Last night on Dancing With The Stars on ABC, Ricki Lake had a great performance, and if you noticed more sparkle in her eyes, that is because Derek Hough is helping Ricki Lake work on her confidence. Read on to find out more…
Dancing With The Stars contestant, Ricki Lake obviously has a twinkle in her eye as she is currently planning her wedding, but did you know that Derek Hough has been trying to get Ricki to focus on her confidence? That could very well be why she lit up the stage last night, looking more confident than last week. Derek Hough recently told People Magazine, that Ricki Lake was focusing too much on being like Kirstie Alley, and that she needed to focus more on herself and her confidence, as he told the magazine: “I told her, ‘No more.’ I said, ‘This is about you. This is now time.’”
Ricki Lake, who says she is getting more confidence in herself as she goes along, responded to Derek Hough’s comment by saying: “That’s probably good advice. I really love working with Derek. He’s such a good teacher, and I’m learning so much. He encourages me. I feel like I’m learning that way. He’s really intuitive with me.” We definitely saw more confidence in Ricki Lake this week – could she be the one to beat this season on Dancing With The Stars?
