Betty White 'Saturday Night Live': Her muffin stole the show
Betty White, whose appearance on "Saturday Night Live" on May 8 was the result of a Facebook petition for the beloved 88-year-old actress to host the show, showed why she's got such a loyal fan base.
It's her muffin.
She seemed to channel her saucy Sue Ann Nivens in some skits and her clueless "Golden Girls" character Rose Nylund in others.
She totally saved the three (!) Macgruber skits by playing his lying grandmother. And they should clearly have cast her in the upcoming film verison of the "SNL" skit which was unceasingly promoted during the show. We counted three commercials for the Macgruber movie but there may have been more.
Still it was her Muffin Lady that got the biggest laughs.
"A lot of people like my pumpkin pie, and of course my carrot cake is legendary," White's bakery chef said while doing a radio show with two PBS cooking experts. "But if there's one thing I'm known for, it's my muffin."
The thinly veiled sexual innuendos to a vajayjay as the two hosts devoured and described the taste and texture of her muffin kept everyone laughing.
And towards the end, Jay Z's "Forever Young," paid tribute to her youthful spirit. Read Zap2it's SNL review here.
When do we start the Facebook petition to bring her back on?
Happy Mother's Day!
