With her hosting gig less than two weeks away, Betty White is using her first Saturday Night Live promo to answer a question she thinks is on people's minds: Is the Golden Girl also a cougar?

White, 88, landed the hosting job after a fervent fan campaign on the Internet. But the Web is also full of idle gossip, she says – so she's putting to rest rumors about her love life.

When White hosts the show May 8, it will be her first time in Studio 8H. "I can't think of a better way to spend Mother's Day weekend than with Betty White," executive producer Lorne Michaels wrote on the SNL blog.
