LucyWatch Update

From the Associated Press:

LOS ANGELES (AP) — An auction house selling Lucille Ball memorabilia says it is returning the actress' lifetime achievement awards to her daughter.

Heritage Auction Galleries says a deal reached Saturday will return the awards to Lucie Arnaz Luckinbill, Ball's daughter with first husband Desi Arnaz.

A sale of dozens of other Ball-related memorabilia will happen Saturday. Items up for bid include a Rolls Royce and love letters to second husband Gary Morton.

The deal announced Saturday ends a legal fight between Luckinbill and Susie Morton, who married Gary Morton after Ball's death in 1989.

A judge agreed to stop the auction Friday but imposed a high bond Luckinbill couldn't meet.

She has said the awards will be displayed in a museum honoring her mother.

And for being such a [really naughty expletive deleted] about all this in the first place, Susie Morton has been sentenced to a week of watching Life with Lucy reruns non-stop.

(Okay…I made that last part up.)

What a mess. You gotta wonder why neither Lucy nor Gary willed her kids those items, or why Gary didn't just give them to the kids when Lucy died.
