With two TV shows ("Betty White's Off Their Rockers" and "Hot in Cleveland") currently on her schedule, there's no question that Betty White is still red hot at 90 (or pretty much any other age). And now she's about to get even hotter, at a Friar's Club roast to be held Wednesday. It might not be the most comfortable evening of her life, but White told TODAY's Ann Curry she's ready to take it on the chin.
"I'm scared about," she said at first of the roast. "I have no idea what's going to happen." But a moment later, she added, "Bring it on. We'll handle it the best we can. The most I'd have to do is run away from home."
Not likely, now that both "Rocker" and "Cleveland" are success stories. White wondered to Curry about having two hit shows: "Is it greed? Do you think it's greed?"
But, as she acknowledges, it's not just about being healthy and happy in her 10th decade of life: There's a lot of luck involved, too. "I am the luckiest old broad on two feet, trust me," she said. "I love what I do. I'm blessed with good health and great energy, so what's to say 'no' to?"
She paused, slyly looking around the studio. "Well, I know what's to say 'no' to. I used to."
White returned for the fourth hour of TODAY to chat with Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb. Check it out:
