Veteran actress Betty White shared her daily routine amid the quarantine ahead of her upcoming 99th birthday, which she plans to celebrate lowkey and in style.


2020 was a challenging year for many due to the COVID-19 pandemic as many had to stay holed up in their home. Iconic actress, Betty White, was not exempt from the lockdown, but she could navigate the trying times with an effective routine.

White's representative recently spoke to US Weekly about how she fared amid the quarantine noting that she was in great spirits and health. The source stated that the actress wished it was possible to interact with her friends during the lockdown.

However, she had to adhere to the safety protocols and obey social distancing strictly. Nevertheless, White had a lovely lockdown experience with other safe and exciting activities that kept her busy. The insider said:

"Crossword puzzles are no match for Betty. She reads a number of newspapers, watches select television, and gets a lot of exercise in her home walking up and down bedroom stairs."

The veteran Hollywood star has been preparing for an eventful 2021 with her show, "The Pet Set," which initially aired in the '70s, set to make a return to digital platforms to commemorate its 50th anniversary in February.

Before the pandemic, the legendary actress made her last public appearance in September 2018.


Before the show's release, White has an even bigger celebration as she is set to turn 99 on January 17. A source disclosed that she is looking forward to her big day but has no plans to have a grand bash due to the ongoing pandemic.

Instead, she'll opt for a low-key and intimate party that still entails a lot of fun. The insider disclosed that White is planning to have a Zoom garden party with her close friends, including a chocolate cake with many candles.


There will also be hot dogs, fries, and ketchup available. Although she is having her bash over a video call, the actress won't be alone as she has a full-time helper who lives with her and has grown to be her close companion over the past year.

In the meantime, fans have serenaded White with letters, gifts, and birthday cards. Before the pandemic, the legendary actress made her last public appearance in September 2018 at the 70th Primetime Emmy Award.

She received a standing ovation when she was brought on stage to be honored as one of the oldest winners. Since her breakout in 1939, White hasn't slowed down with a host of movies and television shows to her name.

The long list of projects includes "Life with Elizabeth," "Date with Angels," "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," "The Betty White Show," and "The Golden Place."
