Last night, we learned that Ricki Lake was among the celebrity cast for season 13 of Dancing With The Stars on ABC, but newly engaged Ricki is actually terrified to do the show. What’s that all about? Keep reading to find out!
Ricki Lake has signed on to compete on Dancing With The Stars this season, but the former talk show hosts says she is terrified of competing on the show. Why? We’re assuming it’s just a case of the jitters as Ricki Lake said: “I’m more than a little nervous. I’m actually terrified.” But, despite being “terrified,” Ricki Lake also made it known in a video that she is extremely excited and looking forward to the competition as well.
Like Ron Kardashian, Ricki Lake is also looking forward to the weight loss that usually comes along with the competition, but her inspiration is actually last season’s fan favorite, Kirstie Alley. Ricki went on to add of Kirstie: “She was a big inspiration for me last season. I’m hoping I do half as well as she did.” Rici Lake also knocked down theories that her portrayal in the movie “Hairspray” actually meant she could dance, as she explains that she had no formal dance training and says that in the movie she was “faking it.”
