Aww, poor Sgt. Ray Lewis won't be attending his Marine Corps ball with a Golden Girl: Lewis, inspired by other Marines who invited certain A-listers to their upcoming galas, extended an invitation to "all-around perfect" Betty White. But while she is "deeply flattered"—and loves "a man in uniform"-—the 89-year-old actress says in a statement to Access Hollywood that she can't attend due to filming obligations.
