Betty White Turned Down 'Dancing' Offer

Betty WhiteVeteran actress Betty White turned down the chance to appear on "Dancing With The Stars" over fears she would "embarrass the audience."
The 88 year old admits she has been approached several times by producers of the show, asking her to hit the dance floor.
Nevertheless, White is adamant she won't be donning her dancing shoes any time soon - because 83-year-old actress Cloris Leachman filled the quota for veteran stars when she appeared on the seventh season in 2008.
White tells Larry King, "I have been asked. And I've thanked them very profusely. And I said, no thank you. I think Cloris Leachman took care of that whole department. It would be fun and I would love it. But I think there comes a time when... I don't want to embarrass the audience, but Cloris did it and she did fine. So I think she's taken care of our age bracket."
