Singleton in March (Valerie Macon/Getty Images)Doris Singleton, best known for her role in "I Love Lucy," has died at the age of 92.



The New York City native got her start in showbiz as a ballerina and a
vocalist. A chance meeting with Lucille Ball on a radio show in 1948 led
the two women to strike up a working relationship that would span
decades. Ball cast Singleton in her 1950s starring vehicle, "I Love
Lucy"; Singleton played the recurring role of Carolyn Appleby, Lucy and
Ricky Ricardo's neighbor, known for bragging about her son, Stevie. The
women worked together again several times, including on "The Lucy Show,"
"Here's Lucy," "Make Room for Granddaddy," and the "Bob Hope Christmas
Special."

    She did outlive Lucy by quite a few years.

    Sorry we've lost another old favorite. She and Lucy were hilarious competing over their little boys ..."When do you think he'll reach normal size?" I also still hear Doris on some of my old radio tapes. She was great.

    I do remember "Carolyn Appleby." I'm saddened to hear about her passing away.
