HOLLYWOOD, California - Every time a new article comes out spilling the beans on how much actors make on their respective series, someone gets a puss on. This time it's Betty White. After learning that the Situation earns $60,000 per episode of 'Jersey Shore,' Betty went a little coo-coo and had her people do some checking.
When she found out that Kate Gosselin's payday is about $175,000 more per episode than her (Betty's) paultry $75,000 per episode for 'Hot in Cleveland,' she went ballistic.
Sources close to the veteran actress claim that she called Kate Gosselin every name in the book, and even some made up names as she grappled with the fact that, in her own words "some no-name hack from Puke-topia, Pennsylvania who does nothing more than fill her womb full of little kiddies, makes more than me why? Because if she doesn't someone is afraid of hurting her iddy, biddy feewings? Come on, Kate is about as fun to watch as screw worms."
When Betty found out, though, that the ladies of Wisteria Lane on the hit show 'Desperate Housewives' make upwards of $400,000 apiece for each episode, she had nothing but admiration. "Those whoo-ers on that show deserve every damn dime they get. They are the epitome of acting, not like that no-name baby factory over there on Main Street, USA, who obviously got her acting creds from a box of Whiney-O's."
