You didn't think we meant that actress and animal advocate Betty White herself got naked, did you? It's her hot dogs that 88-year-old White likes to keep to a bare-bun minimum, which is how the "Betty `Naked' in the City' Hot Dog" came to be at the new Pink's at Universal CityWalk. White was on hand to participate in both the launch of her namesake hot dog and the new outpost of the long-time beloved hot dog-ery. Said White of her love of a plain hot dog: "The weenie is so good, I have the weenie and the bun, and so they said, `Well, it's a naked hot dog,'" reports KTLA. The CityWalk Pink's is the first Valley location of the hot dog stand.
