Q: What is Lulu Roman of Hee Haw fame doing today?

—Floyd Roberts, Lake Havasu, Ariz.

Roman, 65, who was born in Dallas, Texas, continues to perform stand-up comedy and Southern gospel music, mainly at Christian venues. One of her passions is serving as a spokeswoman for Compassion International, a child development organization that serves 1.2 million children in 26 countries. "I was born in a home for unwed mothers and dumped in an orphan home. I got a pretty good grip on what these kids are feeling," she says. The Hee Haw star dropped 200 pounds several years ago after lap band surgery. She plans to release At Last, an album of musical standards, this spring.
