White, 93, spoke to Oprah Winfrey for Sunday's Oprah: Where Are They Now? and said that her major regret was not marrying her husband a year earlier.
They were together for 18 years before he died.
"I spent a whole year, wasted a whole year, that Allen and I could have had together, saying 'No' I wouldn't marry him," White told Oprah, referring to the year it took for her to accept Ludden's proposals. "Saying, no, I won't leave California. No, I won't move to New York. I wasted a whole year we could have had together."
She added, with a smile, "But, we made it. We finally did."
