I don't know exactly what this sentence is saying. The actual fact is that Vivian Vance was born in 1909, two years before Lucille Ball in 1911, so how could she have ever been younger?

Actually, she was already thin and wearing a more attractive hairstyle by the fifth season of I Love Lucy, long before the hour shows began. She was almost getting too thin and attractive because it got a little hard sometimes to believe someone looking like that would be married to Fred Mertz.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I just always thought it was funny how they tried to say she was suppose to look so much older and heavier than Lucy during the ILL years, but she wasn't and didn't.

If anyone aged rapidly, it was Lucy. She looked awful in the hour long shows.

You know, people looked older back then
(today 50 looks 30, 70 looks 50)
and you are right, heavy wasn't all that "fat" back then.

(example- Jackie Gleason was round and portrayed as heavy when originally playing Ralph, however, compared to Billy Gadell or Kevin James, Ralph Kramden is downright skinny.
