MT. AIRY, NC (WLTX)--We have always known her as "Thelma Lou", Barney's girlfriend on The Andy Griffith Show.
Her real name is Betty Lynn and she was in 26 episodes of the show from 1961-1966.
In 2006 she moved from her home in West Hollywood to Mt. Airy, NC, the inspiration for Mayberry.
She sat down and talked with WLTX's Jennifer Belamy about the show and Andy Griffith.
