WATCH: Betty White Makes the Tough Fashion Calls

09/17/2010 at 10:00 AM ET

Betty White is now adding a new title to her name: Fashion drill sergeant. With the launch of “The Betty White” limited-edition collection for Jerry Leigh Apparel, a line of hoodies and T-shirts—priced from $48—comes a promotional behind-the-scenes video featuring our favorite Golden Girl hard at work in the business of fashion, and being anything but polite. Watch as a tracksuit-clad Betty rolls up in a sports car and gives her manufacturing team a lesson in hardball management. “If I ask you to sew, you say how fast? And if I ask you to iron, you say how hard,” she quips. But at the end of the day, Betty just wants to spread the love. “When you buy a Betty White product, you get so much more than just fabric and thread, you really get a little part of my heart,” she says. Watch this not-to-miss video or visit to make Betty White a staple brand name in your closet — and help support the Morris Animal Foundation, which receives a portion of the proceeds from the line’s sales. –Jessie Goldberg

Goes to show that a class act comes in every age. She is an inspriation to seniors and to the youth of today. Awesomeness is personality and character, not age!

Betty White is a blast! Hope she lives to be 120! You know we humans are able to live to that age right now with proper nutrition, exercise, and health care! The trouble is, nobody takes care of themselves the way they should…but maybe Betty does, I sure hope so! Her video was hilareous (sp) funny, anyway!

I’m so glad that she’s so mentally alert. I know that she doesn’t need our pity and that the joke is probably on us, but she’s acting great for a 88 year old. We take it for granted these days, but 88 is still a feat. I know my 90 year old grandma unfortunately isn’t quite as sharp as she used to be.

I respect Betty White so much, and love everything she does. I’m buying a hoodiebuddie for sure! I love that they have headphones built into their drawstrings. Keep it coming Betty!

Betty White, a national treasure. The world is a better place with her presence. Would love to see Ms White as a guest judge on Project Runway. She always make us smile.
