While she didn't say how she'll be appearing and whether or not she'll host, the news comes after she received a groundswell of support from facebook.com users who lobbied for the 88-year-old comic actress to host the popular show.

While attending Elton John's Oscar viewing party Sunday, People magazine asked if she was doing SNL. "Yes," she replied. "I don't know why or how." Betty said she didn't quite understand the clamor to get her to host but said, "it's been wonderful."

It seems that at 88 years old, Betty White has never been more popular. The former Golden Girls star was recently honored with a lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes. She just starred in one of the most popular (and funny) commercials on the Super Bowl. And she's arguably the best thing about summer rom-com The Proposal.

Saturday Night Live would be the icing on the cake.
