Betty-White-Wrecking-Ball.jpg

Betty White is taking some tips from Miley Cyrus in the latest promo for her television show Off Their Rockers.

Watch the 91-year-old actress spoof one of Miley’s most popular videos below! And before you ask, don’t worry, Betty fans — the video below is indeed twerk-free!

The 30-second TV spot starts off innocently enough with White telling viewers that she was asked to come up with a few ideas on how to promote the Lifetime premiere of series this Wednesday.

“I got some ideas from recent pop culture events that really got the kids talking,” White says before the video jumps to a scene of the actress crashing through a wall while riding a wrecking ball.

Unlike Miley, who chose to bare all in her latest music video however, Betty smartly chose to dress in an all-white tracksuit.

The video ends on the former Golden Girl asking if someone can bring her a sledgehammer.

Betty White wrote a cursive letter to the Internet

Betty White wrote a delightful letter asking fans to watch Wednesday’s live season premiere of Hot in Cleveland. The note begins “Dear Internet” and is basically perfect.

“Who knew at 91 that I would be blessed to work on yet another wonderful and fun sitcom!” White writes. “And boy, do I have a blast. Where else could I get to be a bride, a jailbird, a college freshman, and a fugitive in Amish Country?”

Later she promises, “I can guarantee you there will be no mistakes… that we can’t cover (or have fun trying!) Really what could possibly go wrong!?”

Check out the full note on Hot in Cleveland‘s Facebook page. The live episode airs tomorrow at 10 p.m. ET on TV Land, if you want to watch and make Betty happy!

Though it’s been over 30 years since the ladies appeared on a sitcom together, you’d never know it from their strong rapport. Here’s a sneak peek of Moore and Harper explaining why Mary Richards had such a hold on women. (Valerie’s explanation: “Mary is who you wish you were, Rhoda is who you probably are, and Phyllis is who you’re afraid you’ll become.”)

Bloop! NeNe Leakes gives Betty White wine-tossing tips -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Considering that Betty White has nearly 70 years of experience in the entertainment industry, and The New Normal star NeNe Leakes is still establishing herself as an actress, you’d think White would be the only one doling out tips during their meeting of the minds. But Leakes, a reality TV pro who competed on The Celebrity Apprentice and currently appears on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, has one up on White in the dramatic art… of throwing drinks in others’ faces.

For two new, Housewives-studded episodes of Betty White’s Off Their Rockers tomorrow night (the second features Beverly Hills‘ Adrienne Maloof, Camille Grammer, and Kyle Richards), Leakes pays White a visit, and hilarity ensues. Watch EW’s exclusive clip below. READ FULL STORY

'The Client List': Betty White is coming to The Rub as a guest star

When there’s funny sexual innuendo to possibly be had –  like on The Client List — you’ll likely find a certain actress slinking around: Betty White. EW has confirmed that the bawdy, 90-year-old actress has been booked to appear alongside Jennifer Love Hewitt on the sexy Lifetime drama’s season finale, which will air June 10 at 10 p.m.

The Client List focuses on Riley Parks (Hewitt), a masseuse who works at The Rub of Sugar Land, a Texas spa that offers massages — and then some — to its clients.

White pops up as Ruth Gibbons in the finale, which sees Riley in charge of The Rub when her boss Georgia (Loretta Devine) goes out of town. Gibbons, it turns out, is the wife of one of Riley’s clients and offers up some advice about how to make marriage last.

'Hot in Cleveland': 'Mary Tyler Moore' alum Ed Asner shows up! -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

As we told you back in December, Ed Asner is headed for a Mary Tyler Moore reunion with his old costar Betty White on TV Land’s throwback sitcom Hot in Cleveland. And now, EW has the exclusive first look at his role on the show, which finds him playing Jameson Lyons, the president of a prestigious country club in Cleveland.

The video below presents Asner in all his sitcom glory, going toe to toe with Cleveland‘s three hotties, Melanie (Valerie Bertinelli), Joy (Jane Leeves), and Victoria (Wendie Malick), as they make an attempt to join his country club.

In the clip, Elka (White) is nowhere to be found until near the end when it’s revealed that — wait for it — she used to work (in the name of all things Lou Grant, there’s the wink!) with Jameson, who fired her after he hit on her and she turned him down. Or so she says. Apparently, Elka spends the episode trying to avenge those wrongs from the past.

Jon Lovitz, James Patrick Stuart, and Maree Cheatham also guest star in the episode, which airs tonight on TV Land. Get a sneak peek of Asner on Hot in Cleveland here:
