“She’s funny, she’s sweet, she’s mature. She’s the all-around perfect woman,” Ray said of the 89-year-old actress. “I really think we’d have a good time. I’m fun, you know. … I think I can make her laugh. I think she can make me laugh. I think we can laugh together. So, call me!”

Sadly, Betty won't be able to be Ray's date to the ball.

“I am deeply flattered and truly appreciate the invitation, as everyone knows I love a man in uniform… but unfortunately I cannot accept, as I will be taping an episode of ‘Hot In Cleveland,' ” Betty said in a statement to Access Hollywood.
