by Joe Rutland

Tributes are pouring in all day Friday after hearing Betty White died. Law & Order: Organized Crime star Tamara Taylor offers her thoughts.

Taylor plays Professor Angela “Angie” Wheatley, who is the former wife of Richard Wheatley, the resident bad guy played by Dylan McDermott.

Let’s see what she shared via Instagram.

The picture that Taylor shares here comes from a 2015 episode of Bones. Betty White is, obviously, at the far right; Taylor is at the far left, with Emily Deschanel in the middle. White played forensic anthropologist, Dr. Beth Meyer, in this episode.

Taylor has been a part of Law & Order: Organized Crime since its first season. She has a lot ahead of her with Richard still dealing with some issues between himself and Elliot Stabler, played by Chris Meloni.

‘Law & Order: Organized Crime’ Star’s Fans Offer Thoughts On Betty White Post

What are some fans saying on Taylor’s post?

One writes, “You got to be beside her you Lucky thang”. Another writes, “The gift to be in a room with a true icon”.

Then this fan says, “I LOVED HER ON BONES!!”

If you asked Betty White fans on Friday if they loved her in everything she ever did, then the consensus would probably be a resounding yes.

And now this brief bit of housekeeping, Outsiders. Law & Order: Organized Crime returns with a new episode on Thursday, Jan. 6, at 10 p.m. Eastern, 9 p.m. Central, on NBC. You might want to also set aside time for SVU, which stars Mariska Hargitay and comes on at 9 p.m. Eastern, 8 p.m. Central, also on NBC.

This will be a two-hour crossover event where both shows will follow one storyline. Yeah, promos for this coming week’s episodes have been showing Richard coming eye-to-eye with Stabler.

Get ready to rumble, fans. It’s coming your way on Thursday night.

White Would Appear In Classic Shows Like Mary Tyler Moore, The Golden Girls

Betty White, though, will not be forgotten. The woman appeared on TV screens from the 1950s until this year. She met her husband, Password game-show host Allen Ludden, when she was a guest player on the show.

She starred in shows that resonate years later like The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Golden Girls, Hot in Cleveland, and many others. Betty White was a staunch advocate for animal rights.

After Ludden died in 1981, Betty White never married again. But she did continue to appear on TV shows and work.

She outlived the rest of the cast members from the Moore show. Just in 2021 alone, stars White, Cloris Leachman, Ed Asner, and Gavin MacLeod all died.
