Betty White Turns 89, Drinks Vodka On Live TV (VIDEO)

Betty White turned 89 on Tuesday and showed on Wednesday that she still knows how to party.

The legendary actress and comedienne appeared on the 'Late Show with David Letterman' on Wednesday, and when asked her hobbies, she gave a two-part answer: playing with animals and drinking vodka.

Letterman was prepared for the latter. He pulled out a bottle of vodka and poured White and himself a glass, the two drinking up on national television.

Guess White's promise to "go away for a while" isn't going down quite yet.
