Ricki Lake has struggled with her weight for years – so when she competited on “Dancing with the Stars” last year and was 120 pounds, you would have expected her to be happy – but she wasn’t.
“During ‘DWTS’ I was dancing seven hours a day. Now I’m not. When I was 120 I wasn’t healthy. I didn’t feel great.”
Happy to have gained a few extra pounds, Ricki has another factor keeping her happy and healthy, her husband Christian Evans – who she married in April – and has helped her become more confident.
“I went on my honeymoon and got healthy. My husband loves me and tells me I’m beautiful no matter what size I am.”
Ricki has been in and out of the spotlight for years, but she’s recently back in the spotlight with her new talk show “Ricki: The Ricki Lake Show“.
