Giveaway: Betty White HoodieBuddie by Jerry Leigh

Established in 1962, Jerry Leigh Apparel is the family-owned clothing designer behind the Betty White hoodies that we have featured in articles here on TDIV. With a philosophy of creating fashion that reflects consumers' lifestyles, the Van Nuys, Calif. based company obtained an exclusive license to print White’s likeness on their hi-tech hoodies.

Every HoodieBuddie includes machine washable earbuds and a 3.5mm headphone jack inside the pocket that plugs in mp3 players, phones, or any device with a compatible outlet.

In addition to the popular Betty White shop, Jerry Leigh offers a full line of hoodies for “girls” and “guys” in heavy-, light-, and medium weights and in a variety of colors.

As we’ve mentioned before a portion of all proceeds from the Betty White collection will benefit the Morris Animal Foundation.

  1. What an awesome hoodie! Favorite role has to be Rose on Golden Girls, although she was great on SNL as well.

  2. SO excited about this giveaway!!!! Betty White rocks, and so does that sweatshirt!!! :-) I loved her on SNL recently as well, but I guess my favorite is Rose on the Golden Girls.

  3. ahh yes, of course as rose on golden girls :) but anything she's been in, i've undoubtedly enjoyed. w00t betty white!

  4. Out of all the characters she has portrayed Rose Nylund has to be my favorite of all time. It may be the similar answer for many, many fans, but there was a sweet quirk about it.

  5. Rose Nylund on Golden Girls was definitely her best performance. She was hilarious and believable!

  6. I love Betty White as a Golden Girl, but I loved her on SNL too!

    @thosebells on Twitter.

  7. Of course her best role was Rose on The Golden Girls! I own Season 1 and working on getting all of them and also own a GG shirt! :)

  8. Man I so need this hoodie! I love Betty White and the fact that the hoodies have ear buds! Okay favorite acting role would have to be Betty White as Grandma Annie in The Proposal!

  9. I'm all for Betty White in every role she has done. But I more recently enjoyed her as Annie in The Proposal, her dancing to Get Low by Lil' Jon with Sandra Bullock was hilarious!

    "Let me see you get low...you scared you, scared you."

  10. I loved her as Ellen on the recurring "Family" sketches on The Carol Burnett Show--one of her few "Queen of Mean" roles!

  11. Oh man cant wait for this lovely hoodie!! My favorite role of Betty White is when she plays the lovable Rose Nylund in The Golden Girls

  12. I believe Betty White's best acting role was in Golden Girls as Rose Nylund. She has been great in Lake Placid, The Proposal, Hot In Clevland, and I can't wait to see her in "You Again" wearing my new HOODIE! ;)


  13. What a cool product!

    I'm a newsletter subscriber.

    I also vote for Rose Nylund on the Golden Girls, although she's a pleasure to watch in anything. (However I don't think Hot in Cleveland lives up to the potential of its cast.)

  14. Betty, you rock girl!! I love the video you made about the HoodieBuddie, Listen up, I am Betty F----- White!! You are a hoot girl. I want to live in a neighborhood, with you on one side of me and Ellen on the other, omg, I would have to live in depends 24/7, you would so keep me laughing..You are a Dear, my Mom passed away (I hate that word) in 1982, I was 25, she was my bestfriend,I miss her so.. You really remind me of her, so besides your talent, I feel my mom is near when I watch you..OK, so to the point, right?? My favorite role of Betty White was when she played Sue Ann Niven on the Mary Tyler Moore show....OMG, simple the best...xox Margie soberbabe91@yahoo.com

  15. Totally Rose Nylund! I hope I win! But if not, I know what to add to my Christmas list!

  16. Betty White's role in The Proposal. Her tribal dance scene is fantastic!

  17. I've been watching Golden Girls since I can remember and it remains the only show I actually watch on television. She has and will always be my favorite character. Rose Nylund is a timeless character and Betty White does comedy so well. She is a wonderfully sweet and hilarious woman and one I will always admire. Her newest jolt back to fame with young fans is well deserved. She is the kind of woman that should never fade away.
