We rejoiced at the news Betty White would appear on an episode of Saturday Night Live, now SNL's executive producer has cleared up whether or not White will be hosting the show. The episode will air on May 8.
Michaels says that as the live show's oldest host, she can perform "as much as she wants to do" but adds that the physical demands of the show led him to plan the cast reunion, though make no mistake: White is the solo host.
She's flattered and flabbergasted by the attention: "It's lovely, and at my age it's certainly unexpected." And she's not worried about the workload: "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 isn't slowing down anytime soon. In addition to being pre-nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award, being "thisclose" to hosting SNL, having recently starred in a popular Super Bowl commercial and a hit movie, the Golden Girl has now landed a role in the TV Land comedy pilot Hot in Cleveland opposite of Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves and Wendie Malick, according to The Wrap.
As if all of that wasn't enough to herald White the reigning Queen of Pop Culture— as our Jamey Giddens recently declared her on a Daytime Confidential podcast— Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson told the ladies on The View "I think Betty White is probably one of the sexiest women in America" He continued, “She’s vibrant; it’s sexy. I think the more age the better.”

Uh oh, those Douglas women will be on the loose again! Betty White chatted with TV Guide Magazine about her alter ego's visit with her daughters Stephanie and Pam and what The Bold and the Beautiful viewers can expect.
The fans won’t like this one bit. Ann’s a royal pain in the ass but we love her for that. We don’t want her dead. READ MORE Ann doesn’t want to see Ann dead! I think she’s starting to get panicky and doesn’t want to face death. In her mind she didn’t show up in Los Angeles to make amends with her girls. She’d never admit she’s been less than perfect as a mother. But she’s losing her power. She’s losing control. She wants to get rid of some of the old garbage, so it’s nice for her to be with Stephanie and Pam and resolve some issues that have been sticky for a while. She must have looked in the mirror one morning and said, “My God, Ann, you’re getting older. We better get some things resolved.” Of course, I do that every morning!
