Long Live the Queen HoodieBuddie

Haven't you always wanted Betty White on your T-shirt?

The public wants to see Betty White in everything from NBC's "Community" to a pin-up calendar, so it makes sense that clothing emblazoned with her cheerful face wouldn't be far behind.

Jerry Leigh Apparel has partnered with the 88-year-old star to bring you a line of T-shirts and hoodies that will debut in stores in August.

The hoodies come equipped with  MP3 player-ready washable earbuds, and bear slogans like "Long Live the Queen" and "White Heat" along with a likeness of White, for which Jerry Leigh Apparel snagged an exclusive license.

Portions of the sales from the T-shirts and hoodies will go towards the animal health organization Morris Animal Foundation, for which White is a trustee.

If you can't wait until August, you can buy a Betty White HoodieBuddie here.

    @ Betty White Haters: You guys are just full of seething rage! Is it because you think YOU won't reach the age of 88 and if you do, no one will celebrate you as people celebrate Betty White? Or that, even at 88, she's doing more in her life than you could ever HOPE to?

    Betty, ROCK ON!

    I wonder what it's like to be a "commodity", just a dollar sign, even in the winter of your life? I think Ms. White is being "handled" because her appeal (too the public) can make X amount of dollars before she's gone. I sure hope she enjoys what's left to the fullest. Course the cash can always support her love of animals and she seems (or maybe I'm hoping) to be a human being.

    isn't the point here, that you can reach 88 and still have life in you. I like the fact that she's still treading water in polluted ocean. There must be some truth to the old saysing "youth is waisted on the young", but how wonderful is 20-20 hindsight.

    I'll take one of those and wear it with pride! Betty is real and the best – more power to her! How refreshing to be REALLY entertained. You want to talk about over exposed?? Lohan mess – Obama mess – Cruise crap – Tori who cares – Pitt and Jolen – "Ugly Spenc and that mess of wife – reality this and that – now that's over exposed! Entertainment should be just that – entertainment!

    If you l ike Betty and DON'T like Andy Rooney (60 Minutes), then please join this group on Facebook. Type in the search box "Betty White Takes Down Andy Rooney". She could nicely replace his geezerly segment with her cuteness and humor.

    Betty White is truly an inspiration. At her age she is still making people laugh. With so much going wrong in the world today, I feel she gives hope for longevity and good health. Maybe this is a little deep for some but it's true. Instead of making rude comments about her, why don't you let the people that do enjoy her do just that. And yes, I would definitely wear her t-shirt.

      I agree with you, Mary. Betty is the bomb! We should all be so lucky to live as long as she has and still be so sharp and healthy! She IS truly an inspiration. She's funny, smart and has done so much for animal rights. You internet trolls need to get a life!

    This reminds of the 70's when any celeb who came out with a catch phrase or hook got a t-shirt. This too will pass.

    I found Betty White to be a very bad actress in the new sitcom she is in. I cringe whenever she opens her mouth. With all due respect to you, Ms. White, please stop acting and just go away.

    Glow-There was nothing crude about these people remarks. If the Truth hurts ignore it. If there was an 80 year-old man doing the same stuff as Betty White Glow would be there gripping about it. Age is not an excuse for bad manners or bad morals. In fact, Betty White is getting closer to doing a dirt nap she needs to stay clean with God more.

    I can't wait to wear one of these t-shirts with Betty's picture on it! She's a cool broad with a great sense of humor and I love every show she's on. If you don't like her, don't watch her shows. Personally, I can't stand Jen Anniston, so I don't watch her movies or anything she's in on TV, but I don't go around being rude about her. I just don't watch her shows. Get over the rude crap; it gets old, and makes you look like a trolling teenager.

    Betty is not the nre beauty on the block. She has won Emmys before she was on Mary Tyler Morre she won for her role as Sue Ann Nives with the wonder of the writers with killing perfection. As a Golden Girl, another Emmy winner performance. She has played in some many films and TV shows.

    This time is another generation discovering her works of wit and one hell of a woman. I am part of her second generation of adorning her.

    Go Betty, you have charmed us for years.

    Yes, enough with Betty White; and no, I won't wear a T-Shirt with BW on it, let alone anyone else...she's been great with animal right, etc; her earlier acting she was the queen, but, lately it's been vugar and she's losing ground with me.

      I used to love Betty in all the stuff that she used to do. I supported the SNL thing on Facebook too. But now its gone way over the top and it is getting a little bland. The new show she's in isn't funny its dull and this shirt looks stupid. I'm in no way jealous – just sick of hearing about her, Valerie and the rest of the "club" on Wednesday night. They are OVER RATED!

      You tell someone else to get a life yet you wasted time here commenting and criticizing others for their spelling. If you don't like her, that's too bad. Maybe you should go somewhere else where your pitiful commentary has meaning.
