Hot in Cleveland is going live once again and with Betty White involved…anything can happen. The video above is evidence. The 92-year-old superstar is doing not one, but two live episodes on Wednesday, March 26 on TV Land. White will step in front of the cameras with her Hot In Cleveland costars Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie Malick and Jane Leeves, then head on over to The Soul Man with Cedric the Entertainer and Niecy Nash. But don't worry, White's been doing this for years. From Life with Elizabeth to The Golden Girls, she's one of the most, if not the most, seasoned TV pros out there.

The concept was groundbreaking, the writing transcended the sticom genre and they wore saucy jumpsuits. No other TV show has been as influential and when I'm 70, I want to be Dorothy
I consider myself to be a highly discerning soul and therefore there are only, let's see, about seven TV shows that I would keep watching even if my flat was on fire: Arrested Development, Murder She Wrote, Frasier, Cheers, Quantum Leap, Parks and Recreation, Murphy Brown. (Yes, there is an American bias in that list but, what can I say? I can't deny my roots.)
But there is only one show I would keep watching even if all of family were screaming for my help to save them from the terrible pyre; even though I have already seen every single episode at least three times and own the boxsets. It's The Golden Girls.
I love The Golden Girls so much that I don't, »

It is fitting that Hot in Cleveland airs on TV Land, the home of all those classic shows that your parents watched when they were kids (and occasionally, to make you feel old, the ones that you watched as a kid too). The show seems retro, with the old-fashioned atmosphere that automatically comes from being shot in front of a live studio audience, as so few sitcoms are nowadays. The presence of comedy legend Betty White, delivering lines with the same zing that she did back in the days of The Mary Tyler Moore Show, might also convince you that the show you are watching is from long before the twenty-first century. Indeed, the ensemble of four women of a certain age living together and kvetching about age, love, life and everything in between brings to mind another classic show starring White: The Golden Girls.

Today the legendary Betty White celebrates almost a century of living life to the fullest as she turns 92 years old. Betty has a lot of life under her belt, so she's been happy to share her no-nonsense words of wisdom and hilarious quips both on screen and off. The birthday girl never holds back, from her nude modeling days to her years on The Golden Girls to her resurgence in the last few years, and we love her all the more for it. And the funny lady never stops working! Aside from starring in Hot in Cleveland and hosting Betty White's Off Their Rockers , she had two books out in recent years - If You Ask Me (And of Course You Won't) and Betty & Friends: My Life at the Zoo. So in honor of Betty White's birthday, let's look back at her sexy moments and quotes over the years! »
