Betty White to drop her Depends for Playboy Magazine..



Betty White, 91, is getting more press these days then Miley Cyrus; will Betty really get naked for Playboy?

 Why is White so darn white hot? It’s simple; she’s a class act and funny as a roller skating crack head. Audiences are hungry for real talent these days, given the presses fascination with current crop of reality ‘stars’ who are desperately trying to stay in the press, and are running more scared then roaches when you turn on the kitchen light; real actors are back, bitch.

Nielsen Media Research provides statistics on specific demographics as advertising rates are influenced by such factors as age, gender, race, economic class, and area. Younger viewers are considered more attractive for many products- which mean, most actors, especially female are put out to pasture after 40. White proves these graphics wrong-most of her fans that watch ‘Golden Girls’ in reruns are in their teens to early 30’s. People like to laugh damn it, no matter how old the actor is.

Betty White proves that older female actors can get ratings -and that 18-49 demographic that advertisers have a hard on for. TV needs to understand if you have an older person on TV; they can be bawdy, dirty and modern. When White hosted "Saturday Night Live." With White hosting the usually unfunny and rather dull show, had its highest ratings in two years. I won’t even go through the ‘kids’ they had hosting ‘SNL’ that year; but let’s say they sucked and fell on their faces in every sketch. I love young people, but give some of the older ones a chance, they are usually more funny and out there, and they don't have to take off their clothes to get attention.

White has a new TV show on TV Land, "Hot in Cleveland", as a sassy, pot smoking landlady; now heading towards a fifth season. Rather White takes up the offer to drop her Depends for ‘Playboy Magazine’ remains to be seen, but I’d buy it if White was in it. St Olaf be damned!
