Betty White to Appear in Everything
I think that America is in need of a new grandmother, because I’m kind of getting tired of Betty White.
Now hold on a minute before you hit submit on that “Logan Sux!” comment. I love Betty White just as much as everybody else does…but just like your real grandmother, it doesn’t matter how much you may love her, you still don’t want her around all the time.
Yet, within the last year it’s become near impossible to do anything without seeing Betty White. She’s in commercials, on TV shows, in more movies a month than Samuel L. Jackson, and yesterday I opened the local paper only to discover that she’s coming to my town. I kid you not.
And this morning I came across even more Betty news: The Hollywood Reporter is, um, Hollywood Reporting that Betty is all set to play a wacky anthropology professor in the season two premiere of Community. Now there’s some Betty White news I can get behind…assuming that her and Chevy get into some sort of old people fight.
Oh yeah, and a recent CHUD article (brilliantly titled “Enough with Betty White Already”) is claiming that White may be the front-runner for the George Burns role in the remake of Oh God! Okay, I admit that I’d see that as well.
But as for the forty million other films/shows/commercials/video games/hip hop albums that Betty White has planned for this year? Pass. Betty, I love you, but we kind of get the point: You do things that most old women wouldn’t for a laugh. We’re past that now. Let’s move on.
Oh, and my vote for America’s next wacky grandmother?
