Betty White Declines Marine Corps Ball Invite
Betty White is the latest star to be asked to the Marine Corps Ball via YouTube video.
Sgt. Ray Lewis followed suit from fellow marines to invite her dream date, comedienne Betty White. In the video, Lewis describes White as “funny… sweet… mature… all around perfect woman.” Despite the flattery, it sadly got him nowhere.
Unfortunately, White won’t be able to attend the Marine Corps ball unlike Mila Kunis, who after being egged on and some schedule adjustment, said yes to Sgt. Scott Moore’s invitation. Her fellow Friends with Benefits star Justin Timberlake has likewise agreed to be Marine Kelsey de Santis’ date to the Washington D.C. gala.
Sgt. Lewis was looking forward to a fun night. In the video, he says, “We’d have a good time. I’m fun… I think I could make her laugh, I think she could make me laugh… It’s gonna be a good time.”
In a statement, White says, “I am deeply flattered and truly appreciate the invitation, as everyone knows I love a man in uniform… but unfortunately I cannot accept, as I will be taping an episode of Hot In Cleveland. Love, Betty White.”
Sgt. Ray Lewis’ video, which was the longest among the three invites, is more than 2 minutes long. The video of the other two marines were barely a minute.Get free updates directly to your e-mail from Showbiz Renegade.
