On the TV sitcom Hot in Cleveland, Betty White plays a sarcastic old coot who freaking loves herself a bedazzled jumpsuit. Her character's name is Elka and interestingly enough, Betty in real life freaking loves herself some elk...and some hippo, monkey, ostrich, iguana, and any other furry, scaly, or feathered creature, especially if they're living it up in the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens.
In fact, she adores animals so much that all proceeds from her new comic book biography, Female Force: Betty White, written by Patrick McCray and illustrated by Todd Tennant, will benefit the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association.
Part of Bluewater Production's Female Force collection, a series that has covered the lives of other notable women such as Ellen DeGeneres, Oprah Winfrey, and Hillary Clinton, the 32-page comic literally illustrates White's epic showbiz career from her days providing voice talent for the radio show Blondie to Mary Tyler Moore Show, Golden Girls, Super Bowl Snickers commercials, and groping Sandra Bullock in The Proposal. The comic will also touch on her lifelong activism and zeal for zebras, tigers, and hey, even hyenas.
