iVillage Woman of the Week: Betty White

Each week we pick one woman who's done something to make us proud. This week we're loving Betty White for her unexpected wave of success, peaking with the announcement of her upcoming TV show.

We loved White as Rose Nylund on the '80s sitcom The Golden Girls (not to mention any sitcom she's graced with her presence), and we couldn't get enough of her as the sassy grandma in last year's The Proposal. And when it was finally confirmed last week that the 88-year-old actress would be hosting the upcoming Mothers' Day episode of Saturday Night Live, we gave the news two thumbs up.

This week's announcement that White has landed a brand-new TV show just further confirms her unstoppable comeback. The actress will costar in the TV Land series Hot in Cleveland opposite Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves and Wendie Malick. And judging by White's fervent fan base (who launched  a huge Facebook campaign just to get her on SNL), she has an ardent built-in audience.

If White is doing all this at 88, we can't wait to see what she has planned for her next act at 90!
