TYLER, TX (KLTV) - A lot of East Texans had some "'splainin" to do in Tyler. Residents at the Prestige Estates celebrated Mother's Day with an "I Love Lucy" party. The highlight was of course, the Lucy look-a-like contest, where folks put their best face forward to resemble the TV icon.

"She was a screwball," said Anita Dent. "She didn't have good sense in a way, but she was so funny, so funny."

The celebration even included a re-enactment of the shows infamous candy-factory episode.
