BETTY! GHer and Wubber, who received the Habitat for Humanity House GH fans built!
That's right! This Saturday, Habitat for Humanity along with Daytime TV, had an awesome plan to have fans donate and bid to build with GH stars a house for someone in the LA area. 14 Stars participated with an untold number of fans. Wubber Gwaddie and her hubby bid with other fans to build with Kirsten Storms. Alberta was along for the ride and even wrote a note to the family that would be receiving the house. In a cool twist of fate, the lady that got the key (Betty) is a big GH and WUBS fan! How cool is that?! Be sure to check Fans Giving Back.org for updates and celeb photos this week.
Gwaddie wrote this about Betty:
Betty is a single mom of three children. She's the proud owner of a brand new Habitat for Humanity house. She's a GH fan. She's a Wubber. She's one of "us". Betty worked alongside the other volunteers Saturday as GH Cast and GH fans gathered to help build a house. For several hours fans and actors worked together measuring, sawing, hammering, lifting. What started as a pile of lumber and nails in the morning was by afternoon, the upper level framing of a duplex. During lunch Betty talked about what her new home meant to her. It meant that her daughter would be able have a bedroom without the pungent odor of mold. It meant that her two older children (both with Autism) would have the benefit of staying in a school district that understands their special needs. It meant that Betty could have peace of mind knowing that her children would have a home, not just a house, but a home for a long time to come.While she has only spent two nights in her new home, Betty was almost more excited to be there with the cast than when she got her new house keys. After all, she's a GH fan. She's a Wubber. She's one of "us". Welcome home Betty, welcome home.
Alberta Wubs has been involved now with the AIDS Walk LA, the Habitat House and will be attending the NYC AIDS Walk in the spring. She's also been to NLG's fan event and will be going to another event in March with Lisa LoCicero, Brandon Barash and others. That lobster gets around!! (she flies everywhere, btw, coast to coast!) Alberta has a fan page on Facebook (Alberta Wubs) and Twitter account @AlbertaWubs. It's a fun way for you to follow her adventures in the World of Daytime Events!
By the way, my ultimate goal? Getting Alberta on the set of GH somehow...maybe in a scene with Molly! Of course, my biggest wish would be to have Helena hold her but that's stretching it! :)
GH this week is a continuation of the the Niz/L&L2 thing...Franco taunting Jason, yada yada. The Keifer story has been languishing a bit, hopefully it will pick up. What do you think of Steven Lars so far? They'd better get AUDREY on, dang it. He kinda just showed up and started work! LOL. Lisa might be getting more of an edge with the recast--we'll see. Check out the spoilers and Christmas schedule on the WUBSNET.
