Lucy Trivia

Lucille Ball, from I Love Lucy, was tossed out of drama school in New York when she was only 15 years old.The reason? Her instructors claimed that the future madcap comedienne was too quiet and shy.

I don't know if you know this...but I really do love Lucy. "I Love Lucy" remains my favorite show of all time, and I still cry from laughter when I watch some of those shows. Part of the reason I love Lucille Ball is that in many ways she was very shy, but learned to compensate with humor. Not that I can relate or anything. ;)
