Betty White Betrayed By Friend, Sued For 'Underpayment, Extreme
Betty White has reportedly been betrayed by a longtime friend who has filed a lawsuit against her. According to The Hollywood Reporter, White had hired Anita Maynard to be a sort of personal assistant to her. Maynard actually lived with White and has been by her side for over 20 years. Now, however, Maynard claims that she was over-worked and under-paid.

"Maynard says she worked in excess of 14 hours a day, six days a week and was not paid overtime. She also says she didn't get uninterrupted meal breaks, wasn't given timely accurate wage statements and wasn't paid all of her wages and va...

'Golden Girls' Star's Death Goes Viral... Five Years Later?

Rue McClanahan
Rue McClanahan's death at the age of 76 has just gone viral. Which is a little peculiar… considering McClanahan passed away in 2010.

According to CBS News, social media has been pouring its heart out for the former "Golden Girls" actress all week, despite the fact that she's been dead for several years. However, CBS also did a little snooping around, and seemed to figure out what was causing this bizarre viral sensation.

It seems a "Golden Girls" fan shared an obituary of McClanahan from when she first passed away. Users on Twitter and Facebook didn't bother to look at the finer details- ...

Betty White Tells Oprah Her Biggest Regret: Not Marrying Her Hus
Betty White, 93, sat down with Oprah Winfrey for an episode of "Where Are They Now?" and talked about her one big regret in life -- not marrying the love of her life a little sooner.

White married Allen Ludden in 1963. He died in 1981 from stomach cancer.

"Any big regrets?" Winfrey asked.

"That I spent a whole year, wasted a whole year, that Allen and I could have had together, saying no, I wouldn’t marry him. No, I won’t. No, I won’t leave California. No, I won’t move to New York. I wasted a whole year we could have had together. But we made it. We finally did," White explained.

The Best Superbowl Ads From The Past 14 Years

Career Builder Koala Punch
Ah, Super Bowl ads: the event within the event. It's the reason why non-sports fans take bathroom breaks during the game instead of the commercial breaks. Over the last ten years we've enjoyed ads that run the gamut from hilarious, to poignant, and to controversial. Here are the best Super Bowl Commercials Since 2000. In the interest of time, we'll be looking at one commercial per year.

EDS, Cat Herders, 2000

One of those commercials that's so good, you forget what it was advertising. Don't worry about EDS, though - they got bought by HP.

Betty White pokes fun at Miley Cyrus's "Wrecking Ball" music video in a new ad for the forthcoming second season of her Lifetime series, "Betty White's Off Their Rockers".

Thankfully, the 91-year-old funny lady opted for the clothes-on version, swinging through a concrete room in a white pantsuit.

But the wrecking ball isn't enough as the legendary comedienne calls for a sledgehammer and a giant foam finger.

"I got some ideas from some recent pop culture events that really got the kids talking," she says.

Earlier this month, pro wrestler Hulk Hogan parodied the video by riding the title...

Betty White Likes Her 'Wonderful' Wax Figure

Betty White
Madame Tussauds in Hollywood unveiled a wax figure of Betty White yesterday. The sculpture captures the venerable actress' likeness rather well, although we think the artist made the nose just a tad too big. What do you think?

Fake Betty wore a hot pink pantsuit with sneakers, and real Betty wore a matching cardigan with black pants.

At one point Betty hugged her figure, and she replicated the pose of her wax twin. The sculpture is reportedly valued at $300,000. Betty, 90, told, "I think they did a wonderful job."

The actress enjoyed a resurgence in her career in 2010 after st...

Mick Jagger To Become 6th Oldest 'Saturday Night Live' Host

Mick Jagger
There's sure to be some good jokes when Mick Jagger hosts the season finale of Saturday Night Live May 19, but one of the biggest laughs could come from the fact that the cast members sharing the stage with the singer weren't alive when the Rolling Stones were formed.

Jagger, 68, is set to become the 6th oldest host on the show, following Betty White (88 when she hosted), Miskel Spillman (80), Ruth Gordon (80), Milton Berle (70), and Charlton Heston (70). Amusingly, Spillman was the winner of the first and only "Anyone Can Host" contest in 1977 - he was paid $3,000 for his hosting duties.
