Here We Go Again: My Life In Television
A MEMOIR OF BETTY WHITE’S FIRST FIVE DECADES ON TELEVISION—AS IRREVERENT AND IRRESISTIBLE AS THE BELOVED ACTRESS HERSELF
BETTY WHITE first appeared on television in 1949 and has gone on to have one of the most amazing careers in TV history, starring in shows such as Life with Elizabeth, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, and The Golden Girls, among many others. She is one of the h...more
I'm a huge Betty White fan and find myself on the lookout for anything new she stars in. I knew a lot about her career for the last 35+ years wh ...more
Here We Go Again (probably a reference to this being her second or third biography) is a really nice and compact look at the history of television programing, especially in the early years. It's short, which is to its merit, and it is sensibly focused on White's career, but nevertheless I learned a thing or two about t ...more
This biography is funny (sometimes bizarre, too), but it also offers a portrait into the changing world of television and how quickly it progressed between the 1970's and 1990's eras.
Her humor, positivity, and effervescence radiates throughout the entire book.
I couldn't put it down -- in fact, I read all but 40 pages in a weekend of travel.
If you are even REMOTELY interested in old television, buy this imm ...more
I also learned things about her love life that I had no idea about. Not that I was supposed to know such intimate details, but it was eyebrow raising information.
Fans of all walks of life will enjoy this book. Told in her own words, you can hear her voice when reading. Not literally, but figuratively.
And, when she spoke about feeling defensive when attacked by those feminists at the Television and Broadcast Convention, I was SO on her and Jayne Wyatt's side! "Go, ladies!", I thought. Personally, I thought the feminatzis were being stupid-- the roles of wom ...more
I Picked Up This Book Because: I love Betty White and lets be honest I needed something short to take me over the top for my 2017 reading challenge.
As I said I love Betty White. I find her story fascinating. This particular book deals with her life in TV. A bit of her time with Allen Ludden (and other husbands). Betty has done so much in her time. She has truly seen television though its infancy to the bounding bustling business today. She ...more
This is the third Betty White book I have read and was pleasantly surprised with the writing style/content. In comparison to White’s other books which feature antidotes and inspirational stories/advice; “Here We Go Again” is more of a mem ...more
I was surprised to find out about her relationships prior to the love of her life, Allen Ludden. It was wonderful to read about their special relationship and how much they love ...more
I felt like I was sitting having coffee with a friend, hearing all the news first hand. What a pro, what a down-to-earth person, what an exemplary success story. All because she kept following her passi ...more
I was happily surprised that there wasn't language in this story. Betty can be gruff at times and knows how to swear like a sailor. Betty has a long legacy in TV. She started on radio, moved to commercial spots, then got her break into TV and ...more
And, with her long and fabulous career she probably has stories she could share that would titillate, however, she is the ultimate lady and tells a lovely story of a well lived life.
Truly a beautiful woman inside and out.
