Is Wisteria Lane about to get kissed by the golden touch of the hottest actress in Hollywood? Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry certainly hopes so.
Cherry, who used to be a writer on Golden Girls, has his fingers crossed that Betty White, 88, will join the ABC show, at least for a little while. "I adore Betty," Cherry said at the Television Critics Association panel on Tuesday. "Betty got me a seat at Saturday Night Live, so I was there when she hosted. She’s so astounding. I would love to have her do the show. She works harder than any of us. She is constantly employed. I’m trying to just see if I can get her for dinner. It’s so hard to book her!"
Cherry has fond memories of his time with all the GG ladies, and recalled reconnecting with White and the dearly-departed Rue McClanahan and Bea Arthur at a Golden Girls DVD party a few years ago.
"They all gave me a big hug. We hadn’t seen each other in about a decade and they were so happy for my success and they were just so lovely," Cherry said. "I remember thinking, ‘I have to get them on the show.’ Of course, time does what it does and now only Betty is left. If there’s any way to do it, I would love to have Betty on the show. She’s a saucy, sexy gal and she’s a blast. It’s something that would make my heart very happy."
Cherry may have to take a number to get a meeting with White, who is currently starring on TV Land's Hot in Cleveland with Valerie Bertinelli and is on everyone's wish list, but how great would it be to see the actress go head-to-head with Bree (Marcia Cross) and co.?
