Lucille Ball, 1911

102 years ago on this day, the beautiful, hilarious, and charming Lucille Ball was born. She won our hearts as the mischievous housewife, Lucy Ricardo, in I Love Lucy and continued her successful showbiz career even after the quintessential sitcom. Her company, Desilu Productions, produced hits such as The Dick Van Dyke Show.

Luckily, Lucille Ball’s contributions to the entertainment business did not go unrecognized. She was the first woman to win the International Radio and Television Society’s Gold Medal, and she won four Emmys.

Still one of the funniest scenes on television. Click here to watch the famous scene.

I’m happy that I have brought laughter because I have been shown by many the value of it in so many lives, in so many ways.
