Eight months after announcing her engagement to Christian Evans, Ricki Lake is a married woman. She eloped with her fiance, according to reports!
“They had been planning on doing it this way and didn’t want a big spectacle,” a source explained to Us. “Ricki is so happy! She really found love again.”
Lake dropped a not-so-subtle hint on Twitter Tuesday with a fuzzy but stunning shot of herself, clad in a lacy wedding gown and holding a bouquet.
That could be construed as a wedding announcement of sorts:
“Yup, this is me,” the actress and talk show host, 43, Tweeted along with the photoMore >
J.R. Martinez made his case for the Mirror Ball on the final night of performances on Dancing With the Stars. But will America deliver it for him this evening?
After suffering an injury last week, but the 28-year-old Iraq War vet, soap opera star and motivational speaker gave it his all in the cha cha and the freestyle.
The judges weren’t in agreement on his first dance with partner Karina Smirnoff. The duo earned a 7 from Len, and 8 from Carrie Ann and a 9 from Bruno.
One thing the judges could agree on, however, was Martinez’s freestyle. He earned a perfect 30, leaving him a tie forMore >
The 13th season of Dancing With the Stars has come down to one night.
Ricki Lake. Rob Kardashian. J.R. Martinez. All worthy parquet performers, as we know, but there can be only one Mirror Ball holder at the end of this. Who will it be?
Apparently no one told Rob that J.R. and Ricki were the consensus picks all season long, or that he was a 4-1 underdog headed into the final Monday of the season.
Because he’s in sole possession of the lead right now!
His lead is only three points over both competitors, so this is going down to the wire. But who thought Rob Kardashian would be here now,More >
Performing last in each portion Monday night, Ricki and Derek did their best to quash the competition on Dancing With the Stars. Each time, they were successful.
Their samba was fun and fabulous, with Bruno calling it “sizzling hot, bright and brilliant from beginning to end.” The others agreed. Three perfect 10s for 30.
Then it was on to the Argentine tango, a smooth, graceful effort that seamlessly meshed footwork with emotion and landed them just a point shy of perfection.
Are we looking at the next Mirror Ball holder? You tell us:More >
Thanks to Nancy Grace, Ricki Lake should advance to next week on Dancing With the Stars without a problem. Still, her confidence took a bit of a hit Monday night.
The front-runner didn’t fare too well during her instant jive, earning her lowest score from the judges in weeks. Backstage afterward, she was clearly discouraged.
“Right now, my ego,” she said when asked what hurt most.
“I’m just covered in bruises, same old, same old. I don’t want to complain,” she said, adding “[J.R. Martinez] was amazing. My vote would be with himMore >
Add Ricki Lake to the list of celebrities who have participated in what has become America’s unofficial celebrity weight loss show: Dancing With the Stars.
She may not have lost the 100 pounds boasted by one recent finalist (check out these Kirstie Alley weight loss pics), but Lake has certainly slimmed down.
You can see difference from the pre-season promo pic to the present:
Ricki Lake has lost 20 pounds of weight on DWTS.
Lake is clearly enjoying her thinner frame, and looking healthy and wonderful while doing it. Ricki’s also maintaining a healthy attitude towards the process.
One point. That’s all that separated Ricki Lake from perfection last night.
Taking over the top spot for the second straight week on Dancing With the Stars, Lake bested her nearest competitor, J.R. Martinez, by three whole points.
Say what you will about her Hairspray background, it takes quite a display to execute a near-flawless tango to the music from … Psycho. Ricki did just that.
Clad in black along with partner Derek Hough, Lake showed some astounding body control, precise steps and the perfect level of emotion for the routine.

Rob Kardashian may have been the night’s most improved dancer, but Ricki Lake’s flashy moves during the jive earned her the highest score of the night.
The Dancing With the Stars contender, who scored a 23 to lead the pack, is happy about that result – but even more pleased about her shrinking body.
Lake, who said she was inspired by former contestant Kirstie Alley’s weight loss on DWTS last season, has already dropped 12 pounds and several sizes.
“I’m really getting in great shape,” the talk show host said afterward. “I’ll be wearing less and less clothing. The smaller I get, the lessMore >
The headline above is, admittedly, a bit misleading.
Ricki Lake suffered a cut and a nasty bruise on her shin Thursday while rehearsing for the new season of Dancing with the Stars with partner Derek Hough.
She’s not out of the competition by any means, but she did Tweet a photo of the wound, so … here we are. Check out the season’s first battle scar:
Lake, who said upon being cast that she was terrified to participate in the ABC show, is considered one of the favorites going in … or at least was.
Who knows if this will throw her off her game.
An ambulance was called, but Lake downplayedMore >
Chaz Bono’s joining the Dancing With the Stars cast gave the show major publicity, but it wasn’t just done as a stunt or a favor to the LGBT community.
Based on what we know of past seasons and those who have made long runs on the show, Chaz – if he can dance at all – could be among the favorites.
Below, THG breaks down the prospects for the man formerly known as Chastity Bono (with girlfriend Jennifer Ella, below) and the rest of the dancers …
Favorites: David Arquette, Chaz Bono, Ron Artest, Hope Solo, Ricki Lake
