It's time to coin the term the "Betty White Effect." Sure, it might not be up there just yet with the kind of one-two punch that Oprah can lend to a product or program, but it seems that nothing is hotter than Betty White right now, and that means a lot of people want to capitalize by using this golden girl as their golden ticket. A source close to Betty tells me her phone has been ringing off...

Betty White may have stolen the show during this weekend's 'Saturday Night Live,' and when it came to music, Jay-Z certainly had the megawatt star power to handle things on his own. But, always the giver, Jay-Z invited Mr. Hudson -- a bit of a newcomer to the mainstream scene -- to join him on stage to belt out their duet 'Young Forever.' Considering it was the highest-rated episode of 'SNL' in 18...

If you didn't get your fill of Betty White on 'SNL' this weekend, NBC has released sketches that never made it onto the live broadcast due to time constraints. One skit the network cut was 'Debbie Downer,' which stars Rachel Dratch as everyone's favorite hypochondriac. The skit shows a group of women enjoying a lingerie party -- until Debbie shows up. Watch below and see more un-aired skits....

Betty White found herself at the center of a rip-roaring round of applause during her first appearance on screen during the cold open on 'Saturday Night Live,' marking the successful viral campaign launched by Facebook fans that ultimately led to White getting the hosting gig.
