It's confirmed. It's happening!
Betty White will be hosting Saturday Night Live on May 8th! She will be hosting a Mother's Day episode of SNL.
Also joining her for this "very special episode" will be former SNL castmates Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Molly Shannon, Ana Gasteyer, and Rachel Dratch. I've always found the women of SNL funnier than the men, so this should be awesome. There have been lots of rumors about none of the cast or crew liking Cheri Oteri, so her absence from this list is pretty telling.
This all started from a Facebook campaign created by one of her fans. When he created the page, he said, "If it happens, all I want are tickets to the show." Hopefully he gets them. Of course, a lot of other campaigns are springing up on Facebook, but so far, the Betty White one is the only one to really get any traction.
Betty has recently reminded us of her acting chops during her Lifetime Achievement Award acceptance speech at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, and a Super Bowl Snickers commercial.
I'm really looking forward to this. It should be a hoot!
