I always wondered, did Betty White really play the piano? Since more than one episode features her at the keys (notably "Big daddy's Little Lady" and "An Illegitimate Concern"), I figured she must really know how to play, but they seem to show her from angles where you can't clearly see the keys. Does anyone know if she really played?
Stan: Hey, the way you leave that back door open, any idiot could walk in here.
Sophia: Any idiot did!

Blanche: Honey, sometimes you have to stoke a man's fire a little.
Sophia: Words of wisdom from the human torch!

Blanche: A gay theater director! Have you ever heard of such a thing?
Dorothy: That's absolutely shocking! Next thing you know, they'll have black basketball players in the NBA.

No, Betty admitted in one of the GG specials (TV Tales or The Greatest Moments) that she does not know how to play the piano.

"Rose always played the piano, but of course Betty doesn't know how to play the piano. But Betty fakes it, as she does so many things." :rotfl:

Dorothy : Rose play or die!
¨Stanley : Sounds like the last few years of our marriage!
Dorothy : I wish it was that good!

I play piano, and I had a hard time believing Betty didn't. In the "Miami, Miami" scene, she's got her shoulder's moving, her "glitz" is timed (where you start at the top of the keyboard and pull your fingers down), and everything else just seemed "right."


She's a professional. That's all we can say!

Wow, that's so hard to believe! :blink: I really thought she played the piano in those episodes. Well, thanks for the info, guys! :)
