My name is Jeanne Basone, aka Hollywood. I have created this gofundme for Ursula Hayden, who sadly passed on Dec 3 …. This fundraiser is to help her daughter Alaska with medical bills and funeral expenses.Ursula Hayden was best known for portraying the character of Babe the Farmer’s Daughter on GLOW: Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. Her character was the youngest of three sisters, who tag-teamed often with her older sister Sally. Sadly, both Ursula and Sally died at age 56. During her time at GLOW, she toured with the company. She had various TV & promotional appearances ranging from a role on “Married…With Children” to raising money for charity on “The Family Feud.”After GLOW, she bought the trademark & help preserve its legacy by helping produce the award-winning film “GLOW: The Story of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling.” This gained the interest of “Orange is the New Black” producer Liv Flahive who then developed a fictionalized Netflix comedy-drama based on GLOW, bringing Ursula on as a series consultant. The show revitalized interest in the original brand & Ursula even made an appearance on ABC’s “The Bachelor,” teaching the contestants how to wrestle.She is survived by her daughter Alaksa and will be dearly missed.
