Betty White doesn’t have many qualms about aging. In fact, she’s reveling in it.
“Best thing about being in your ’90s is you’re spoiled rotten,” the Hot in Cleveland star says on Betty White’s Second Annual 90th Birthday Special, which airs on NBC Tuesday, Feb. 5 at 8 p.m. “Everybody spoils you like mad and they treat you with such respect because you’re old. Little do they know, you haven’t changed. You haven’t changed in [the brain]. You’re just 90 every place else.”
The actress, who has recovered from catching the flu just before her birthday last month, jokes, “Now that I’m 91, as opposed to being 90, I’m much wiser. I’m much more aware and I’m much sexier.”
Blake Shelton, Bill Cosby, Whoopi Goldberg and Bill Clinton are among the names who honor America’s comedy sweetheart in the special. Also on hand to deliver birthday wishes are Cleveland costars Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves and Wendie Malick.
