Cleveland warms to ‘Hot in Cleveland’ stars

CLEVELAND — The stars of “Hot in Cleveland” have gotten a warm welcome in the city where their sitcom is set.

Betty White, Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie Malick and Jane Leeves were greeted by fans and a red carpet Wednesday night in Cleveland. The actresses attended a viewing party for the new season’s premiere episode at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.

WJW-TV reports Bertinelli thanked the people of Cleveland for their support, calling them “kind, good, strong-hearted people that will survive.”

Multiple media outlets reported the women will receive a key to the city from Mayor Frank Jackson today. Bertinelli throws out the ceremonial first pitch at Friday night’s Indians game against Pittsburgh.

“Hot in Cleveland”’s new season is running this summer on the TV Land network.
