What was Lucille Ball really like? Steve knew knew Lucy, and talks with Wanda Clark, her secretary of decades, who obviously knew her far better. Cate Blanchett will play Lucy in a movie soon to be made by Aaron Sorkin. People remain fascinated by Lucy, and her love affair with Desi Arnaz. We talk about why that interest in her life remains – even so many years after Lucy died. We talk about how it was that Steve came to know Wanda, and speak with Lucy so often. We tell a few anecdotes you for sure won’t read in any of those biographical books. Wanda tells “Steve some of those stories from the books about Lucy are true, some aren’t, and I know – after all, I was there.”
