Betty White has fond memories of the late Richard Dawson, her smooch-happy co-panelist on the long-running competition program Match Game, who died on Saturday night due to complications related to esophageal cancer.
"We used to have such fun," White, 90, gushed to PEOPLE on Monday, right after she unveiled her wax figure at Madame Tussaud's Hollywood.
"Never give celebrities a Crayola and a pad because you get yourself in lots of trouble," added White, referring to Match Game, on which contestants tried to match the celebrities panelists' answers to fill-in-the-blank questions.
Referring to her old pal as "Dickie," White recalled how their antics would "crack us up."

The former Golden Girls star is paying a visit to Hewitt's racy Lifetime show, The Client List, about single mom Riley Parks, who works at The Rub of Sugar Land, a day spa in Texas that offers a little more than standard massage therapy.
In the show's season finale, Riley, played by Hewitt, will be left in charge of the spa when her boss goes on vacation.

What if Betty White isn't so crazy about Ryan Seacrest after all?
Amid much publicity, the star of the new NBC show Off Their Rockers finally started Tweeting at age 90, posting a flirty message about the American Idol host on her verified account.
But the next morning, Valerie Bertinelli, who costars on White's other show, TV Land's Hot in Cleveland, stirred up the Twitter-verse by suggesting White's account (which now has more than 144,000 followers) was not legit.

Betty White may be 90, but the babies want to be just like her!
The Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association announced this week that a baby orangutan born at the Los Angeles Zoo has been named Elka, after the nonagenarian's Hot in Cleveland character, Elka Ostrovsky.
White, who wrote about her passion for zoo in a book released last year, has been a supporter of the Los Angeles Zoo for 50 years, and Hot in Cleveland's network, TV Land, provided a gift to support the zoo and White's commitment to it.

"Dream big, dream fierce." The real-life ladies of The Help would have agreed with Viola Davis, it's worth it.
Accepting the trophy for female actor in a leading role for the period drama, Davis told the audience gathered at L.A.'s Shrine Exposition Center for Sunday night's Screen Actors Guild Awards: "What is there [in life] but a dream. You can't trade in your dream for another dream. I am so proud to be an actor."
It's an appropriate motto for a cast who were also recognized for their work in the film as an ensemble, the top honor of the night.

Betty White is getting the best of both worlds when it comes to celebrating her 90th birthday – a giant party with all her friends and a nice quiet afternoon at home.
The first part of the festivities happened Sunday in Los Angeles, where NBC taped a TV special, Betty White's 90th Birthday: A Tribute to America's Golden Girl, at which friends and colleagues feted White.
But come Jan. 17, her actual birthday, White – a renowned animal lover – plans to kick back with one special friend in particular.

They like them. They really, really like them.
Screen Actors Guild members were so enamored with Glenn Close and Betty White this year that they nominated each actress twice for SAG Awards.
Close, 64, picked up two best-actress nods – one in the film category for Albert Nobbs, in which she plays a woman masquerading as a man in order to make a living in 19th-century Ireland; and one in the TV-drama category for Damages.
White, 89, also earned two best-actress nods – one in TV comedy for her sitcom Hot in Cleveland; and one in the TV movie or miniseries category for Hallmark Hall of Fame: The Lost Valentine, a modern-day story about a woman whose Navy husband went missing in World War II.
