* NiceCharacterMeanActor: In a way. While Lucy Ricardo was a kind and kooky woman, Lucille Ball was a consummate professional who could perform comedy brilliantly, but wasn't "funny" in real life. She was also a bit temperamental and reportedly had a need to be dominated to really thrive.

* LoveAtFirstSight: Essentially a real life example with Arnaz, though Ball herself quipped, "It wasn't love at first sight. It took a full five minutes."

* InsistentTerminology: Lucille Ball was a ''comedic actress,'' not a comedian. She openly stated she did not write her own material, and stuck to the scripts when she got them. As she said, "I don't walk around with a bunch of jokes in my back pocket."

* ISophagus: Was the originator of a myth that filled teeth can pick up radio signals. She claimed in an interview that she once started hearing music when she drove past a radio station, despite the car's radio not being on, and discovered that her fillings were picking up the transmission. Needless to say, radios don't work that way.

Lucille Désirée Ball was an American comedienne, actress, model, and film and television executive. She appeared on stage, screen and radio, but is primarily known as one of the most popular and influential television stars of all time.

Born August 6, 1911, she spent most of her childhood in or near Jamestown, New York. She became involved in show business by performing as a chorus girl in a [[BrotherhoodOfFunnyHats Shriners]] show at age 12. After attending drama school she found work as a fashion model and actress in New York City. In the 1930s she moved to Hollywood and began appearing in small movie roles. Eventually she moved up to starring in [[BMovie B-movies]], so many in fact that she came to be known as "Queen of the B's." Among her better known films are ''Film/StageDoor'' and ''Film/FiveCameBack''. She also worked in the theater and in radio.

In 1940 she met and eloped with bandleader Desi Arnaz. 1948 saw her cast in a successful radio program called ''My Favorite Husband'' which Creator/{{CBS}} soon decided to develop for television. She insisted that Arnaz be cast as her husband on the show and, after a [[{{Vaudeville}} vaudeville]] tour to prove that the pairing worked, CBS agreed. ''Series/ILoveLucy'' ensued. It was followed by two more successful sitcoms which extended her television career through 1974. During this time she continued to appear occasionally in movies and on Broadway. She also co-founded Creator/DesiluStudios with Desi.

Attempts at a television come-back in the [[TheEighties 1980s]] failed. She died on April 26, 1989 at the age of 77.
