"Lucille Ball`s hometown, just outside Jamestown in western New York, erected a life-size statue to honor the beloved actress " but now it has some explaining to do.
Many take issue with the sculptor`s unflattering depiction of the "I Love Lucy` star. "
Lucille Ball was drop-dead gorgeous, she started her show business career working as a model. Beauty can be a handicap for a comedic actress, but Ball was so hilarious that we kind of forgot that she was stunning.
Lucille Ball`s statue looks nothing at all like the beloved sit-com actress; it`s a hideous thing that scares the Bejesus out of the upright citizens of Ball`s hometown.
The statue references the iconic scene where Lucy gets drunk imbibing from a bottle of Vitameatavegamin. But this statue makes the legendary comic look like a homeless woman brandishing a bottle of cheap liquor.
The artist responsible for this abomination should be tarred and feathered, burned at the stake, crucified, and have his remains fed to Rosie O`Donnell.
I love Lucy with a passion and I hate this execrable statue more than anything else in the world.
