Back in Lucy's day she was a knockout. She looks better with dark or BLONDE hair. I think she's natural blonde

CraigSnyderMay 3, 2013

She is a cultural icon who showed that it's OK for a beautiful woman to be funny.

Lucille Ball never had any kind of hookup or realationship with Eddie Fisher. The only thing the two shared is that both had a story about them in TV STAR Parade Mag. Sept. 1954 issue!
