The Daily Shuffle: Betty White Declines Marine Corps Ball Invite

betty whiteSadly Betty White will be unable to report for duty.  Over the course of the last week Marines have taken to YouTube to personally invite celebrities such as Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake to join them at the Marine Corps Ball in November.  The video invite strategy was working pretty effectively up until now.  Sgt. Ray Lewis recently invited the lovely Ms. White to go to the ball with him, but unfortunately she had to decline the offer stating, “I am deeply flattered and truly appreciate the invitation, as everyone knows I love a man in uniform… but unfortunately I cannot accept, as I will be taping an episode of Hot In Cleveland.”  That’s too bad — Betty would have been the belle of the ball.  Now hopefully we can stop beating this dead horse and put the celeb invites to rest. – Access Hollywood

A 15-year-old boy died of injuries sustained during an car accident on Thursday involving Lamar Odom.  The L.A. Laker was in the backseat of the car when it hit a motorcycle, which then struck the unidentified boy, a pedestrian.  The teen was rushed to a hospital to be treated for major injuries to his head, but despite all medical efforts, the boy passed away on Friday.  Odom and wife Khloe Kardashian tweeted their condolences following the announcement stating, “My thoughts and prayers are with the young boys family…”  – US

The couples rumor mill has been working double time recently.  Reports are claiming that Demi Lovato and Ryan Phillippe have been secretly hooking up over the last couple months (ew).  One source is claiming that the relationship “was really hot and heavy for a while,” adding that Lovato didn’t know for sure that Phillippe was going to be a father again “until it basically happened. It kind of threw her for a loop.”  Things have supposedly cooled down a bit since the birth of his new daughter and the release of Lovato’s newest single, Skyscraper.  Lovato is 18 and Phillippe is 36.  I doubt I’m the only one hoping that these creepy rumors turn out to be false. – E Online
