teenageluminary Posted September 19, 2021 Report Share Posted September 19, 2021 Quote Rumor has it that Viv was approached about returning for Here's, but I haven't confirmed that. Was LBP too cheap to expand their cast beyond the four of them? If so, too bad. (And with Lucie and Desi getting meager scale, there should have been cast money left over). Geoffrey Mark Fidelman says in his book that Viv was approached about returning to "Here's Lucy" in 1972, but that Viv turned it down because she was diagnosed with breast cancer. But there a number of inaccuracies in Fidelman's book, so I'm not sure if that's true. For her part, Lucie Arnaz has said in interviews that part of the reason why Viv didn't work with Lucy for several years after "With Viv As A Friend, Who Needs An Enemy?" aired in 1972 is because Viv had health issues.
