Betty White celebrates 94th birthday week with James Corden
The former "Golden Girl" won a lifetime Emmy and joined Instagram in 2015
White got a flash mob greeting for her 93rd birthday
Everyone’s favorite nonagenarian, Betty White, got the surprise of a lifetime for her 93rd birthday – a hula-dancing flash mob!
The actress, who played the lovably clueless Rose on “The Golden Girls,” responded with glee Friday when folks on the set of her sitcom, “Hot in Cleveland,” greeted her with a choreographed dance number and a banner reading “Happy Birthday Betty.”
She tucked herself between dashing zookeeper and television personality Jack Hanna and New York Knicks forward Amar’e Stoudemire, according to her Twitter account. (She joined Twitter in 2012 and has 1.26 million followers.)
On her actual birthday, she hung out with the @NFLonFox crowd. “Nothing like spending your birthday with a friend or 8 if they’re good looking!” she tweeted.
Could her 90s get any better?
White was recognized by the Guinness World Records in December 2013 for the longest TV career for a female entertainer.
For her 93rd birthday in 2015, the cast and crew on the set of her now-canceled sitcom “Hot in Cleveland” greeted her with a choreographed hula dance number and a banner reading “Happy Birthday Betty.” And it was all caught on video.
The pair is greeted by a woman in Hawaiian regalia performing a hula-style dance. Suddenly she’s joined by dozens of others wearing Hawaiian shirts, grass skirts and leis – dancing in unison to a techno song.
She made out with “American Sniper” star Bradley Cooper in a “Saturday Night Live” skit celebrating the show’s 40th anniversary in February 2015. She was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 42nd annual Daytime Emmy Awards in April 2015. And she joined Instagram in June 2015 and already has 296,000 followers.
White has no plans to stop working. “Retirement is not in my vocabulary,” she’s been quoted as saying.
