After 74 years in the entertainment business, lovely lady Betty White has decades of television gold, numerous awards, a canceled hidden camera prank show, and now, her name in Guinness Book Of World Records to show for it. Deadline reports that for the upcoming 2014 edition, Guinness awarded the 91-year-old with the inaugural “Longest TV Career For An Entertainer (Female),” a new title that was created since White matched her male counterpart Bruce Forsyth’s time in the industry. Considering that TV Land picked up Hot In Cleveland for a fifth season, it looks like White is in the running to hold the title all her own come next year. Your move, Forsyth.
