    Actress Betty White introduces the tribute to Guiding Light. The soap opera is currently in its 72nd and final season and is scheduled to air its last episode on Sept. 18.

    Actress Betty White plans to get her buns naked at the new Pink's hot dog stand in Universal Monday.

    Don't worry though, no disrobing or wardrobe malfunctions are planned.

    White will appear at the venerable hot dog stand on La Brea Avenue to have a special version of wiener dedicated in her honor: the "Betty 'Naked in the City' Hot Dog," which she said has no toppings and no enhancements.

    White will get the hot dog named after her as part of a publicity campaign for the new Pink's outlet at Universal CityWalk, and hyping her appearance on the May 8 "Saturday Night Live" show on NBC.

    A portion of profits from the sale of "Betty `Naked in the City' Hot Dogs" will go to support the Los Angeles Department of Animal Services' animal shelters.

    Pink's goes back 70 years in Hollywood, and the 88-year-old actress's career stretches back 60 years, a publicist noted. She has played saucy characters in "Mary Tyler Moore Show," "The Golden Girls" and "The Proposal."
