My Funny Valentine: Lucille Désirée Ball (1 of 14)

This is a seasonal segment called “My Funny Valentine:…”. 14 comediennes who make my heart go boom.

Lucille Désirée Ball

Our first Funny Valentine is Lucille Ball. Most see Lucy as a bungling mischievous red head who refused to stay away from Ricky’s club but she first began her career as a model, eventually making her way to Broadway.

She has one of the longest spanning career in Hollywood. Even since I was 8 years old I’ve had crush on Lucy, her blue eyes and red hair spoke to me despite them being in black and white. If only I’d been born in Jamestown, New York in 1911.
