Ok, FIRST it was Marine Sgt Scott Moore asking Mila Kunis to the Marine Corp Ball...

NEXT it was a female Marine,, Corporal Kelsey De Santis, who went to YouTube to ask Justin Timberlake to the ball.

THEN Betty White was invited by Sgt. Ray Lewis...

Unfortunately for Sgt. Lewis, Betty is unable to accept his invitation due to a scheduling conflict, according to a report in the LA Times...

"I am deeply flattered and truly appreciate the invitation," White said in a statement released by her publicist. "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.'"

All is NOT lost for Sgt. Lewis though. It seems that just as one door closes, another door opens. Apparently there are other celebrities itching at the chance to attend the Marine Corp Ball with Sgt. Lewis. You may remember Linda Hamilton from her roles in the movies Terminator, Terminator 2: Judgement Day, and most recently the TV Series, Chuck.

Linda is VERY interested in attending the Marine Corp Ball with Sgt. Lewis. Check out how she all but begs him to take her. She's even sporting the aviator sunglasses...
