Lucille Ball's Children Praise Her Talents

Desi Arnaz, Jr. and his sister, Lucie, had nothing but good things to say about their famously, funny, mother, Lucille Ball, at the Fifth Annual TV Land Awards Show.

ScrippsNews reported:

On the red carpet before the show, the siblings talked about what made their mom and "I Love Lucy" so funny.

"It was written well, first of all," Lucie Arnaz said. "It's not shtick. It's believable situations, and she was so good at it."

Desi Jr. said he and his sister learned the tricks of the trade, including waiting for the laughs from a studio audience, when they played the children of Ball's character on "Here's Lucy."

The Fifth Annual TV Land Awards Show will air April 22 at 9:00 PM Eastern on TV Land. The show will repeated that same night at 11:00 PM Eastern on Nick at Nite.
