It Had To Be Us: Chapter One Reading
by Betty Jo Tucker

On Christmas Eve, Movie Addict Headquarters is pleased to present an audio version of Chapter One from It Had To Be Us, a romantic memoir by Harry and Elizabeth Lawrence. This chapter deals with two important Christmases for a couple who were divorced and estranged from each other for almost 20 years.  How does Christmas help bring Harry and Elizabeth back together? Listen in and find out! Then stay for a medley of love songs that follows the Chapter One presentation and features performances by Tony Babino, Alice Faye, Richard Vernon, and Lucie Arnaz.

This popular episode features lovely Lizette Amado-Bettinger and her late great husband George Bettinger reading “ remembrances” of Harry and Elizabeth in this beginning chapter of their romantic memoir. My husband  and I wrote this award-winning E-book under the pen names of Harry and Elizabeth Lawrence, and it has been adapted for the screen under the title CAKE: A Love Story. Directed and written by Misha Zubarev and Vera Ulea,  this movie won First Place in the Short Film category at the NSAEN Online Film Festival and is now available on Amazon Prime.  It stars Debra Lord Cooke, Richard Vernon, Nancy Lombardo and George Bettinger.  

The multi-talented George, who won acclaim for his uncanny impressions including Groucho Marx, George Burns and the Three Stooges, made fans worldwide with his “Mom & Pop Shop” radio show.  Lizette is a versatile actress and soprano singer with experience at the Metropolitan Opera.

It Had To Be Us won first place in the Ebook category at the Hollywood Book Festival for its potential to be transferred to other mediums such as film, radio and TV. With the help of BlogTalkRadio listeners during the launch of the Kindle version a few years ago, the memoir hit Number One in the “Divorce” category for Kindle Ebooks.  

“It Had To Be Us: Chapter One” airs on BlogTalkRadio at 4 p.m. Eastern Time on December 24, 2019. An archived segment will also be available.
