Betty White turns 90

WASHINGTON - Betty White turns 90 today, but you'd never know it considering how busy she is. Even 17 years ago, when she was a sprightly 73, she told AP Radio she didn't "have time to feel old."

She says she feels "sad" for people who freak out when they turn 30, or 40 or any other milestone. She says "they waste a whole decade belaboring the fact that they're growing older instead of enjoying that decade."

White still is busy as she enters her ninth decade. She has a new reality show called "Off Their Rockers," which previewed last night on NBC. And she continues to co-star in "Hot in Cleveland." Other than last night's raucous birthday special, White plans to spend a quiet birthday sitting at home with her golden retriever Pontiac.
