The television icon best known for her work on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” “Golden Girls” and most recently “Hot in Cleveland” has put herself up for auction.
Yes, that's right - you can win a date with Betty White.
Betty White and President Obama already seem to be fairly good pals - he wished White a happy birthday earlier this year, and she later made a visit to the White House. Now, fans of the 90-year-old star are hoping she'll show up to support Obama at the Democratic National Convention.
Petitioners have taken to Facebook and Change.org to encourage Dems to let the "Hot in Cleveland" actress say a few words of introduction ahead of the president on Thursday in hopes she'll surpass Clint Eastwood's chair talk at the Republican National Convention last week.
With a show business career spanning 63 years and counting, is there anything Betty White still wants to do?
"My answer to every question is Robert Redford,” White told CNN, “but I've never met him and I don't want to meet him. I've taken his name in vain so many times I'd be embarrassed if I met him.”
Better a few decades late than never!
Betty White is the latest star to get a waxen look-a-like courtesy of Madame Tussauds, and the Hollywood outpost of the museum unveiled White's wax figure on Monday.
"This is such a thrill, and such an honor, and don't think I take it lightly, and don't think I take it for granted," White said at the big reveal. "I am the luckiest old broad on two feet."
You’re never too old to tweet.
“Hello Twitter!” Betty White posted on Tuesday. “And they said it would never happen. Oh wait, that was me.”
White used the social networking site to promote her new NBC show, “Betty White’s Off Their Rockers,” but the Golden Girl doesn't need the “Punk’d”-like hidden camera series to prove she’s a certified prankster.
Betty White is turning 90, and NBC is throwing a party! TV Guide reports that the "Golden Girl's" birthday bash will be aired as a special in mid-January.
The senior star’s "dinner-style" celebration will air right around her January 17 birthday.
Betty’s current and past co-stars are expected to offer tributes during the event. In addition to actors from “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and “Hot in Cleveland,” NBC funny ladies are also expected to provide send-ups.
