Betty White Enjoying A ‘Golden’ Career Resurgence: Hosting ‘SNL’ May 8, Starring In New Sitcom

Betty White has had the kind of career resurgence that most 88 year old actors would never dream of. Since her role in the summer hit, The Proposal (pictured above with costar Sandra Bullock) she’s appeared regularly on Craig Ferguson‘s late night show and was featured in a Snickers commercial during this year’s Superbowl; proving she’s more than willing and able to keep doing what she loves. All of the exposure has succeeded in introducing her to a whole new set of fans. In February, over 500,000 users joined a facebook page that was organized as part of a campaign to get Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels to book to her to host the show. The ploy worked and White is set to host the May 8th episode. In addition to the SNL gig, the former Golden Girls star was recently bumped up from guest star to full fledged cast member of the TV Land series Hot in Cleveland. She joins a cast that includes Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie Malick and Jane Leeves. Who needs retirement when you can enjoy the fruits of a Golden career.
