Betty White to Make up With Bob Barker?

Thursday, December 26, 2013

Betty WhiteBETTY White is desperate to make things up with Bob Barker.

The pair haven’t spoken since they locked horns in 2009 in a dispute over an elephant at the Los Angeles Zoo. But with her 92nd birthday coming up, and Barker just turning 90, the actress wants to bury the hatchet, according to the National Enquirer.

Betty and Bob have been at the forefront of a group of celebrities that be­gan advocating for animals decades ago,” said a source.

“She believes that just because they don’t see eye to eye on every issue doesn’t mean they can’t be civil to each other.”

Betty and Bob lashed when she supported a $42 million project to expand the L.A. Zoo’s living quarters for a 25-year-old elephant, and Price Is Right host Barker tried to block the project. Betty won that battle, prompting Barker to call her his “sworn enemy.”

“Betty sent Bob a birthday gift with a note, saying she’d love to get together and talk.

“She wrote, ‘We don’t have to agree on every­thing, but we can listen to each other’s opinions. Maybe a couple of old dogs could teach each other some new tricks’.

“Bob is unflinch­ing in his position that elephants don’t belong in zoos,” said the friend. “As long as Betty remains a zoo advocate, he feels they have nothing to talk about.”
