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

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.
