Ricki Lake meeting with Lucille Ball

The Hollywood producer Ricki Lake recalls her meeting with Lucille at the backstage of Oscar awards in 1989. As described by her, the icon was quite salty towards her and even let out her wrath on her. Lucille was smoking relentlessly while dealing with Ricki.

The reason for such coldness from this lovely lady was that she looked unhappy for being there. As published on Fox News, Ricki remarked:

She was not nice. Salty is just like putting it mildly. We were in the same cardboard green room.

Sadly, shortly after this not-so-successful award show, the comedian passed away. However, Ms. Lake is not the only one who had complained about Lucille Ball behavior.

Richard Burton didn't like her as well

The actor Richard Burton used to write frustratedly. His diaries are published and edited by  Chris Williams at Yale University. As mentioned in his journals, he found Lucille to be selfish and self-centered. His Thursday, May 17th, 1970, Beverly Hills Hotel entry, posted by The Intermediate Period reads:

I loathed her the first day. I loathed her the second day and the third. I loathe her today but now I also pity her. After tonight I shall make a point of never seeing her again.
