Betty White (b. 1922) is an American actress best remembered for her Emmy Award-winning roles on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and The Golden Girls. A career resurgence following a 2010 Snicker's Super Bowl ad led to a Saturday Night Live guest host gig, a regular role on TV Land's Hot in Cleveland (2010-2015) and hosting and executive producing the hidden camera series Off Their Rockers.
On May 3, 2010, White appeared on Today to promote her spot as Saturday Night Live host. Elmo was also on the show that day to promote the video The Best of Elmo 2, and during one of the promotional bumpers, Elmo appeared alongside the former Golden Girl. Elmo kissed the side of White's head, and then she turned to kiss him on the lips. This led to a little more smooching, and Today host Meredith Vieira cautioned them, "Get a room, kids; get a room!" Seeing the pair possibly gearing up for another kiss, Matt Lauer cut to the news, "before this gets out of control."
Over the course of her career, White has made numerous guest appearances on shows including That '70s Show, The Love Boat, Fame, and multiple soap operas. She has also done occasional voice-over work, including herself on The Simpsons, Grammy Norma in Dr. Seuss' The Lorax, Yoshie in the Disney dub of Ponyo, and Mrs. Claus on ABC's Prep & Landing: Operation: Secret Santa.
