Betty White Opened Up About Her Time on ‘The Golden Girls’ 

During a 2010 interview with Today, Betty White stated that she knew that The Golden Girls was going to be something special based on the pilot. “You get a lot of scripts mailed to you and not too many of them are good. But when this one came along it just hit the spot. They sent it to each of us.”

Betty White also revealed that the casting crew sent her the script with the idea of her being Blanche. “ Jay Sandrich, who was our director for most of the Mary Tyler Moore shows, said if Betty plays another nymphomaniac they are going to think it is Sue Ann Nivens all over again. He said, why don’t we switch them?”

When asked about the chemistry between the four main castmates of The Golden Girls, Betty White said, “We all sat down for the first table read and somebody read a line and then somebody else read a line. You better be ready when you hit it over the net because you are going to get it right back over the net. It was the most exciting.”

Betty White also said the ladies all looked at each other because there wasn’t any first reading feeling about it. “It was like we had been working together forever. I still get goosebumps thinking about it.”

In regards to what she was most proud of about The Golden Girls, Betty White stated that she sent up a prayer of thanks for the writing. “We can’t do it without the writing. It has to be on the paper. No matter how much credit they try to take, actors can’t do it. Unless it is on that page and boy was it on that page.”
