The last days of Lucille Ball

Recommended Posts

She never went home from the hospital. Just another idiot writer who doesn't get their facts straight.

Well..."Mental Floss" should tell you something! Too bad stuff like this - easily fact-checked - gets out in the ether, and becomes taken face value as fact...and it's over 5 years old already! Sad.

Is this article true? I thought she never got to go home. And interesting about this supposed party at the house next door. 

 

I think this writer is conflating two events:  Lucy's 1988 stroke, from which she recovered and did, indeed, go back home; and the April 1989 hospitalization from which she didn't recover and didn't return home.
