The Envelope blog 'Ministry of Gossip' caught up with Betty White, who says her fate's in Lorne Michael's hands with regard to guest hosting Saturday Night Live.
MOG: "I just got off the phone with the legendary Betty White, and despite her busy schedule the actress hasn't missed the Facebook push to name her as a host of 'Saturday Night Live.'… 'I don’t know where that came from,' White said. 'That came out of left field. I understand they’ve had all of these hits.'
So is the 88-year-old up to the task of holding court at 30 Rock?
'That would be up to Lorne Michaels.'
White said she'd have to think on who her dream musical guest would be, because the showbiz veteran has plenty on her plate."
White also said Rue McClanahan is recovering from the stroke she suffered in January: "Ruesie had a little health problem, but she's back home in New York and feeling better. I’m delighted and thrilled to report that."
BTW, that Facebook – SNL group now has more than 300,000 fans.
