LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Betty White is game for almost anything that gets a laugh – except nudity and jokes about weed.

After a public plea from fans, White is hosting Saturday Night Live May 8 on NBC and says she’s up for “trying anything” on the show.

However, she draws the line at “dope jokes” because she doesn’t find marijuana funny and also refuses to flash skin on SNL.

White deadpans, “They promised me I wouldn’t have to do any nudity.”

Although she’s excited for the big gig, she’s also “scared to death” about hosting.

White is most nervous about being able to read the cue cards without her eyeglasses and keeping the audience laughing.

Although she’s experienced in live TV, White admits “life’s darkest moment” happened to her during a live performance on Jack Paar’s show.

She was singing and suddenly forgot the lyrics, so she had to make up the words in the midst of “sheer panic.”
