Need to scratch that ‘Hee Haw’ itch? Check out Lulu Roman’s website

Ever watch those great “Hee Haw” reruns on the RFD Channel and wonder what ever became of most of the cast?

Here’s a quick update on one of its stars, at least — the hilarious Rubenesque Lulu Roman, who was a regular from ’69 to ’71.

She’ll be appearing this morning on the syndicated TV program “The Better Show” to tell her amazing story — how, growing up as an orphan, she was regularly overlooked for adoption due to her weight.

How, post-“Hee Haw,” she went on to become a renowned Southern Gospel singer, and now — with several albums to her credit — she’s become a member of the Country Gospel Music Hall of Fame.

Roman has also lost over 200 pounds and looks just great.

She’s also aligned herself in the fight against poverty with the child advocacy organization Compassion International, with whom she visited Guatemala to witness first-hand how kids were helped.

“I saw much happiness and laughter in the children,” she says of her eye-opening trip. “And I also saw children who were quietly crying in their spirit. I know that cry.”

Additionally, Roman just reunited with the surviving cast members of “Hee Haw” for a January television special, “Salute to the Kornfield,” which is also available on DVD (www.cfrvideos.com).

She also has her own website, complete with vintage “Hee Haw” shots. Saaaa-LUTE!
