Betty White and the rest of the "Golden Girls" are the subject of tabloid headlines implying that they disrespected their late co-star Estelle Getty by not attending her funeral.
ET was exclusively behind the scenes of "Million Dollar Password" with Betty to get the straight scoop.
"We were with Estelle when it mattered," Betty tells ET. "I didn't go to her funeral and Paul, her wonderful caretaker, knew I wasn't going to her funeral."
Getty, who suffered from advanced dementia, died at her Hollywood home on July 22.
While it is true that neither Betty, nor Rue McClanahan, nor Bea Arthur attended the private memorial service, Betty says that Estelle would be mad at the tabloid reports.
"Funerals are about [journalism] … who was there and who wasn't? That's not about Estelle," Betty says. "We adored her. To tell you the truth, her passing is tough on us, but it's a blessing for her. She's been so ill for so long, she's in a better place now, wherever she is."
