Betty White can't remember what she wore to her first Emmys, but she has a good excuse – it was 63 years ago!
"I haven't a clue," White tells PEOPLE of her first time at the ceremony in 1951. "I'm sorry. I should, but I don't have a clue."
But the Hot in Cleveland star – who is nominated this year for hosting Betty White's Off Their Rockers on Lifetime – has no trouble recalling her win for most outstanding female personality, a Los Angeles regional award she won in 1952.

July 30 is National Cheesecake Day, a holiday so decadent you may need to call in reinforcements.
Yes, it's the special day dedicated to the dessert that everyone seems to adore, including Britney Spears. And yet, perhaps the biggest cheesecake connoisseurs were our beloved '80s TV matriarchs, The Golden Girls. Dorothy, Rose, Blanche and Sophia forked through more creamy ricotta creations than almost any other group on television, ever. Plain, fruit, chocolate – there was no type of cheesecake that went overlooked by these roomies.

Who knew that some of the wealthiest women in the world were so enthralled with the adventures of four Florida retirees?
That's one of the amazing stories from Betty White's recent Reddit AMA, in which the 92-year-old television legend recalled the time the Golden Girls cast flew to London for a live performance of a Golden Girls script for the British Royal Family – all at the behest of the late Queen Mother, who was a huge fan of the show.

Betty White turns 92 Friday, and while the nonagenarian has experienced a resurgence in recent years, she's perhaps most beloved for her role as Rose Nylund on The Golden Girls.

Scarlett Johansson as Maggie the Cat is supposed to be the main sex symbol in the Broadway revival of Tennessee Williams's Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. But she's got her eye on costar Ben Walker – in particular, his butt.
"That is really one of the brighter points of my life," the actress, 28, tells Broadway.com.
Walker, 30, playing Maggie's husband Brick, spends a large chunk of the play wearing nothing but a towel, and sometimes (with his back to the crowd) not even that, giving Johansson – and the audience – an eyeful.
"I have asked Ben at times, when I was having a more difficult day, to just leave it out there for a couple more moments, just to brighten my day a little bit," she says. "I think it adds a little bit of hope in an otherwise dismal situation."

In front of fans screaming, "You're amazing," former Golden Girl Betty White unveiled her very own wax figure at Madame Tussauds Hollywood on Monday.
"The only thing that irks me is they waited until I was 90," the TV legend joked as the crowd chuckled. "A few decades ago would have been swell."
Dressed in a bright pink blazer with perfectly coiffed hair, White matched the color of her replica, which was clad in a hot pink tracksuit.

It's been 50 years since Marilyn Monroe offered a sultry musical greeting to then President John F. Kennedy on his 45th birthday. The song, "Happy Birthday, Mr. President" has become iconic – parodied and celebrated in pop culture for the past five decades ever since it was performed on May 19, 1962.
PEOPLE.com is paying homage to the cultural moment with this roundup of equally star-studded renditions – from Mike Myers in character as Wayne Campbell to Madonna's 1993 version on SNL to the stars of Smash, vying for a role in a Marilyn-themed musical, this year.
And then there's Marilyn's version, sung at a celebration for Kennedy 10 days before his actual birthday: It was followed up with a snippet of the song "Thanks for the Memory," which she amended with lyrics written specifically for Kennedy.
