Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz were a real-life couple that played one on TV too. Even though they seemed like the perfect couple in I Love Lucy, things were far from perfect at home. Now, their daughter, Lucie Arnaz is speaking out about her parent’s often tumultuous relationship and marriage.

Ultimately, the two divorced twice after Desi repeatedly cheated on Lucille. Lucille filed for divorce in 1944, just four years after they got married. They got back together and in 1950, Lucille cast Desi in her new show.

Things seemed great for a while and they had two children together. However, things soon fell apart. Their daughter, Lucie explains, “They were fighting all the time. Their divorce was horrible. And then there was the alcoholism. We didn’t have any abuse, but we did go through some pretty hard stuff and that’s why my parents didn’t stay together.”
