"Old-lady texting" on 'Hot in Cleveland' (Wed., 10PM ET on TV Land) isn't a reference to Betty White. Melanie has her son Will's phone and is pretending to be him, texting back and forth with his girlfriend to get the scoop on their relationship.
But her cover is nearly blown when she gets the message: "Why are you texting like an old lady?" It's because "you shouldn't have spelled everything correctly," notes Joy.
The next problem comes when Will's girlfriend sends an offensive message in text shorthand, and Melanie has no idea what it says. It's Elka (Betty White) to the rescue.
