Betty White Is Starring In Lifetime Christmas Movie
What will make the 2020 Christmas season a lot brighter? How about Betty White starring in a Lifetime Christmas movie? According to ET, White will star in her first Lifetime Christmas movie.

Yet, we do know that Betty will be “spreading the true meaning of Christmas.” She will be “whipping would-be Santas into shape.” Everyone around her wonders if perhaps she may be Santa’s endearing spouse.
