Who would have guessed Lucille Ball was a big fan of Tom Cruise! Tom’s ties to Paramount are deeper than we realized. Years ago, after Risky Business was released, Lucille Ball and her husband Gary Morton produced Tom’s next film, “All The Right Moves.” The Mortons and Cruise were considered an odd pairing at that time in Hollywood, but Lucy liked Tom and once described him as “a clean cut all American kid.” Eventually, Tom moved his offices into the enormous Lucille Ball building at Paramount and by the time he left last week, he was occupying the entire structure. So he must be feeling some sentimental twinges.

    Lucy knew talent when she saw it.
    Miss her.

    Or maybe Lucy wanted to give a young gay actor a chance to succeed.

    The Tom Lucy met back then is not the Tom of today. And I am so tired of hearing how much talent he has. He hasn’t made a decent picture in years.

    Never realized that Lucy produced “All The Right Moves” in which Tom showed his penis. I wonder how she felt about that or if she ever realized, probably the latter. I like the Tom Snow title song by Jennifer Warnes and some guy I can never remember his name.

    I think she liked him because she was a big pain in the ass herself. I used to think she was almost a saint until an actor, who had no reason to lie, said he was sitting behind her on plane and she kept accusing him of kicking the back of her seat. The actor said he was so short he couldn’t even REACH the back of her seat (first class, lots of leg room). He said he assured her that he was not doing what she was accusing him of but she didn’t listen and tried to sic GAry Morton on him. I am so glad that Desi Sr gave her a run for her money. He probably knocked her down a peg or too.

    There are tons of horror stories about the monster Lucy. Not a happy or funny woman offscreen. Ask Patty Duke.

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?


    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
