Betty White’s in the middle of a career resurrgence, and as anyone who knows anything about having a career in Hollywood can tell you, she’s long past due for some sorta sex scandal. Enter nude photos of Betty White, which are reportedly being shopped around Tinseltown as we speak. White’s representation is denying that the photos are actually of the former Golden Girls star, but a set of nude photos the actress was featured in that appeared in a deck of nudie playing cards have not gone far towards making that claim believable (you can see the photo– edited, of course– over there on the right). So, what’s the deal here? The Comedy Examiner investigates below, my gentle Examiner readers…
Is it really possible that someone’s shopping around nude photos of Betty White out in Hollywood right now? Is it possible that someone would even buy ’em? You bet your sweet ass they would: Betty White’s in the middle of what may end up being the pinnacle of her career following a surprisingly entertaining commercial during the last Superbowl; a no-holds-barred, outstanding performance on the past season of Saturday Night Live; and, of course, she’s also has a brand-new sitcom– Hot in Cleveland— that’s been keeping her in the news. Right now, Betty White’s one of Hollywood’s biggest stars.
But nude photos? Really?
Oh Betty! Rumor has it that photos of Betty White and her late husband Allen Ludden, in compromising positions and various stages of undress, are being shopped around Hollywood.
The racy photos in question are said to have been found in a box in Betty’s old house. Ludden died in 1981 so they would have to be at least three decades old. If Betty had a vibrant sex life, we are positive the 89-year-old meant for any telltale pics to remain private.
Well, that’s what Bitten and Bound is saying, anyway. Of course this news has gotten back around to Betty White, and her representatives have been quick to deny that the photos even exist, saying:
This is simply not her. This has come up over the years, people claiming they have photos of Betty and Allen, and it’s simply not true. And Betty is laughing. She can’t believe people are still talking about this.”
The matter is further complicated by the fact that Betty White did, in fact, pose for a racy deck of playing cards back in the 40’s. The photo at the top of this article is from that very deck of cards (Betty White always struck me as more of the “Queen of Hearts” type, for the record), in case you hadn’t put that together yet. Over the years, White has made no secret that she’s not the innocent, little-ol’-lady that her appearance seems to suggest, and these cards– which Bitten and Bound claim the actress “deeply regret”– seem to indicate that she had precisely the sort of freewheeling, wild-and-crazy early years in Hollywood that we’ve all come to expect from our starlets.
So, what do you folks think? Are we soon going to be seeing nude photos of Betty White plastered all over the internet (perhaps put up by Perez Hilton), or do you think that this is all an elaborate hoax by someone with too much free time on their hands? Would you have any interest in such photos, and if so, what might you pay for them? OK, that sounds reasonable, where would you like to meet up to make the exchange? No, that’s a bad spot for a deal; there’s cops everywhere. How ’bout near the Arby’s? OK, done. Sound off in the comments section below, folks! We wanna know what you think about all this!
