TV legend Betty White, who stars as Elka Ostrovsky in TV Land's "Hot in Cleveland," was born Jan. 17, 1922, in Oak Park. Her family moved to California when she was 2, but hey, we'll claim her as one of our own. White (third from left) is pictured with her "Hot in Cleveland" co-stars Jane Leeves (from left), Wendie Malick and Valerie Bertinelli. Thank you reader Mary Beth Nolan for reminding me that Betty is from the Chicago area.
