Another year of fun!
Betty White is getting ready to ring her in 95th birthday on Tuesday, Jan. 17 — and her friends have revealed the actress’ special party plans in an exclusive new interview with Closer Weekly!
“She says she wants to have some girls over and play a friendly game of poker,” an insider said of Betty’s birthday wishes. “And she wants to indulge in one — just one — vodka tonic. That would be a perfect birthday in her eyes.”

Though she’s turning 95-years-old, Betty has no desire to slow down. “Every single morning she reads the Los Angeles Times cover to cover, along with a couple other newspapers,” the Golden Girls star‘s close friend, Tom Sullivan told Closer.
“And she always does at least two full crossword puzzles every day,” he added. A physical therapist also visits Betty twice per week to lead her through a light exercise regimen which includes a walk around the grounds of her Brentwood, CA home.
“She watches golf on Sundays, and then she’ll call me and say, ‘I’ve been working on my golf swing in the living room and I just can’t get my flat-iron swing right!’” Tom told Closer.

Betty’s dear friend and former housekeeper Edna McNair similarly told Closer the actress hopes to ring in many more birthdays after her 95th. “Last I talked to her we were teasing each other about how long we’re going to live,” she said. “We said we want to be like Moses and live to be 120!”
“It’s her secret weapon. I don’t think it’s for everyone — don’t try it at home!” Wendie joked.
