CBR4 #35 If You Ask Me by Betty White

It-girl Betty White delivers a hilarious, slyly profound take on love, life, celebrity, and everything in between. Drawing from a lifetime of lessons learned, seven-time Emmy winner Betty White's wit and wisdom take center stage as she tackles topics like friendship, romantic love, aging, television, fans, love for animals, and the brave new world of celebrity. If You Ask Me mixes her thoughtful observations with humorous stories from a seven- decade career in Hollywood. Longtime fans and new fans alike will relish Betty's candid take on everything from her rumored crush on Robert Redford (true) to her beauty regimen ("I have no idea what color my hair is and I never intend to find out") to the Facebook campaign that helped persuade her to host Saturday Night Live despite her having declined the hosting job three times already. Featuring all-new material, with a focus on the past fifteen years of her life, If You Ask Me is funny, sweet, and to the point-just like Betty White.
I've been a huge fan of Betty White for many years. I used to think she was a long lost relative of mine and she was my favorite Golden Girl. I also loved her appearances on Match Game and Password.

This memoir is quirky, humorous and lovely just like Betty herself. I enjoyed the pictures of her intertwined with the different stories. The chapters are very conversational.  So much so that you can easily read this memoir in one sitting.
