Betty White's two-book deal: Sex, animals and 'SNL'

betty-white-animals-gi.jpg Betty White, known for her wry wit and naughty turn of phrase, will be using her skills for the written word.

America's favorite senior citizen (sorry Cloris Leachman!) has signed a two-book deal with G.P. Putnam's Sons, the publisher announced Wednesday (Aug. 18) after winning the publishing rights in a "highly competitive auction."

"Much as I love what I do for a living in show business, I love writing even more -- so I am thrilled to be working on not only one new book but two of them," says White.
