    Please forgive me for posting here asking for help, but my family is desperate and as a father I have to try and do everything I can think of to help my family🙏
    Could you please help🙏
    My family’s and My life matter too❤
    I am needing help from someone that has the means to help please🙏
    I have never asked for help before in my life and I am very sorry to ask now. I have done everything I can so far trying to get help.
    I am at the point of not knowing what to do and I am needing to get my family away from a criminal that I put in prison for almost two years that hurt my daughter. He is out of jail and the court system here allowed for him to move back in the same small town we live in. This criminal is psycho and has revenge in mind for my family, long story……
    Maybe someone out there will read this and be able to help in some way?
    I have been trying to reach out to Australia and the American government for financial help that is owed to me from America for 2+ years now. I have gotten no help, I can’t even get anyone to return my phone calls or emails from America. Now I have to resort to posting everywhere and everyday in hopes that I catch the attention of someone that has the power or means that can help me, so I can help my family of 4 children. This is only a small part of my sad story.
    I am a American citizen here in Australia and disabled, I get no help from America! My disability is from having a stroke due to me having to go through putting a criminal in prison  singlehandedly, while me not killing him for hurting my 12 year old daughter at the time! I did what the police would not do here in Australia. I finally got Danny Brett in jail for 16 months, I lost over $60,000+ and was never able to get it back, this money I lost was from the result of the criminal getting me to build a house for my family, on one of his properties before I knew what he was and what he was doing to my daughter. My family and I had to walk away from it all and lose everything that I put into it along with all my money and 2 years of hard labor in building.
    Now I have lost everything once again from the coronavirus killing our business and all of our saved and borrowed investment, I get no help for the loss of the business due to my wife having to care for me because of my disabilities. We have lost $40,000+ on the business, not counting what we could have made if the business had been successful. Like I said before I have been trying to get disability pension payments for over two years now from the American government, I have been unable to get anyone in America to Help.
    My family considers me a hero, but I don’t feel like one. I do feel that I at least deserve the help that is owed to me by the American government, this is for me, for over 22 years of working in America and always putting the required money in my social security! My family here in Australia needs a safe and permanent home. This criminal is out of jail now and we are stuck in the same town, not able to afford to do anything at the moment.
    I pray🙏 every day to be able to support and give what is needed for my family. If you would like to know more of the story,  you can read @
    I have documented proof of this criminal and more of my story on my website, I am not a scam and I am not a liar. I am just desperate to protect my family, because the police here will not.
    If anyone is able to help, I would be so very greatful, no matter what it might be.
    May we all survive these testing times with the love and dignity that we are meant to be❤

    Betty White has been around long enough to recognize the bleach drinkers would need the assurance that unicorns weren’t hurt, too funny. Love to all.

    Something Interesting, Unicorns are actually real. But instead of calling them Unicorns, people call them Rhinoceros.

  • JohnnyNosebleed 2 years ago

    I feel like there have been a few other good stories from SNL alumni about Betty White’s somewhat infamous manager. Who else was talking about him? I wanna say Mulaney or Hader… or maybe Will Forte? Anyone remember?

  • Susie Dupuy 2 years ago

    Unicorn sketch was weird.

  • Ernesto Marcos 2 years ago

    I remember that time Betty was on SNL, she joked about how they said Facebook helped you reconnect with your old friends and she’d need a Ouija board for that. Good thing they didn’t do the Unicorn sketch o.O

    Does he look like jimmy Fallon with a Bieber haircut or is it just me?

  • Pop Land 2 years ago

    Betty White was 88 when she did SNL!! Take that in for a second, when most of her contemporaries were retired or sadly passed on, she made record as the oldest person ever to host SNL and won an Emmy for it!

    Jason is such a handsome douchebag-amazing hair-but garbage person.

    I’m really enjoying these informal, unscripted interviews. It’s different from the classic desk/chair format; more genuine.

    you can tell that after he first says, “Betty white,” his sentence isn’t over but it cuts to a question from seth.

    If Betty White disapproves of your idiocy, you should consider yourself served.
    We all love Betty White and merely laugh AT you.
