Once married to the late actor Rory Calhoun, she played Ricky’s former dance partner from Cuba on an episode of 'I Love Lucy.'

Lita Baron, the effervescent Spanish-born singer, dancer, actress and former wife of Hollywood leading man Rory Calhoun, has died. She was 92.

Baron, who appeared in more than a dozen features and performed at such legendary Hollywood hotspots as Ciro’s and The Mocambo, died Dec. 16 in Palm Springs of complications from a broken hip, her family announced.

On a 1952 episode of I Love Lucy, she played the bombshell Renita Perez, Ricky’s former dance partner from Cuba, and made Lucy quite jealous.
