Who made Betty White feel that dizzy love?
Legendary actress Betty White will be honored with a documentary about her 8-decade acting career. In a recent interview, the star revealed that she was a normal human being who still had crushes.
Even though she’s almost 100 years old, the star shared with The New York Post that she had a crush on a fellow celebrity. The man is a host on one of the many game shows she’s appeared on.
Betty White, 96, will be the subject of the documentary “Betty White: First Lady of Television.” The film will air on August 21 on PBS at 8 p.m.
Steven J. Boettcher and Michael J. Trinklein filmed the documentary over a five-year period. It takes a look into White’s 80-year show-business career.

Some of them are Tina Fey, Ryan Reynolds, Valerie Bertinelli, and Carl Reiner. In a recent interview, White opened up about her appearances on game shows.
There she revealed that she had a celebrity crush on one of the game show’s hosts.
She said, “I watch Jeopardy! First, it’s such a good game and second, I happen to have a huge crush on the host, Alex Trebek.”
Ironically, she also confessed that she didn’t watch television that much. Trebek was credited as a narrator on an episode of a biographical television series called “Intimate Portrait.”
Coincidentally, the episode focused on the life of White. The star has also had a wide-spanning career with her hosting "Saturday Night Live" when she was 88-years-old.
She also made a Super Bowl commercial a few years later. White was the first woman to produce a sitcom, “Life With Elizabeth,” in which she also co-starred with Del Moore.
The show ran for 65 episodes and won 8 Emmys in primetime and daytime. The actress also co-starred in two television classics: “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and “The Golden Girls.”
