Betty Hutton Quotes About Marriage and Life:

Betty Hutton: "My husbands all fell in love with Betty Hutton. None of them fell in love with me."

Betty about her life: "My marriages have not been happy, my children didn't bring me happiness, nothing has brought me true happiness until I discovered Catholicism ... I was raking in the dough hand over fist. Money was no problem, but love was a problem. Nobody loved me unless i bought them, and so I bought everybody."
