Betty White To Host SNL on May 8!

Thank you for being a friend!

Betty White will host Saturday Night Live‘s special Mother’s Day episode on May 8, NBC has announced.

The ep will also reunite six former female SNL cast members: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Molly Shannon, Maya Rudolph, Ana Gasteyer and Rachel Dratch.

“Years ago, I turned [SNL] down three times,” Betty told USA Today. “It’s so New York, and I’m not New York at all. But my agent said he’d divorce me if I didn’t do it, and I love my agent.”

    I don’t think Betty meant anything like that at all. I think it is the face pace of NYC and of SNL and them making fun of others is what she meant.

    hmm.. can’t say I know who Betty White is but I’m guessing she’s some old dear probably best not suited for Saturday Night Live
