1. For her infamous quote: “Once in his life, every man is entitled to fall madly in love with a gorgeous redhead.”
2. She loved coloring her hair with henna. Even her hairstylist, Irma Kusely, was instructed to keep her hair dye under lock and key. “I call it apricot but a lot of people think of it as red. It’s not red at all. It’s a golden apricot color. We used regular hair dye when I did her own hair. We then used as a balance, a henna rinse, which she was famous for,” said Kusely.
3. Who doesn’t love the classic hit show, “I Love Lucy.” Out of the hundreds of episodes that aired, ‘The Chocolate Scene’ had to be one of the funniest:
