  1. Working with Lucy

    I was listening to an old Stu Shostak podcast recently, an interview with Desilu exec Bernie Weitzman, and Stu said that he had heard that Desi was actually brought in during the Joan Crawford episode to essentially calm down Lucy. Sounded like Bernie wasn’t aware of that story, but the timing would make sense, as Desi probably would have been nearby working on ‘Mothers-in-Law’ at that time. But I found it to be interesting, as I’ve read that Desi knew how to handle Lucy when she would become upset about something on the ILL set (and vice versa)... but they were divorced 8 years at this point. Says a lot about their relationship if true. And I wonder what Gary thought about it.
  2. Lucie and Desi Jr. Photos

    From January 1991. Anyone see the interview or know what Lucie was promoting?
  3. Lucie and Desi Jr. Photos

    There aren’t many photos featuring all four Arnazes post-divorce. The only two I can think of:
  4. Barbara Eden mentions Lucy in this article: http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2018/09/11/dream-jeannie-star-barbara-eden-says-shes-never-thought-herself-as-sexy-actress.html
  5. The Desi Photo Thread

    Edie did NOT look like Lucy IMO... but she was a pretty lady.

    Lucie did an Instagram post dedicated to Burt the other day. I had read they dated, but didn’t realize it was for as long as a year.
  7. The Desi Photo Thread

    With Aaron Spelling: Bonus one of Desi Jr and Liza....and OJ:

    Any idea what this event was?

    Well, in the spirit of Lombard here is one of Lucy and Gable (1946) Speaking of which, I came across this quote on Instagram about Lucy and Desi, attributed to Clark Gable: “They were the perfect couple. I never saw two people so in love.” Any idea what article that quote came from?
  10. Specific "Lucy" Memories

    I remember my mom putting on “I Love Lucy” each morning when I was young. Just after I turned 5, Lucy passed away, and I remember it being my first real experience of someone I “knew” who died. Really, it was Lucy who taught me about death. That day my mother bought two angel fish for our fish tank, and we named them Lucy and Ricky. But it wasn’t until 2001, when I watched the 50th anniversary special, that I became fascinated by Lucy and Desi’s story and became a true fan.
  11. New ‘Closer’ cover featuring L&D

    I did that with this issue. Nothing new here.
  12. New ‘Closer’ cover featuring L&D

    Thanks so much for passing this along! If I were Lucie, I'd go to People to set the record straight! People magazine is usually pretty trustworthy, and if they are looking to Closer for story ideas, they should be aware that it is a rag that gets the story wrong. (Also, what a great opportunity to drum up interest/support for the Lucy/Desi biopic and/or the new book audible recordings .... just sayin'!) Regarding the article not being in print, if you scroll down all the way to the bottom of the Closer online article, you'll see that Lucy and Desi are on the cover of the print edition.
  13. New ‘Closer’ cover featuring L&D

    I get the impression that Closer's audience skews older (i.e. retired folks). That's why they feature a lot of older stars (like Betty White) and people from the "golden age" of Hollywood on the cover. Also, they wouldn't feature Lucy on their cover if it wasn't selling magazines. Seems like they do it quite a bit, so those cover stories are obviously performing well ($$$) for them.
  14. Apparently there is a new Closer cover story featuring Lucy and Desi, and quoting Lucie: https://www.closerweekly.com/posts/lucille-ball-desi-arnaz-divorce-163949 People magazine also picked up the story with a click-bait headline: https://people.com/tv/lucille-ball-desi-arnaz-divorce-horrible-says-daughter/ Seems like the articles are citing a bunch of old quotes. Probably not too much new info here.
