Betty White and Jimmy Fallon have beer pong rematch
Betty White can still play a mean game of beer pong.
Even though she claimed to be "panic stricken" about hosting "Saturday Night Live" for the first time this weekend, she managed to hold her own against admitted ringer Jimmy Fallon during a beer pong rematch on "Late Night" Thursday night. She even flashed him as a distraction, but Fallon edged ahead. White and Fallon last went head-to-head in the bar game in June.
White, in New York a few days early for "SNL" rehearsals, quoted Jay-Z's "99 Problems" lyrics and claimed she's turned into a total diva because of all the attention that's been swirling around her for the last eight months. She still hasn't met David Mathews, the Texan who started the Facebook campaign to land her on "SNL," but if she ever does, "I'd like to kill him," she told Fallon.
Did she mean that?
Nah, she'll probably tear down the house on Saturday, when she appears on the late-night show with the likes of Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Ana Gasteyer and other female "SNL" vets. She said she's looking forward to working with that cast and to being "manhandled" by the "SNL" wardrobe and makeup folks. "It's been a long, long time since I've been manhandled," she said as Fallon nearly hyperventilated from laughter.
"SNL" ratings will probably be through the roof. You go, Betty.
