NATIONAL INQUIRER REVEALS DIRT ON BALL!!

 

Pregnancy story arc in season 2 of I Love Lucy was originally to involve the Mertzes and Mrs. Trumbull's secret plan to get Lucy's baby for their satanic cult. "Aunt Martha's Old Fashioned Salad Dressing" was to be called "Aunt Minnie's Old Fashioned Tannis Root Drink For Pregnant Women". CBS was about to go along with the idea but stopped when they were uncertain if audiences would be offended by the Lucy character's short blonde haircut from Vidal Sassoon.

 

Season four of The Lucy Show to remain in Danfield. The plot would still be reworked, however, to focus on Lucy and Viv's promiscuous liasons. The series would now be titled "The Dyke Sans Dick Show"

 

Hazel Pierce comes clean on drug abuse: "I was stoned during the musical number in Lucy Plays Cleopatra!"

 

Tapes with 184 episodes of "Bungle Abbey" found in vault. Reportedly, they were to air in syndication had the series been picked up.

 

CBS Confused as to how Ball was able to tape 184 sitcom episodes under their noses.

 

Gordon Confesses: Ball would use her key to sneak the cast onto the soundstage after-hours. "She was really convinced that they were going to pick up the show."

 

MPI to release complete series set of "Bungle Abbey", predicting it to be a hot seller. Still no word on Life With Lucy.

 

Final episode of "Life With Lucy" unearthed; would reveal that The Lucy Show, Here's Lucy, and Life With Lucy were all a dream that Lucy Ricardo had. The final scene would be in the Westport Connecticut bedroom and feature a cameo by Desi Arnaz.  Final line would be "You really should wear more sweaters."

After practically appearing in every third episode of ILL and TLS from 1951, Hazel last appears on TLS in 1967 before emerging looking markedly different on Here's Lucy in 1972, before disappearing forever... leading to speculation on what happened during Hazel's "lost years".
