Betty White BioGraphy

The full name of our heroine is Betty Marion White, and Betty is not an abbreviation for “Elizabeth”, but the name given to her at her baptism. She was born in 1922, January 17, in the town of Oak Park, located in Illinois, in an American family with international roots. Her father’s name was Horace Logan White, he was the son of a Dane and a Canadian who emigrated to the States. He received a good education at that time and worked as an electrical engineer, and then as the owner of a lighting company. Her mother’s name was Christine Tess Chuckins. She was the daughter of a Greek and a Canadian who also moved to America. White Betty’s parents were both born in 1899. The father was exactly 5 days older than the mother. They lived together. Betty was their favorite and only child. When she was two years old, the family moved to the Alhambra, and a few months later to California, where it was easier with work. But when the American Great Depression began, the White family had to move again. Now they have moved to Los Angeles. Betty’s father in those difficult years began to collect and sell radio, and for any money, just to feed his wife and daughter. He died in 1963, 5 months after Betty’s wedding. Her mother lived and flourished until 1985, and all this time she was the beloved mother-in-law for her dear son-in-law Allen Ladden.


Difficult start Betty  in her youth, and even now, is unusually sweet. Especially captivating is her mischievous look, open smile and dimples on her cheeks. But if these days, as they say, she is in great demand, then at the beginning of her career, the directors did not like her for some reason. Betty every day upholstered the thresholds of film studios, but she was refused everywhere, finding her appearance too simple. Then she entered the service on radio, which in those years was extremely popular. There, when hiring, they looked not at their appearance, but at their ability to speak beautifully. At first, Betty was instructed to pronounce advertising texts, depict the noise of the crowd, and only occasionally read small excerpts from works of art. The aspiring actress was not discouraged. She did everything she could to break into the world of cinema – she sang in various TV programs for free, took part in game shows, did any job on television for just $ 5 a day.

Personal Life

In the personal life of the actress there were three marriages, but only in the last one did she finally feel absolutely happy. For the first time, Betty went down the aisle in her youth – she was only twenty-three years old, and her husband was then the pilot Dick Barker. This event happened in the forty-fifth, but after six months the marriage collapsed. The actress decided on a new marriage only four years later – Veterinarian Lane Allen became the chosen one of her. But this time the marriage turned out to be short-lived – the couple parted, having lived together for a little over a year. After this divorce, there were no official marriages in the actress’s personal life for a long time, and only in the sixty-third year, when Betty was forty-one, she met Allen Ludden, host of the Password show, to which White was invited as a participant in the discussion. But Ludden had to work hard to get Betty to agree to become his wife – only a year after they met, she got married for the third time. The actress lived with Allen for eighteen years, until his death from cancer in the eighty-first year. Betty was very upset by the bitterness of loss, and her favorite work and memories of what she and Allen had good in life helped the actress to overcome it.
