Betty White is immortal.

If you were a fan of The Golden Girls, which aired on NBC from 1985 to 1992 for a total of 180 episodes, you may not realize just how old the stars of the show really are.

For example, Beatrice Arthur who played Maude Findlay, died back in April 2009 at the age of 86.

Rue McClanahan who played Blanche Devereaux, died in June 2010 at the age of 76.

Estelle Getty who played Sophia Petrillo died in July 2008 at 84.

If you're keeping track, you'd know that Betty White is the only Golden Girl that has yet to bite the dust. And surprisingly, no dust or biting is visible anytime soon.

Why? Because Betty White is 89 YEARS OLD! 89! And she's quickly approaching her 90th birthday, coming on January 17th. She was born in 1922.

Surprisingly, Betty has appeared on television and the big screen over 100 times, and she has been active in the entertainment world since 1939! That's 62 years!

The actress has won 5 Emmy Awards (nominated for 17) and has been nominated for a total of 48 awards, winning 23 of them. She's had no major health issues, ever.

Sounds to me like she's a vampire, and immortal - and amazing.
