BETTY WHITE: DESIRE NEVER ENDS
I didn’t think I could possibly adore BETTY WHITE to a greater degree. And now this…
I strongly suspect that my leonine nature will endure over the decades. Let’s just say that great minds think alike.
BETTY WHITE scoffed at the question.
“Does desire melt away with age? I’m waiting for that day to come,” she tells AARP Magazine in its November/December issue.
“Sexual desire is like aging,” she continued, pointing to her head.
“A lot of it is up here.”
BETTY, who shares the magazine’s cover with two of her YOU AGAIN costars JAMIE LEE CURTIS and KRISTIN BELL, told the magazine that her first marriage was totally physical.
“I married my first husband because we wanted to sleep together. It lasted six months and we were in bed for six months.”
After a disastrous second marriage, BETTY met game show host ALLEN LUDDEN. She said they were a match made in heaven – even though she wasn’t interested initially.
“He bought me a beautiful ring and I threw it back at him. So he wore it on a chain around his neck. He said, ‘I’m going to wear it until you put it on your finger.‘ “
They walked down the aisle in 1963 and stayed together until his death in 1981.
“The secret to our marriage was enthusiasm. When I knew Allen was coming home, I would freshen my makeup and put on a new blouse.”
And the sex was apparently great, too. If ALLEN were alive today, BETTY believes that they’d still be sleeping together. But if he were unavailable, she has a second choice.
“I don’t have a fella. But if Allen – or Robert Redford – were around, we’d have a very active sex life.”
