Betty White Flirts With Alec Baldwin In Surprise Emmy Awards Appearance

"Thank you, I'm just gonna quit while I'm ahead", she managed to joke.

"Somebody said something the other day about first lady of television, and I took it as a big compliment", she quipped.

Betty White, 96, surprised the audience at the 2018 Emmy Awards on Monday night by gracing the stage.

Gifs were already being made by the time Betty left, praising the "queen" and wishing someone would look at them the same way Sandra Oh looked at the iconic actress during her speech. And, although the gesture was warm and well-deserved, it wasn't the most delightful part of her appearance. And having such an impressive career comes with an equally impressive bank account.


White was awarded the Guinness World Record in 2014 for the "Longest TV Career for an Entertainer", and her efforts have certainly paid off as she has an estimated net worth of $75 million.

Evidently, she was there to steal the show.

'It's incredible that I'm still in this business and you are still putting up with me, ' said the comedy stalwart, who was nominated for her first Emmy in 1951 at the event's third ceremony ever.

But she stayed, and reflected on how wonderful it was to still be working in the medium she loved. Another Twitter user wrote: "We must protect Betty White at all costs, she is a national treasure". "No, for me." She may be 96 but the gal's still got it. She previously said that if she wasn't in show business she would have been a zookeeper.
