Betty White’s belongings being auctioned for the public to take home

One of the items up for auction this week. — JULIENSLIVE.COM

OVER 1,600 belongings from the late American actress Betty White will be up for auction this week, from her old TV and Disney VHS collection to her Cadillac.

Taking place both online and in-person, the auction at Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills from Sept. 23 to Sept. 25 also includes her dining room table, a blue ceramic horse, and her leather baby shoes. The list goes on.

More personalized items include Ms. White’s oil painting of herself as a young woman, monogrammed towels, and some handwritten personal notes from famous names like Lily Tomlin and Alex Trebek.

Ms. White’s diamond wedding band and the wedding band her third and last husband, Allen Ludden, wore are standout items. Mr. Ludden was noted for having worn the band around his neck with a chain for three months to remind Ms. White about his many wedding proposals to her, and it worked. They were married until he died in 1981. Ms. White died in December 2021 at 99 after a remarkable television career that lasted over seven decades, with beloved roles on The Golden Girls, The Mary Tyler Moore Show and many more.

Not all her belongings will be sold. Many items were donated to the National Comedy Center in September and are on show at its museum in Jamestown, New York. Visiting fans can see Ms. White’s five Emmy statuettes, including one for The Golden Girls in 1986 and another for Saturday Night Live in 2010.

Visitors can also see on display her tracksuit from Hot in Cleveland, her sweater from The Golden Girls, and hand-annotated scripts. — Reuters
