And you thought hearing Betty White talk about her "muffin" on SNL was the height of scandal: According to the venerable bastion of reliable reporting The National Enquirer, a "feisty" Betty White let fly some colorful language and hand gestures recently outside a grocery store parking lot.

The alleged "road rage" incident took place outside the Bristol Farms on the corner of Sunset and Fairfax, and found the 90-year-old television darling nearly smashing into a car pulling into the lot behind her. "Betty literally came barreling out of her spot - and missed hitting the car behind her by inches,” says the Enquirer's "source."

So did White say sorry? Not according to this report, which found her "cursing like a sailor - dropping enough 'F-bombs' to start World War III!” Oh, but that's not all: Before White took off she "threw the double-finger" at the other driver and screamed: "CRAZY BITCH!...Look where you’re going next time!"

If this story is indeed true, sounds like White's plenty salty for a 90-year-old.
