Lucille Ball's Hometown Replaces 'Scary Lucy' Statue With A New & Improved Sculpture Of The Comedienne — LOOK!
THIS IS SO MUCH BETTER!
Over the weekend, a statue honoring Lucille Ball was unveiled in the late comedienne's hometown of Celoron, New York. Why is this such a big deal?
Well, previously there was a different sculpture paying tribute to the I Love Lucy star and it was infamously known as "Scary Lucy". In fact, while the "scary" statue itself became a tourist attraction for the New York town, many residents were desperate to have it replaced as it didn't properly depict Lucille's greatness. Yep, the statue was THAT terrifying.
Nonetheless, the town's Mayor Scott Schrecengost, along with the sculptor Carolyn Palmer, revealed the new work in the Lucille Ball Memorial Park on what would've been the TV icon's 105th birthday. LOVES it!
