Now that Neil Patrick Harris has graduated from hosting The TV Land Awards to the mother-f’in Tonys, it’s time for a full press offensive to generate buzz! Helping things is Queerty‘s favorite gossip gay Marc Malkin from E!, who managed to combine two of our other favorite things: Harris and Betty White.
MALKIN: Now I gotta ask you about How I Met Your Mother. You know we’ve been running the stories about you wanting Betty White as one of Barney’s next conquests. And now Betty recently told us she wants to do it, and she wants to be the one who comes onto you.
HARRIS: I mean, I’m getting physically aroused that you’re telling me this. I don’t know what to say. I’m at a loss for words and need a few minutes to myself.
And I’m turning red for some reason.
I love it. I know that everyone at How I Met Your Mother is a huge fan of Betty’s, but I feel like I’ve turned this into a bigger story, and I don’t know if it could ever meet my expectations. Well, that’s not true. There’s one way that Betty White could meet my expectations.
Wow, your voice just got deeper and there’s a visual in my head now with you and Betty.
You and me both.
