Betty White has been trending on Twitter… but relax: it’s not for any bad reason!
White will turn 100 years old on January 17, 2022. It’s been announced the occasion will be marked with a one-night-only theatrical event streamed to 900 cinemas across the US. Tickets for “Betty White: 100 Years Young — A Birthday Celebration” go on sale today (Dec 17).
The event will take a look back at White’s life and career (yes, including The Golden Girls). Special guests will include Ryan Reynolds, Tina Fey, Robert Redford, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Clint Eastwood, Morgan Freeman, Jay Leno, Carol Burnett, Craig Ferguson, Jimmy Kimmel, Valerie Bertinelli, James Corden, Wendie Malick, and Jennifer Love Hewitt.
“Who doesn’t love a party?!? This one is gonna be great,” White said in a statement.

Twitter needs a color coding system for its trends so we don’t get scared every day.
Betty White and Jimmy Carter should show up as Green (alive).
Democracy should show up as Yellow (in danger).
Mark Meadows’ career should show up as Red (super dead).
