Betty White Shares 99th Birthday Plans
Actress Betty White will celebrate her 99th birthday on Jan. 17. She shared that she plans to spend the day at home, quarantining because of COVID-19.
“You probably didn’t ask, but I’ll tell you anyway,” White said to Entertainment Tonight. “What am I doing for my birthday? Running a mile each morning has been curtailed by COVID, so I am working on getting The Pet Set re-released, and feeding the two ducks who come to visit me every day.”
The Pet Set was a TV show hosted by White and produced by her late husband Allen Ludden in the 70s. White invited fellow celebrities and their pets to join her each week. The show also discussed animal care, ecology and wildlife preservation.
The series is set to be released on DVD and streaming platforms on Feb. 23 for its 50th anniversary.
“The Pet Set is one of my favorite shows,” White said in a news release about the show’s new platforms. “I’m thrilled it’s going to be seen again after all these years.”
