I’ll Have What Betty White’s Having
What’s up with Betty White? I always figured that by the time I reach seventy, if I reach seventy, I’ll just rest on my imaginary laurels and coast through whatever’s left of my life. Betty White, on the other hand, is reported to be eighty-nine years old and has just announced her latest project.
Betty is going with the flow and teaming up with NBC for a reality show. Nope, she’s not moving in with the cast of Jersey Shore (but imagine if she did!); based on the opinion of the many people who have told her she’s off her rocker, Betty’s new show is Betty White’s Off Their Rockers, according to Associated Press.
Seven seniors band together to play pranks on younger people, and if you don’t see the comedy in that, just ask my kids (although I doubt they find a lot of humor in what I do; maybe you should talk to my grandkids). Once you hit a certain age, the pranks are endless (feigning a heart attack, feigning a stroke, feigning Alzheimer’s).
I doubt that Betty White’s seniors will be as mean-spirited as I, but I’ll bet the Emmy-winning White has a few very funny tricks up her sleeve. In addition to Betty White’s Off Their Rockers, White continues to appear on Hot in Cleveland (TV Land) and has a book set for release in May, If You Ask Me (And of Course, You Won’t). I'll bet she wouldn't turn down any good movie offers, either. Which leaves me with two comments for Betty, “You go, Girl!,” and “How the heck do you do it—and where can I get some?”
