Betty White Will Not Be Attending the Marine Corps Ball

Betty White has declined an invitation from Marine Sergeant Ray Lewis to attend the increasingly celebrity-packed Marine Corps Ball. “I am deeply flattered and truly appreciate the invitation, as everyone knows I love a man in uniform," she wrote in a statement. "But unfortunately I cannot accept, as I will be taping an episode of Hot In Cleveland. Love, Betty White.” Well played, as always. Sure, it would have been fun to see White dancing with Mila Kunis. But, you know, she's otherwise engaged. [MSNBC]
