Betty White was a true Hollywood treasure who was entertaining and endearing audiences for decades. Although some stars seem to step back from the spotlight as they get older, for Betty White, she just kept the roles coming and seemed to only get funnier and funnier. Over many years, White starred in everything from television series to movies, not to mention game show hosting, and several appearances and guest starring roles in popular shows. Now, there is no way White could ever do a bad job, but in honor of her incredible life and career, take a look back at some her most popular roles ranked.
12. Rose Nylund – The Golden Palace
Rose Nylund was Betty White’s most well-known role, and it won’t be the last time it appears on the list. While White as Rose Nylund was amazing, it didn’t go over as well in The Golden Girls‘ spinoff The Golden Palace. The Golden Palace was missing an important piece without Bea Arthur as Dorothy, and as a result, the chemistry that audiences adored in The Golden Girls was missing, and even White couldn’t make the series work. After The Golden Palace was canceled after only one season, White said, “It would have been a wonderful idea for three other people, but it just didn’t work without Dorothy.”
