Ricki Lake is ready to dance till she drops!!! Ricki Lake is appearing on the 13Th season of DWTS.  Let's hope she can stay on long enough to fit into her favorite pair of skinny jeans. If Ricki has her way she will be able to follow in the footsteps of Kirstie Alley, who dropped 60 lbs. I don't believe Ricki has that far to go,  but I understand her point. To date Ricki has dropped 8 inches from her body with the five hour practices. Keep up the good work and keep on dancing.
