Betty White talks about her new book

May 9, 2011 (CHICAGO)

NEWS RELEASE - Don't miss the opportunity to join bring it-girl and seven-time Emmy winner Betty White as she offers her hilarious and profound take on life, love, celebrity and everything in between to her millions of fans with humorous stories from a seven-decade career in Hollywood from her new book, "If You Ask Me (And Of Course You Won't)," out from G. P.

Betty White's award-winning career in television and film has included iconic roles on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and "The Golden Girls." She is also widely recognized for her lifelong work for animal welfare. Now, her wit and wisdom take center stage as she tackles topics like friendship, romantic love, aging, television, fans, love for animals and the brave new world of celebrity, and draws from a lifetime of lessons learned.

"If You Ask Me" mixes Betty's thoughtful observations with humorous stories from a seven-decade career in Hollywood. Longtime fans and new fans alike will relish Betty's candid take on everything from the unglamorous reality behind red carpet affairs to her beauty regimen ("I have no idea what color my hair is and I never intend to find out") to the Facebook campaign that helped convince her to host "Saturday Night Live" despite having turned down the hosting job three times over the course of her career.

Featuring all-new material, with a focus on the past fifteen years of her life, "If You Ask Me" is funny, sweet and to the point-just like Betty.
