Betty White was on hand Monday when her wax figure was unveiled at Madam Tussaud’s Wax Museum in Hollywood! The former ‘Golden Girl’ reacted saying, “It is incredible! And I cannot take it lightly. And I think they did a wonderful job. She’s just going to stay that age; I’m just going to keep getting older and older and older,” she said.”We were supposed to do it back with “The Golden Girls,” but Bea Arthur wouldn’t do it, so that scrubbed it at that time. That’s why I was thrilled to be asked to do it now.” White is 90-years-old and is the only surviving cast member of the “Golden Girls.”

Stanley Cup Finals, Watch the Game 3 Highlights here as the Los Angeles Kings are just 1 win away from their first Stanley Cup in their 45 year franchise history after they crushed the New Jersey Devils 4-0 in front of the biggest hockey crowd in L.A. History and their first ever final at Staples Center in downtown L.A.! Among those on hand, Wayne Gretzky, considered by most the greatest hockey player ever, and a member of the only Kings team to play for the Stanley Cup in 1993, that eventually lost to Montreal! Gretzky after the game told some of the media as he left Staples Center that this year’s Los Angeles Kings were probably the best team he’s ever seen! That’s what I’ve been saying since I’ve watched their playoff run, they are just playing with a confidence level rarely seen on a sport’s team. They’re relentless, poised, aggressive, and world beaters right now & should wrap up the Stanley Cup Wednesday night!

The LA Kings’ NHL playoffs road streak continued with a second overtime win in New Jersey to give them a huge step toward their first Stanley Cup. Jeff Carter scored 13 minutes into overtime to give the Kings a 2-1 win and a 2-0 series lead over the New Jersey Devils. The Kings are now 10-0 on the road in the 2012 playoffs and a phenomenal 14-2 overall. It is the first time since 1951 (Toronto Maple Leafs vs Montreal Canadiens) that the first two Stanley Cup finals games have been settled in overtime. The Kings are the twelfth team to win the first two games of the Stanley Cup finals on the road. And 9 of the previous 11 teams that got the first 2 went on to win the Stanley Cup!

Snigdha Nandipati, 14, of San Diego, California, crowned the new Scripps National Spelling Bee champion in Oxon Hill, Maryland Thursday night! Snigdha aced the word “guetapens,” a French-derived word that means an ambush or a trap, to outlast 8 other finalists and claim the trophy along with more than $40,000 in cash and prizes. Americans of Indian descent have now won the bee five times in a row and in 10 of the last 14 years, a phenomenon that began in 1999 with champion Nupur Lala, who was later featured in the documentary “Spellbound.” The week began with 278 spellers, including the youngest in the history of the competition — 6-year-old Lori Anne Madison of Lake Ridge, Va. The field was cut to 50 semifinalists after a computer test and 2 preliminary rounds, and Lori Anne was two misspelled words away from a semifinal berth. The tiny, blue-eyed prodigy said she’d be back next year.
