“I’m So Sick Of Betty White!”

That’s what fellow octogenarian Cloris Leachman said while promoting her new fall series “Raising Hope” at the Televisions Critics Association gathering in Los Angeles. (Based on the trailer above, the series looks promising.) Leachman had been asked to comment on this year’s effusive adulation for the Golden Girl. “I’m so sick of Betty White,” Leachman snapped, to laughs and a few gasps. “Never liked her.” Leachman was kidding, or at least I think she was kidding. But beneath her acidic humor lurked a bit of envy, I suspect.
