Betty White to host new NBC reality show

LOS ANGELES — The unstoppable Betty White is taking on reality TV with a hidden-camera show that turns senior citizens into merry pranksters.

NBC has ordered 12 episodes of ‘‘Betty White’s Off Their Rockers,’’ the working title for a series based on a hit Belgian program that has been produced in other European countries and South Korea.

The reality show follows seven seniors who band together to play pranks on younger people, with White helping conspire to put one over on ‘‘the unsuspecting youth of America,’’ said NBC and Universal Media Studios executive Paul Telegdy.

Billy Joel cancels his memoir

NEW YORK — The Piano Man is deciding to stay silent: Billy Joel is canceling his planned memoir.

“The Book of Joel” was scheduled for publication in June. The HarperCollins book was billed as an “emotional ride” that would detail the music legend’s failed marriage to Christie Brinkley, as well as his battles with substance abuse.

But in a statement to The Associated Press on Thursday, Joel said he had changed his mind. Joel said it took writing the book for him to realize he’s not interested in talking about the past.
