Exclusive! Betty White and Sandra Bullock’s Backstage Reunion
Sources tell BettyConfidential about what went down behind the scenes between America’s sweethearts.
Betty White was proud to be there for Sandra Bullock at the MTV Movie Awards. “When Betty heard she and Sandra would be together at the MTV Movie Awards she gave Sandra a call to tell her how thrilled she is to be seeing her again,” a backstage eyewitness tells BettyConfidential. “Betty and Sandra grew close when filming The Proposal. They’re both comedians and just hit it off telling each other one joke after the other – even dirty ones.
“Betty felt bad when she heard the news that Sandra’s husband Jesse cheated on her and sent Sandra her love and all the best. Betty didn’t want to pry too much into Sandra’s affairs, so she just told her that her friends are there for her.”
The octogenarian was elated to see her pal Sandra again. “Betty couldn’t wait to see her,” adds our source. “So much has happened in their lives (Betty recently lost her dear friend Rue McCallaghan) that it was a bittersweet reunion. They hugged and laughed so much backstage. Sandra also told Betty she was one of the people on Facebook who voted for her to be on Saturday Night Live.
“Sandra also said that for that hour and a half she watched Betty on SNL, she laughed so much that she almost forgot about her problems. It was a good distraction for her. She told Betty, ‘Laughter is truly the best medicine.’”
Sandra, of course, showed Betty her personal stack of pictures of her son, Louis, adds the source. “Sandra looked good. You can still see the pain in her face, but her personality is right back where it was before the scandal hit.”
