Betty White: ‘Just Let Her Stay Home and Lez

Betty White, returning Saturday Night Live to its proper place among intellectuals and Sarah Palin mobs, last night filed not just a riotous turn as host, but also stayed true to her gay roots. Brava, Bets.

“You’re barking up the wrong lesbian?” “If I could go back in time, I would lez it up 24 hours.” Aces.

    A very vocal supporter of the Gays and Gay marriage. From an 88 year old broad!! She deserves all the new found fans she is gaining. That scene was aces, we were rolling everytime she uttered “she’s a Lesbian”

    But we gots shortchanged!!!, No Golden Girls skit?????

    Remember, Betty White played Ellen DeGeneres’ mom in one of her earlier sit-coms.

    Last night’s SNL was the best it’s had in ages and it truly showed how outside of Kristen Wiig the show seriously needs help in the funny lady department.

    That said, Ms. White was EPIC as host and the returning castmastes didn’t steal her shine at all (which is something I had feared), the entire program was completely hers.

    Bravo to Betty White for proving that comedy doesn’t dwindle as age goes on, and for consistently proving to be the consummate funny lady for all these years.

    Shame she’s not a regular.

    Wonder if she’s planning anything next?

    Looooooved her last night. Fantastic. Also loved seeing all the old female cast members return for a night (Tina Fey, Anna Gasteyer, Rachel Dratch, Amy Poehler, Molly Shannon, etc)

    I LOVE Betty White, but I found the writing on last night’s episode weak. Other than “wizard of ass” I found the writing to be predictable and sophomoric.


    Never gonna be able to look at a muffin the same way again………… :-p

    If Lorne Michaels learns anything from what I’m sure were the best ratings this season, I hope it’s that it is time to end the sausage fest! Get more smart, funny women! Kristen Wiig, while awesome, can’t do it alone…

    Oh wow, I can’t believe I missed this. Betty White has always been one of my favorite actresses. I remember seeing her on several talk shows years ago and she was such a voice of reason and moderation but especially now.

    What was really funny was how this 88 and a half year old woman came on SNL and was naturally hipper and funnier than all the rest of the much younger cast members who try so hard to be hip and funny—and never are.

  • Bob

    If you missed it, it is on…..

  • Jaroslaw

    thanks Bob, but my DSL isn’t fast enough to play anything. But I will try to find a friend to play/record it. thanks again.

    @hephaestion: I thought that was Cloris Leachmen.
