Betty White Confirmed As Saturday Night Live Host
Every time I see Betty White now I want a Snickers. Like right now.
After White’s Superbowl commercial for snickers (lol, t”hat’s not what your girlfriend said”) Betty White fans took to Facebook and started a guerrilla campaign to get the Golden Girl a hosting gig on SNL, stat. Their patronage paid off and White is officially taking on a Saturday Night Live Mother’s Day special along with six former female cast members: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Molly Shannon, Maya Rudolph, Ana Gasteryer and Rachel Dratch.
Many of these women are moms themselves and while the 88-year-old funny lady has no children of her own Lorne Michaels, the show’s creator-producer, told People, “She’s the mother of us all in comedy.” Well said. White is the mom to Pontiac, her golden retriever, and while she was out for a stroll on Tuesday the animal lover stopped to say hello to another pooch.
Perhaps Robert Pattinson fans should get on the ball and campaign for a cameo for in May with his crush.
