At age 89 (soon to be 90), Betty White is one of the hottest and most sought after comediennes currently working today and now NBC has nabbed her for a new reality show called BETTY WHITE’S OFF HER ROCKER.
In the series, she gets septuagenarians to do outrageous “hidden camera” pranks. Though the show doesn’t currently have a release date, White did appear at today’s NBC TCA press event to speak about her fortunate career that seems to be getting hotter every year.
“I’m having the time of my life,” says White. “Usually you’re sweating out ‘when is the next job coming up’ and all of that. Who at this age is lucky enough to be working as much as I am. First of all, on a series that I absolutely love with three of the most wonderful gals that ever drew breath. My book got published and it’s doing very well [and I have a] second book this year. I’m the luckiest old broad on two feet. I promise you, and I don’t take it for granted for one single minute.”
The actress also notes that people tell her she needs to slow down, but she says it’s what drives her.
“I’m not only blessed with good health, but good energy,” says White. “I can credit my folks for the genes that put that together, but I can’t get over that at this age, I don’t feel this age. I’m not trying to be any younger. I’m not lying about my age. If I were lying about my age, I would say I was 89.”
