Gibbs, 90, who played maid Florence Johnston in 207 episodes of the 1970s sitcom “The Jeffersons,” announced on Instagram that she would be receiving the star on July 20.

In a four-photograph-video slide, Gibbs makes the comparison to longtime actress Betty White.

“Hello, Marla Gibbs here. I understand you were asked why didn’t you celebrate me the way you celebrate Betty White?” Gibbs says in the Instagram video. “Well, guess what? You do celebrate me and you love me and you support me. And that’s why I am getting a star on Hollywood Boulevard, child, on July 20 at 11:30 a.m. Yes, because of you.”

The third slide shows the invitation for the Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony, and the final one shows Gibbs posing with the 99-year-old White.

After “The Jeffersons,” Gibbs starred in a spinoff series, “227,” according to IMDb.com.
