11 Facts About Lucy and Desi That Will Completely Change How You Look at I Love Lucy
Decades before duos like Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston captivated fans and covered what seemed to be every magazine, there were Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. The term "celebrity power couple" hadn't yet become a thing, but the two stars of Hollywood's golden era were the epitome of one - or so it seemed. It was hard not to love them (they starred in a show called I Love Lucy, after all). Their onscreen chemistry mirrored their real-life marriage, but when the cameras stopped rolling, so did the charm. Lucy and Desi, who first met in 1940, went on to have a tumultuous 20-year marriage. And even after they split, the pair - who had two children together, Lucie and Desi Jr. - remained in each other's lives until Desi's death in 1986. Despite their split, they were (and still are) one of the most fascinating and beloved Hollywood couples of all time.
