    Betty White, a beloved television star whose career lasted more than eight decades, died on Friday at 99-years-old.

    "Beloved actress, comedian and American icon Betty White has died, just weeks before a milestone birthday," TMZ reported. "Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Betty passed away at her home Friday morning."

    The eight-time Emmy winner had the longest television career of any entertainer in history with her career starting in the late 1930s. She is best known "for her scene-stealing roles in two pioneering sitcoms - as the promiscuous cooking show host Sue Ann Nivens on the 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show' in the 1970s and sweet-natured simpleton Rose Nylund on 'The Golden Girls' in the 80s," Page Six reported.

    White was in the news this week after she gave an interview to People magazine ahead of what would have been her 100th birthday on January 17th.

    "I'm so lucky to be in such good health and feel so good at this age," White said. "It's amazing."

    The article stated:

    Nowadays, White enjoys a quiet life in Los Angeles playing crossword puzzles and card games. She also likes to watch animal documentaries, Jeopardy! and sports, particularly golf. White, who is a longtime animal welfare advocate, is also a longtime supporter of the Wildlife Learning Center, the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Actors and Others for Animals.

    And her golden legacy still lives on. As part of PEOPLE's cover story, White's famous friends share their experiences with the "very funny" actress.


    White told the magazine that her exuberant personality stemmed from being "born a cockeyed optimist."

    "I got it from my mom, and that never changed," White said. "I always find the positive."

    When asked about her diet, White joked that she tried "to avoid anything green."
