Oak Park ,Ill native actress Betty White will be turning 90 years old on Jan 17 and NBC is airing a 90-minute birthday celebration Jan. 16 (8 ET/PT) and will follow it with a sneak preview of Betty White's Off Their Rockers, a new hidden-camera show that will return with 12 more half-hour episodes this spring. In the vein of countless other series from Candid Camera to Punk'd, Rockers will prank unsuspecting victims with (mostly) harmless stunts. The wrinkle: White has enlisted a troupe of seniors to do the pranking.
In related news, she starred in the holiday-themed opening sketch for the Monday Night Football season finale last month.
White has become the female George Burns of entertainment.
"I was just discussing becoming the creative director for the Jetson movie and someone on the call yelled out.. you should do a Jetsons tour!" he Tweeted.

The feud between Common and Drake began after the former reportedly mocked the latter in a song called "Sweet". The alleged diss was, "Y'all n***as man, y'all soft motherf**kers/ Singing all around me man, la la la/ You ain't motherf**king Frank Sinatra."
In related Common newz, in a recent interview with the NY Post, Maya Angelou expressed that she was uncomfortable with Common’s use of the N-Word on his single “The Dreamer,” which she’s featured on, but the poet cleared up the issue on TV last month when she phoned into "106 & Park" during Common’s appearance on the show, to clarify that the issue had not caused a rift between her and the Chicago rapper. Angelou, penned and recited an original poem for Common’s new album The Dreamer/The Believer
We are willing to assume Dr Angelou gave Common a good motherly tongue lashing in private for sure!LOL. And the Common/Drake beef is like cotton vs. a pillow. LOL
Chicago native singer/actress Jennifer Hudson was on the Today Show and Tom Joyner Morning Show Monday to talk about her book, “I Got This: How I Changed My Ways and Lost What Weighed Me Down.” She also sat down with Lester Holt of NBC's Dateline for a revealing interview, that aired last Sunday. During the interview
In unrelated J Hud newz, she’s on the cover of Good Housekeeping's February issue and she debuted her new Weight Watchers commercial last month of her singing with her former plus size body.
And in more J Hud newz, she is set to testify against her former brother-in-law, William Balfour, next month, over the alleged murders of her mother, brother and nephew. Chicago prosecutors want her to give evidence about domestic violence involving the estranged husband of her sister, Julia.

” “WOW in studio wit the legend dairy @drdre,” tweeted the rapper. As you can imagine the word “legend dairy” had plenty of Twitter fans criticizing the rapper, which Nelly responded with, ” That’s how I wanted it dahhhhhh!!Wow is folks really that simple to trip off how folks spell shit on twitter its twitter not a turn paper!!”
In unrelated Nelly newz, TMZ reported that Nelly totaled $20,403.64 for an American Express credit card bill. American Express claims the rhymer hasn't paid up on the monies owed to the company, even after being sent a notice about the amount.. The suit demanded that the 'Country Grammar' star, born Cornell Haynes, Jr., pay back the more than $20,000 and an additional $3,000 in lawyer's fees, which have yet to be paid. A court hearing Nelly must attend was set for Monday
We didnt hear how the case went but we assume Nelly agreed to pay up.
STL A&E NEWZ BITZ
THE BIG STL STORY IS:
The St. Louis Cardinals were invited to the White House but the talk is whether former manager Tony LaRussa and slugger Albert Pujols will be attending. La Russa, who is reportedly scheduled to attend the Warm-Up in addition to hosting events in town this Friday and Saturday, may have a scheduling conflict due to a family matter. A representative for Icon Sports said first baseman Albert Pujols does not plan to make the trip. (Pujols also was not among the traveling party that visited George Bush in 2007.)We think both LaRussa and Pujols should attend because they did play a part in the success of the team winning the World Series.
The St. Louis Rams organization is supposed to announce today, Thursday, regarding hiring Jeff Fisher as the new Rams coach replacing for Steve Spagnuolo who was fired earlier this month.. A source close to Jeff Fisher insisted the delay in choosing between head coaching jobs with the Miami Dolphins and St. Louis Rams is not a leverage play and that neither side has yet to make an offer. Fisher is making sure he has an ideal situation to step into before agreeing to coach one of the teams, the source said. Fisher visited the Rams organization on Monday. The Rams also interviewed
On the general manager front, the Rams interviewed
On The JC Corcoran’s radio show on KTRS today, Thursday, he speculated that the Fisher decision may be delayed because of concerns with Rams owner Stan Kroenke’s decision on whether the Rams will stay in St Louis after its lease with its football home, the Edward Jones Dome is up in 2015.

STL promoter Robert Kirk was named a person of interest when the FBI questioned him in the Dec 26 disappearance of an ATL native Stacey English. Kirk reportedly was the last person to see her alive after a supposed argument they had and her kicking him out of her apartment. Kirk hired celebrity attorney Scott Rosemblum as the FBI continues to investigate. Meanwhile the FBI is also looking into the disappearance of STL native woman who vanished eight days earlier to see if there is any pattern in both women’s cases.
UPDATE: From a reliable source, as of today, English has been found dead and that the FBI has Kirk was back in custody.
2nd UPDATE: As of 9:02p.m. CST THURSDAY--Another source contacted OUTTOWN and said that the info given to us is incorrect. English has not been found and Kirk has not been in custody with the FBI.
Earlier reports that Atlanta police or FBI agents were coming to St. Louis to interview Kirk proved to be incorrect. "We have not been contacted to that extent at this point," said attorney Rosenblum, adding Kirk has spoken extensively to Atlanta police on a "number of occasions."
We will keep you updated.
