BETTY WHITE IS NOT DEAD AND IS HAVING A BALL

Betty White


Stories all over social networks are reporting that Betty White is dead. Just to let everyone know, Betty is fine at age 92 and continues to go strong. I just got off the phone with one of her trusted friends, and Betty is just fine and full of energy. The Golden Girl is still Golden.  Her show Hot In Cleveland remains a top rated show and we can expect many more years from Betty White.

THE SUPERSTARS TO VISIT 'HOT IN CLEVELAND'

Heather Locklear



The ‘Cleveland’ ladies are back and hotter than ever! Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, Wendie Malick and Betty White return for the fourth season of TV Land’s hit sitcom “Hot in Cleveland,” taping in front of a live studio audience on Friday, August 31, and premiering Wednesday, November 28 at 10pm ET/PT. TV bombshell Heather Locklear (“Dynasty,” “Melrose Place,” “Spin City”) and Jay Harrington (“Better Off Ted”) will both be in multi-episode arcs, and Regis Philbin returns for the season premiere. Additionally, Georgia Engel (“The Mary Tyler Moore Show”) and Michael McMillian (“True Blood”) will reprise their roles – Engel as Mamie, who has a love/hate friendship with Elka (White), and McMillian as Owen, the long-lost son that Joy (Leeves) gave up for adoption.

In last season finale’s shocking cliffhanger, Melanie (Bertinelli), Victoria (Malick), Joy and Elka discovered a baby on their doorstep, with no idea as to whose it is and why they left it there. Meanwhile, Elka had just gotten together with long-time hairdresser Pierre (Regis Philbin) after discovering that he was, in fact, NOT gay, as she had long suspected. And in the season premiere, it is revealed that Pierre has an unspoken connection with the new baby.

Locklear will debut as Chloe Summerlin, a former Miss Ohio who is now the founder and owner of Cleveland’s number one public relations agency, which she runs with her ex-husband, Alec (Harrington). Melanie gets a job at the PR firm and sees sparks fly with Alec, not knowing that he’s the ex of her no-nonsense boss.
