Having A Ball: The Diet

August 30th, 2021 · 43 mins 21 secs

About this Episode

The hosts discuss the third episode of season one The Diet. They discuss the pressure on women and absurdity that Lucy sees herself as 'too big' and goes to extremes to lose weight.
Lucy's ultimate goal is to be in Ricky's show, of course, but once comparing herself to others auditioning, Erika and Ziva talk about how that still resonates to women and society today.
The biggest treat is we get to hear and see the Cuban Pete and Sally Sweet number Desi and Lucille performed around the country while proving to the network that audiences would love and embrace them... and we have for nearly 6 decades!
