But even if they didn't, that's their job, to "pretend" it, lol.

See, I don't see that. I see her playing Dorothy as written. So I'm glad I don't let a different thought affect my enjoyment of it since it's one of my favorite shows.

No no, with "rumors" I meant if anyone had started a rumor about Nancy and Lisa, as an example. I know Bea wasn't "fond" of Betty, as Betty puts it. With what's been shared, I think that fits more than "disliked" (I really remember a Larry King interview Betty did).

Well Bea was sooooo unhappy the last couple of seasons doing GG. So no wonder a change was a relief, lol.

Yeah, I haven't actively watched L in years. And I always "liked" Lucy but loved Ethel.

And how many networks have editors doing the trimming that appreciated these classic shows? Or worst, old enough to remember them. God 80s we're getting so old
We're just..."maturing". I just delve into my favorite '80s shows too much to think about it!
