No, seriously: The octogenarian "Golden Girl" likes her hot dogs plain, which is why the new Pink's Hot Dogs opening in Universal CityWalk next week will be one served without toppings and named in her honor. Betty White will appear on Monday at 10 a.m. for the special hot dog dedication and the location's grand opening, according to a news release. It will be called the "Betty 'Naked in the City' Hot Dog" and a portion of its sales "will go to support the Los Angeles Department of Animal Services' animal shelters," explains cbs2. White will serve as host of Saturday Night Live on May 8.
