Betty White may have a new boyfriend.

No, she's not pulliing a cougar with Jeff Bridges...

In fact, it's not even a real-life love affair. I'm talking about the romantic storyline White, 88, has coming up in her new TV Land comedy series, Hot In Cleveland.

I can exclusively reveal that White's character Elka will go on a date with comedy legend—and age-appropriate!—Carl Reiner. For all of you out there who may, sadly, not be up to speed on the 88-year-old funny man, perhaps you'll remember him from playing Saul Bloom opposite George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon in Ocean's Eleven, Ocean's Twelve and Ocean's Thirteen?

Hot in Cleveland, which premieres June 16, centers on three women (Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves and Wendie Malick) who move from L.A. to the Ohio city after finding out how more the local men like them there. White plays the snarky-tongued caretaker of the new house the trio decide to share.

Reiner isn't the only guest star we'll be seeing on Cleveland. Others include All My Children star Susan Lucci, John Schneider, Huey Lewis and Wayne Knight.
