She’s back America!! Ricki Lake is coming back to daytime television!
Premiering on September 10th, The Ricki Lake Show brings America’s girlfriend back to TV. Covering topics that interest the modern-day woman, this is a new Ricki – reflecting where she and her audience are now in their lives. Fresh, fun, interesting talk that will cover subjects that range from parenting, weight loss, beauty, career, losing love and finding it again. Ricki is not an expert. She’s not a doctor, therapist or a super homemaker – she’s a working mom trying to figure life out, and inviting her audience along for the ride.
A pop culture icon who has built a career on her candid, “straight talk” sensibility and her authentic, relatable nature, Ricki Lake has maintained a worldwide fan base that is a true cross-section of age and ethnicity. Her approachable appeal has charmed international movie and television audiences for more than two decades, and she has managed to reinvent herself at every stage of her career. As “Tracy Turnblad,” the zaftig heroine of the original John Waters’ film HAIRSPRAY, Lake made an acting début that positioned her as an “entertainer to watch” in Hollywood. Later, with a surprise turn as a talk show host, she met with unprecedented success and earned her place as a beloved media personality across the globe.
Poised to make a much-anticipated return to TV with an all-new talk show from Twentieth Television in September 2012, Lake has also completed work on a memoir, NEVER SAY NEVER: FINDING A LIFE THAT FITS, for Simon & Schuster’s Atria imprint, on shelves now. She has, in addition, become an online voice for mothers, providing editorial contributions to outlets including Momformation – all while showcasing her dancing ability as a beloved finalist on Season 13 of ABC’s DANCING WITH THE STARS.
Don’t miss the all new The Ricki Lake Show coming to CW44 this September 10th at 4pm!
