The 91-year-old has had many accomplishments during her career over the last 74 years. She has won many awards, but this is the first time she has been honored this way.
The well-loved actress has earned the record for “Longest TV Career for an Entertainer (Female).”

Following a Facebook campaign to get her the job, White became the oldest person to have hosted "Saturday Night Live" in May 2010.
White reacted to her Guinness World Records honor by saying:
“I was astounded when [Guinness World Records] called to tell me. Who? Me!?! It’s such as honor. The book has always been fascinating to me. I can’t believe I’m now associated with it.”
