Did You Know?
Everybody has a unique, interesting story to tell. I think what people can take away from this is that their story isn't any less valuable than mine, or my mother's. And because she had fame, that did not make her life that much easier or luckier. She had lots of perks. I doubt she would have traded what she had. But it wasn't all that easy. A lot is expected of people who have that kind of fame....
Her mother wanted to name her after her cousin Suzan Ball
, but her father wanted her to have her mother's name as an honor to her. When Ball drifted off to sleep, Arnaz wrote the name "Lucie" on her birth certificate. He chose to spell her name differently to distinguish mother and daughter apart from one another.
