I am so excited to find out that my friend (and poet), Betsy Franco, is on TV! She has a guest stint on General Hospital. How cool is that? Now, I never watch soaps, but I had to tune in when I found out she’s now a TV star.
“So, how does one get a gig on a soap opera?” you might wonder. It helps if you’re the real-life mother of actor, James Franco. James is doing some work on GH, and he got his mom a guest spot. My friend, Gretchen, tuned me into this phenomenon. She’d seen James on The View. She called me (since she knows Betsy and I are friends), and we watched our respective televisions waiting for Betsy to appear onscreen.
As soon as I saw Betsy on my TV, I called her. She’d forgotten to tell me about this. I would have told the world! So, here’s my one and only brush with fame. Betsy, I love you! See it for yourself here. She’s the first one in this clip.
