Betty Newbie (née Simovitch) is a Sim first introduced during the player tutorial in The Sims. After the completion of the tutorial, she (along with Bob Newbie) can be played like other Sims. Due to the chronology of events in The Sims series, she appears as a teenager named Betty Simovitch in The Sims 3, residing in Riverview. Aside from these major titles, Betty appears in several console titles, and appears (as a deceased Sim) in the family tree of several Sims in The Sims 2.
Life leading up to The Sims 3Edit
Betty lives in Riverview, with her mother and father Fatima and Vadim Simovitch. She wants to find the love of her life. She wears a light pink dress and has auburn hair. She is very talented with the guitar, as two of her traits are Artistic and Virtuoso. She is level 6 in the guitar skill and she is best friends with Bob, her future husband. Her mother dreams of Betty becoming a musician, and hopes she will follow that path. Betty enjoys music, but doesn't want to make it into a career like her mother envisions. At the start of the game, Betty is 13 days from becoming a young adult.
Even though the chronology of past games allude to the fact that Betty is destined to marry Bob, story progression will sometimes place her in relationships with other men. However, she can easily be directed to start a romance with Bob due to their high friendship level.

Life leading up to The Sims (console)Edit
Betty Newbie appears in The Sims for console living with her spouse in 7 Sim Avenue wearing a blue cap, blue glasses, blue top, blue pants and red shoes. They both share a 20+ relationship so it is unknown if they are really married. Neither one has a job, but it may be best to put them in the Military career track, since they are both very active. She likes to read, play in the fountain, watch TV, and look at flamingos. She appears as Betty Roomies in the Get a Life Storyline as one of the Sims the player can move in with after level 3, with interests in Travel and Music. She can also be seen at the ending movie, wanting to give the player a high-five.
Life leading up to The SimsEdit
Betty Newbie appears a bit later when playing the Newbie Family tutorial. Betty is considered the helpful house wife from 1950s suburbia. The Newbie home (7 Sim Lane) also has a 1950s suburbia theme, making it a custom rendered tutorial. She is not in love with Bob, but players who play the Newbie family beyond the tutorial can handle their relationship as they please (although every adult Sim couple is considered spouses in The Sims). She is characterized by her medium-long dark brown hair, a purple shirt with green capris, her jewelry and her large frame. According to SimEnhancer, Betty Newbie was the second Sim created in Neighborhood 1.
Life leading up to The Sims 2Edit
By the time the storyline has caught to The Sims 2, she and her husband Bob are already deceased. Through her daughter, Brandi, Betty has two grandsons; Dustin Broke and Beau Broke, with a third on the way. Brandi was widowed by her husband, Skip before the storyline of The Sims 2 began. She has similar clothes and hairstyle to Coral Oldie. Betty died shortly before the birth of her first grandson Dustin. Her husband died earlier; both died while Brandi was pregnant. When her character file is viewed in SimPE, her hair genes are for black hair, which implies that she may have dyed it in The Sims 3. By looking at the family pictures it can be seen that Betty had lost weight. According to her age data in SimPE, Betty had 15 days left in the elder life stage when she died.
Life leading up to The Sims 2 (console)Edit
Betty lives here with her roommate, Bob. However, they are very different from the usual light-skinned Bob Newbie and Betty Newbie. Whether they are canonical in their appearance, as both Bob and Betty are deceased by the time of The Sims 2, or are entirely different people, is unknown.
