"I just want to say that Betty was very excited about filming a special message to her fans for her 100th Birthday. It was important to her because she was so grateful that so many supported her throughout her entire career," she said. "The day we recorded the video and I took the photo, she was excited about being 'glammed up' (especially since COVID had basically eliminated any other opportunities. We laughed and joked and it was a great day. It was extremely important to her that her fans see her and hear from her and I'm so glad that the producers of the tribute were able to include the message."
