Betty White has referred to herself as a “cougar” in a promo for her upcoming hosting gig for Saturday Night Live on May 8th. At age 88 Betty White is still a pistol. Her wit is immense. She will be a hoot as the host of SNL on Mother’s Day.
The NY Daily News reports that in the promo Betty jokes “Do you know they call me a cougar and they say I’m dating a young hottie?” Ha ha, that sums up the sweet yet snarky humor Betty has always done so well.
America Adores Betty White
Since her time on “Mary Tyler Moore” and “Golden Girls” America loves Betty. There was a Facebook movement after her funny appearance with Abe Vigoda in a Super Bowl commercial to get SNL to let her host the show. 500,000 fans on Facebook asked SNL to give White an opportunity as host.
Betty is the people’s comic; her wit appeals to people of all generations. She’s an adorable vixen who mixes in a bit of tart humor with her sweet demeanor. You just never know what she will say. That is the fun of Betty White!
Great Example for Women
Betty is aging very well. She is still beautiful and lively. She is also very active in her career too. Approaching 90 hasn’t slowed her down at all. She’s a role model for women (and men) everywhere.
White talked about her upcoming SNL appearance to MTV “It’s lovely, and at my age it’s certainly unexpected. I’ve got so much energy. It’s ridiculous. I love working. My schedule is a feverish one, and I’m used to that.”
Betty White Previously Turned Down SNL 3 Times
Betty must want to have some new experiences lately. Previously she turned down offers to host SNL 3 times, notes MTV. She said “It’s so New York, and I’m not New York at all.”
What Topics Will Betty Pillory?
It will be interesting to see what kind of comedic skits Betty does on SNL. She speaks her mind frequently about issues in the news so she’s ready to cover most any topic. Maybe she’ll even do a few more cougar jokes.
Betty could do fun impersonations of Hillary Clinton, Heidi Montag, or Gwen Stefani too. Betty’s talent is immense. It will be so much fun to see how SNL uses this comic to create a memorable show.
Vive Betty White! It will be an historic moment to see an 88-year-old woman up on the stage of SNL entertaining America. This will be an episode of SNL that a lot of people will want to have forever on DVD.
