Betty White Confirms She's Headed To 'Saturday Night Live'

Betty White says she will, in fact, be heading to “Saturday Night Live” this season.

According to People, when the 88-year-old actress was asked if she was doing the NBC show at Elton John’s 18th annual Oscars viewing party on Sunday night, she answered, “Yes.”

“I don’t know why or how,” she said, “but it’s been wonderful.”

The actress reportedly did not offer up any details on when she might appear on the show or if she would serve as host.

A massive online push to get the former “Golden Girl” on the NBC comedy show appears to have helped. “The Betty White to Host SNL (please?)!” Facebook page has almost 500,000 fans.
