Her childlike diet also consisted of canned tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwiches alongside the occasional crossword puzzle.
Her home was also reported to be worth millions as she showed a video on her TV special, Betty's Happy Hour.
In the 2017 TV special, she showed off her California home, using comedy to introduce the house. "I’m Betty White. Welcome to my crib," she said.
What was Betty White known for?
White was predominantly known for her role in Golden Girls and the Mary Tyler Moore Show, but her accolades stem far deeper than that, showing a career of tenacity.
In the 1950s, White was heavily criticized for including Arthur Duncan, a Black dancer, on The Betty White Show.
When she was told to pull him from the show, she gave a resounding "no" and gave Duncan more air time.
In the 2018 documentary, Betty White: First Lady of Television, she and Duncan spoke about the incident.
"All through the South there was this whole ruckus, they were going to take the show off the air if we didn’t get rid of Arthur because he was Black,” White said in the documentary.
Duncan added, “People in the South, some of them resented me being on the show and wanted me thrown out. And it was never a question at all.”
But White said her opinion was never going to change and Duncan was staying.
“Evidently through the South at that point, it was a very heavy (thing), and I said, ‘I’m sorry, but he stays … Live with it!’”
