  1. The Paley Center has posted their 2006 Golden Girls panel discussion with Betty and Rue and the creative team. It’s very fun!
  2. There is a clip of Ann’s opening number from a bootleg on YouTube. It’s poor quality with audio dropouts, but it gives you a taste of Ann in the show.
  3. Carol Channing and Robert Morse did the first national tour after Ann and Mickey opened on Broadway. It didn’t last long. The second tour starred Ann and Mickey and did big business. I don’t think there was ever a period where Ann and Mickey both left the show. One would take a break (like when Ann went to do her Love Boat episodes) and the other would carry on with a temporary replacement. Fill-ins for Ann included Helen Gallagher and Carol Lawrence. Rip Taylor and Joey Bishop were among Mickey’s replacements. There was a reading a few years ago for a possible Broadway revival starring Tony winners Beth Level and Michael McGrath. Two talented individuals, but not big names. It never went any farther than a reading. I could see Martin Short doing well in this. The Lincoln Center Library did record the show with Ann and Mickey and it’s in their archives. I watched it there and it was great fun!
  4. Desi II, Ebba Sedgwick, Desi III, Lolita, Cleo, and DeDe in back
  5. It was from a 1984 Cosmopolitan issue with the headline "The Celebrity Who Turns Me On." They meant talent-wise. Lucy answered Carol Burnett.
  6. I had no idea about the friendship between Lucy and Patti LuPone's mother.
  7. Here’s Lucy is a viral sensation! More than a million people have watched this video!
  8. I was thinking the other day that it was surprising that Lucy's close friend Ross Martin never appeared in a Lucy episode (he did direct one). I just came across the original script to the second season "Lucy and Carol Burnett" and the beauty contest judge was supposed to be Don Ameche. He was then crossed out and Ross Martin's name was penciled in. I wonder what prevented both of them from doing this and caused Robert Alda to step in. It would have been interesting to have Don Ameche on the show.
  9. Ann was a great vehicle in My Mother, the Car. Nick at Nite had great promos. I loved that before most of their shows that would name the episode title, the episode number, and a fun fact or moment relating to the episode.
  10. Oscar nominee Shirley Knight has passed away at the age of 83. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/shirley-knight-dead-sweet-bird-youth-dark-at-top-stairs-dutchman-actress-was-83-1133636
  11. Tom Lester, Green Acres’ Eb, has died at the age of 81. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/tom-lester-dead-wide-eyed-farmhand-eb-dawson-green-acres-was-81-1290946
  12. Very talented man. We both attended the same high school (not at the same time!). I saw him on Broadway in Love Letters opposite Carol Burnett and talked to him after the show. I mentioned our high school and he sang the school’s entire fight song! I didn’t know we had one. 😂 Brian Dennehy also makes me think of this amazing story from Quinn Cummings. https://twitter.com/quinncy/status/1060303097178673152?s=21
  13. Desi Jr. article: https://www.closerweekly.com/posts/lucille-balls-son-desi-jr-life-following-addiction-heartbreak/
  14. Lucie has been spending her recent free time doing some interviews from home. News interview about her mask project: Theatre Conversations: "Making Brews and Paying Dues" With former flame Bill Boggs:
  15. Interview with Lucie to promote the show. I think this guy is a good interviewer.
  16. It was great to see Viv on Red Skelton! I’ve always wanted to see her appearances on the show. I hope the others pop up.
  17. I watched Lucy Meets Orson Welles last night and it never occurred to me that, with the deletion of the scene with the Mertzes’ attempting Shakespeare, Fred only has a single line in the episode.
  18. According to Will & Grace creator Max Mutchnick, NBC Entertainment head Robert Greenblatt requested this episode when they had their first meeting about the reboot in 2016.
  19. New photos! https://www.broadwayworld.com/bwwtv/article/Photo-Flash-WILL-GRACE-Loves-Lucy-See-New-Photos-From-the-Set-20200401
  20. I was wondering that too. Hopefully it was Dance, Girl, Dance.
  21. Tiffany Haddish is on a Bill Frawley binge.
