Betty White may have been dumped by NBC, but she’s been picked up byGuinness World Records. The 2014 edition, out September 12, has awarded the 91-year-old actress the inaugural title of “Longest TV Career For An Entertainer (Female).” The new category is in recognition of White’s 74 years in the business. The career-length category previously was non-gender specific. Brit Bruce Forsyth holds the male title also with his 74 years in the industry. White began her career in radio in 1939, and she has won Emmys, SAG Awards and Grammys while appearing decade after decade in TV series such as Life With Elizabeth, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Golden Girls, and The Bold And The Beautiful. Guinness likely will have to update the award next year for White as she currently stars on TV Land’s Hot In Cleveland, which has been renewed for a fifth season.
