BETTY WHITE - PLANNING FOR 90TH BIRTHDAY
PASADENA, Calif. (AP) -- Betty White says her plans for her upcoming 90th birthday might include "a little vodka on the rocks." White turns 90 on January 17. The night before, on January 16, NBC is airing a birthday special for White. It'll be packed with stars including her "Hot in Cleveland" friends and Hugh Jackman, Ellen DeGeneres, Carl Reiner, Morgan Freeman, Tina Fey, Ray Romano, Seth Meyers and Tracy Morgan. Plus many of her castmates from previous shows will honor her, like Mary Tyler Moore and Ed Asner. NBC also has picked up a "Candid Camera"-like prank show featuring senior citizens that White will host. It's called "Betty White's Off Their Rockers." It's not on the schedule yet. White says right she's there to make sure the humor is not mean-spirited. In most of the cases, young people are the butt of jokes in the show.
