of life “back in St. Olaf.” Even though the women didn’t always get along, they appeared to be happy with their living arrangements. The epidemic, however, made living at White’s house in the upscale Brentwood district of Los Angeles extremely lonely. A representative for the celebrity told TODAY in 2020 that she only allowed guests who were absolutely necessary, and one of her friends told Closer Weekly that she missed playing Scrabble with her buddies in person.

Although White, ever the optimist, found many parts of epidemic life to like, as she lived out her later years, she had another place she wished to go to.

Betty White reportedly wanted to live in the house she and her late husband built.

Located more than 120 miles south of Los Angeles, in the beach town of Carmel, California, Betty White reportedly intended to live out her last years there. The actor “felt more comfortable” there, an insider told the New York Post, but her need for “at-home care” made it more feasible to live in Los Angeles. According to the source, Betty would have lived and passed away in that house if she had had her way. The Carmel home’s 3,600 square feet comes with two bedrooms, five bathrooms, and an ocean view. It had a second tale as well, which White thought was helpful.

White had intended to spend many happy years there with her third husband, Allen Ludden, whom she met while he was presenting the game show “Password.” However, three years after the couple started construction on their dream home, he passed away from stomach cancer.

She discovered a few reasons to adore her Brentwood home. Two ducks would periodically “waddle up to her glass door and peer in,” according to her spokesman, which obviously thrilled White, who loves animals. She also never complains about her situation, giving Parade the following guidance on how to be happy in 2018: “Put more emphasis on the good things than the bad.”
