The 3,000-square-foot Brentwood home that once belonged to late television icon Betty White has been destroyed, a year after the “Golden Girls” star died in December 2021.

White’s assistant, Kiersten Mikelas, announced the estate’s demolition with an Instagram post shared on Sunday.

“This is such a busy time of year and coming up on the anniversary of Betty’s passing is hitting in ways I hadn’t anticipated,” Mikelas wrote. “Her Brentwood home is no more (save the fireplaces which will be gone in short order).”

Mikelas’ photo depicted the remaining fireplace structure and an excavator machine in a dirt lot. In the comments, the actor’s fans wondered why White’s home had been reduced to rubble.

“This is terrible! Why demolish such a beautiful icons home not even a full year after her passing?!,” wrote one user.

“Why in the world would they tear it down?,” commented another.

But as several followers noted, the home was set for demolition months ago.

In April, White’s Colonial-style home hit the market for $10.575 million. The Brentwood abode was listed as a tear-down, meaning that the incoming owners could destroy the property to create a new one.

White and her husband Allen Ludden purchased the home in the 1960s. In addition to its bright yellow accent doors and windows, the Emmy winner’s estate boasted five bedrooms and six bathrooms, parklike grounds and a swimming pool.

“I promise a wonderful tribute to our most wonderful lady very soon!!!!” she wrote.

Six days after suffering a stroke, White died on Dec. 31, 2021, in her Brentwood home. She was 99.

In addition to “The Golden Girls,” White was known for many television and film projects, including “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” “Hot in Cleveland” and “The Proposal.”

In June, the Brentwood address sold for $10.678 million, People reported.

After sharing news of the demolition, Mikelas ended her Instagram post on a positive note.

Jenna Ortega’s Biggest Regret? Wednesday Scene Fans Can’t Stop Talking About

Despite the ultimate fan love she received for the viral Wednesday dance, the actress seems to think she could have done better.

Quickly becoming one of Netflix‘s biggest hits ever, Wednesday is marching through Twitter threads, TikTok videos, and Instagram reels and garnering views and likes months after the premiere. All of this thanks to the show’s most popular scene — the Wednesday dance to The Cramps’ Goo Goo Muck at the school disco at Nevermore.

However, speaking with Entertainment Tonightat the Golden Globes ceremony, the show’s main star Jenna Ortega revealed that she isn’t fully satisfied with the final result.

“There was so much I could have done and should have done. So, the fact that anyone has shown any appreciation or even tried it themselves is unfathomable to me,” the actress said, commenting on the Wednesday dance’s viral popularity.

Ortega choreographed the dance herself, somehow managing to combine improvisation and old goth moves. Besides, she also revealed that she had to film the scene while having coronavirus — something that the actress and the production were heavily criticized for.

Still, despite Ortega’s apparent regrets, the dance scene is probably the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Netflix’s Wednesday. This all started with a TikTok edit that popularized the dance, but with a high-pitched remix of Lady Gaga‘s Bloody Mary instead of the original soundtrack.

Now, Netflix has greenlit Wednesday for a second season — and even used Bloody Mary to promote the upcoming sequel, apparently nodding to the viral song choice. The premiere date for Wednesday season 2 is yet to be announced.
