Betty White on the half shell

December 10, 2010 | 12:06 pm

Five-time Emmy champ Betty White poses as Botticelli's Venus while appearing with her "Hot in Cleveland" costars on the cover of an upcoming issue of Emmy Magazine, published by the Academy of TV Arts & Sciences.

Inside the issue, White confesses how she got involved with the TV Land show: "We did the pilot, and three weeks later it got picked up for 10 shows. I never saw a quicker turnaround in my life. They asked if I would do some more, and I explained that wasn't our deal. They kept going, 'What if you only had to work three days…?' What if this? What if that? They made so many concessions that I was embarrassed to keep saying no."
