The original Golden Girl is still making us laugh as she prepares to turn 96, so it's worth examining what keeps her young at heart.

In fact, Betty holds the Guinness World Record for the longest career by a female entertainer, and at the rate she's going nobody is going to beat that record any time soon.
But as she gets older, Betty is taking her age with her trademark humor. “My mom said to never lie about your age," she says, "because you'll forget what you told one person and get mixed up.” If you want to be as energetic and bright as Betty in your 90s, she's shared some tips that are pretty easy to follow.
