  1. Like most of Amazon’s films, this would likely get a theatrical release and qualify for Oscars.
  2. Great statement from Lucie. https://www.instagram.com/tv/CKK7JLgl1Mt/?igshid=11rdhyp5021fq She does now have me wanting to see a sequel with Carole Cook in the lead, though.
  3. The Kennedy Center Honors seems to be back on track after the past few years. They are finally honoring Dick Van Dyke! There is no one more deserving. Other honorees include Debbie Allen, Joan Baez, Garth Brooks, and violinst Midori. The honors will be held over a week in May and air June 6 on CBS. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/13/arts/kennedy-center-honors-pandemic.html
  4. Nicole Kidman and Javier Bardem are in negotiations for the film, now called Being the Ricardos. Aaron Sorkin will direct. https://deadline.com/2021/01/aaron-sorkin-nicole-kidman-javier-bardem-lucille-ball-desi-ricardo-being-the-ricardos-1234651297/
  5. From the looks of things, I’m pretty sure there was no one in the studio audience under the age of 70.
  6. Amazon Prime has added The Jim Nabors Show, Nabors’ 1978 talk show, to their watch instantly choices. Lucie guests in one episode. Lots of other fun people appear as guests on the series as well.
  7. I wasn’t expecting this Reelz follow up documentary: Lucille Ball: Life, Death & Money Premieres Monday, January 25 at 10pm ET/ 7pm PT. Legendary star Lucille Ball is known as one of the greatest comedians of all time. On the air for six seasons she cemented her iconic status in I Love Lucy where she and first husband Desi Arnaz pulled in astronomical ratings. It's also here that Ball forged her way to becoming a leading lady off screen as executive producer later launching mega movie and TV franchises including Star Trek and Mission Impossible. When she passes away in 1989 her sizable estate of $40 million is split among her two children and second husband Gary Morton. Unlike many celebrities Ball left behind a will and testament but even with one so clearly written her estate becomes entangled and bitter. After her death Morton remarries pro golfer Susie McAllister. He then suddenly passes away leaving behind a number of Ball's highly personal and sentimental items to Susie. Knowing their value Susie decides to put these items up for auction looking to fetch hefty amounts. This is when a full out estate war erupts between her and Ball's children. Together the Arnaz siblings fight to get back the precious items including jewelry, lifetime achievement awards and love letters. But would mismanagement see these priceless items be lost forever? Lucille Ball: Life, Death & Money is produced by Buck Productions.
  8. Yes, it's likely Viv had another facelift before that episode. She was on Virginia Graham's Girl Talk show around that time talking about it. Both Vivian and Mary Jane were remarkably open about cosmetic surgery for the time period. That combined with the black eyeshadow she wore in the episode and a different shade of hair color gave her a slightly different look.
  9. The marvelous talented Ann Reinking as died at 71. Here she is on Merv Griffin with Lucie.
  10. A new People magazine article about Vivian’s final days. https://people.com/tv/the-day-lucille-ball-said-goodbye-to-costar-vivian-vance/
  11. Ruta Lee remembers Alex Trebek. https://www.latimes.com/entertainment-arts/tv/story/2020-11-09/alex-trebek-jeopardy-dead-ruta-lee-high-rollers From this interview we can deduce that Lucy’s appearance on High Rollers was taped the same day as Lucy’s December 1975 Tonight Show appearance (same outfit).
  12. “American Songbook Association” interview.
  13. I certainly hope Lucy saw this review from The Chicago Defender!
  14. I don’t recall any other breaking news. In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, they mainly took questions about what Desi would think about certain current events and what advice he would give. I hope they continue to do these videos. Next time they should make it so they can continue to be viewed afterwards. They made it seem like they were looking for another actress to play Lucy and planning to proceed with the project.
  15. Lucie and Kate did a great Instagram Live today and mentioned that, with all the production delays, Cate is no longer attached to the picture.
  16. Hopefully this link works: The I Love Lucy Cookbook: Classic Recipes Inspired by the Iconic TV Show https://www.amazon.com/dp/0762471808/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_fab_GWsFFb2CCZFBP
  17. A new I Love Lucy cookbook will be released in January. The I Love Lucy Cookbook: Classic Recipes Inspired by the Iconic TV Show https://www.amazon.com/dp/0762471808/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_fab_SWYCFb7Z3ETDH
  18. Lucie joins Billy Stritch’s tribute to Mel Torme to talk about Main Street USA, Ginger Rogers, Liza Minnelli, and more! Starts at 37:00.
  19. Good question. I think the first time the baby’s name was mentioned was in the flashback opening of The Audition rerun.
