Ladies Night on ‘SNL’ – May 8

It’s ladies night and the feel is right with Betty White in the center of it all for her upcoming hosting gig on Saturday Night Live.  Joining the former “Golden Girls” co-star on the May 8th show are six femmes fatales from SNL past.  Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Molly Shannon, Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch and Ana Gasteyer are all on deck to perform.  Betty got the Mother’s Day Eve spot due to a Facebook page that was started begging the powers-that-be to put White in the SNL limelight.   A few hundred thousand fans of the page got the attention of show creator Lorne Michaels and the rest is history.  As of today, the “Betty White to Host SNL” Facebook page has well over a half a million fans.  I wouldn’t be surprised if there was some sort of Facebook skit involved in the show which is expected to draw huge ratings.  Betty says she never wanted to host and turned it down three times before but this time her agent said if she didn’t do it, he would divorce her.  So all those actresses in Hollywood in their 40s, 50s and 60s who claim ageism is the reason they aren’t getting enough work, I say maybe those gals just don’t have the magic of this 88 year old who couldn’t be hotter.  So hot in fact, Betty has a new hot dog named after her, recently unveiled at the opening of Pink’s Hot Dogs in Universal City – the Naked Hot Dog because the star likes her frankfurters plain.   Betty is just plain amazing – we salute you Ms. White!
