BETTY WHITE was worth a reported $75 million when she died.  Also, her favorite hot dog restaurant is now selling the Betty White Naked Hot Dog, which is just the meat and the bun . . . just the way she liked them. 

The Washington Football Team is supposed to announce its new name on February 2nd.  But they may have spoiled it by accidentally taking their new website live.  Unless this “error” is just a hoax, their new name is the Washington Admirals

 CHRIS EVANS will produce and star in a movie about “Singin’ in the Rain” star GENE KELLY.  It’s based on an original idea by Chris about a 12-year-old kid who develops an imaginary friendship with Kelly while working at MGM
