There has been alot of speculation that Desi cheated on Lucy, but the only time that it was proven was right before "I Love Lucy" began. It has been recorded that Lucy and Desi were separated for much of the first decade of their marriage, due to his travels, alcohol abuse, and outside marital affairs. Lucy wanted to save their marriage, so they created the "I Love Lucy" pilot, hoping that the studio would be impressed and turn the pilot into a series. Lucy wanted to work side by side with Desi to keep him busy, hoping he wouldn't have time for other women, but also to keep track of him. They were set to get a divorce but reconciled right before the series began. Desi however did not change his ways and right after the last lucy-desi comedy hour "Lucy Meets the Moustache" was filmed Lucy filed for divorce.
I believe she was told that she was too shy. Plus she couldn't sing or dance (at least she couldn't at the time).
From what I have read in the bios - Vivian was not physical abused but was told she had to put on weight -I think like 10-15 lbs more also Viv was younger than Lucy but was made up to look older they where trying to take the limelight off Vivian - Viv was also dressed in housewife dresses -so Lucy looked alot better in her clothes -until way later I think on Lucy's other shows - than there where no limits for Viv - Lucy just wanted her to return and act with her

No. Despite the stars being married in real life as well as on the show, television censorship rules at the time (I Love Lucy ran from 1951 to 1960) didn't permit the showing of a couple sharing the same bed.
This odd requirement (by today's standards) was finally overturned in 1964, with the debut of programs such as The Munsters and Bewitched.
There are episodes where they seem to be sharing a bed, though it looks like two twins that have been pushed together, with a division down the middle of the bed. It does give the appearance of a double bed though.
Yes. It says, "You've Come Home".
Lucille Desiree Ball was originally from Jamestown, NY. She lived and worked in New York City for a couple of years, fashion modeling and acting. Then in 1933 at age 22, she moved to Hollywood permanently. She went there for a career in the movies (pretty gutsy for the middle of the depression) and did a number of movies in the thirties and forties. She earned the nickname 'Queen of the Bs' because she did so many B (low budget) movies. In 1948, she was hired to play a wacky wife on the CBS radio comedy program 'My Favorite Husband'. The program was very successful and CBS asked her to help develop a program for the new fangled TV; and in 1951, 'I Love Lucy' went on the air.
*The stars of the show "I Love Lucy" were:
-Lucille Ball- who played "Lucy Ricardo" The bandleader's (Ricky) housewife.
-Desi Arnaz- Who played Lucy's husband "Ricky Ricardo" (Desi was actually Lucy's husband in real life, but they just changed his character name on the show).
-Vivian Vance- Who played "Mrs. Ethel Mertz." Lucy and Ricky's Landlady; and married to Fred.
-William Frawley- Who played "Mr. Fred Mertz." Lucy and Ricky's Landlord; and married to Ethel.
He was a band leader .
Desiree "De-De" Hunt Ball re-married after her first husband (Lucy's biological father) died. Her effort to end one a romance Lucy was involved, but of which DeDe did not approve, was to have Lucy sent to acting school. DeDe eventually died in 1977.
Desi (or Deshi; pronounced [ˈd̪eːsi] or [ˈd̪eːʃi], Hindi: देसी, Urdu: دیسی, Punjabi: ਦੇਸੀ, دیسی) is a word originally from Sanskrit literally meaning "from the country" or "of the country". In North America and Great Britain, desi is used colloquially to mean South Asian immigrants and their descendants. It is mainly used by those of South Asian origins themselves, rarely by the majority population, and carries a subtext of inclusiveness and unity. It allows South Asians to refer to their broader immigrant community, rather than requiring a specific, nationalistic label such as "Indian" or "Pakistani". As such, its connotations are positive, alluding to the shared values, bonds and experiences of descendants of the entire region. This self-referential colloquialism was created in the United Kingdom during the early 1960s to late 1980s and, in the UK is sometimes pronounced "Dezi."
That was Lucille Ball. She gave birth to her real son, Desidero Alberto Arnaz y Acha IV, the same as Lucy Ricardo gave birth to Little Ricky in "Lucy Goes to the Hospital".
