Linda Purl on her former in-laws:

PC: Another great lady of the stage and screen I would love to hear your recollections of is your former mother-in-law Lucille Ball. What was she like one-on-one?

 

LP: Oh, she was great. You know, I knew her after she had not been working for a certain amount of time - she had chosen to stop working. In my interactions with her, I found that she was a very strong woman who was very smart, very loving, extremely family-orientated and a great backgammon player.

 

PC: She had had quite a life. Was she hard on you at all?

 

LP: Well, I honestly have to say that I never saw any of that with her - I can’t speak to any of that, but she really struck me as a very strong woman with a lot of strength of character. She had a beautiful life and really treasured her family - and she was always very loving to me.

 

PC: Desi, Jr. will be joining you at Feinstein’s, correct?

 

LP: Yes. Desi, Jr. will be on percussion.

 

PC: Obviously, your relationship remains amicable, post-divorce.

 

LP: Oh, of course - I’ve just been so blessed to have such a close friendship with him, and, also his lovely wife, Amy. They have been together for more than twenty-five years now. Desi, Jr. is just an incredible musician - he is phenomenal.

 

PC: What was Desi, Sr. like, from what you remember?

 

LP: Well, I don’t think he was ever tested for it, but I suspect that if he had been he would have been categorized as a genius.

 

PC: He was a true pioneer.

 

LP: He wasn’t a linear thinker - you know, somebody would come to him with a problem and he would go way outside the box, but he had this capacity to approach problem-solving from the underside of a brick wall; just a huge, huge talent. Again, I did not know him when he was working, I knew him much later in his life when he was having a very lovely, calm, quiet life by the seaside in Mexico.

I went to the show tonight and it was excellent! Linda Purl is a terrific singer and picked some great songs. The show really came alive with Desi. He is a phenomenal musician! Wow. The audience was amazed by his talent. Lucie was in the audience and it was great to see the two of them together.
