She may be 88 1/2 years old, but don't say Betty White doesn't know how to party. An eyewitness tells Life & Style that the former Golden Girl was getting down at the May 8 Saturday Night Live afterparty at Docks in NYC on Saturday until 3 a.m.! "She had no problem keeping up with the youngsters," the eyewitness tells Life & Style.
And it was clear that the SNL cast members loved having Betty host. "She got a standing ovation when she arrived at the party a little before 2 a.m. In 10 years of working on the show, I've never seen that before," says the eyewitness. Helping Betty celebrate were SNL cast member Andy Samberg and Matthew Broderick.
While Betty stuck to drinking water at the party, she did have one request while she was rehearsing the night before: a stiff, chilled vodka! As for any other divalike demands, Betty tells Life & Style that doing the show was work enough: "Special requests? Who could even think of that? I was just so focused on what I had to do. I had to learn how to read cue cards for tonight!"
While Betty was celebrating until the wee hours of the morning, we know she couldn't have been out all night: "She had to catch a flight at 6:30 a.m. on Sunday morning!" the eyewitness dishes.
Celebrating wasn't the only reward for Betty: the ratings for her episode of SNL were the highest in the past 18 months!
