Betty White - Betty White Turns Down Military Ball Invite

Actress Betty White has turned down the chance to be a Marine's date at an upcoming ball, because she'll be working.
Sgt. Ray Lewis became the latest military man to invite a celebrity as a date after asking the ageing Golden Girls star to the Marine Corps Ball in November (11) in a video posted online over the weekend (16-17Jul11).
But, unlike Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake, who have accepted invites to attend separate military events, White has politely declined.
In a statement, the 89 year old writes, "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 (TV show) Hot in Cleveland."
