Carol Burnett - Carol Burnett Still Missing Pal/idol Lucille Ball
TV icon Carol Burnett's birthdays have never been the same since her friend Lucille Ball passed away.
Ball always sent the comedienne flowers to mark her big day and the last bouquet that arrived for Burnett came hours after she had heard the news about the I Love Lucy star's death.
Burnett tells Access Hollywood Live, "Every year on my birthday, she would send me flowers; she gave me a baby shower for my second baby and she was on my show several times and then I guested on hers. We were really close.
"She died on my birthday. I remember getting up and seeing it (news) on the morning shows. It was out of the blue; she'd been sick, but they thought she was gonna come home... I got my flowers that afternoon."
